Out Of Sequence – Destinations Visited Out Of Route Sequence

Planning efficient routes with numerous customer addresses is an exponentially complex task. Route4Me solves this complexity and streamlines your routing operations by automatically planning routes with the most optimal sequence of destinations based on your preferences. When your field employees follow the optimized sequence of destinations on your routes, you save money, time, and effort. However, reality on the road is often less optimal. Visiting destinations out of sequence can lead to delays, wasting time and fuel, missing customer Time Windows, and other issues.

Route4Me enables you to view destinations visited out of sequence with the same tools you use to plan and track routes. You can gain insight into your route execution efficiency by tracking route compliance. Depending on your particular business need, Route4Me enables you to keep accurate records for auditing, avoiding fines, and more. On this page, you can learn how the Destinations Visited Out of Sequence function works, where you can view driver route compliance, and more.

Track driver route compliance on routes with destinations visited out of the optimized visitation sequence. Then, re-optimize your out of sequence routes to ensure compliance and optimal routing.

 

 

Destinations Visited Out Of Route Sequence – Overview

As drivers navigate routes with Route4Me’s iPhone and Android Route Planner Apps, they will arrive at customer locations. Your field employees mark destinations as “Arrived” when executing routes and arriving at addresses. When destinations are visited out of the sequence of their corresponding route, they are marked in red. Additionally, you can view Out of Sequence Destinations on the Routes List, Route Editor, Routes Map, and Mobile Route Planner App. NOTE: To enable Destinations Visited Out of Sequence on your account, contact Route4Me Support.

When destinations are visited out of the sequence of their corresponding route, they are marked in red. Additionally, you can view Out of Sequence Destinations on the Routes List, Route Editor, Routes Map, and Mobile Route Planner App.

 

By default, Out of Sequence Destinations are displayed on the Route Editor and Routes Map map view. In addition, you can enable the “Out Of Sequence Destinations” column alongside other route data. Such destinations disrupt the sequence and optimization of your routes. For your convenience, Route4Me enables you to adjust destination position in the sequence and re-optimize all route destinations or only remaining, unvisited destinations. Specifically, automatically move the visited Out of Sequence Destinations after the last destination visited according to the route’s planned sequence.

Out of Sequence Destinations are displayed on the Route Editor and Routes Map map panels and marked in red. Additionally, they are displayed on the Routes Map Time Line and in customizable route data table.
