What is a Delivery Management System?

Our DMS can be used in  various facilities

Zone Manager is an award-winning Delivery Management Software

A Delivery Management System (DMS) is a software which helps site managers and facility managers book, track and organise deliveries arriving onsite. A DMS supports operational efficiency, site security and cuts staffing costs, enabling a smooth delivery process.

    We offer DMS solutions for a wide range of sectors, including Construction, Commercial Properties, Events, Retail Outlets, Facilities Management and Warehousing.

      Working with us means you not only get the DMS, but also logistics consultancy and technical support, training for your team and a full system configuration based on your site or project needs.

      Streamlined Deliveries for Construction Sites

      Delivery Management in Construction is not just a matter of having a delivery booking tool, it’s about taking control of what delivery is booked and when; what gate a specific delivery arrives at; who is the assigned driver; what is their vehicle type and range of emissions, etc. All these important bits of information are safely stored and associated with the right delivery within the system. The dynamic delivery schedule informs site managers at all times, without the need to manage spreadsheets and make countless phone calls.

      Here are a few benefits of implementing a Delivery Management System on your Construction site:

      • Minimal Site Congestion
      • Enhanced Security onsite
      • Delivery and Logistics Efficiency (e.g. ensuring that only the required materials are being delivered at the right time)
      • Create and export project reports, which our DMS provides as standard
      • Track and monitor compliance (e.g. CO2 emission calculations)

      Maximised efficiency in Facility Management with Delivery Management solutions

      Simplify delivery management for city center sites and facilities with Zone Manager. In busy urban environments, dealing with logistical challenges can not only become a nuisance and incur costs, but also become a safety risk to staff and pedestrians. 
      Overcome challenges such as – 
      • restricted access
      • limited road usage
      • Clean Air Zone (CAZ) requirements

      Empower your suppliers to independently schedule deliveries at convenient times. This eliminates the need for costly internal booking processes. With real-time visibility of delivery schedules, traffic marshals and gate men can manage upcoming deliveries. They can also accept or reject vehicles and record mileage for CO2 reporting with ease. Our user-friendly system ensures a comprehensive audit trail, capturing both planned and unplanned deliveries while reducing admin burdens

      Manage Event Security and complex logistics with a Management Delivery System

      A management delivery system is a solution that effectively organizes and coordinates the movement of resources, including goods, materials, and people, during an event. This system guarantees timely delivery of essential supplies to designated areas while ensuring security and reducing interruptions.

      Overcome challenges like –

      • Enforcing strict security requirements
      • Single gate access or other access limitations causing congestion
      • Restricted loading bays causing confusion and delays
      • Miscommunication among organisers, suppliers and other staff
      • Multiple events happening in the same venue

      Zone Manager offers event management delivery solutions by leveraging our existing powerful capabilities, and tailoring them into new solutions that meet your specific event requirements. Streamline event logistics, enhance security, and run a seamless event using MDS.

      • Admin Viewer – read-only access to everything which is typically given to system overseers.
      • Supervisor – day-to-day tasks such as managing bookings and setting up logins but can’t make configuration changes.
      • Gate Operator – booking deliveries in and out of site
      • Contractor – make and manage their own bookings. These are of two types; those that can only request delivery slots (Requestor) and those that can make confirmed bookings (Booker)

      Schedules are shown both on an interactive diary and on booking lists.
