Connect Your Courier Website To Anything With The TransitQuote API

An effective website is a powerful tool for your transportation business.

Modern websites have enhanced or entirely taken over many business functions such as:

  • Marketing your services
  • Booking customer work requests
  • Sending customer information to team members
  • Providing answers to customer queries
  • Providing updates on the status of work in progress
  • Accepting online care payment

All these tasks generate valuable information that your business can report on such as:

  • Financial information
    • Price quotes presented to customers
    • Sales revenue
    • Sales taxes
  • Time Management Information
    • Dates and times of bookings
    • Time taken for staff to complete services
    • Response time requested by customers
  • Customer Information
    • Contact Information
    • Customer Enquiries
    • Website analytics

With the TransitQuote API we give your transportation business website the ability to connect to any external application or system.

All the data above can be monitored, collated, reported on and used to improve your business.

What are the business benefits you expect your website to provide?

Do you think of it purely as an advertisement, much like your Yell.com listing?

Does your website exist to help new customers to discover you when the search for couriers, freight or delivery services on Google search?

Is it simply a quick way for customers to look up your business phone number?

These are all great reasons, but they are only scratching the surface of what your website can do for you.

Introducing TransitTeam

Managing a transportation business can be stressful.

As your client base grows so do your responsibilities.

More jobs to complete means taking on more staff.

More staff means more to organize, more communication, less time for you and often more stress.

As you hire contractors, part time staff and full time staff it’s essential to make sure the right person has the right information at the right time.

This is true of any business, but it is especially the case when each job has a tight deadline.
