Fleetmatics Routing Optimization Solution

Fleetmatics Group PLC has introduced Fleetmatics Routist, an intelligent routing optimization solution that systematically builds the most cost-effective, customer-friendly routes for fleets. Fleetmatics Routist seamlessly calculates and deploys route plans to drivers in the field. It also features real-time and historical data that gives users the most holistic view into routing performance.

Fleetmatics Routist operates by taking locations, vehicles, time windows, technician skills, costs and capacities into consideration, among other inputs, while remaining simple and intuitive for customers to use. The solution also incorporates historical traffic data into its algorithm, elevating traffic and routing optimization effectiveness for customers operating in metropolitan areas.

Fleetmatics Routist’s robust feature set, offered to customers as an add-on module, will integrate into the Fleetmatics REVEAL fleet management solution. Customers can easily import work orders from electronic files or integrate with their order management software, select the drivers involved in the plan and quickly get a cost-efficient and customer-satisfying route. Route planners can easily make adjustments to the plan and then deploy to the field.

Once routes are live, dispatchers and managers stay current on a driver’s progress on the Fleetmatics REVEAL live map and can make real-time adjustments as needed. When the day is done, actual-versus-plan analysis is available to compare the stops made by drivers against the work orders provided.
