Route optimization software will make your organization much more efficient.
First of all, such software reduces the amount of time it takes to plan routes. In addition to figuring out directions, to plan a route you must account for traffic, construction, weather, customer availability, and many other factors. That can take a lot of time. Depending on the number of stops you need to make, it can take hours.
By using a route planner, you can cut route planning time from hours down to seconds. Route optimization software accounts for all the factors involved with route planning for you. You just need to tell it which addresses you want to visit. After you do that, your optimized route will be ready in less than 30 seconds.
Optimized routes will save time for your field employees, too. Routes you plan by hand will likely have some mistakes, and mistakes lead to delays that slow down your field employees and upset your customers.
Routes created with route optimization software don’t have mistakes. They give your field employees everything they need to arrive on time, every time. Optimized routes improve efficiency so much that you’ll be able to increase your revenue by adding more stops to each route. In other words, you can serve more customers without hiring more employees. That’s great news for your bottom line.
