Please login or create an account here.
The Home Page
On top of the screen, you see the licensed bar with 3 indicators:
1) The number of purchased licenses. This indicates a limitation of transporters that you can add and use. For the first month of use, this number will be 0 (as this is trial period), but you can use as many transporters as you want – the first month will be free. After the first month, this number will indicate the amount of license that you actually purchased.
2) Amount of drivers that you identified and activated for your account.
3) % of your drivers with the assigned load.
There are 4 widgets on the home page. The first widget shows statistics on how many loads are currently active, delivered or delayed. You can filter this information by selecting a specific driver.
The second Widget shows completed loads per day and compares it to the last period. You can view weekly or yearly reports. The yearly report shows your gross earnings by months.
The third section shows the top 10 clients which means the customers where your drivers deliver cars. In the columns, you see how many cars you have delivered to this specific client and what is the gross amount of all delivered loads. With this tool, you can easily do the analysis of your business. In the fourth widget, you see the list of your drivers and their status, picked up statuses or no loads status. You can see earnings by your transporters and the amount of transported loads.
How to start working?
After registration, you will be able to use the app for free for the first month. All functionality is open for you with no limits. The main value of the web app is to help you to manage your loads and transporters. So in the beginning, you will need to invite your transporters. This can be done in the Transporters section (please check the instruction below). To be able to add Transporters in the Dispatcher web app – all your transporters have to be already registered in the GOFORIT mobile app as the Transporters. You may send them this link to download a mobile app if needed – https://apps.apple.com/app/id1232563804. After they registered as a Transporter, you will be able to find them in the Web app and invite to join your company. After they accept invitation you will see them in your transporters’ tray – they will be in not active status. Please activate them by pressing on the slider checkbox ( they should become green).
Now you can create a new load and assign activated transporter for this load. Each time you asign one of your transporters to the load – he/she will see the load in his Opportunity page. After transporter accepts the load, the status of the load will switch from New to Assigned. Now the Transporter should pick up the load, all the info (that you provided in the load page) about the load already in the transporters mobile app. After pick up, you may track where your load is in real-time on the Load map.
How to purchase a license?
For the first month, you don’t need to purchase a license – it is free for an unlimited amount of Transporters. After the first month, you will need to purchase a license for the needed amount of Transporters.
On the Home page, you see the button “Upgrade Now”. Press on the button. You see how many active drivers you currently have. By pressing on “-” or “+” you can downgrade or upgrade subscription plan. On the right side, you see total monthly payment and today’s total which reflects any changes done to the current subscription plan. Pay attention that if you are making changes in the middle of the current billing period, the actual change will happen after the billing month is over (for license decrease or cancelation). For example, if you cancel a subscription for one driver and it is 10 days before the next billing date then the driver will still be active for the next 10 days.
How to create a Load?
On the right side of the Loads tab, there is a button “Create Load”. By pressing it, you open a blank load page where:
1. You can fill out information manually or copy it from another website and paste it in the appropriate fields. Please make sure you’ve added cars in the number of cars field by pressing the “Add new car” button. Don’t forget to press the “Submit” button after each car. You can add up to 11 cars in 1 load.
2. Also, you can upload loads from Central dispatch or ACV auctions load board. Download PDF file from central dispatch or ACV auctions load board and simply upload it in your load page. The information will be automatically pasted from the PDF to the load fields. You can review to make sure info was accurately imported and assign a load to the driver.
The Load page consists of three sections: Search, Active Loads and Map.
- If you already have some amount of loads, you can search for any load in the Active loads section. Just type load ID, vehicle or customer info.
- In the Active load section, you see the list of loads that you can edit or delete. Press the Edit icon on your right side and you can change any information in the load. Pickup/Delivery dates, Add additional vehicles, change vehicle info, reassign to the new driver, etc.
Map. In the third section, you see drivers and their locations. The location is updated every minute and by clicking on the truck icon you can see what loads this driver has assigned and from where to where he/she is transporting cars. On the Loads page you can see all active loads.
How to add/delete your Transporters?
On the Transporters page, you see the list of drivers you have invited or is already connected to your company. In the search field, you can lookup transporters in our database. Once you find driver you can send the invite. In order driver to be connected to you, he/she should open Goforit Mobile App and accept the invite. If a driver, who starts working with you, is not present in the database you can ask him/her to create a transporter account in GOFORIT mobile app. After the transporter successfully created an account in GOFORIT mobile app, you can search for him again, and send an invite to connect to your company.
How to add Clients?
In the Clients section, you see clients who are in the GOFORIT database. These clients list is created based on GOFORIT transporters deliveries or pickups, when they create loads they also create profiles of dealerships, brokers, car yards, auctions, etc. You can start creating the client by pressing on the “Create New Client” button. Fill out all necessary information and press save. Below the button, you see how many clients are in the database. You can start creating load for each client simply pressing on “Create Load” which will open blank load page simultaneously pasting this client’s info in the pickup field.
How to use the History page?
History page shows all your delivered loads. You can search for loads by load id, Pickup or delivery date and address. You can download PDF of each load instantly to your computer by pressing “Save as PDF” button.
How the billing period and the payments are working?
Validity for Dispatcher license – 1 month. It is dynamically recalculated after each purchase/upgrade.
For example, you purchased the license for 10 transporters on 07/20/2019. You paid 30×10 = $300. Your next payment scheduled for 8/20/2019, and should be another $300. Your billing period, in this case, is from 07/20/2019 – 08/20/2019).
Let’s imagine the situation that on 08/10/2019 you’ve decided to upgrade to 11 Transporters (to add 1 more). Now the new billing period will be from 08/10/2019 till 09/10/2019. You need to pay for this one license that you want to add plus the difference between the monthly payment for 10 Transporters that you did before minus the amount that has already been paid and not used (in this case from 8/20 till 09/10). So the payment would be: $30 + ($300 – $100) = $230.
Based on a new billing period, the next scheduled payment will be on 09/10/2019 and it will be $330.
