Spirit Data Capture

Meeting the needs of transport and logistics companies

Time, accuracy and reliability are all vital factors of an effective transport and logistics operation. We provide everything you need to streamline your operations. This includes both bespoke and off-the-shelf software; a wide selection of mobile hardware; a wireless infrastructure; and managed services.

With Spirit’s mobile enterprise solutions, transport and logistics companies can save time by streamlining routes and deliveries; save trouble by tracking shipments and proof of delivery; and save money by managing drivers and their time more effectively.


We offer a selection of powerful software apps, based on our flagship platform, Mobile Connect™. Our electronic proof of delivery (ePoD) app can prove very useful for tracking and tracing orders from the warehouse right through to the point of delivery. Our Field Service app ensures that the right tasks are carried out in the right order or that the right product gets to the right place on time.

Our Inspections app is ideal for increasing the speed and accuracy of your system for recording quality assurance inspections, by automating many processes and ensuring that all of your inspectors are using the same system.

Another notable software app is SOTI’s MobiControl, the UK’s leading EMM platform. This will enable you to control and manage all of your mobile devices remotely, so that you can optimise their effectiveness and the return on your investment.

The right hardware

We can source a wide variety of rugged handheld solutions from leading manufacturers such as Zebra, Getac, Honeywell, Xplore, M3 and Datalogic. We can supply devices such as mobile computers, linear imagers, barcode scanners, personal digital assistants (PDAs), tablets, smartphones and mobile printers. Because these devices are rugged, they are ideal for the demanding environments often encountered by transport and logistics companies.

With our voice technology offerings, we can also boost the efficiency of your inspection and maintenance activities by providing a hands-free environment, which will enable your operators to automatically record their observations as they look around.

The right infrastructure

We have a wide range of wireless infrastructure services and can offer you expert advice on deployment, management and support.

Our services include a detailed radio frequency (RF) site survey, and our team of qualified engineers will carry out the installation. We can also carry out health checks that will pre-empt any degradation in the performance of your wireless Local Area Network (WLAN).

Finally, we provide various options for managing, maintaining and supporting your wireless infrastructure.
