    Has anyone worked with AirClic?


    by jdclyde ·

    Greetings friend, family and fans!

    As many of you know, I have been working part time for a courier business since getting laid off a year and a half ago.

    We are bidding for a new customer, but they require that any couriers use AirClic for their dispatching and tracking.

    I am expecting a call from their sales/support team at any time now, but was hoping someone out there might have some experience with them (good or bad) that they could share.

    How does it perform for dispatching?

    How dependable/accurate is the GPS tracking?

    What phones/handheld devices have you used, and did they work out or not?

    How much did the phones/handhelds cost? (about)

    Will need to do barcode scanning as well.

    Is this a hosted solution or do you run your own server?

    We are currently using CXT as a solution, but have been unimpressed with their GPS tracking/support.

    Thanks all for your feedback. Will post more after I get a chance to talk to them. Back to reading their site to get as much background info as I can.

      I worked for a big courier company 10 years ago, but they would never had changed technologies for one client. Instead they would have asked for requirements like tracking, notification etc., and they provided a service guarentee that met those requirements.

      They were big enough to work with companies like Symbol to create their own solution. Having said that, if you can get an off the shelf system, it would probably be cheaper and faster to implement.

        I talked to AirClic and they don’t/can’t replace our existing system, they just make it so we can get this one customer that REQUIRES you use the service.

        Odds are someone at the company is getting PAID to make the service a required service.
