Empowering Couriers with a Single Blackberry Device

MD Anderson, a top cancer care hospital in the U.S. has a courier service that handles between 7,500 and 8,000 deliveries a month.

They have enpowered 11 drivers with the Blackberry Curve 8350i device and EnterMoCase barcode scanning and signature capture cases

Charles E. Baker III, the hospital’s supervisor of logistics services, oversees MD Anderson’s courier service says
“We needed to be able to communicate with our drivers, and I didn’t want them to have to carry two or three different devices to do their job,”

They were looking for was one device that could capture all the data that needed to be captured, and be able to communicate with the drivers and at roughly $750 a unit for 11 units , the upfront costs was minimal.

Also, Actsoft’s Comet Tracker was used to view each driver’s location. This allows them the ability to track their drivers via GPS and then send them jobs as and when needed.
