After successful testing with a number of its customers, Roadnet Technologies is making its Geotuning solution available to the general public.
Geotuning captures large pools of street addresses, geocodes them and systemically refines the geocodes using both automatic and manual methodology, Roadnet said. This process leads to improvements in operational efficiency, while also reducing fuel expenses and carbon emissions.
According to Roadnet, users can expand the arrival/departure zone at each delivery and service location, relieving responsibilities on drivers and mobile workers, therefore improving both accuracy and productivity.
“The system goes beyond the street address to identify the location of the specific loading dock or door the driver will use and takes into account that not all addresses are accurate or updated,” said Len Kennedy, CEO. “This new Geotuning system is productivity-advancing, cost-reducing, and service-improving technology for the fleet management and route delivery industries.”
Geotuning is composed of multiple tools used to arrive at its data determination. The first is a “next-generation geocoder” which is comprised of an automatic system that identifies exactly where the product is scheduled to be delivered, or the service to be performed. The second analyzes geocodes for both cancelled stops and completed stops within a user-configurable distance.
The third component enables the user to review stops relative to locations and GPS pings to fine-tune the geocode or arrival/departure radius, which is also completely configurable.
