LONDON, UK and ATLANTA, GEORGIA, November 15, 2022 -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq: DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that GSLS, a provider of cash management solutions to retail, hospitality, financial services and public sector organisations, is maximsing its fleet efficiency with Descartes’ cloud-based route planning and optimisation and mobile proof of delivery (POD) solutions. Descartes is helping GSLS pursue its growth strategy by achieving a fully digital chain of custody for cash management while driving cost savings, improving fleet efficiency and delivering customer service excellence.
“Providing exemplary cash management solutions for our clients requires levels of accuracy, efficiency, traceability and security that are second to none. We recognised that growing our market-leading position required a data-driven approach to process improvements, underpinned by technological innovation,” said Fiacra Nagle, Chief Executive, GSLS. “Descartes’ route optimisation and mobile proof of delivery solutions, integrated with our vault management and cash processing solutions, have given us that end-to-end, digital chain of custody while also increasing the efficiency of our operations.”
Part of Descartes’ route planning and execution, mobile and telematics suite, Descartes’ route planning and optimisation solution helps brands, retailers and logistics providers achieve more agile, efficient and sustainable routing, improving fleet resource management by generating additional delivery capacity and reducing costs. Descartes’ execution helps drivers perform their daily routes, keeps managers aware of the progress and provides estimated-time-of-arrival (ETA) to notify customers of their deliveries. Descartes’ mobile application helps drivers execute the route, with POD supporting customer service excellence and order accuracy through real-time mobile communication. For GSLS, Descartes has improved the efficiency and usage of its fleet of over 80 secure armoured vehicles while reducing overall fleet mileage. Sustainability improvements are also supported by removing paper from the supply chain.
“As the market-leader in secure cash logistics in Ireland, GSLS prides itself on customer service excellence and faultless cash management execution,” said Pól Sweeney, EMENAR VP Fleet Sales at Descartes. “We’re delighted to help GSLS enhance these services by facilitating a fully digital chain of custody that supports accuracy, auditability and security of operations; offers tangible efficiency savings; and provides a platform for future growth.”
