Insert Orders from the Orders List into Planned Routes

Inserting an order into a planned multi stop route allows you to add one or multiple stops with predefined data into different already planned and optimized routes without having to re-plan a route from scratch. With Route4Me route optimization software, you can add existing customer orders to planned routes in two different ways: from the Orders List and the Route Editor.
