Here are 3 benefits that can be achieved by implementing ShipTrack:
Through the rush of things now a days, there’s no room for any wasted time. Things must be done quickly but without jeopardizing the quality of your service, which is where ShipTrack comes in. One significant benefit of integrating this courier management system is its ability to increase productivity, which has a positive impact on your profit margin down the line. There are several ways ShipTrack can help your company become more productive and here are just a few:
- Automated dispatch
- Phone/mail integration for drivers
- Route load balancing
- Turn by turn directions
- On the go route adjustments
Enhanced Route Optimization
ShipTrack’s route optimization feature is a fundamental part of an efficient courier management system. Route optimization is also a key contributor to having quicker, more accurate deliveries while also reducing fuel costs, saving time and ensuring both drivers and customers are satisfied once a package is delivered.
Basically, through analytics and algorithms, route optimization finds the best route possible for a driver based on traffic, the drivers’ distance and which driver is closest to the shipment’s final destination. This not only is the most efficient method to ensure expectations and deadlines are met, but it also allows fleet managers to assign routes automatically, as opposed to doing everything manually; which is much more time consuming.
The last benefit of route optimization is being able to ensure driver safety. A main issue for most drivers is that they are working ridiculous hours and often getting tired on the road (which can lead to some dangerous consequences). With route optimization, drivers can avoid working these absurd hours, eliminating the chance of them falling asleep on the road. Also, if a driver is lost or in danger, knowing where the driver is at all time allows you to be aware of any unusual routes or behaviors.
Full time Visibility
As a courier management system user, you want to make sure you are getting full time visibility. The reason being, you want to eliminate any room for error and by having visibility you can guarantee everything is running smoothly. Luckily, with ShipTrack, you will not miss a single second of the action. First off you can access the GPS, meaning your drivers location is visible at any point of the delivery process. Secondly, you have access to offline data as well. So, let’s say a driver is in the middle of nowhere, the information on their location will still be stored in ShipTrack, then once the driver gains service again the stored information with be updated right away and you will be able to access it. Lastly, you are able to see real time information, whether you choose to look at the whole map or just one specific driver. This keeps things organized and clear for the management team and also for the drivers on the road.
Jumping on board with a courier management system can be stressful to think about. Will it be hard to integrate? Is it too expensive? Will you regret it? With ShipTrack, you don’t have to worry about any of these doubts because the answer to all those questions is no. ShipTrack is not only easy to use once you do have it, but it is super easy to integrate, affordable, and at the end of the day how can you regret something that makes your job easier?
