"More affordable and functional than the rest."

What do you like best?

Importing .csv and routing multiple drivers within minutes.

What do you dislike?

Multi-select polygon tool functionality does not work as expected (draw over stops, assign all to driver 2, stops get assigned to driver 2)

Instead it works like: draw over stops, assign to driver 2, stops become unassigned, need to hit plan routes and make sure no other driver is selected.

It took a bit of experimenting to learn how to use this function while everything else was very easy to learn at a glance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software will cut down on labor hours considerably thanks to .csv importing and adhering to your specific needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've had issues with our client sending the list of stops at the end of the night requiring planners to accumulate overtime as manual routing took up to 4 hours.

We have tried other Applications but each one was missing one of the following key functions:

-Importing, rather than manual typing everything.

-Multiple drivers / routes on one screen

-Ablility to route based on time window / priority, most only use distance based routing.

It would seem that routing based on time windows would be an absolute necessary function of any routing software, but this is not the case.

Exploring OptimoRoute, we have found that the projected ETAs have helped train new dispatchers on estimating ETAs for clients more than two stops ahead on a route.

We also are able to show our bosses how unrealistic it is to expect less drivers with more stops with hard data and re-rolling routes with different routing methods (by time or by # of orders).

"Efficient planning and complex problem solving"

What do you like best?

One of our favourite Optimoroute features is that it can let our clients know the live tracking of our delivery team. Moreover, the assignation of routes is very efficient and logical.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes we have to manually select some clients from some routes to reassign them into other routes to avoid long idle times during the shifts. Some time frames will have drivers waiting for almost 1 hour or 2 hours instead of optimizing right away and assigning those people from a non busy time frame to busier routes to complete them and leave the non efficient time frame for one driver blank so the driver can finish the shift in one time frame before.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a small business and have a fleet of 3-8 cars I would recommend you giving a try to this software to save you time and money in route planning and also improve customer and employee satisfaction with timely deliveries, accurate information and ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication communication and communication. Our clients love knowing the status of their deliveries. Having email tracking is a great feature for our company because it helps us let our clients know everything about their deliveries. It would be lovely if Optimoroute could adapt some of the UBER interface and allow the admins of the corporate optimoroute accounts customize how the clients will see the status of their delivery. For example, posting pictures of the van that is doing the delivery, the name of the driver, the phone number of the driver so it can be a more special and personal experience.

What Route Planning solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Incredibly optimized algorithm"

What do you like best?

Incredibly optimized algorithm for large routs with many drivers. It is possible to add many different types of constraints so the optimized route reflects our delivery scenario properly.

One of the best features is the OptimoRoute app. We can track our drivers in real time and see how they are performing. With OptimoRoute's API it is also possible to connect our system with their's that enables us to create a better user experience for our customers.

New features are being added regularly which is very important for our market that is very competitive and technical. This product give us a much needed edge.

What do you dislike?

Everything that we disliked in the beginning has been fixed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If the geo-location is not perfect for you country they can switch to other internal systems that might work better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Each driver has a lot of stops in his routs that needs to be delivered very efficiently to lower costs. OptimoRoute makes that possible.

"EASY AND CONVENIENT TO USE"

What do you like best?

As a small company owner I've been saving miles, gas and the most important saving, my own time!!!

I can plan 8 routes in 3 difference cities in less than 12 min, I used to spent 2 hours doing manually.

What do you dislike?

What I don't like is some features like proof of delivery, shipping label printed are still missing in the platform.

Also if you have warehouses in differences cities you need to open one account per city.

"Very good for my business needs, but I've never used another competing program."

What do you like best?

Altering the duration of a scheduled stop to keep our routes accurate. Having our hyperlinks right there in our drivers' e-mail. Viewing the timeline at any point in the day to see where a driver should be right now.

What do you dislike?

One feature I could really use is to search an address and find out exactly if and when we were ever at that address before. Also, I do not know exactly what my company owner pays for this program, but I understand that it is expensive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to not give clients a time window, just a day that we would arrive. Obviously, the ability to use a time window has allowed us to cooperate with clients who need that.

"Great service with very helpful support creating rep routes and analysis thereof."

What do you like best?

The app is user friendly and functional with improvements being done on a very regular basis. There is alot of functionality which provides a holistic and detailed view of time, distance and travelling patterns within

the preset parameters.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if the route sharing was automated rather than having to log in every morning to share routes to the drivers apps.

Having a built in database, which considers drivers trends to specific locations when planning routes and allows for flexibility within a week. (seeing Tuesday's clients on Monday)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to "track" sales staff in the field and identify key areas where we are either over/ under utilizing resources. We have identified overlapping service areas as well as clients in outerlying areas which can be serviced by telesales rather than a physical rep call.

"Works great, support is great, APIs are great"

What do you like best?

The interfce to manage orders, routes and drivers is very easy to use and fast. We use the APIs to push and pull orders in to our system after Optimo does a great job routing. The work flow is great for us.

What do you dislike?

We would like to get a few more features exposed in the API. Weekly routing and multipel time windows.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a solution to scheduling our work crews and order drop-offs and tried other Routing SAS providers. One of the others had buggy software and un-reliable routing algorithm and the other didn't have the APIs we needed. We now have reliable routes and great work-flow which allows us to optimize our crews and keep the management time to a minimum.

"Optimoroute simplifies our logistics planning processes"

What do you like best?

We manage a fleet of trucks across multiple systems and engaged with a number of companies over a 6 month period to find a route optimisation that suits our needs. Optimoroute provided an excellent quality solution with rich API support that allowed us to integrate seamlessly into our operations. This is backed up by a team that has given us outstanding after-sales support. I'd also have to say that the ability to strike a balance between producing a fleet-optimal route and one that spreads fair workload across our drivers is fairly key to the success of adopting the platform and is a popular feature with our team.

What do you dislike?

The actual route planning each day is conducted by our dispatch managers who are drivers by trade. I'd love to see more work put into the web interface, specifically the ability to visually manipulate the output of the optimiser by drag-and-drop. This doesn't prevent us from benefiting from Optimoroute, but it would allow us to integrate our operations more tightly with their platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great solution, especially if you need to model special fleet features or multiple capacities (i.e. volume + weight + other limits simultaneously).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're solving a fairly complex model for delivery and pickup of equipment across a fleet of trucks over multiple cities. We've gained the ability to get from a standing start to an 80% solution for our scheduling much more quickly each day, and in testing we're typically making daily savings in the order of hundreds of kilometers traveled and hours worked (both out on the road, and back in the office planning)

"Who doesn't want to get more work done without working any more hours in a day?"

What do you like best?

The software engineers at OptimoRoute take their time to listen to what each company is trying to achieve, then they go back and re-write their software so that you can get it done in the most cost effective way.

What do you dislike?

Nothing! Every suggestion to make the software work better for our company has been taken, worked into the software, and pushed back out to us with minimal turnaround time. All you have to do is ask!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it! Who doesn't want to make more money every day by getting more work done and not working a single minute more than you are right now?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have customers in five different states and 20 service technicians. OptimoRoutes allows us to have our drivers get more work done in less time by maximizing the orders and routing. Customers are able to get a two hour window of our arrival, and on average every technician is getting to one more job a day and not working a minute more than they were before. As a company, this translates to 20 more jobs a day being done in the same amount of payroll hours.

"Optimo Route saves time and money."

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a gps option that I could attach to my vehicle not to a mobile device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to save time and money this is a must.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saves time routing jobs, saves gasoline, keeps jobs with time schedules more on time.

"OptimoRoute has aided our business with the ability to manage our fleet of vehicles and overtime "

What do you like best?

The fact that we can easily plan our fleet of 5 trucks daily workload and the system provides us with the most efficient route each truck should take along with giving us an idea of how long the workload of each truck should take. This assists us with manage employee fatigue and overtime

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the system doesn't identify the correct site and even select a site in another country.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better understanding of our productivity, provides the most efficient route for our fleet of trucks, enables us to provide a run sheet for each truck the day in advance and shares the workload. Gives is the understanding of when overtime may be required and monitor the need for overtime.

"Leaves Streets and Maps in the dust"

What do you like best?

Does the grunt work of sorting routes in a fast, efficient, and visually pleasing way. App is being continually improved. Affordable.

What do you dislike?

Time distance between stops is often inaccurate - a distance that could be reasonably covered in 10 minutes is sometimes calculated as 30+ minutes. Driver stop balancing is useless for what they consider short routes (50-100 stops).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to test and compare. Try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Can sort routes quickly and effectively. Saves time, saves fuel, saves money.
