Getting Ready for Set Up
Prior to being able to use Dump Truck Dispatcher in day-to-day operations, there are some things that need to be set up. Although it may be tempting to jump right in and add and schedule an order, there is some setup that needs to be done. While some of the information we are going to set up can be entered on the fly as you add orders, it will be a lot easier if you do this in advance. Otherwise, the dispatcher will be entering the info as he is trying to deal with 5 other urgent issues at the same time.
This manual will take you through the process of logging in and entering this data. If you have a system that can export some of this information, speak with someone at Dump Truck Dispatcher about importing the data.
The below instructions assume you are manually entering the data.
Depending on which features you have, you may not see some of these options. If you think you should have access to some functionality that you don’t, let us know.
Prior to our initial training session, we set up most of the settings based on what we heard you say you want. Be careful about changing settings if you don't know what they do.
