Routing solution utilizes online mapping technology

Posted on August 28, 2012

OnTerra has introduced RouteSavvy Online Basic, a route optimization tool for small fleets.

RouteSavvy Online is based on advanced optimization algorithms that leverage Bing Maps web mapping technology. Users can input their destinations into RouteSavvy in three ways: by uploading a spreadsheet with addresses, clicking on locations in the displayed map (which defaults to a user's home or business area) or manually entering addresses in an input box in the RouteSavvy web map applications.

Once the addresses are entered, users also can choose whether they need a round trip or a variety of one-way routes.

RouteSavvy can optimize from a few to up to hundreds of stops. Users also can specify whether the route should be optimized for distance, time or time adjusted for traffic.

The solution also features a built-in scheduling tool, an easy-to-use interface and XLSX or CSV import. Routes can be exported to Garmin navigation devices.
