Overall Satisfaction with Dispatch

We were using a very archaic methodology for tracking and shipping our orders. When switching to Dispatch, we wanted to move our shipping department into a more streamlined program, with a focus on ensuring that the delivery teams are completing the deliveries on time and notifying customers of estimated times of arrival and any shipment delays they might expect.
  • Easy to set up
  • Good integration with customer notification
  • Streamlined set up process and support
  • Buggy desktop app interface
  • Mobile app needs a lot of improvement
  • Login for vehicles can be a bit tricky
  • Dispatch gives us the ability to track orders that have shipped locally
  • Digital footprint
  • Reduction of carbon emissions using paper products
We used Route4Me but surprisingly there are very few alternatives and companies on the market that are well suited for performing this kind of tracking. I am somewhat disappointed that Dispatch is the only option, only because the desktop and mobile applications can be so buggy and, at times, unreliable. But, the other existing options on the market are much worse.
Dispatch has timely customer service and set up support. Unfortunately, they are only able to assist via phone and do not have a chat option. Chatting would be much easier for being able to answer simple questions or software issues instead of having to wait on hold over the phone.

Dispatch is well suited for teams looking to improve their delivery notification process. The ability to notify customers via automated phone call or text is invaluable and takes the burden away from the drivers and delivery team on the ground, who can be unreliable and inefficient at times depending on the situation.
