Distributors, manufacturers, warehouses, and other facilities without a proven dock-scheduling procedure face long delivery lines, increased wait times, and unnecessary idling of trucks. Appointment-Plus online scheduling software can automate, streamline, and improve dock-scheduling and delivery procedures.
Appointment-Plus provides dock managers and staff with web-based tools. For example, the driver/carrier self-scheduling tool allows them to view available delivery times and schedule their shipments when it's most convenient for them and at any hour of the day, not just during normal facility operating hours. Facilities simply provide the drivers and carriers their unique URL to access the scheduler.
Also included in the service are automated e-mail and text message reminders that can significantly reduce the number of late or missed deliveries. The software's record-keeping and reporting allow users to manage all carrier contact information and delivery notes in one centralized, secure location.
As a web-based application, Appointment-Plus online scheduling software requires only an Internet connection. There are no long-term contracts for the service and a complimentary training session is available with sign-up.
