MARLOW, England, January 12 /PRNewswire/ -- NetDespatch, the web-technology innovator for the express transport sector, has reported a 100 per cent increase in business over the last year. This increase relates to jobs being processed using NetDespatch web services, with data for millions of parcels and packets booked, tracked and delivered being processed through the system each month. The Marlow-based company has forged ahead with its Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, attracting new customers both in the UK and internationally, including Home Delivery Network (HDN), Collect+, New Zealand Post and Nordic Parcels.

NetDespatch specialises in 'on-demand' software that simplifies a myriad of express parcel and packet collection and delivery operations. NetDespatch Velocity has set the standard world-wide for online booking, tracking and systems integration, simplifying the whole process of quotation, booking, creating labels and manifests, shipment tracking and management information. NetDespatch solutions require no up-front investment with the fully-managed and hosted services accessed via any Internet-linked PC or PDA.

2009 has been a very successful year for NetDespatch. Thanks to the hard work of our people and a high customer service ethic, our customer base has increased, our revenues have grown substantially and we are set for a great year ahead of us. In the light of the economic climate we could not have asked for a better end-of-year result. The company is poised for continuing success in 2010, says Becky Clark, CEO, NetDespatch.

NetDespatch Velocity has become the preferred web booking solution for HDN, the UK's largest dedicated home delivery network, as well as powering the entire web services processing platform for Collect+ - a new parcel returns and collections service available through PayPoint stores nationwide. NetDespatch has also developed an International shipping system with New Zealand Post that completely automates document production for all postal services, saving New Zealand Post customers hours of paperwork.

The latest addition to the NetDespatch portfolio is an advanced mobile Internet application called Agility. Agility allows users to scan parcels throughout the delivery cycle, in the depot, in the hub, onto a delivery vehicle, as well as capturing signatures and other information at point of delivery. NetDespatch also recently won a Postal Technology International award for SecureScan, the secure Proof of Delivery (POD) solution which uses a combination of cryptography and wireless communications to give fully authenticated POD, without the need for a signature.
