How well do you understand your delivery business? Orders are dispatched out the door, but without direct customer feedback, do you really know if your deliveries are on time?
An analysis of data over time can uncover issues that may be impacting your business. But it can be difficult to look at a spreadsheet of numbers and intuitively understand what the numbers mean. Visual analytics software is different. A solution like LiveMaps can give you a different view of delivery performance.
The ability to visualize exactly what is going on can be a critical aid to improving efficiency. A visual dispatch system helps expediters see delivery orders, quoted times, zones, distances, and traffic all at once in a map view they can easily understand at a glance.
On the POS screen, a dedicated expediter touchscreen display, or a big-screen TV on the wall, this rich visual display can keep drivers, dispatchers, and the whole kitchen up to speed.
Is your staff equipped to expedite deliveries?
Delivery customers place orders in a growing number of ways. While you may not accept orders via text or chat today, you probably receive orders regularly by phone and online—and perhaps through one or more third-party ordering services. Increasing the efficiency of your order entry process will help you win more delivery business—and increase delivery profit. Improving the speed and accuracy of order entry helps you reduce errors and shrink labor costs for deliveries up front.

“Would you like to make it a combo?” is a phrase quick service restaurants have drilled into the heads of every customer for generations.
