Accuracy and precision are two important factors which must be fulfilled in distribution of goods, so the business proses lifecycle of an enterprise or company would run properly. However, at the time of the distribution process performed, a problem could occur. A complicated ordering flow can be one of the problem as happened in the distribution of medicine to pharmacies or hospitals. Medicine can be ordered when distributors assign some of its salesman for visiting pharmacies or hospitals and offer medicine to be sold. Pharmacies who will order must create a letter and handed it to the salesman. All orders from some pharmacies or hospitals will be entered into the order book manually by the salesman. Afterwards, order book returned to distributor and after going through several process again, the order will be sent to the pharmacy or hospital. That issue is the topic of this research, which at the time of delivery of order, courier could be negligent. Therefore, courier needs to be monitored to determine whether the order has been shipped or not. The purpose of this research is to design and build a courier monitoring system. Application is an android based application using GPS Location to trace courier location, and Android Cloud to Device Messaging for push notification feature. There are three modules for users of this application. Application in part one will be used by the medicine distributor company. The second one are used by the salesman to make an order while at the customer premises. The last part are used by the courier for order information and customer location. With this courier monitoring system, pharmacies or hospitals could order medicine quickly and in the right amount. This application can also help distributors in order to monitor location of the courier. So that the business process of both parts would run properly.
