PMP which delivers much of NZ’s unaddressed mail and community newspapers is looking at using GPS to be able to check deliveries are actually made.
As a previous user of their services, I think that would be remarkably helpful. Almost every time one arranged for delivery of some brochure into an area, and you would get significant numbers of people complaining they never got one. And the delivery agent often couldn’t reassure you about how many did get delivered.
So long as PMP put protocols around access to the tracking data, such as only to look at it if they received complaints about non delivery, then it seems a good way to verify if their staff and contractors did actually deliver the material they were paid to do so.Tags: New Zealand
