OnRoute takes into account several key elements when optimizing your week schedules. It assigns orders to your mobile workforce, managing the complexity of your multi-frequent visits while minimizing the total drivetime. A non-exhaustive list of such elements is given below:
- Specific technical requirements that match an order to (a part of) your fleet or operators
- Time windows and working hour restrictions
- Frequency of visits: visited each month/ week/ no more than .. weeks in between
- Already communicated deadlines/appointments for your customers
- Geographically dispersed operators/inspectors/workers
- Orders performed by multiple operators at the same time
The workload of your employees is characterized by frequent or cyclical visits, fixed assignments, priority relationships and predetermined appointments or deadlines. Get the most out of your workforce by scheduling them weeks in advance.
Save on the time spent planning
Producing weekly schedules for a mobile workforce can be very difficult: it requires ad-hoc orders to be planned alongside fixed orders and cyclic appointments. Optimization cuts back the time spent planning drastically. Integrating our OnRoute API will allow for your customer's operational planners to focus on the most important matters.
Manage the complexity of hundred to thousands of stops
Scheduling is typically complex to manage: time windows for specific customers, special goods that require refrigeration, or certain visits that need a certified driver to visit. All of these specific rules to follow can be integrated seamlessly into your application.
Reduce operational expenses
By optimizing your daily schedules, you can help your customers reduce operational costs by up to 35%. This allows resources to be used in the most efficient way: maximize the customers served and minimize overall costs. As a result, they can get more work done with fewer resources, save on fuel costs and reduce carbon emissions.
