Key Features of ‘Upper for Driver’ App
If the business owners are dealing with multiple deliveries, they hardly get time to guide drivers or deliver important instructions to them. Considering this scenario, what if you have an assistant who keeps the driver updated every time you send them messages.
The ‘Upper for Driver’ app does a similar job to gather all necessary delivery information for drivers. Sounds good? Then, let us explore its features by looking at which your driver would get hyped.
- Automatic Route Modification:
Our driver app syncs automatically with the route planner which means it will display the updated route map. Also, it will let you open the map on the preferred mapping platform. In case, the route has been optimized, it will show the updated route plan on the screen.
2. Stop Information:
Accessing the driver app, you will know stop information like priority status, service time, stop type (delivery/pickup), and parcel information. It covers all necessary details so that you don’t have unnecessary stops to call dispatchers in between the delivery process.
3. Delivery Route Schedule:
Open the driver app and check out the delivery schedule for weeks or months in advance. Access the app anytime to know the number of deliveries for a specific day and plan your schedule accordingly. In case of changes in the route plan, it will reoptimize the entire route.
4. Delivery Status:
The driver app has an in-built algorithm that keeps the driver updated about the delivery schedule. Logging in, you can quickly check whether the parcel is ready for dispatch or not. It will be highlighted on the right side of the route list page.
5. Customer E-signature:
To make sure the parcel was delivered at the right place, drivers can receive the customer’s signature directly into the app. Plus, drivers can also capture the photos of the delivered item in case the recipient was unavailable at the location. In such cases, the app allows to add the delivery notes after completing the delivery.
Main Benefits of Using The ‘Upper for Driver’ App
- Live Route Tracking:
Installing the app, you will be notified every time you get the new delivery route. At the time of delivery, it automatically directs you to the destination point by avoiding road constraints. Keep following the route map in satellite, terrain, or normal view and reach the delivery location in the best possible way.
2. Driver Preference:
It is a dedicated app for the drivers that allows them to mark the deliveries as completed or skipped. According to that, it will modify the route map in such a way that deliveries must be completed within a decided time. A generated route plan would have highways or toll booths as per the driver’s convenience.
3. Accessible In Internet-free Zones:
Driver-friendly app has no working issues even if you go out of the network area. The route plan will continue to appear so that you can reach the next delivery stop without any hassles. Since you are on duty without internet support, delivery updates might be disrupted.
4. No Repeated Phone Calls:
Getting calls from customers would irk you amid the ongoing delivery process. But it won’t be the case on the driver app as it requests the customers to drop their comments in the delivery notes instead of making calls. Dispatchers, too, don’t need phone calls to update the status as you will receive the alerts directly on the app.
5. Easy Offloading Products:
Drivers usually have difficulties offloading the product from the vehicle. It may take more than usual to find the parcel and deliver it to the buyer. The driver app brings you parcel information which helps you locate the parcel inside the truck. Hence, you can hand over the parcel quickly.
Taking longer than usual to direct your driver to the delivery stop?

It is a specially designed app for delivery drivers to get real-time assistance while delivering the product. The driver app is a part of the Upper Route Planner, which connects the driver to the admin and customer simultaneously. As a result, it will be easier for drivers to perform deliveries in a timely manner.
Firstly, log in to the Upper Route Planner, and then add the driver’s information from the user panel. Thereafter, you can ask your drivers to install the app on their smartphones. If done, tell the drivers to use their email id or phone number (which you previously added as the user’s information) to log in to the app.
If you reoptimize the route on the route planner, the changes will appear on the driver app as soon as you finish reoptimizing routes. The driver will be directed as per the reoptimized route which means you don’t have to manually update the driver. Thus, there won’t be any miscommunication.
The ‘Upper for driver’ app runs swiftly even if there is no internet connectivity. But, the app will only sync the data or receive the update once it is reconnected to the internet.
