Can Route4Me Send Delivery Notifications and Alerts to Customers?

Yes, Route4Me’s route optimization software offers you the ability to send delivery notifications and alerts via SMS texts, E-Mails, and Voice Calls. Moreover, your delivery drivers can automatically trigger the notifications upon entering a geofenced area. All this without additional efforts from you or your drivers. Plus, you can customize the messages Route4Me sends to your customers using placeholders. And you can also use email templates with a custom design.



Geofence-Triggered Delivery Notifications and Alerts

Route4Me provides multiple tools for automating your customer alerting processes with a click of a button. Furthermore, our Customer Email Alerting and Notifications add-ons are completely FREE. Also, you have 3 types of email notifications to choose from as per the order statuses, such as “Scheduled,” “You are next,” “Completed.” This ability helps your customers be constantly updated on their order statuses.

Similarly, Route4Me gives you the ability to send SMS notifications and alerts to your customers whenever you schedule, dispatch, and deliver their orders.

All the customer alerts sent via Route4Me are geofence-triggered. Namely, Route4Me enables you to create custom-shaped virtual parameters (geofences) around route stops. Next, when drivers enter geofenced areas, the system automatically sends your custom notifications to the corresponding customer.
