Question and answer
Dispatching
Dispatch is a procedure for assigning employees (workers) or vehicles to customers. [ Industries that dispatch include taxicabs, couriers, emergency services, as well as home and commercial services such as maid services, plumbing, HVAC, pest control and electricians. With vehicle dispatching, clients are matched to vehicles according to the order in which clients called and the proximity of
vehicles to each client's pick-up location. Telephone operators take calls from clients, then either enter the client's information into a computer or write it down and give it to a dispatcher. In some cases, calls may be assigned a priority by the call-taker. Priority calls may jump the queue of pending calls. In the first scenario, a central computer then communicates with the mobile data terminal located in each vehicle (see computer assisted dispatch); in the second, the dispatcher communicates with the driver of each vehicle via two-way radio. With home or commercial service dispatching, customers usually schedule services in advance and the dispatching occurs the morning of the scheduled service. Depending on the type of service, workers are dispatched individually or in teams of 2 or more. Dispatchers have to coordinate worker availability, skill, travel time and availability of parts. The skills required of a dispatcher are greatly enhanced with the use of computer dispatching software (see computer aided call handling). ]

Dispatching
Weegy: Dispatching This document describes how you can manage dispatching data to Google Analytics using the Google Analytics SDK for Android v2. Overview Periodic Dispatch Manual Dispatch Overview In the Google Analytics SDK for Android, [ collected data like screen views or events are stored locally in a queue before being sent to the Google Analytics servers. The process by which these pieces of data (referred to here as "hits") are sent from the SDK to Google Analytics is known as dispatching. Dispatching is unique to the mobile collections libraries and is designed to mitigate the challenges of unreliable network access and limited battery life. There are two types of dispatching: Periodic dispatch – automatically dispatches hits at a recurring interval that you specify either programmatically or in your analytics.xml file. Manual dispatch – manually dispatch hits to send data when it is convenient for you, for example when there is an existing HTTP connection. Both types of dispatch occur off the main UI thread in version 2 of the SDK The remainder of this document will provide a more in-depth look at each type of dispatch and how to implement them in your app. ] (More)
