Doorstep services

Several businesses use Dista’s AI-enabled location intelligence platform to offer various doorstep services like food delivery, hyperlocal delivery, pathology lab sample collection, and more. A field executive completes all these services, and one of the main challenges is to track them when they are on the go. Our field service management software helps managers and supervisors get a bird’s eye view of their field executives and improve their productivity.
