Sales Manager of Cylinders Department, Gaspol
This is a very good solution supporting the work of sales department in many different areas. Thanks to the system we have greater control over stocks, gas supplies, execution of orders and the whole distribution process. Our vendors have updated information about prices and inventory levels of our clients. All information is instantly updated and complete data on the size and structure of the sale are available at any time on-line, what provides additional support for financial settlements. We are satisfied with the system, which not only supports our drivers in their daily work, but also helps us implement the project of fast gas cylinders deliveries for customers fromvarious, even the most distant corners of the country.

The system of gas cylinders deliveries at Gaspol is fully automated now. Orders from customers are entered into the program Axapta; converted into commissions and then automatically distributed among the drivers (salesmen) and sent to their mobile terminals. SKK mobile system allows receiving orders and full registration of sale at the level of terminals. Each mobile terminal is equipped with a barcode reader and module of mobile network. Data transmission takes place via the GSM network, what allows communicating from anywhere in Poland. Each vendor has a mobile terminal and a fiscal printer, by means of which he can prepare and print receipts, invoices and documents of issued goods.

The solution is combined with satellite navigation and uses Automapa. It helps the driver to choose the most optimal route to reach the client. All data documenting the execution of orders and sales in real-time stream down back from the terminals to the internal ERP Axapta system, which is used by Gaspol company.

SKK delivered the mobile terminals, printers and licenses of applications for 350 field representatives of Gaspol.
