How to track employees & deliveries in real-time?

How to track employees & deliveries in real-time?

Roadcast Delivery – The best & the most efficient delivery & employee tracking tool.

Tracking your employees & deliveries in real-time can make a huge  difference. Are you losing out on business opportunities due to delayed or failed deliveries? Statistics suggest that 8 to 25 percent of revenue loss in most delivery based businesses such as restaurants or doorstep service providers is due to inefficiencies in the delivery chain.

Most common issues faced by businesses are :

  • Currently , customers are unable to track their order & know it’s exact location.
  • When an order is placed, it is assigned manually & handed over in the form of paper slips to the delivery boy
  • If the order gets delayed, the customers tend to get impatient & call up the restaurant/shop
  • Neither the restaurant or the customers know the location of the delivery
  • No way to make sure if order was successfully delivered
  • Companies unable to keep track of time wasted by field staff
  • Inefficiency in providing service at the right time.
  • Delays in service provision
  • False claims made by service employee regarding assigned jobs ( blames traffic, weather, unavailability of client at the other end)
  • Excessive reimbursement claims by employees based on fake expense data

Roadcast has the ideal set of tools to take care of all these problems. We are empowering businesses to achieve maximum efficiency while minimizing their operating costs. You ask how?
Well, here’s the answer-

Consider a small restaurant chain that receives an order. The order is quickly prepared & handed over to the delivery boy along with a piece of paper that has all the details of the delivery. The delivery boy leaves the restaurant with the order not knowing in which direction he is supposed to go. He takes the wrong road & gets stuck in traffic. The delivery boy ends up taking a longer route & the order, inevitably, gets delayed. The customer constantly tries to contact the restaurant & the delivery boy but doesn’t get a satisfactory explanation.

 

The restaurant has no clue where the delivery boy is exactly. The delivery boy is tensed & tries to lie his way out of the problem. When the food is finally delivered, the customer is unhappy & so is the delivery boy resulting in a bad rating or even a lost customer. The whole situation leaves a dent that impacts the whole system.

Let’s evaluate the effects :

  1. Longer route results in higher reimbursement costs
  2. The customer is unhappy, gives a negative rating & may not order again
  3. The delivery boy is unhappy
  4. There is a negative impact on the work environment

Now, this gets multiplied by the number of delivery boys & the number of failed / delayed deliveries.

Hunger can drive people crazy. Everything looks like food when you’re hungry.

How does Roadcast solve these issues?

Roadcast is the only viable & feasible solution that helps in efficient management of field employees & deliveries in real-time. A set of tools helps the store manager keep a track of the employees’ movement. Assigning orders is a simple task. The dashboard allows the store manager to assign orders to the delivery staff in the form of simple & highly accessible cards. These cards contain all the details regarding the delivery such as the address, contact number, delivery time & the item list. The app also guides the delivery boy to the location via. the shortest or least traffic route using google maps. The delivery boy can place calls directly to the customer with the tap of a finger.

While it helps the delivery boy in delivering efficiently, the store manager can track the delivery boys location live. Not just that, the store manager can even assign orders on the go. The dashboard allows the store manager to view the exact path & the idle time to make sure that efficiency is not compromised.

The store manager can keep a track of the exact device battery level of the delivery boy.
