Direct Route reporting gives you complete route information and statistics
on the screen or on paper.
The route planner's flexibility and comprehensive set of functions
and features allow you to produce cost-effective routes to ensure
that you are meeting your customer's requirements. Extensive user-specified
routing rules and parameters allow you to run the routes based on
your operating constraints. Most routing systems force you to conform
to their system. Direct Route allows you to change our field names
to the terminology that your company uses. The routing package has
up to ten volume fields with which you can track items such as weight,
cube, pallets, etc. You can use as many of these fields as you want
and call them something that is appropriate for your organization,
e.g. gallons, cases, linear feet, etc. We also give you additional
user-defined fields that can be used to hold other customer information
that is important to your organization.
Savings vary by industry. The numbers below are a representative sample
of the route planner's customer base.
Mileage: 7%-15% average
Hourly: 5%-10% average
Trucks: 6%-11% average
Not included in these savings is the time it currently takes a dispatcher
to create your routes . The route planner can route complex problems
in minutes not hours. A problem with 200-300 stops will on average
run in 2-3 minutes on a 300 Mhz Pentium PC. This means that one dispatcher
will route in a matter of minutes what is currently taking all day.
Create time for your dispatcher to do other important tasks.
