Newsletter Release Notes:
Linked Locations,
SEO Optimization and
Dispatcher Columns

Linked Locations

Linked Locations let you share Restaurant Inventory as well as Driver Pool between 2 or MORE locations so the customers who are close enough to restaurants in both locations can have a wider variety of restaurants to choose from.

Why would you want to have your Locations Linked?

  1. This is a great way to cover smaller areas between your bigger markets and it can lead to rapid expansion of your markets and business so you can grow and generate bigger sales numbers as well as recruit more drivers and provide better service for your customers.

  2. You can add time buffers to one specific area/location and then link them all together

  3. Separating finances between areas can also be useful for a clearer performance review of certain parts of your market as well as making it possible to give out bonuses to your managers and/or location operators as an incentive to grow the market.

    If you would like to expand you business and start setting up Linked Locations please read our full article and guide HERE.

Search Engine Optimization Settings

Ensuring you are properly using Search Engines can greatly help in getting you more traffic and business on a day to day basis and there are many things you can tweak and adjust in order to boost higher in the searching algorithms.

Big players like Google take a lot of things in consideration when it comes to rankings and it's sometimes hard to understand and wrap your head around it all, that's why we have an automated system that will put a SEO template for you if all the SEO fields are empty.
If you input any information afterwards it will not be overwritten!

If you change something and you’re not sure how to go back just delete all the fields under your
Contacts/Notes/SEO tab and our system will fill all the fields out overnight.

If you would like to learn the best practices and what SEO means in general please follow our full guide HERE.

Dispatcher Columns

Dispatcher Columns are indicators that you see on your dispatch screen about your driver's status, order details, customer info and much more.

Understanding how these columns can help you become more effective is a great way to increase the workload and order volume you and your team members can handle.
The columns will also be a great way to understand your business better and have better management decision going forward.

If you would like to learn about the details behind this feature and how to use it please read the full article HERE.

Additional Features and Updates

Adding Drive-Thru restaurants to your Delivery Service can greatly expand the choices your customers have which can in turn increase your daily sales and make your drivers happier.

In this case you will have to enable PoP (Pay on Pickup) and PiP (Place in Person) orders with Smart Pay cards.

These cards will be linked to your Stripe account and allow your drivers to place orders at Drive-Thrus and pay for them quickly, read more about it HERE.

Utilizing our 3rd Party Partnerships will allow you to handle more orders with less drivers when you’re in a pinch.

You can manually get quotes and send a 3rd Party Driver yourself or let AutoDispatch send orders once you hit an above average Delivery Time Threshold.

Read on to learn how to process a quote and which new information you can see on your Dispatch screen HERE.
