Blackbay, a provider of robust and secure real-time mobile worker solutions, has announced that its Delivery Connect solution has been implemented by the Government Car and Despatch Agency (GCDA) to provide traceability within its Government Mail Division.

The GCDA, an Executive Agency of the Department for Transport, employs around 300 staff and provides two separate services: Government Cars and Government Mail, the Government’s internal mail system.

“Government Mail has a critical role to play in the movement of internal mail between Government departments. Security and traceability are key requirements of our customers, ” said Nigel Bennett, director of Government Mail for the GCDA. “It was imperative that we deployed a solution that would ensure the complete accuracy and stability of our track and trace system.”

“We needed to understand the challenges associated with the collection and delivery of high profile potentially sensitive mail,” said Larry Klimczyk, managing director of Blackbay. “Delivery Connect, running on Motorola MC70 rugged handheld computers, provides key benefits, including electronic signature capture and event time stamping at every point of the delivery process.
