Our assessments are designed to provide high quality data and feedback with a visible system for improvement and growth. Our two signature assessment options are:
ARROW is an extensive review of the operation highlighting 12 key areas with 360 data points of evaluation. Dispatch performance is a key component of the ARROW Assessment along with a holistic look at the operation.
DART is a more selective and focusted review of dispatch and attractions operation and leadership. DART is focused on 6 key areas with 20+ data points and focused dispatch information and feedback.
If you have aquatic attractions or waterslides, we can confidently say YES! From small single slide facilities to large scale waterparks, Dispatch Smart has been proven to work effectively!
The Dispatch Smart program is a flat rate cost based on the number of attractions / dispatchers. The flat fee includes everything, so it is easy for budgeting and forecasting. Contact us today to request specific pricing based on your facility use.
We recommend 1-3 months depending on the number of staff to be able to train your team and give them time to complete the trainings. We have implemented in just a few weeks, but a longer lead time makes it a little easier.
No problem, we have Dispatch Smart in year round operations. We are happy to help you integrate the new program into your current operations confidently and easily.
Our program has been very successful at facilities with J-1 staff members. We have received great feedback that they appreciate the structure and it made the process easier to understand. We have some helpful tips and strategies for implementing with J-1 staff members as well!
We would love to help! We believe data and numbers are an important conversation to have with decision makers. We have comprehensive informational materials we can send you and we are happy to jump on a short zoom call for an introduction and overview. We know that once they are exposed to the information they will understand the immense value Dispatch Smart brings. Contact us today to get more information or set up and intro call.
No, our program is different and completely specific to water attractions / water slides. We believe roller coasters / hard rides are dispatched, trained, and operated much differently than a water slide is. Roller coasters typically have a large dispatch operation with a high volume of people being dispatched at the same time. Roller coasters have a lot less rider freedom and less room for rider error. Roller coasters tend to have a lot less attraction variables to consider. Rides training typically involves training focused on one attraction for an extended period of time (4-6+ hours). Waterpark operations and training is much different and our program and process is a reflection of these differences. Both types of dispatch are important to be done safely, but we have found they are very different. We have worked with several waterparks who have tried to implement a rides based program into their waterparks, and were not happy and did not see the results they wanted. Fortunately, Dispatch Smart was able to provide them with an effective dispatch program that has proven to work great for their water parks!
No, our program is completely online with a series of dynamic training videos and resources. This saves our clients money and time. We always set up remote video calls to connect and check in with our clients during the process so we are involved and connected throughout the journey. We do offer optional on site implementation or in person trainings if this is something your operation needs, just ask for a quote here!
No, we have some Dispatch Smart clients who just do the training program without an assessment, and we have others who do assessments. We are happy to help in whatever way makes the most sense for you and your operation. We do believe the assessments are able to bring a level of accountability, growth minded approach, awareness, and validation; but they are not a requirement for use of the Dispatch Smart program.
