Mobile Solutions From SAP Help Feeding America Deliver Food To Families In Need

CHICAGO, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its mission to help the world run better and improve people's lives, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that it has donated mobile technology and professional services to Feeding America, one of the nation's leading hunger relief organizations. This donation will to help speed the flow of food across Feeding America's nationwide network of more than 200 food banks and 61,000 partner agencies.

With SAP® Mobile Platform, truck drivers at food distribution centers across the country can use mobile handheld devices to track their daily inventory versus demand from food pantries and shelters. Armed with this information, drivers can more quickly divvy up food proportionally among their clients and deliver balanced, healthy meals. Improved stock management and route planning frees up resources so Feeding America can direct more energy to helping people in need.

Currently, Feeding America provides food to more than 37 million people through 61,000 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in communities across America. They do this by "rescuing" food from retailers that is surplus, near the expiration date or in damaged packages but still edible. Truck drivers are critical to this operation — every day they collect food and bring it to the partner agencies, making sure food goes from grocery stores to families' dinner tables.

In the past, truck drivers had to manually fill in forms to document every item that they picked up at a retailer or delivered to an agency, which then had to be loaded into the Feeding America system for inventory management. Using mobile technology from SAP, Truck drivers can now capture all items electronically on a mobile device that automatically delivers the information directly into the back-end system. Feeding America and SAP worked together using SAP Mobile Platform and its application development tools to create the custom solution. Deploying SAP Mobile Platform will help the organization eliminate time-consuming paperwork and allow Feeding America to devote more time to helping people.
