OnTerra Systems, Denver, a developer of software packages, has introduced new features to its RouteSavvy route planner software package. The new features optimize multiple routes for fleets. The features streamline the process of optimizing routes for multiple vehicles down to a simple, three-step process.
OnTerra Systems says its “Cluster Into New Folders” function allows fleet managers to take a folder of planned locations and automatically organize the locations into smaller groups by geographic location. This allows the user to plan stops all in the same area to be optimized for the most efficient route to minimize drive time and distance, saving time, labor and fuel costs.
A second feature of the software is Multiple Routes, which allows users to create, store and visualize multiple routes, each depicted in a different color, on the same map. By using different colors, fleet and operations managers can visually review multiple routes, identify locations that could be more efficiently grouped into another route and re-assign specific stops or delivery locations to a more appropriate route to increase efficiency.
The third enhancement is a Change Stop Order feature, which allows users to move a stop from one position to another without using up/down arrows. According to OnTerra, the feature is useful for larger routes.
All three of these new functions offered by RouteSavvy are designed to streamline the route planning process for businesses and organizations with multiple vehicles. RouteSavvy’s new multi-route functions will streamline and speed up the process of planning and optimizing routes, saving time.
“The new multi-route functions are significant enhancements to RouteSavvy that will help our customers optimize routes more quickly and efficiently,” says Steve Milroy, OnTerra Systems’ president and founder. “In addition, these significant enhancements to the RouteSavvy route planner tool underscore our ongoing commitment to RouteSavvy and our customer’s success.”
