Increase Delivery Efficiency With:
Simple, Easy to Use Interface
Supported on iOS & Android
Direct Store Delivery (DSD) Distributors benefit from DEX by getting priority at the backdoor receiving area over other distributors that must check-in manually - which means less "waiting in line" to get checked-in. Retailers respond well to efforts that support streamlining their check-in process, which DEX does by exchanging invoice and pricing data electronically and reconciling differences on the spot. DEX helps the retailer eliminate paper invoices and the subsequent handling of these invoices by multiple parties within their organization.
Modern devices such as iPhone, iPod and Android devices do not readily support serial interfaces. Handheld devices that do support DEX'ing via a serial interface are not cost effective at $2,000 per device!
PFDex utilizes a DEX standard cable ending with a ¼" stereo plug. The receiver's DEX system will have a receptacle for the ¼" plug. DEX'ing with modern devices is now not only possible, but easy.
How Does DEX Work?
The communication between distributors and receivers is done through a serial interface on each system. The distributor's DEX device includes a cable ending with a ¼" stereo plug, and the receiver's system will have a receptacle for the ¼" plug. DEX provides a simple, standard interface for everyone, bridging the gap between legacy serial ports and modern mobile devices.
- Connect the iPhone, iPod, or Android Device to PFDex via WiFi
