Android devices to power the logistics revolution in India
New technologies are the need of the hour. In order to grow businesses and revolutionise them it is pertinent that cutting-edge technologies are adopted.
Android is the path to mobile modernization in the Indian logistics sector. Handheld barcode scanners, mobile point-of-sale (mPoS), and in-vehicle devices are all built on a common core, Android. However, simply having these mobile devices isn’t enough to help logistics firms in India solve for efficiency and cost control.
Approximately 14 per cent of India’s gross domestic product (GDP) is spent on logistics, compared to just 8 per cent in the US and western Europe. Analysts connect this gap to inefficiencies, a lack of visibility, and poor integration between logistics technologies. Mobility is now synonymous with logistics, and modernization is the key to compete on customer experience. Logistics technology is now a competitive differentiator and not just a cost center, said NishithRastogi, CEO of Locus, in an interview.
Consumer expectations for visibility and communications with logistics providers are higher than ever. Organizations at the forefront of India’s logistics revolution are using integrated Android and cloud to create a better customer experience. Logistics firms who streamline and scale mobile modernization can win customer loyalty.
