Okay, the world has changed with the stroke of a virus outbreak world-wide. Our Queen’s speech has assured us that we will all as Brits come stronger on the other side. Surely, our heartfelt wishes go to thousands of citizens sadly affected within United Kingdom (and also the world).
We all thank our health care workers, and, we perhaps now realize even more how dependent and as well as thankful we are to all of them.
Ask yourself this “what do I see around on once busy London streets” not much due to curfews imposed, however, we all have now realized the importance of couriers and courier companies who provide just as essential services delivering items safely.
Surely, just as our queen and health officials informed us “patience and time is needed and we will all get to normality”. But why not improve your courier services with the help of a courier software? You can with Delivery Master Courier Software
The UK courier industry is no exception to the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic but there are many ways in which courier software has helped in deliveries and profits despite most non-essential businesses shutting down.
Couriers are Always Essential Let’s Get That Out of the Way
Many governments around the world have initiated lockdown except for what are deemed as essential, and essential industries and postal services and courier services have for the most part fallen into that category.
The first major benefit of courier software has been to navigate the major, unprecedented increase in online sales as physical stores have quickly run out of a range of items.
Regardless of the fact that many online retailers are hiking up the prices beyond a reasonable margin, there is now a considerable strain on couriers to over-perform despite serious limitations we all face in our country.
No Contact When Delivering Parcels
Courier software enables electronic signatures as well as distance signatures so the customer or receiver of the parcel does not need to be in contact with the driver. Furthermore, real time tracking as well as online ordering, automated emails and notifications are sent to all customers with a click of a button. So actual staff need not carry out these tasks when Delivery Master Courier Software makes this a breeze.
Since data entry, report generation and a user-friendly interface are all provided by Delivery master courier software for same day deliveries, it enables managers to make informed decisions especially with regard to deliveries, data analysis and tracking.
Basic Level Efficiency is a Big Gain
Delivery master Courier software is excellent at even basic level efficiency which would otherwise require a manager’s supervising eye. Dispatch, picking up parcels and delivering them safely, and on time, is of utmost importance for courier service providers, and courier software provides added benefits of syncing into mobile devices, so there is no exchange of paperwork between employees and data is registered and updated automatically on the back office mainframe.
Since stress levels are naturally high as everyone is trying to social distance to prevent exposure, the lack of physical contact and the ability of the delivery software to maintain a database (to generate invoices and collect signatures amongst other important factors) translates in to great customer service which can continue with fewer complaints from customers.
Courier Company Administrative Tasks
The software’s ability to store data, generate easy to understand reports and updates as well as to provide great features found in the back office system, which among other things helps to keep a check on the whereabouts of fleet and drivers, means administrative tasks do not have to be burden any longer.
Changes of Locations? No Problems Using a Delivery Software
