You’re shipping orders, great! Now what…?

Date: 2/19/2014 11AM CST

The technology of today does not change that age old concept but it makes delivery a more productive and efficient process. Mobile apps like myDeliveries play a vital part in bringing technologies such as bio-metric signatures, geo-location, Proof of Delivery, and Proof of Condition into one simple eco-system that ties it all back into SAP. Combining your SAP backend to a mobile front end might seem like a daunting task but well be able to show you that its not. Prep for the webinar by installing the myDeliveries app from the app store!
