Our Dashboard gives real time performance KPI information at your
fingertips without having to run scheduled reports. It can be displayed
on any device ranging from tablets to phones, even a large TV in the
traffic office. The Dashboard can display real time ETA information for
your jobs and notify you if a delivery is going to be late or on time. The
system also provides the ability to generate a range of KPI reports.
With our highly flexible entry screens powered by a web based back
office system we can cater for almost any scenario even if your
business has more than one entry requirement and multiple users
entering into the system. Should you already have a back office
system then with the help of our tech support team we can setup an
automatic API import process for CSV or Excel Spreadsheets.
Once jobs are entered into the system they are then either
automatically sent out to drivers or waiting allocation using our
web based route planning tool. To further enhance efficiency via the
click of a button we can automatically allocate jobs onto vehicles
and in the most logical order.
ROUTE PLANNING & OPTIMISATION
Our Web based Planning and Optimisation tool makes easy work of
your existing manual process. Using real time job information you are
able to drag and drop the jobs onto the relevant vehicles. The system
has built in checks to make sure you are not overloading the vehicle.
Once a manifest has been created it is then sent out to the drivers or
engineers remotely in the field. To further enhance the efficiency via
a click of a button we can automatically allocate jobs onto vehicles in
the most efficient order and display the route on a map.
Our application is available to download from the Google Play Store
free of charge meaning it can be used by almost any device from
