Mobilizing the Last Mile: BYOD or COPE?

Safety, Scalability, Satisfaction, Savings - What’s Your Priority?

Mobile scanning software on smartphones is bringing new value to the last mile. To truly maximize the benefits, identify the best-fit deployment strategy for your business. Let us introduce two popular options:

BYOD Scanner: Where Cost, Speed and Scalability are Key

With BYOD employees use their personal smartphones for work.

With a scanning-enabled app they can complete last mile tasks, like proof of delivery, on their device.

For the enterprise, it’s more cost effective. No need to provision or maintain hardware. It’s also quicker to onboard workers for seasonal or unplanned peaks – no need to ship a device, minimal training required.

However, you need to ensure their devices are up to the job. Usage and security policies are a must.
