Yes. The batch uploader into the route planner and address book permits any paying customer to upload tens of thousands of addresses into our system, search them, and view them on a map.
Typically customers see huge reductions in the amount of time it takes to plan routes and the number of miles that the field-personnel spend on the road visiting locations. That’s because it takes a significant amount of time to optimize routes for many drivers that are visiting many routes, especially when customers have demanding time windows.
At this time Route4Me only holds weekly how-to webinars, but we try to attend networking events when possible.
Route4Me accepts payments by credit card, through PayPal, and by bank wire or ACH transfer.
On the routes map and routes list page, the search feature looks for word matches inside the name of the route. It also searches for all addresses inside the route, all custom data associated with the address, and all notes associated with all the addresses in the route.
We recommend setting fuel costs at the beginning of each workday inside the Route4Me.com fuel costs settings page. Once fuel costs are set, then any route that is planned, which has a vehicle assigned to it, will have estimated fuel costs. The fuel costs are calculated by taking the average miles per gallon that you specified in the vehicles page, and the multiplying that by the total number of miles in your route. The fuel costs are then permanently stored and associated with that particular route. This is important because as fuel prices change over time, the original total fuel cost for older routes remain unchanged.
