The secret to providing proof of delivery in shipping

Businesses that oversee fleets of workers and vehicles need accurate information to hone their competitive edge. We’re enabling Paragon to streamline deliveries, and heighten the brand experience.

We live in an age with an immense amount of location information. When we want to know where a store is, nearly any connected device can locate it in a matter of seconds. When we want to know if it’s faster to drive or take the train, apps instantly tell us the more time-efficient choice. When we summon a car service, apps tell us where that car is, the license plate, and how long it will be before the driver arrives.

Business owners need access to these same types of information. Real-time tracking and highly accurate communications have become increasingly common consumer expectations. As a result, delivery operations across most industries are now under pressure to provide highly detailed delivery information.
