In business, your choices will determine your outcomes. Based on how favorable these outcomes of your choices are, you will use them to decide what steps you need to take next in order to foster growth within your business.
This is why it is very important to gather relevant data for further analysis, so that you can determine what areas need further improvement and what changes can be made accordingly. Considering that the courier software is a medium through which information is entered by you, the delivery driver and your customers, technology allows you to record all this valuable information so that you can get insights into delivery patterns and the performance of your delivery, transport and or logistics business. At the end of the day, using courier software offers you valuable information to help you make relevant and informed business decisions.
Courier Software Allows You to Make Better & Informed Predictions
As you know that using symbols we have all agreed to “Stop” at an intersection, and using a ? we all agreed that is a question mark and should be used to mean a “Question”. Symbols and patterns are an important part of our daily lives. Almost everything works by patterns, and these patterns can be used to guide future decisions. That means, gathering and analyzing data that can be collected using Delivery Master Software will provide you with the information you need, when you need it, enabling you to monitor and analyse business performance.
Delivery Master Courier Software is available either as a fully managed hosted service or a traditional on premise software installation.
Fix Common Errors and Improve Operations
OK, let’s face it, we know that mistakes can be made regardless of the type of business or industry we operate in. However, as you know that we as courier business owners need to make sure that we reduce an absolutely minimize errors, because unlike many other business models, logistics and transport industry is unforgiving when it comes to errors. For example: your driver turning up at an address with the wrong package not only provides bad customer experience, it actually costs you huge amounts of Pounds £ £ £ because no same day courier business can afford to make these types of mistakes often.
Using technology for your courier business’s advantage will help minimize common mistakes such as wrong order and address input, as a result reduce costs and increase profits.
Monitor Employee & Driver Productivity
Having the ability to oversee operations of your business through a single central point puts you “the business owner” in total control. For example: our drivers mobile app reduces calls into the office, captures POD and POB signatures, gives real-time updates from all your delivery drivers and automatically emails your customers with delivery notification. Signatures captured on the mobile app can be emailed to your customers directly or even printed on delivery notes in the Delivery Master Back Office System and sent as hard copies. UK customers can also print them directly from the Delivery Master Customer Web Portal. Imagine doing all these manually without using technology? That wouldn’t be smart.
Better Target Your Customers by Using a Courier Software
Once you learn more about customer behavior and activities with the data available to you, you will gain greater in depth insight as to whom they are, what they like or dislike how they react to certain things such as perfectly timed or late parcel deliveries. This helps you to define your customer base which in turn makes it easier to find new customers, and it will also help you to be able to better communicate with your current customers to provide even better customer services.
Previously Stored Data for Possible Dispute Resolution
Although rare, it happens, suppose you have a conflict with one of your customers, and you will need to attain previous records to help you both to come to a resolution?
There are many scenarios in which this can happen, and you need to be sure that you have the information in such cases. Sometimes situations come up long after a transaction has been carried out, and sifting through countless records which was the case using manual methods to manage courier services is no longer viable in today’s competitive courier industry.
