Set Route Destination Status – iPhone and iPad Route Planner

With Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner app, you can easily plan and optimize routes and use route navigation on the go from your iPhone or iPad. Furthermore, our iOS route planner app provides multiple tools for tracking route progress and recording various last-mile operations. Specifically, you can assign different route destination status types to your route stops.

Assigning statuses to route destinations gives you more realistic route KPIs, improves route management, helps to raise customer satisfaction, and much more. Additionally, Route4Me’s iOS app supports real-time order status and delivery status synchronization with the Web Platform. In this way, drivers can assign statuses from the app and automatically sync them. In turn, route planners and managers can track order statuses, monitor route progress, track delivery statuses, etc., using the Web Platform.
