How many BOLs get lost? How many unreasonable claims do you get? In the digital age, it's more important than ever to protect yourself. Geotagged files are one way we combat this.
Geotagging is the process of adding geographic information to various media in the form of metadata. The data consists of coordinates like latitude and longitude. This data helps confirm the exact location of which the information/media was done.
When using the ePOD to pickup or deliver an order, all pictures and documents are immediately geotagged and uploaded to the dashboard after completing an inspection.
The drivers coordinates are attached to the files, as well as the date that the documents were generated. Coordinates and dates of photos taken are stored in the metadata on the photos themselves.
What if I have no internet connection when I finish the inspection?
If there is no internet, the GPS coordinates are still recorded through your smartphones GPS module. GPS is not dependent on having an active internet connection.
