Mandata has launched a new job management system to help owner-drivers and operators with small fleets run their businesses more efficiently.
Mandata Now is a cloud-based job management tool, designed specifically for smaller haulage companies that need help to run their transport operation.
It reduces administration and cuts down paperwork, allowing users to organise tasks in one place.
Available for the first month free of charge and normally priced at £49.99 per month (per user), Now requires no formal training or set up and users can be up and running in minutes.
Jobs can be allocated vehicles, drivers and sub-contractors. Job progress can be updated manually or using Mandata’s e-pod solution to get real time updates from drivers. Once the job is complete Now will also send the customer an invoice.
It gives smaller haulage companies an alternative to using diaries, spreadsheets and whiteboards to run their transport operation, giving them a real time visibility and control.
“This is great for owner-drivers and managers of smaller fleets, who need to share their time between back-office duties and running an efficient transport operation,” said Mandata’s development director Kevin Marshall. “The system’s designed to be quick and easy to master, with useful features like a quick-view calendar that makes for a well-managed diary to ensure nothing gets overlooked.”
