“We export a lot of our products through the containers. LoadProof is easy to document such loads that are being exported because I can take pictures super fast, upload them to the cloud and the pictures stay there for ever. I can share those pictures with anybody, in case of a claims situation or if there any questions on the condition of the product when it was loaded. I find LoadProof very useful for my business and I would highly recommend for others as well. LoadProof is fast, easy, and very user friendly. Convenient way to track loads, quality issues, and even safety incidents for your business needs. Not only we were up and running in one day, we started seeing value from day one”. – Tim Campbell, Executive General Manager, XPO Logistics



As a General Manager for a 3PL Warehouse, I was responsible for shipping our products to our customer’s customer. Some how, we were told that we were not doing a good job when we shipped the products. So we started using LoadProof, basically we started taking pictures of every single pallet that would leave our facility, we uploaded those pictures to the LoadProof cloud and made it available for our customer to look at, we wanted to prove, that we did our job right. We did this for 3 months, our customer understood that we are doing a great job and they stopped asking any questions on the quality of our shipments. LoadProof not only helped me prove that we did our job right, but also win the trust and confidence of my customer back “. – Don Powell, General Manager, XPO Logistics

SG LoadProof is a patent pending Centralized Enterprise Photo/Video Document System on Cloud for Supply Chain. SG LP is built on the fact that photos & videos are vital docs as important as POs/SOs/Legal Contracts/Fulfillment Orders that reside in ERP/WMS/TMS systems, that serve as compelling, conclusive, unequivocal proof of crucial, critical, vital operations executed in Supply Chain within/across orgs when fulfilling customer orders as well as meeting contractual obligations between orgs as merchandise is transferred between different parties that partake in Supply Chain functions & operations. And these photos/videos data should not be stored in someone’s Smartphone or Email Inbox or in their personal/work Computer, but should be stored in a Centralized Enterprise system, where such data can be pushed into super-fast, stored securely, accessible to all stake holders (CFO/Sales Reps/Customer Support/AR/AP) in an org, as well as facilitates super-fast retrieval/sharing. LP is an Enterprise System of record for Photo/Video docs & is as important as an ERP which is an enterprise system of record for POs, SOs, Legal Contracts between parties etc. that have huge legal ramifications, also as important as a WMS (Warehouse Management System) that hold indispensable shipment & fulfillment data on orders. Like how Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat etc. have evolved into social media platforms/systems that enable individuals to showcase their beauty/pretty clothes/lovely cosmetics/hep coolness etc., LoadProof is an Enterprise system that holds similar photos/videos, but for a different reason, not for show off, but to serve as compelling, conclusive, unequivocal & indisputable system of record and proof that can be presented even in the court of law, when there is a dispute between parties while they execute many facets of the Supply Chain functions & operations.
