Receiving Buddy lets subcontractors and the field know what is en route to the jobsite, and what is actually there. The app works with any vendor, and Material Management Software will help you develop a process that prevents material black holes, ensuring that you get the cash discount because invoices can be paid knowing material is where it should be.

Everyone will know what’s on the truck!
Receiving Buddy was developed by Material Management Software (MMS) after talking with vendors and contractors who wanted a simple, less labor-intensive, more transparent way to track deliveries. Self-perform contractors can save time tracking inventory by streamlining the receipt of hundreds of thousands of parts.
This app allows the field to see an acknowledged order before it arrives. Remote field teams can check off the items from a detailed list, identify issues, and upload a copy of the packing slip with a phone or tablet. An easy-to-search method enables you to keep history and vendor performance statistics.
Knowing the exact status of every item that is supposed to be delivered can help your operation save time and money while eliminating a lot of frustration. The back office can now follow the material along its journey from vendor warehouse, to job site, and through the ERP to payment. If your receiving process is ready for a better way to manage field paperwork, we can help with that.
