Overview of Bobware Features
BOBware consists of the following benefits to help you become a more profitable volumetric concrete delivery company. It is a “dispatching” and “ticketing” system, which is very VISUAL in nature. You can see which jobs are scheduled on the dispatcher’s screen and on other screens in the office, as well as cell phones or tablets as you so require. For each truck and for each day, you can see a column on the screen which represents the hours of that day. If a job is scheduled for a certain time of the day, it is clear from the screen that the job is scheduled, about how much time it should take, and other job details.
This is the biggest benefit of our system. Because of the visual nature of our scheduling system, you will be able to do a better job of dispatching the trucks. For many or most of our customers, that equates to scheduling an extra job each day. Instead of 3 deliveries per day, you can start getting four on many days. That is like a 25% increase in revenue.
Sales Tax Reporting
During the initial implementation, the set up for sales tax reporting is done. This includes setting up all delivery cities within a 100 mile radius with their appropriate tax rates. Those tax rates are entered and verified during the initial implementation.
Training and Support
We use interactive screen sharing tools to work with you and your personnel to get you comfortable with the software. We can set up work sessions around your schedules.
Customized Delivery Ticket
Your choice of delivery ticket is configured and customized with your logo, company name and other declarations. If you are an existing business, your customer information can be imported from another data source (accounting system, excel spread sheet, etc.)
This means you don’t have to maintain servers and computers for the purpose of running this software. It runs in the cloud. You only have to be able to communicate with the cloud. See elsewhere for details concerning what we think are best practices for that communication concerning tablets, printers, etc.
