Routing and Scheduling Optimization, made easy.
For Transport and Field Service Managers. Online.
After Defining your Drivers, selecting Drivers and Orders to serve and Optimizing your Routes, you are ready for performance!
Right under Add Orders, three buttons give you different options for exporting and sharing your optimized Routes.
Choose the option that better suits your needs:
Print Directions: All Routes, map or directions, or one Route at a time.
Export Routes: Excel/CSV, files for GPS devices, Route Links.
Send Routes Via Email:Route links and files for GPS devices.
By clicking this button you can visualize and print route directions and a map. You can decide to print only a map by choosing “Map” (one route at a time or all routes at once), or the “Directions” (one route at a time or all routes at once).
When printing directions, by ticking/unticking the options at the top of the generated page, you can include/exclude map/turn-by-turn directions/step details/custom fields.
By clicking the button Export Routes you can download Routes in several different formats:
An Excel or CSV file that lists all the Scheduled Orders, complete with information about the Drivers who will serve them, Scheduled Times, Total Driving Times, etc.
The option Export as GPS files allows you to download files ready to be uploaded to GPS devices. Please note that here you can choose directly the format you prefer (.itn, .gpx), regardless of the file type you set for your drivers (see How to set your driver’s details).
Export Route Links: download at once all the Route Links your Drivers will receive via email.
With the Viamente Route Planner you can send via email the optimized routes to all drivers with one click.
They will receive a link with online maps and turn-by-turn driving directions, along with every other piece of information relevant to the orders scheduled for each of them.
The Route description includes:
A map with a route overview (satellite, map, hybrid, terrain)
The ordered and scheduled sequence of orders
All the order fields you imported (such as addresses, name, time windows, load requests, etc.)
Any custom field (such as invoice or order number)
The estimated times of arrival at each order
The time drivers will depart from orders after service
The starting time and duration of a driver’s lunch break
The turn-by-turn driving directions
Regardless of what device your Drivers use (TomTom, Garmin, Navigon), along with the Route Link you can send files which can be easily uploaded to their GPS device. Read here how to do it.
Today Internet is mobile and your Drivers can tap on their iPhone, Android, iPad or Blackberry devices the Route Link they receive via email. The Viamente Routing Optimization software is cloud based and allows you to open Route Plans directly on your Driver’s smartphone.
