Route4Me, Inc., a Dynamic Route Optimization™ platform that uses big data, data science, and machine learning to optimize multi-driver/multi-destination routes, announced the availability of Route4Me on the Geotab Marketplace, a go-to source for organizations requiring an open IoT fleet management platform.
Route4Me provides Geotab customers with dynamic route sequencing and optimization software integrated with Geotab’s real-time vehicle tracking platform.
Key features of the Route4Me and Geotab platform integration are:
• Mobile App - companies can send routes directly from Route4Me to the driver’s Route4Me mobile app and benefit from proof-of-delivery, signature capture, and voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation.
• High-Speed Real-Time Dynamic Route Optimization, which automatically creates multi-driver, multi-depot routes, accounting for variables such as predictive traffic, predictive weather, dynamic orders, dynamic dispatch, recurring routes, multiple customer time windows, volumetric and capacitated planning, and load sequencing.
• Interactive Customer Alerting and Portal – end-users can see the location of an inbound Geotab-enabled vehicle on their smartphone, as well as receive alerts by SMS, Email, and Voice call notifying them of inbound or scheduled driver visits, while interacting with the system to cancel or delay visits without human intervention.
• Visualize and Analyze Route Performance – Route4Me uses Geotab vehicle tracking data to reveal on a map, in real-time, how vehicles and drivers actually drive their routes compared to how the optimized routes were planned. Route deviations, late arrivals, time window violations, and other alerts are tracked, displayed, and trended using dashboards and reports.
The Geotab Marketplace complements the MyGeotab platform that provides customers with an extensive ecosystem of valuable business-focused applications and add-ons. Utilized by companies with fleets large and small, the Marketplace offers key applications to more than 14,000 Geotab customers and is reportedly on track to feature over 200 third-party applications by the end of the year, further solidifying the company’s leadership in commercial telematics.
