OnTerra Systems has added a new version of its RouteSavvy route planning software for small and midsized fleets who drive to multiple destinations for their work. The software also provides an alternative to Microsoft’s MapPoint and Streets & Trips, which were discontinued on Dec. 31, 2014, the company said.
RouteSavvy is based on advanced optimization algorithms from OnTerra and Bing Maps’ Web mapping technology. It can organize and optimize routes with hundreds of stops; provides two types of optimized routes (round-trip, or start-to-finish routes); and can optimize a route in seconds.
The program is a web-based route planning tool.
“RouteSavvy is an absolute necessity for businesses, organizations, and individual professionals that want to drop their operating costs, improve profitability, and enhance customer satisfaction,” said Steve Milroy, OnTerra Systems’ president and founder. “For MapPoint and Streets & Trips users who want a route planning software tool to replace MapPoint or Streets & Trips without the pain of learning a new system, RouteSavvy provides the best of both worlds: a new software tool that’s available now, but looks, feels, and operates like MapPoint and Streets & Trips.”
RouteSavvy allows users to input multiple locations, organize locations, create efficient and optimized routes for deliveries, pick-ups, service, and sales calls, get directions, and then print or export the optimized route and directions for use by field personnel.
