Route4Me Route Optimization Speed by Route Type

Route4Me’s proprietary and patented optimization algorithm is designed to solve all types of complex routing problems in the smallest amount of time possible.

The optimization process includes multiple stages, such as geocoding imported addresses, generating addresses from coordinates, correcting incomplete addresses, applying road, fleet, or team constraints, generating driving, walking, or bicycling directions, etc. Therefore, when optimizing your routes, Route4Me’s optimization engine computes through millions of possible routing scenarios to output the most cost-effective and time-efficient results.

Route4Me is completely cloud-based, allowing you to optimize hundreds of thousands of addresses without your hardware impacting the optimization performance and speed. Depending on the defined optimization parameters and business constraints, your routes’ optimization speed can differ accordingly. The table below provides the Average Route Optimization Speed of different routing scenarios with the give stops ranges.
