  • Decision tree forms, which allow for simplified driver interaction by only asking drivers questions relative to the situation they are in and based upon prior questions.
  • Signature capture and bar code capabilities through handheld devices that allow for proof of delivery and pickup, inventory management and more.

Dispatch Integration

Streamline workflow.

Drive back office and driver efficiency up and operations costs down.

  • Messaging promotes easier communication and shorter accounting cycle – drivers can skip the paperwork and key billing information into a custom form in the mobile communications device and send it to the back office before leaving their stop.
  • Geofencing automates & simplifies in-cab data entry – collect and report information and exception notifications about vehicle status and location, associating latitude and longitude with each stop throughout the route.
  • Engine and driver performance data integrated with a scorecard or dashboard system drives predictive analysis – managers can more easily determine a driver’s current and future driving behavior and identify opportunities for increasing ROI by analyzing MPG.
