Dispatching Routes from the Web Platform to Android and iOS Mobile Devices

With Route4Me’s near real-time data synchronization, you can dispatch the routes created on the Web Platform directly to your field employees’ mobile devices. Thus, whenever dispatchers and managers back at the office plan and optimize routes using the 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 apps. Moreover, you can also set up alert notifications that automatically send out custom-defined messages to customers once their orders are dispatched. To learn more about setting up action triggered notifications and customizing notification messages, visit this page.

 

All you need to do for dispatching a route from the Route4Me Web Platform to the mobile device of a particular team member is to assign this team member to the corresponding route. You can assign a team member to a route when specifying the route’s parameters. To do so, first, go to the “User” tab and then select the user that you want to assign to the route from the corresponding drop-down list. You can learn more about creating new and managing the existing users on this page.
