When managing the delivery operation of your construction business, it is critical to have 3 aspects of your businesses’ workflow in place:
Your teams have a clear understanding of their tasks
Each worker can get on with their day’s tasks with minimal disruptions
Management can oversee all the progress for the day, and know that each day’s plans are being carried out efficiently.
For construction businesses, we understand that each day comes with unpredictable disruptions, and there is always hurdles that distract teams from completing all the tasks and jobs they had set out to do.
To avoid these disruptions having a heavy impact on the success of a day, it is vital to have systems in place that keep each worker focused, help teams communicate effectively with customers and each other, as well as systems that allow management to have a crystal clear view of the operation.
RouteMagic has been developed to address the unique challenges and needs that this sector faces, and this article will explore 3 of the ways our delivery management system helps you manage teams more effectively, track progress, and keep your teams focused on their goals.

Mobile app to structure daily tasks
Our mobile delivery app has been designed to be easy-to-learn, and easy to use, so no matter who is using it, they can carry out their daily tasks in the most productive way.
Drivers start the day with a vehicle check to ensure lorry/van maintenance. Following this, they can load the materials they need to deliver for the day, adding any materials that they know they need manually as additional items. Their route is set out and the sequence of deliveries is shown to them, with google maps integrations so they are guided on their journey.
Drivers log all proof-of-deliveries and order information on the app itself, with no need for dockets or paper trails which inevitably result in some manual error or lost paperwork that causes more work down the line. Any specifics regarding an ord
