With AFS ePoD, you can boost your operational efficiencies and maximize customer service while reducing costs and increasing your revenue.
AFS ePoD is available for both Android and iOS. It is used in the field to track a product’s activity from warehouse to customer delivery, supporting just-in-time electronic delivery confirmation including signature capture, photos, and GPS coordinates. Advanced features include the ability to track truck inventory on a real-time basis and provide the detailed level of customer account information that enables your personnel to make fast and precise deliveries.
The AFS supply chain management suite of products also contains:
- AFS ePoD Office – a Web-based application used to manage in-field activities performed by the sales and delivery team, as well as stand-alone functionality (if needed) to support inventory management, order management/generation and production.

“Our goal is for you to master delivery. We don’t want to give you a product that will only improve your work life a little. We want you to have a product that allows you to overcome the hurdles that plague your business every day,” stresses Gennadiy Vaksman, vice president of SCM/RE global operations. “We want you to be confident that ePoD can help you resolve or prevent late deliveries, shorted products, lost time, needless spending, paper waste, and customer frustrations.”
