Making sense of the dispatcher screen
The dispatcher screen provides two different views - the Explore view and the List view. Both views provide the functionality to align your operations among stakeholders such as partners, drivers, and last but not least, your customers!
The Explore view contains a map component. Helps the dispatcher use his/her intuition to improve operational efficiency.
The List view is particularly useful with the high volume of orders. More details of each order item.
TODAY AND TOMORROW: The Explore and List view shows only orders to be completed today and tomorrow to help you focus.
Do not be surprised if you create an order to be executed three days later and do not see it in these views. Simply adjust your filters to show more days and they will show right up!
Getting orders into Yojee
Orders can come in through various channels.
- A customer on Yojee can transfer you an order. This order will appear in your orders list for your review and acceptance.
- Customers without Yojee can fill in their orders using the booking page.
- You can directly create an order by clicking on the "Create order" button on the toolbar.
- Use batch upload to create many orders with a single action. This function is available through the dispatcher or the booking page.
- Create orders automatically using Yojee API integration. The fuller Yojee integration API can be found here.
Each order item in Yojee is created together with relevant steps and tasks to perform. Once you already have your supply chain set up in Yojee, these tasks can be assigned to your drivers or transferred to a partner. Here are some of the different ways:
|The task is dispatched according to a fixed rule upon creation in Yojee
|The task is assigned based on a dispatcher's decision
|Transfer to partner
|The task is transferred to a third party for processing
|Request Yojee optimizer to suggest an assignment for this task
|The task is broadcasted to drivers for acceptance
|Scan to assign
|The task is assigned to a driver who uses Yojee Drive App to scan the item waybill
EPODs: If you require any proof of deliveries collected, do configure them in the driver app actions under your Yojee Dispatcher Manage section.
All done with the basics!
With all parties notified about their tasks, you can sit back and relax!
Things are set in motion and Yojee helps to manage the required information flow between stakeholders. Every actor in your supply chain is kept up to date with the necessary information at exactly the right time.
When your delivery is complete, any proof of delivery is automatically made available for online access.
