Current Dispatching Environment • Handwritten forms and paperwork for dispatchers and drivers • Inefficient communication – in-person, phone, text, emails • Don’t know where your drivers are • Redundant entry during billing – sometimes inaccurate. • Re-active culture – ex. Last minute changes • It works
  3. 3. DSi Transport Manager ® • Streamline dispatching process from quote to invoice Quote Schedule Dispatch Work Invoice Repeat Customer • Data is carried seamlessly from one step to next – eliminate redundant, inaccurate entry • Same data is communicated to all personnel involved – dispatchers, drivers, managers • Keep records of past moves in a centralized place – easy to retrieve by search indicates typical pain points in traditional dispatching

  6. 6. Dispatch and Perform Work • Receive load data wherever they are – Cuts down phone calls – Re-route drivers easily • Drivers are tied into the system to add valuable timestamp data that is otherwise hand-keyed – Out for Pick-up, At Pick-up, Out for Delivery, etc. • Driver tools – HOS compliance, Photo attachments, Fuel logging, Messaging
  7. 7. Billing • Include all incidentals and surcharges • Customize invoice template to include information that customer wants • One-click Invoice – Email or Print • Flexible – Mult. Orders per invoice • Integrated with Accounting System Be Proactive Re-active: Having to hear the customer say “Why is this on my invoice?” and then reacting to it. Pro-active: Telling the customer ahead of time “XYZ happened and we incurred this charge. However, it will show as being credited on your invoice.”
  8. 8. Overcoming weaknesses • Tying the Quoting process in ensures that everyone involved knows what the customer expects • Mobile devices allow schedule changes and last-minute requests to be communicated to drivers quickly • Accurate records of work performed provides an clear picture during billing and settlements • Data is ready to generate invoices so they can be sent out quickly Quote Schedule Dispatch Work Invoice Repeat Customer
  9. 9. Benefits • Save time at every point in the dispatching process • Better communication across the organization • Eliminate hand-written paperwork • Eliminate time spent filing and ‘looking for’ orders • Easily train or cross-train employees • More data = better decisions • Everyone is on the same page – Better communication

  12. 12. Thanks for your attention! Any questions? Things to think about… • In your current dispatching operation, what is the most tedious part of the process? • Where does miscommunication happen the most? • If everyone involved ‘shared a brain’ what would be the biggest benefit?
