Making Sure Your Dispatching Isn’t A Joke

Dispatching is difficult. There’s more to planning routes than just figuring out which roads your drivers need to take to get to your customers. You also need to account for traffic, weather, construction, and other factors. And even if you give your drivers perfect routes, how do you know they are actually following those routes?

Route4Me is how. Our software will design perfect routes for you, and it helps you keep track of your drivers, too.

Planning a route with Route4Me is easy as pie. First you enter your data. Second you check out any addresses that have been flagged for review—and that is it! Once you have entered your addresses and corrected any mistakes that were flagged for review, it only takes 30 seconds or less for Route4Me to produce a 100% accurate and optimized route for you.

Remember, communication is key to successful dispatching. Dispatching is dynamic. Regardless of how good the initial route is, there might be some change you need to make at the last minute. What if a customer calls in and wants you to make a delivery to a different address?

Route4Me’s chat feature makes it easy to communicate with your drivers after they have left the office.

See what your drivers are doing in real time. You can do more than just chat with your drivers on Route4Me. Our GPS tracking feature will show you where your drivers are and how fast they are going at any given time.

Route4Me is a dispatcher’s dream. Most workers tend to slack off a bit when they are unsupervised, and drivers are almost always unsupervised. With GPS tracking, you can make sure everyone is sticking to their routes and staying on schedule.

Overall, Route4Me’s route planning and GPS tracking capabilities will allow you to save gas, save time, and make more money.
