CORE SYSTEM FEATURES High Speed Auto-Despatch Don’t waste time by having drivers sat around doing nothing waiting for your system to give work out. Storm despatch server can process a driver clearing and give them their next job in under a second! Making Auto-Despatch Fairer for Everyone Utilising Storm despatch’s uniquely fair auto-despatch system, all of your drivers can have an equal share of the work available. Work is automatically allocated by the server to either the closest driver, or the driver who has been waiting the longest since their last job. It’s up to you how the server chooses which driver to give the next job to – or you can let the server choose depending on how busy your circuit is at any given time. When drivers bid for a job, the drivers who are slower with their PDA can sometimes get left behind. With Storm despatch , this problem is avoided and the driver who has been waiting the longest to get a job takes priority over a driver who has just had a job. Automated Backups Automated backups to the location of your choice to ensure that your system is always safe and protected from failure. Ultra-Reliable Storm despatch Server utilizes industry-leading Microsoft SQL Server technology to ensure that your system is ultra-reliable. No wasting time waiting for old systems to perform a re-index each time you restart your server – or trying to troubleshoot a server running on an old DOS system. Storm despatch runs on Windows Server technologies. Proving to be the best in service and reliability. Fail-Safe With Storm despatch Server’s advanced self-monitoring systems, the system is able to automatically fix itself should there be any problems! Instant Support Storm despatch Server will automatically notify Storm despatch Support should it encounter any problems – that way, an error at 3 AM could have been reported and fixed by our dedicated support team before you even get up in the morning!

Should the worst happen ? Telephone lines failing, power cuts, workmen cutting through your lines etc. We know from experience the catastrophic effect the loss of telephone services has on private hire companies, no calls no customers! We also know that these problems tend to happen at your busiest times, at night and can take time to resolve. Storm Cloud Networks offer 4 levels of service backup that will keep the calls coming in Your telephone numbers are your customers access to your business, we ensure that they will get through regardless! 1. Using digital trunks means that callers never get a busy tone, if the lines fail, calls will automatically diverted to an alternative provider (No loss of Caller ID to Booking System) 2. If Broadband fails, calls will automatically divert to standard PSTN or ISDN lines (No loss of Caller ID to Booking System) 3. Alternatively Calls can automatically be diverted to Mobile GSM lines connected directly into the telephone system (No loss of Caller ID to Booking System) 4. If the power fails, calls can be diverted to multiple Mobile phones which will all ring simultaneously, just like the PABX Backed by Storm Cloud 24/7/365 online support we keep you communicating with your customers The benefits are obvious, however implementing these solutions could also reduce your Telephone bill.
