Are you still using a paper based system to track orders and create quotes for customers? There is an easier and more productive way! Setting up a new project or getting your bid in for a contract is fast and easy with Dump Truck Dispatcher, a cloud based software program for dump truck businesses.
Projects allow you to create numerous quotes associated with the same project without having to enter the same data for each quote you are sending to the various vendors. You can readily track the quotes associated with the project.
Once data is entered into a quote, it can carry through to the orders with minimal data entry. This streamlines the process, reduces data entry, and results in fewer errors in pricing.
You have the ability to sort and search for projects by start date, customer name, and status.
Orders can be created with or without a quote. For those one time orders of loose loads, there is no need to have a quote. The order can be created based on standard pricing or the pricing can be adjusted by the dispatcher.
If you start the order with a quote, the data from the quote is automatically populated into the order when you specify the quote being used.
All your suppliers, products, and services information is at your fingertips. The tickets feature helps keep you organized so you can easily keep track of all load tickets. You will save time from switching between applications and spreadsheets since your information is all in one place.
All of your orders, tickets,and quotes can be easily printed or emailed any time you need them.
The color coded dispatch schedule makes it easy to see at a glance the orders planned for the day, which trucks are available, and how many you will need. When the schedule is ready, send it out to your drivers via SMS text or email. You will save valuable time rather than calling each driver individually.
Dump truck dispatcher also has a multi-office capability so you can share trucks between offices. The mapping tool will show where all the job locations are so you can easily view where your fleet is going to be. This will help maximize efficiency when customers call in to add last minute orders.
When plans change, you can easily move orders to a different day by simply choosing a menu item and selecting the new order delivery date. You also have the ability to duplicate reoccurring orders. These shortcuts increase productivity and save on labor costs. Trucking dispatch software like Dump Truck Dispatcher is designed for any size fleet. Whether you have one office or many, we can meet all your dispatching needs in one easy to use software program.
Keep your fleet compliant and in good working condition by creating a good preventive maintenance schedule. This module allows users to easily see which trucks are due for service, and which ones that will be due shortly. This feature also has the capability to store records and set alerts for certifications and maintenance appointments.
Having a tool that keeps track of costs associated with services and repairs will allow you to see which trucks are costing the most to run.
Gone are the days of putting stickers on the windshield, or keeping track in a book.
The dashboard also shows what trucks are out of service so the dispatcher can plan for that. Regular visibility into, and tracking of out of commission trucks also keeps the focus on this metric. This leads to an increased utilization of your fleet.
