Q Despatch Chooses Magenta's Echo Software to Deliver On-Time Precision

Q Despatch has chosen to implement Echo, the real-time scheduling and dispatch platform developed by Magenta Technology. The Echo real-time scheduling and dispatch platform was chosen over other options because being on-time and reliable are critical to Q Despatch's service delivery within the public and private sectors. These include NHS critical-care patient transportation both within the UK M25 and UK-wide, regular NHS patient movement, special needs and vulnerable people transportation - all of which have to meet strict time tables. These services demand service excellence and a rigorous customer focus well beyond that normally required. Accordingly, Q Despatch is registered as Compliant by the Care Quality Commission, probably has the more percentage of wheelchair accessible vehicles in London, and all drivers have had significant additional training. Echo's operational platform was exactly the solution they needed. With its unique to the private hire market scheduling technology, it enables very precisely calculated 'dynamic response times'. Its sophisticated scheduling technology not only manages, in real-time, the forecasting of where and when drivers will be available after their 'job in progress', but also dynamically schedules those drivers on future pre-booked jobs to provide realistic response times for 'on-demand' queries - so that every driver can reliably be on time.
