The Detroit Lions were having issues with misplaced packages and turned to Notifii for help in their mailroom .
The Detroit Lions are a professional NFL team based in Detroit, Michigan. Ray Sanders, Shipping and Receiving Coordinator at the Detroit Lions mailroom, thought they could be better leaders in the mailroom. The Lions were having issues with misplaced packages. When employees tracked their FedEx packages, they would get notified that their shipments had arrived but the mailroom had yet to process and log them, leading to confusion for Sanders and the whole team. Sanders needed a way to show proof that a package was already on the premises and knew there had to be a simple, cost-effective solution out there. He had been in the logistics industry for over 10 years and was hopeful to find a software that would help simplify his package management process.
Prior to using Notifii, Sanders was spending time sorting through everything without a logging system and there was no way of knowing how many packages would arrive on a given day. On average, it would take about 30-45 minutes per day of sorting alone. Now, the Lions are receiving approximately 548 packages per month and with 500 employees it is important that he stay as organized as possible. Sanders often logs the packages on his own but with Notifii, he now has the peace of mind that if something physically comes to the building, he will have the visual proof in the pictures he takes with the Notifii app, and easy access to search through his package log and find exactly what he’s looking for.
