AirClic(R) delivers real-time tracking for priority dispatch

Messenger courier company uses standard mobile phones equipped with AirClic solutions to meet key customer demands

NEWTOWN, Pa., Oct. 17, 2005 -- AirClic(R), a leading provider of mobile process automation and optimization solutions, announced today that Priority Dispatch, the Midwest's oldest and largest messenger courier company, has deployed AirClic MP(TM) to provide customers with up-to-the-minute information on the status of deliveries.

Founded in 1973, this family-owned business pioneered the concept of same-day package delivery service with just three vehicles and three independent contractors. Over 30 years later, Priority Dispatch is now a $30 million company and one of the leading providers of same-day delivery and logistics services in Ohio and its contiguous states. Through a network of delivery centers and independent contractors, Priority Dispatch can pick up, store, deliver and/or distribute any shipment -- from a single package to a truckload -- door-to-door.

"One of our largest customers relies on us to move documents and packages through its main central hub in Columbus, Ohio, to 10 to 15 branch offices every day. "This is a very time-sensitive client. We have only a five-minute window to deliver each package or we're considered late. To provide the client, and ourselves, with real-time verification and reporting, we turned to AirClic," said Eric Chesson, logistics specialist for Priority Dispatch. "We looked at some other vendors, but realized the pricing and service from AirClic was superior. We've been satisfied from day one."

Orders are received by the central call center in Cincinnati and transmitted to the appropriate delivery center location where a dispatcher contacts a driver and relays the order. Equipped with AirClic MP-enabled mobile phones, Priority drivers scan barcodes to record every step in the delivery process. This information is transmitted, via a secure wireless network, back to a central server that instantly makes the data available. Using AirClic software, Priority Dispatch can review, query and generate reports to provide customers with up-to-the-minute updates on the status of their deliveries.

"Priority Dispatch has excelled in a very competitive market. Its commitment to customer service and its willingness to embrace new technology has served the company well over the last three decades," said Tim Bradley, chief executive officer at AirClic. "We're delighted Priority Dispatch has selected AirClic MP. Being able to guarantee a level of service, as Priority is doing, is a key to remaining competitive today. AirClic automates data capture for specific events and delivers immediate visibility of critical operations, giving our customers the data they need to react quickly to changing market conditions and customer demands."
