Automate the busywork, save time, and reduce dispatcher call volume
Automate the busywork and eliminate constant calls to the dispatcher without removing their control over this important process. The mobile app allows the driver to obtain a signature as proof of delivery as well as take pictures of the material drop that will automatically tie directly to that document. Send notifications to customers via email or text to let them know the truck is on the road, they are the next stop, or after the delivery has been made. GPS map your trucks to inspect a bread-crumb trail of where that truck has been and how long it has spent at any one location. Software includes a load scheduler (dispatch control panel) and you can organize deliveries easily using drag and drop. Receive overweight truck alerts and improve efficiency with printed, barcoded manifest documents for delivery drivers.
Even if you have a great dispatcher, you can still benefit by automating the tasks that require numerous bulletin boards, dry erase pens, cubby-holes, clipboards and paper.
