The latest release of Stream Go has seen a number of updates and enhancements to the Stream software ecosystem.
Updates to trunking
Multi-trunking allows an order to be trunked between multiple depots or warehouses, as goods move through your network.
This change would allow, for example, goods starting in a warehouse in Bristol, then trunking to a central depot in Derby, before trunking to another warehouse in Glasgow.
Missed scans reporting
New information has been added to the Run Items report to help find items that failed to be scanned onto a vehicle. The additional information shown is:
- Which depot is handling the run?
- Which driver and vehicle are on the run?
- Whether or not items were scanned on and off the run
- The timestamps for items scanned on and off the run.
We’ve enhanced the API with some new endpoints and additions:
Import and deletion of planning data
New API endpoint
Order addition on fixed routes
When orders are created through the API, you can allocate them onto a suitable master run.
This works best with fixed routes and set postcodes.
Route number display
You can now import route and carrier information via the API, and view that information in Advanced planning
Add document links to driver notes
You can now make online documents accessible within Stream – both in Order Details and in the Drivers’ App.
This could include a set of assembly instructions, or a map/photos with directions to an awkward-to-reach site.
Match on postcode
You now have the option to autofill runs with orders based on postcode only rather than more of the address information. Allowing easier matching of orders.
Update to processing nearby orders, to enhance removal of master stops or removal of all planned stops
Analytics database enhancements
The Stream Analytics database has been enhanced with more content.
Item consolidations went through a number of major updates in January’s release. That functionality is now being enhanced further.
Initial order details changes
A new Order details function has been released allowing you to view consolidated items sent in through the API. This function is scheduled to be enhanced further.
Depot scanning & Trunk Allocations
Enhancements have been made to Stream’s scanning functionality and trunks to handle consolidated items.
To segregate Masters from standard runs, when selecting a Delivery Method in Order Details the Master runs appear at the bottom of the list and are highlighted with an ‘M‘.
Changes and fixes
There has also been a number of changes, fixes, and enhancements to functionality, including:
- Depots can now be listed alphabetically in Advanced Planning
- You are now able to add more service levels through the Settings feature
- You can enter additional email addresses for a single delivery/collection location
- Improved error logging for driver data
- Better uploading for car transport and logistics orders
- Autoplan default dates update.
