Using an outdated courier software, or planning to upgrade your courier management system? Performed a Google search for the “best courier management software in UK” and seen a smorgasbord of choices but unsure which is most suited for your particular courier company?
No doubt that choosing courier software and its management tools can be confusing because each software is not the same and is not equal in terms of features and performance. Regardless of the size of your courier company, let us simplify your options when deciding on a new courier software that performs and easy to integrate to fulfill the requirements of your business.
The Need for Your Courier Company to Evolve
First be assured that no matter how big or small your courier company may be, it will benefit in the short to long term from an investment in fleet management tools found in courier software. In fact, this software investment is valuable because it keeps you from having to hire extensive staff since many administrative tasks are taken on by the software itself. Furthermore, using a courier management software, you are in driver’s seat for overall management that is centralised through delivery master back office system which is available either as a fully managed hosted service or a traditional on premise software installation.
Things to Consider When Buying a Software for Fleet Management and Courier Operations
Because each business is unique, software tools should be purchased by not only looking at current requirements but also at future growth projections and goals.
Remember that managing the fleet is only part of the overall operation of courier business. That means, when searching for a courier management software, you need make sure that at least the fleet, drivers, orders and customers are using the system and thus not just buy a fleet management software as a standalone package for your courier company. It isn’t enough that only the fleet and drivers are managed by a software.
Fleet management tools or a simple courier software rarely functions alone unless very basic features are being utilised. You need to consider the fact that there may be additional cost of upgrading your current computers, buying tablets or phones (to use the system, to collect and enter data) for your drivers as well as GPS tracking capabilities for vehicles. All this cost needs to be balanced against the cost of the courier software package as a new company may have trouble initially justifying this expenditure.
Most courier management software on the market allow you to choose between pre-made software package or a customisable one that is built from scratch. But what usually tends to happen with these is the fact “pre-made courier software packages usually does not have the required functionality, and, ones that are built from scratch are just too expensive for most courier companies in United Kingdom“.
We’ve created delivery master courier software so that it could be the game changer in the UK courier software market. That means, when you want full functionality that is simple to use and integrate, a software package that caters for management, drivers and customers all at once. That’s the software package you are looking for. Above all else, we’ve taken out the expensive factor making delivery master courier software affordable compared to others and what it can deliver in return for your courier company.
Consider the support (if any) you are getting from the actual courier software provider. Because at times, some other software providers may initially hook you up with cheap alternatives knowing that you will eventually need support using the software package. That is when ridiculous support costs and fees are slapped in your companies budget face. This support can be anywhere from technical help in installation as well as video or in-person training and demonstrations. Support is an area that we’ve also gone a step further from the rest, as such:
