POD allows fine control of how work is assigned. With POD the supervisor controls how tickets are assigned to the pickers by setting the order in which routes are picked, the number of tickets to print for each worker, and the number of pickers working on a given truck. From the picker's perspective he simply swipes and works on whatever is next. The supervisor can monitor completed work, current assignments, and pick rates making adjustments as needed. He can also view individual worker status at any time.
