Advanced Digital Data, Inc. (ADD Systems), the leading supplier of software solutions to the energy distribution industry, announced the launch of the popular Raven software mobile delivery solution on a Panasonic® Toughpad® tablet. Raven, originally launched in 1995, is currently deployed in 6,500 trucks across North America. The new Raven tablet has been redesigned to take advantage of the larger rugged touchscreen display and boasts a new intuitive user experience, which makes deploying Raven even simpler.
ADD Systems has installed the new Raven tablet at a number of client sites over the past few months with positive results. Bruce Bott, President of ADD Systems, is excited about the release and happy with the feedback he is getting. “The new Raven tablet is the result of the close connection we have with our customers. They told us they wanted a rugged tablet option, so we delivered.”
Clients that have already deployed Raven on the Honeywell non-tablet devices can optionally and simultaneously implement the Panasonic Toughpad unit within their fleet. As is the case with every new release of Raven, all of the previous functionality exists, including the highly praised ability for Raven to connect with the ADD Energy E3® Dispatch Monitor to get updated and optimized routes (dynamic routing) throughout the day and to provide a real-time view of trucks, delivery progression and inventory levels for dispatchers, customer service representatives and most importantly, clients.
