Over 90% of the aggregate hauling companies are running their operations with pencil and paper. Some of the more advanced companies may be using spreadsheets to track their jobs. Only a small percentage of companies are using integrated software to optimize all their hauling business processes.
Ask about the case study of a large fleet that gained a 28% improvement in revenue per mile and a 26% improvement in revenue per hour when they started using Dump Truck Dispatcher
Dump Truck Dispatcher handles all of the processes in a way that reduces the need to pass pieces of paper between people and eliminates the need for redundant data entry.
Whether you want to reduce paper for your sanity or to go green, this is one way to do so.
Following are some of the processes that Dump Truck Dispatcher handles
The data from each step in the process flows to the next without having to enter the same data multiple times. Add the data once and it is used anywhere it is needed.
Think of all the communications involved in each of the above documents. Each of these pieces of paper also has a risk of being lost or getting stuck on someone's desk. How much time is spent searching for these documents? The majority of the time spent searching for paperwork and to do the added communications is wasted time.
Good dispatching software should be integrated with quoting, order management, and other office functionality to reduce the need to verbally communicate and to search for those lost quotes, orders, and tickets. As each person does their job, the information will be available in the system for others to see. Gone are the days of searching through the papers on someone else's desk because they are on vacation and you need that order.
Having the right dump truck software can streamline your workflow, and reduce the non-value-added work being done.
