Geotab introduces routing and dispatching solution

The tool can use data such as requested arrival windows, traffic data and available fleet resources to plan optimal routes.

Geotab Inc. announced the launch of its Routing and Optimization solution at Geotab Connect in Las Vegas. According to the company, fleet managers can use this solution to isolate the most efficient route based on data insights, including customer needs, like requested arrival windows, traffic data and available fleet resources.

“Geotab’s Routing and Optimization tool is redefining how fleet managers tackle their day-to-day operations to drive efficiency and ultimately increase customer satisfaction,” said Sabina Martin, vice president of product management at Geotab. “Utilizing Geotab’s data intelligence, our latest technology ensures that the right resources are dispatched to the right locations at optimal times. With greater efficiency from the solution, we believe businesses could save millions of dollars annually.”

Geotab noted that the routing and optimization solution is designed to be scalable over time. Today, the solution has various modules to meet the unique needs of different fleet segments.

Here is how it works, according to Geotab: Fleets can utilize route optimization, which mathematically weighs business priorities when routing, considering continuity of care, timelines and distance traveled. For longer trips, the long-range planning application aids in minimizing driving time, and the territory planning application enables users to visualize their service areas and manage resource allocation to prevent route overlap.

The solution also includes an appointment application for scheduling, dispatch and real-time notification, and a status interface for direct communication with customers.
