BluJay Solutions, provider of supply chain software and services powered by the Global Trade Network (GTN), has unveiled its MobileSTAR mobility platform. MobileSTAR is a flexible, easy-to-deploy platform that manages the last-mile delivery experience for shippers and carriers of all types.
It provides real-time connection and driver optimisation capabilities through any mobile device to increase customer satisfaction, while reducing operational costs.
A proven standalone solution previously offered as Delivery Connect by Blackbay, which BluJay acquired, MobileSTAR is now fully integrated into BluJay’s Transportation Management for shippers workflow to deliver automated, real-time track and trace, and last-mile routing, enabling customers to share shipment and driver information with partners up and down the supply chain.
“With MobileSTAR, we offer a next-generation, last-mile mobility solution that is fully integrated with our Global Trade Network and product portfolio,” said Doug Surrett, BluJay Solutions’ chief product strategist. “Our Transportation Management customers now have the ability to connect in real-time, delivering improved customer satisfaction and reduced costs.”
MobileSTAR is a configurable end-to-end application that connects the shipper, operations, management, drivers, and customers with real-time data and automated workflows. For shippers, MobileSTAR can replace manual, labour-intensive tracking processes, without costly integration to telematics providers. Drivers, both private fleet and common carriers, can download the BluJay MobileSTAR application on iOS or Android devices and be immediately connected to the network. The application also provides the benefit of street-level route optimisation.
As a stand-alone solution hosted on-premise or in the cloud, MobileSTAR offers seamless integration with existing enterprise systems, as well as pre-configured applications and easy to modify applications for specific needs.
MobileSTAR delivers key functionality including:
- Real-time connectivity to inbound and outbound shipments
- Workflow integration
- Electronic manifest generation
- Point-to-point and street-level routing and optimisation
- Proactive customer shipment alerts
- Proof of delivery and pick-up with signatures and picture
- GPS tracking and geofences
- Ad-hoc pick-up and delivery management
- In-depot / in-warehouse management
- Business intelligence and reporting
Additionally, MobileSTAR is powered by BluJay’s logistics application framework, which enables organisations to create their own application configuration from a library of functionality, including screens, process flow, and logic capability.
