Automated Live Dispatching is now available!
We are excited to announce that Automated Live Dispatching is now available!
Once some initial setup is done, the Dispatching screen will use several factors to intelligently and automatically route upcoming trips to drivers! Setup simply includes defining time and location preferences, and priority settings. You can select different time frames based on Zones, and you can set priority by Account Class, Trip Purpose, and on Trips themselves.
As trip pickup times enter the selected time frame, RoutingBox will begin to identify routes that will be available at that time, calculate their distance, available vehicle space, and any upcoming stops if your company multi-loads. Once the best route has been identified, the trip will automatically be assigned to the driver - without a dispatcher at the computer!
Other settings allow you to choose the trips and areas you'd like covered by Automated Live Dispatching, and set restrictions on maximum distance, and how late a trip is allowed to be.
This new feature is only available on RoutingBox Premium and RoutingBox Ultimate. Click below or call 716.202.9121 for an account review with a Product Support Representative to see if new features are right for your business!
