Dispatch Routes from the Web Platform to Mobile Devices

With Route4Me’s dynamic routing software and near real-time data synchronization, you can dispatch a route created on the Web Platform directly to your drivers’ route planner apps. Thus, whenever dispatchers and managers back at the office plan and optimize routes using the Route Optimization Web Platform, the drivers who are out in the field can instantly open the routes that are assigned to them on their mobile devices using Route4Me’s iOS and Android Route Planner apps and start navigating the planned routes using the built-in voice-guided navigation as well as their favorite navigation apps such as Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, etc. Moreover, you can also set up alert notifications that automatically send out custom-defined messages to customers once their orders are dispatched. Learn more about how to set up action-triggered notifications and customizing notification messages.
