23 Jun Frequently Asked Questions About Onfleet
What is Onfleet?
Onfleet is a leading delivery management solution that helps businesses around the world assign and track their local deliveries, communicate with their drivers and customers, and rapidly scale their delivery operations. Onfleet’s modern suite of offerings includes a powerful web-based dispatcher and reporting dashboard, intuitive iOS/Android mobile apps for drivers, automatic customer notifications with real-time tracking, and robust APIs to support any type of integration.
Will Onfleet work well for my business?
If your business involves making deliveries and managing a fleet of drivers (whether in-house or contracted), we can help streamline your operations. Onfleet has been optimized specifically for high-volume, high-velocity delivery operations and excels in both on-demand and scheduled use cases.
How much does Onfleet cost?
We believe you should only pay for the value you derive from our software. Because of this, we don’t charge for setup, training, or integrations, and we don’t limit the number of drivers or dispatchers associated with your account. Instead, we bill based on the number of pickup and delivery tasks you complete each month.
We also scale with you. As your delivery volume increases, you can look forward to a decreased per-task rate to reduce your marginal costs. Our full pricing table and interactive sliding cost estimator can be found at our pricing page.
Do you have drivers that I can use?
At this time, we don’t provide drivers for use in conjunction with our software. However, there are a number of courier and delivery providers on the Onfleet platform that would love to hear from you! Contact us for an introduction.
How many people can use Onfleet at a time?
As many as you need! Since we bill on a per-task basis, feel free to add as many drivers and dispatchers as you need at no additional cost.
Do you have route optimization?
Yes! Contact us to schedule a demo.
How do you calculate ETAs?
We calculate ETAs (or estimated times of arrival) by using a variety of inputs including: speed limits, recommended speeds, historical speeds, traffic data, and a worker’s real-time workload and location. By comparing predictions about what should be with what’s actually happening in the field, we’re able to estimate arrival times with a high degree of precision.
Are you a white label solution?
The delivery tracking page, which allows your customers to track their driver, can be fully branded with your company’s logo and custom color scheme. We maintain our brand across the dashboard and mobile applications to ensure a consistent and delightful user experience.
Do you work outside of the US?
Yes. We have customers in over 20 countries around the world. Onfleet only requires web connectivity and the ability to send out SMS notifications. Therefore, it works best in areas where telecommunications networks are robust and reliable. If you’re unsure whether Onfleet will work for you, send us an email!
Will my drivers need their own phones?
Yes, drivers will need Android or iOS phones with active data plans in order to use Onfleet. Some of our clients supply their drivers with smartphones, and others reimburse their drivers for data usage. Let us know if you need help determining the best option for your business.
Can I collect signatures upon delivery?
Absolutely! Signature and photo capture are available within the driver app to make proof of delivery a breeze.
Do you track drivers when they’re offline?
Do you have an API?
Yes, the Onfleet API lets you perform common dashboard actions, such as creating and assigning tasks to drivers via secure HTTP request. Check out our API documentation for more information.
Can I integrate without developers?
Onfleet was designed to be used out of the box by non-technical people. Technical integration isn’t required and is not a barrier to get up and running.
If you’re looking for a tighter integration or a way to rapidly deploy a pilot, our private Zapier integration can help. In just a few minutes, and without a single line of code, you can push new tasks into Onfleet from your existing websites, apps, and back-end fulfillment systems. We can also connect you with our third-party developer partner, who can help you build a custom Onfleet integration. Contact us to learn more.
