EVANSVILLE, Ind. (April 16, 2012) — Atlas Van Lines, one of the nation's leading moving companies, today announces the launch of a moving industry-focused inventory app. Created to ease the moving process for Atlas customers, AtlasNet Inventory is available to Atlas Professional Van Operators (PVOs), or drivers, to provide them with a modern inventory process to better suit the needs of those who are about to embark on a move.
Instead of the traditionally time-consuming inventory method, the app enables the PVO to quickly scan the contents of the move and note their condition. Using the mobile app, items may be photographed, and a legible, descriptive inventory can be emailed or printed for the customer on the spot. In lieu of multiple pages that require signatures, the customer only needs to sign one page to authorize the final inventory report. Most importantly, the inventory is uploaded to Atlas systems and accessed at destination to securely identify items as they are unloaded.
In addition to the time savings benefits, Atlas' app offers peace of mind and additional security. In the event that an item is inadvertently removed from the customer-signed inventory report during the transportation process, the app will catch this change. The customer will be immediately informed and provided with an updated inventory report for review and signature.
"With this inventory app, we can fulfill our overarching goal of transporting customers' possessions safely and efficiently from origin to destination," said Mike Neeley, vice president and CIO of Atlas World Group. "This app allows flexibility for the customer and can quickly eliminate the headache that comes with missing items. With the app's numerous benefits for residential and corporate customers, we're excited that opening the door to new technology can merge speed and efficiency with Atlas' longstanding dedication to top-tier customer service."
