TMW FinalMile solution adds POI feature

Learn about TMW adding a new POI feature to its TMW FinalMile DRTrack solution.

TMW, a Trimble brand and provider of software, business intelligence and related solutions, announced a new feature for its TMW FinalMile DRTrack solution.

The new Points of Interest (POI) feature enables users to identify and save physical locations not associated with an address on a map as POIs. This is achieved in a manner similar to the use of a regular address when assigning and routing orders in DRTrack, a fleet tracking and reporting tool that works with DirectRoute.

This new feature is designed to be a notable time-saver for people who need to manually geocode orders. With POI, users will be able to easily add locations when addresses are not available yet, such as a home in a new construction neighborhood. POI is also useful when directions are given instead of an address, such as “the destination is 2.3 miles past White Rock Road on Route 5.”

Brian Larwig, vice-president and general manager of TMW FinalMile, said, “The application enables dispatchers to drop a pin on a map, and that location will be saved as a point of interest for future routing and deliveries to that new location.”

New capabilities of the POI feature allow users to:

•Update the coordinates for multiple unloaded orders at the same time

•Drag and drop a pin on a map to save a new location

•Use longitude and latitude to fine-tune a location

•Assign POIs to unloaded orders from anywhere in DRTrack

 •Give a unique name to each POI and save it in a library for reuse and refinement

“Points of Interest can be accessed from several pages within DRTrack,” said Larwig. “It was designed with ease of use in mind, and I think it will definitely make the job easier for dispatchers and drivers.”
