Electronic Proof of
We recently invested in 49 electronic ePod devices which are now live on the road. Every order is now scanned on and off our vehicles ensuring a full audit trail and eliminating the possibility of incomplete deliveries. This system also reduces paperwork and enables us to capture and retrieve proof of delivery with every delivery made.
We are now in the process of integrating the ePod devices with our Microlise system, so every time a delivery is made, the Microlise system will receive a notification from the ePod with both the time of arrival and departure. We aim to develop this further so we are in a position to provide an accurate real-time delivery estimate for each and every one of our deliveries each day.
We are partnering with an ever-growing list of suppliers to give our customers access to an unprecedented range of products, all within the familiar ordering environment and convenience of your normal Caterite delivery. If you prefer the more traditional methods of ordering and would like to still place your orders over the phone with our customer service team, you can still take full advantage of Connect.
Wherever you see the Connect logo, you will see underneath an estimated delivery date. This delivery date is customised to you and your delivery schedule. If you are happy with this date, simply add to your basket and confirm your delivery preferences and we’ll take care of the rest. Customers will experience an improved shopping and browsing experience as you are able to explore more products, focusing on current trends, innovation and local produce.
