You need to find a truck and you need it NOW. Everyone on your team pitches in, frantically searching the load boards. You find a match and quickly make the call. The only problem: your co-worker just talked to that same person. Not only have you wasted precious time, you’ve annoyed the person on the other end of the phone.
When you’re working in groups, “swarming” is common. Now, there’s finally a tool that can keep you from stepping on your co-workers’ toes when you’re all working the same search.
This month we launched groups functionality in our new, web-based DAT Power load board. This unique feature, which no other load board has, enables users working in groups to:
- See which of your co-workers is currently looking at a posting.
- Leave status updates for your co-workers such as: Called, No Longer Available, Refused, Unqualified, Accepted.
- Leave written notes to give your co-workers more details about your progress.
- All this is done in real-time so everyone on the team can see exactly what’s happening now.
If you’re interested in learning more about the groups functionality in DAT Power, or to see a demo, talk to your account representative or call or email us.
