All the current courier software available on the market are not as brilliant and packed with numerous benefits to justify the investment from courier companies in UK. Seriously, there are some free to download courier software for you to download just to come to conclusion as to say “Well, using a courier software isn’t for my courier business.“. That we believe will be the biggest business mistake you could ever make. Here’s why choosing the right courier software instead of outdated free to download software is the way to go:
What Does a Courier Software Do for Couriers
Some functions of courier software remain the same across the board, whether a courier software is designed for UK or US or EU couriers, although the quality provision may vary across different versions and software providers, basic features remain the same
- Courier software is a goldmine for customers that can now access all data relating to their shipment or online order very easily. If they have queries or complaints, the software enables speedy response through optimised channels.
- Delivery software is a wonder for logistics managers that continually need to calculate costs, overheads and determine what constitutes efficient service delivery for their company. Performance data (partially garnered from the software database and GPS) is invaluable for making informed decisions.
- Drivers of company vehicles get a ton of benefits such as route updates and real-time tracking so it is instantly recognisable if they are working efficiently due to courier software updates.
Route and Evaluate
A key sign of a more unique and effective courier software is the feature of Real-time two-way communication with the Back Office System. This is done in cases where the driver’s route is automatically adjusted for new bookings and order pickups, after cost calculation. When a driver cannot make a certain delivery for whatever the reason, real-time two-way communication with the Back Office System can remedy, change, update next ideal destination to save time and fuel for other deliveries that are still pending to be delivered.
Furthermore, understanding the best routes to take becomes critical dependent on the type of niche you operate in (e.g. multi-service courier, same-day, documents, Artic, or next-day) especially if operating under a strict time frames and deadlines.
Automatic Data Backups Security & Usability
Better and more unique courier software solution is the ability of backups, Delivery Master Courier Software performs automatic nightly backups, so your delivery data is always secure. A great part of a courier software is exporting data to cloud storage automatically.
Let’s face it, Microsoft Windows Operating System is what it is today due to its simplicity of use. Instead of learning MS-DOS commands which are quite complex to say the least, all one needs to do is just press on computer device’s power, login, and voila you are in Windows OS to do everything you want (MS Word, Excel, or just browse the internet).
