Organization Structure

In this article, you will get acquainted with the structure of your Onfleet organization and the difference between the three email fields available in the "Settings" option of the administrator account for an organization. 

 

This article covers: 

 

Organization Structure

Administrator

Your organization has one administrator which is created upon registration. Only the administrator can configure the organization, add and manage teams, hubs, and dispatchers. The administrator can also add drivers and access analytics for the entire organization.

Teams

Teams group drivers and dispatchers together and are used to segment an organization by geographic area, operational unit, or any other desired structure. The administrator has access to all teams while dispatchers and drivers have access only to teams they have been assigned.

Hubs

A Hub is a central location from which your drivers start and end routes. For example:

  • A city headquarters
  • A warehouse
  • A central kitchen
  • A parking lot

Hubs are created by administrators and can be assigned to one or more teams. However, teams can only be assigned one hub at a time.

Dispatchers

Dispatchers are added by the administrator and are assigned to one or more teams. A dispatcher is a dashboard user who views and/or manages drivers and tasks for assigned teams. For example:

  • A driver manager
  • A route planner
  • A customer service agent

Drivers

Drivers are added by the administrator of an organization or a dispatcher and are assigned to one or more teams. They complete tasks in the field using the driver app on Android or iOS.

Tasks

Tasks represent pickup or delivery work to perform at a destination. For example:

  • Delivery of groceries or meal kits
  • Delivery of a medicine prescription
  • Pickup of laundry or dry-cleaning
  • Pickup of a retail/e-commerce return

Tasks are completed by drivers using the driver app on Android or iOS.
