Abstract

In delivery sector answering the requests of customers quickly and efficiently became very important for recent years. Thus people who are working in delivery sector began challenging to build well settled synchronization for more complex delivering system. In this synchronization they try to keep customers information, providers (who answering requests) information, divide requests for providers and inform them about their recent jobs, provide fast and efficient delivering system. All of these lead to acquire customer pleasure with firm pleasure. We believe that using mobile device such as PDA with a host PC for building well settled synchronization with providers and host is simple but useful way. The aim of host is arranging received requests and sending them with their information to convenient providers by considering all providers position and their job intensity. So request would be answered as quickly as possible. Also providers can access information about their jobs and the shortest path for reaching these jobs by using their PDA. Our system makes all things simple and easy for people. Providers don’t have to care about how to reach their jobs and workers arrange requests don’t have to consider about convenient providers.
