Ryan McIntosh reached out and it helped that he is a fellow Kansas City transplant. 

- What was your process for sending and receiving inventory prior to Dispatch?

We used other, traditional courier services but really liked the interface and response time of Dispatch

- Any special instance where Dispatch came through in a pinch or went above and beyond what you expected?

More than once, we set up a shipment and the driver showed up within 5 minutes. It seemed like they were waiting in the parking lot.
