Bear River Announces BearTracks Packages, the Next-Generation Package Tracking System for Large Organizations


Bear River announced BearTracks Packages, a next-generation software product for the internal tracking of packages, accountable interoffice mail, and a variety of corporate assets. The core module of BearTracks Packages, the Receiving & Distribution Module, will be distributed in January 2008. Bear River is demonstrating this new product at RB Publishing’s Parcel Forum in Chicago, Oct 30-31, 2007.

Randall Matamoros, CEO of Bear River, said “We are pleased to announce BearTracks Packages, our next-generation internal tracking product designed and built from the ground up as a modular web application. Today we are announcing the release of the Receiving & Distribution Module, the core of our new product. Bear River has been developing tracking and workflow systems for fifteen years, and we have applied our many years of expertise in developing this new product. We believe that the market will be delighted with the new features and the usability of BearTracks Packages.”

This new product provides the most advanced features of all internal tracking systems on the market.

Receiving highlights include:

1. Dockside scanning and carrier reconciliation
2. Capture of security-related events
3. Choice of data capture mechanisms
- Mobile application
- Web application
- Machine integration
- Carrier import
4. Employee database integration
5. “Deliver To” functionality: alerts, holds, redirection, forwarding, etc.

Distribution highlights include:

1. Automatic route assignments
2. Secure delivery features
3. Web tracking & email notification
4. Configurable workflows with site-by-site variability
5. Cost allocation for internal services
6. Performance management

Mr. Matamoros went on to say “Bear River has been developing web applications and web sites for ten years. In the last couple of years AJAX-based web applications have become the norm – examples include Google Maps and other Google applications. AJAX-based applications behave very much like native desktop applications to users but are far easier to support by IT departments since they really are web applications. The earlier generation of HTML-based web applications is more difficult to use. BearTracks Packages is the first AJAX-based internal tracking system and provides better usability.”

BearTracks Packages can be deployed in multiple ways. It can be run internally (behind the firewall) as an internal information system. Alternatively it can be hosted externally (outside the firewall).

BearTracks Packages is not a replacement for Star Receiver, Bear River’s current package tracking solution. That produce, which has been a market leader for ten years, will continue but will be re-targeted to mid-sized and smaller organizations. BearTracks Packages has been designed from the ground up to provide more modularity and configurability than Star Receiver and to meet the needs of larger enterprises for integration with other information systems such as Oracle, SAP, shipping software, and automated mail sorters.
