Reduce, Recycle, Route Optimize and Reuse
Every recycling company should be using route optimization software. Such software allows you to save time, reduce your expenses, and improve field employee productivity.
Planning routes manually can take hours, but with route planning software, it takes less than a minute. Route planning software provides you with more efficient routes as well, so your field employees won’t need to use as much time and fuel to visit all their stops.
Route4Me also has other features. For example, our route planner gives you the ability to use GPS tracking to see where your field employees are and how fast they’re going in real-time.
One of the biggest challenges to managing field employees is that, most of the time, you don’t really know what they’re doing. They might be working hard and staying on schedule, or they might be slacking off and taking personal breaks on company time. You can’t see them, so how do you know?
GPS tracking is how. You can use it to make sure your field employees are doing what you want them to do.
The great thing about tracking data is that you don’t even need to look at it for it to improve productivity. Employees are always more productive when they know they’re being supervised. GPS tracking prevents them from escaping your supervision, even when they’re on the road and out of sight.
