The new Optimal Routes feature allows users to measure the effectiveness and impact of routing decisions on cost, time and distance. Users can generate theoretical route-level scenarios to compare against actual routes: Business Optimal represents the ideal route, taking into consideration customer delivery windows, order of deliveries and other service-related constraints; True Optimal represents the theoretical best sequence with no constraints. Comparing actual routes to the Optimal Route scenarios can provide insight into the decisions made by routers, as well as highlight instances in which an over-emphasis on customer service has lead to overall inefficiency.
Additionally, Roadnet Anywhere v4.4 introduces the MyStats page within the Roadnet Mobile app for iOS and Android. MyStats gives drivers a real-time view into their performance, without having to interrupt their routes. Drivers who are ahead or behind schedule can adjust their performance without having to be notified by a manager. Managers are able to control which stats the drivers have access to, including adherence to schedule, how long they have been on the route or remaining deliveries. “A key ingredient to achieving operational improvement is providing drivers with timely input and coaching in how they are performing. This capability further enhances the ability of our customers to provide such feedback to drivers,” notes Haugh.
