Sleep Easy with Granite ePOD...


Issued by: Cradle Technology Services 

[Johannesburg, 20 August 2015]

Cradle Technology Services levels up by adding electronic proof of delivery (ePOD) to its successful Granite Warehouse Management Solution (WMS). ePOD extends the power of Granite WMS's traceability outside the four walls to the point of activity, at the mobile edge.

The ePOD solution is a cloud-based mobile electronic Proof of Delivery solution with integration to SAGE ERP Solutions and Granite WMS. Functionality includes load management, tracking, navigation, sign-on screen, date and time stamping, e-mailed Proof of Delivery to customers, vehicle inspection and a Web portal for comprehensive reporting.

Sheldon Vermaak, one of the Cradle Solution's specialists says: "Electronic proof of delivery can transform your business efficiency reducing customer service costs. Instantly available Proof of Delivery means less paperwork and after-the-fact data capture, shortening the order-to-cash cycle.

Visibility, routing, navigation and delivery management improve speed, accuracy and incident management resulting in happier customers.

"The Granite ePOD system is really simple to deploy and customers report that it is easy to use." says Craig Collins, Cradle's CEO and Project Director.


Cradle has based the costing model on a simple monthly rental per vehicle and the mobile device, a rugged hand held unit running on Windows Mobile, can also be rented as part of the Cradle offering.



New Zebra TC70, Granite WMS... warehousing with a consumer feel


Issued by: Cradle Technology Services 

[Johannesburg, 23 March 2015]

Zebra's new TC70 4.7-inch HD touchscreen computer running Android 4.2.2 (KitKat) and Granite warehouse management software from Cradle Technology Services combines the familiarity of a consumer smartphone in a rugged enterprise-class chassis with the power of the simple-to-use Granite software.

The enterprise-class TC70 is a wireless IP67 handheld computer with a built in bar code scanner, 6ft drop spec, tumble rating, snap-on trigger handle and Zebra's Extensions (Mx), which transform Android from a consumer operating system to an enterprise-class operating system.

Granite is built on top of years of experience and knowledge utilising the very latest Microsoft and Java development technologies. It is designed for bar coding, follows a simple workflow, has tight integration into selected ERP systems, and provides the best functional fit as opposed to masses of sophisticated functionality that you will never use.

Running on the TC70's browser in Android, the Granite user experience becomes extremely rich and very much a familiar consumer experience with features such as slide functionality. This endears the operator to the work tool and software because it feels and works just like their own personal consumer device.


The TC70 and Granite WMS... simple, comfortable warehousing... the employee's dream, the employer's answer!

Cradle Technology Services is a leader in providing bar code and RFID solutions and equipment in southern Africa. Cradle strives to provide its clients with a turnkey solution from design and management of a solution through to supply of software and hardware, consulting and implementation services, and even bar code or RFID labels.

College of Cape Town chooses Facets from Cradle Technology Services for physical asset tracking


Issued by: Cradle Technology Services 

[Johannesburg, 20 March 2015]

The College of Cape Town has selected Facets Physical Asset Management (PAM) Solution and services from Cradle Technology Services and partner, DLK Group, in order to achieve its required asset compliance.

The College of Cape Town selected Facets because of its simplicity and ability to track, trace, identify and locate physical assets, providing the college with a real world picture of the physical assets at its central office and at each of its eight campuses and three residences.

Cradle spent a number of days at each site, tagging each and every physical asset with a bar coded aluminium asset tagcapturing details about the asset, such as category, type, make, model, serial number, status and condition, allocating them to their assigned room numbers using a bar coded location tag.

This has provided the College of Cape Town with a comprehensive database of its more than 13 000 physical assets and its physical locations by campus and room number.


The user-friendly Facets desktop application will be used by the College of Cape Town in future to add new assets to the database (register), scrap old assets, modify condition or status of assets, add notes/events to a particular asset, move the asset from one location to another, conduct regular audits and export detailed Microsoft Excel reports.

Facets PAM Solution is developed, owned and supported by Cradle's passionate development and support team, and the company is proud to add the College of Cape Town to its family of Facets users, which includes the South African Parliament, Groupon, UCT, Financial Services Board, Rotek and the SABC.
