Your drivers have better things to do than being tied down to administrative tasks. Moving software lets your crews focus on the packing and unpacking of trucks — the stuff you’re paid for.
An Automated, Error-free Future
For your drivers and packers, they need to know where to be, and when. The days of hand-scribbling on work orders or crackly voices of a CB radio are long gone.
Give drivers what they want: their pickup and drop-off schedules on one calendar, along with driving directions and any detailed job order info. There’s a lot less room for error with the accuracy of Google Maps at your assistance.
Scheduling at the Click of a Thumb
For your crews in the trucks, the can view their booked jobs on a mobile app, right on their phone. Their responsibilities are clear, and they can clock in and out of jobs to let the office know how they are progressing.
Route Optimization: More Moves, More Profit
When you’re making several pickups in a day or plotting your area-wide schedule for the larger trucks in your fleet, it can save a lot of money to take advantage of route optimization. Let the algorithms do the hard work of figuring out how to best maximize your fleet’s travel times.
Nothing ties your company network together like online booking. Let the customer choose the time that works for them, based on your availability. You’ll tap into a new type of customer. You eliminate even more legwork between booking a job and when it’s complete.
A Moving Software Mini Case-Study
First Due Movers are moving company based in the state of Washington that brings the work ethic and values of firefighters to the moving industry. In just over eight years, they’ve grown from a single truck and good idea to a fleet that moves customers right across the country. As they grew, they had to replace paper and pens with more sophisticated tools.
Their scheduling and all moving jobs are now handled by Vonigo’s moving company software.”We began using Vonigo to streamline and organize nearly every process of our business,” says Co-founder and active firefighter Jeff Drozdowski.”Scheduling, quoting, internal and external communication — we’ve eliminated paperwork,” he adds. “In our scheduling alone, we have become 50% more efficient. That kind of savings makes us more profitable.”
