The objective is to optimize routes considering constraints about drivers, vehicles, customers, deliveries and on-site services.
Communicate with your field workers and overcome easily unexpected situations. Inform your customers during the delivery or on-site service process.
Appointments are directly imported from the interface through an Excel or CSV document. It includes all the necessary information (date, place and duration). Constraints (time slot, capacity of vehicle, skills, etc.) are previously defined. Addresses are geocoded during the importation of your document.
After appointments importation on date defined, you activate the optimization. Routes are optimized to save miles, time and operating costs. You get your drivers’ schedule. Deliveries, pick-ups and on-site services which cannot be done due to unavailable resources are indicated. Once routes are optimized, users are able to adjust the planning according to their needs.
When your routes are confirmed customers receive text message or email notifications with information regarding delivery or visit and time. Upon the approach of drivers, customers are informed through another message which is directly and automatically sent from the software.
The mobile app AntsDrive is associated to the route optimization software AntsRoute. The easy-to-use Android app helps deliverymen and technicians to stay on track and drive from one site to another. Drivers send delivery or on-site service confirmation with pictures, cutomer’s signature and comment. Thanks to AntsRoute, Operations Managers have the means to cancel and reprogram an appointment.
Monitor driver activity with geofences. We use signals from workers’ phone to pinpoint their location and be aware if a driver departs from its assigned boundary. Operations Managers are able to live track driver’s progression through AntsRoute. Furthermore, they have the means to manage routes in real-time. Delivery or on-site service can be canceled or added to a route. Before each confirmation, Managers get information about the extra miles.
The route optimization software AntsRoute offers different views of indicators. This view help Managers to compare planned routes and the done ones. Furthermore, it is possible to export documents to work on different data and increase your personal indicators.
