UPS Mobile App Aids Earthquake Relief
The Salvation Army needed help distributing relief supplies after Haiti's devastating earthquake last year. UPS adapted UPS Trackpad, a handheld mobile device originally designed for campus environments. Using just two handheld scanners and a laptop, the Salvation Army was able to streamline supply distribution at a makeshift camp of more than 4,000 refugees. Families presented a laminated bar code identifying the number of people and the supplies needed. Even after the camp was dissolved, the Salvation Army continued using Trackpad to help with the rebuilding effort.
