New Delhi, Aug 13 (UNI) Airtel Enterprise Services, a business unit of Bharti Airtel Ltd, today said it has been awarded a sales force automation contract by logistic company Elbee Express which will enable Elbee to operate its logistics business in real time.

Currently, field staff from Elbee Express delivers consignments for which the POD (Proof of Delivery) is hand written and the delivery data is entered at its back office and uploaded on to the Elbee Portal on the web.

With the new Airtel solution, Elbee would be able to directly enter the delivery information on the device at the time of delivery and transmit this information over the Airtel countrywide network using GPRS to a central server. From here it will be immediately transferred to the Elbee Portal, thus making it real time information, said the statement.

Similarly, at the time of pick-up, the field-staff will be able to capture the consignment details and transmit this through Airtel's countrywide GPRS network to a central server, from where it will forecast and pre-alert Elbee's branches.

As part of this project, Airtel is setting-up a customised end-to-end sales force automation solution for the pick-up and delivery process of the logistics company.

This makes Bharti Airtel the first service provider in India to offer a customised solution on an end-to-end basis by providing all components of the service including hardware, software, connectivity, hosting and support for a mobile enabled field force automation solution, said a company statement.

This three-year agreement is expected to cater to over 400 users at the onset and is expected to grow nearly five-folds by the end of the agreement period, said the statement.
