INTRODUCTION of Odoo Delivery Boy App
The Odoo Mobile App is very helpful for your customers to place orders conveniently. But isn’t it great that your delivery boy can navigate to the delivery address through the map after accepting the delivery for an order?
It will result in speedy deliveries and will help even those who are not much aware of the route.
Odoo Delivery Boy App allows the Odoo admin to manage his/her delivery boy network in the Odoo. The admin can create delivery boy’s records and assign orders to them in the Odoo. A delivery boy can install the app and view the assigned order. He/she can accept or reject the order.
Once the delivery boy delivers the accepted order, he/she can mark the order as delivered in the mobile app. The Odoo admin can check the status of the order as accepted, rejected, delivered, etc. in the Odoo.
Moreover, the app follows the latest technology of Flutter wherein developers can use Dart language to build mobile apps.
