3 Powerful Dispatching Strategies That Will Make Your Business More Successful

Get Out Of Your Rut

Does it feel like, no matter what you do, you just can’t manage to improve your profit margin? It’s time for something new. Route optimization software is the shot in the arm your business needs. It allows you to save time, save gas, and make more money. 

Powerful Dispatching Strategies that Help You Reach Your Business Goals

Strategy #1: Divide Your Service Area Into Different Territories. Sending your drivers back and forth across your entire service area is a waste of time and gas. Instead, you should break your service area up into different territories and assign a driver to each territory, so that every driver’s set of stops is closer together.

That’s exactly what territory mapping allows you to do. When route planning software comes with a territory mapping feature, you can make your drivers more efficient.

Strategy #2: Track Your Drivers. Giving your drivers optimized routes is good, but how do you know your drivers are actually following those routes?

GPS tracking is how. It’ll show you where your drivers are and how fast they’re going in real-time. Whenever you want, you can check in on a driver and make sure they’re doing what you want them to do. 

Strategy #3: Make More Informed Business Decisions. GPS tracking also collects information that you can use to make more informed business decisions. For example, after reviewing your distance traveled and fuel usage metrics, you’ll know if your gas saving techniques are working or not.

There’s No Better Advertisement Than A Good Reputation

Route optimization software helps your drivers show up on time, every time. That’ll keep your customers happy! Happy customers will naturally recommend your service to their friends and family. This is a much more effective (and more affordable) way to attract new customers than blatant print, radio, and television advertising.
