We are happy to introduce PowerDispatch‘s latest release that includes many new features highly requested by our customers.
Giving you maximum efficiency
PowerDispatch ’s Jobs Board was upgraded to include a new Map tab as well as Address and Radius filters, so you can track your jobs in a view that fits you! Giving you the ability to browse quickly in map, calendar and list views
Simply input the desired zip code in the new Address filter and chose the address you need from the list. Once the address is selected the Job board will change automatically to reflect your search results. If you wish to see a different radius, make sure to change the Radius filter before choosing the address.
Your jobs on the Map view appear as pins in the jobs color. When you click on a pin a popup of the job details comes up allowing you to quickly view your jobs and edit them by clicking on the Job ID. For ultimate flexibility you can zoom the map in and out using the scroll bar on the left as well as filter the map using the other available Job Board filters.
Making it easy for you to work smarter
Most business owners would agree that an organized and efficient workflow is a key to maintaining happy clients and having a successful business. Keeping this in mind, PowerDispatch’s new Comments feature was designed to make it easy for you to work smarter.
You now can add unlimited job comments by using the new Comments tab in the Add Job page. To help you achieve the most productive workflow, PowerDispatch’s Comments allow you to toggle freely between editing the job information and the job comments while saving it all once.
This is not all. We also added new settings that allow you to set default comments organized by categories of your choice. These preset comments will then appear in the New Comment dropdown from which you can choose instantly, making sure that you are not wasting time on manual typing and unnecessary labor.
