Powerful business tools are readily available that can dramatically improve the efficiency and accuracy of delivering service to your customers.

Future Quest solutions are truly “Road Worthy”.

Future Quest is that company.

- Who is Future Quest Wireless
Future Quest is a private corporation focused on helping organizations that have a field workforce, improve their operating efficiency, customer service and other business-critical factors. These improvements are accomplished through the implementation of market specific business management software applications. Most of these software applications are optionally wirelessly enabled to further extend the value proposition for the business end user.
Primary markets include passenger transportation, non-emergency medical transport, towing, field service and delivery. However, many of our products have applications outside of those industries.
- What does Future Quest do?
We work with prospective customers to determine their corporate and operational objectives, then make product recommendations that contribute positively towards their achievement.
If Future Quest does not represent an appropriate solution, we may offer our service in a consulting capacity to assist in finding the best solution available.
We are committed to recommending our own represented products only if they truly meet the needs of the prospective customer and provide a justifiable return on investment.
- What kind of products does Future Quest provide?
The company specializes in complete, market-specific dispatch systems, mobile payment processing, vehicle tracking and fleet management.
- What is a Workforce Solution?
When we speak of Workforce Solutions, we refer to the combination of a business management application and a data dispatch system.
A wide range of workforce automation applications are available for virtually every vertical market, including Field Service, Package Delivery, Property Management, Para-transit, Taxi, Limousine, Airport Shuttle and Towing, EMS, etc.
Most are highly specialized to address the needs of one particular vertical or even sub-vertical industry. For example, the functionality required by an Overnight Courier is substantially different than that required by a Same-Day Express Courier. Similarly, the decision criteria or rules by which a job is dispatched to a given driver in a taxi company are quite different as they would be for a limousine company.
- How does this help my company?
An effective business management system greatly accelerates the process of accepting, scheduling and pricing a customer order, then simplifies or even automates the assignment of that order to a field worker or driver.
Once assigned to a worker, most systems then monitor and record the status of all work on a real-time basis, allowing for accurate and professional response to customer queries, as well as the balancing of work-loads. In addition, a turnkey business management solution integrates the process of billing completed work, tracking accounts receivable and posting financial transactions to an accounting general ledger.
Throughout all of these processes, a series of industry specific reports keeps management informed of collective and individual performance results, business trends, problem areas and customer service levels, etc.
In any organization that involves the delivery of services through a field work-force, the greatest costs of providing that service can be found in its human resources and equipment. How efficiently these resources are utilized directly determines both the profitability and competitiveness of the business.
