OnTerra Systems introduces new route planning software

OnTerra Systems introduced RouteSavvy 1.5—a new version of its web-based route planning software for small and mid-sized business fleets and business professionals.

According to the software company, RouteSavvy is based on “advanced route optimization algorithms” from OnTerra and Bing Maps’ web-mapping technology.

RouteSavvy 1.5 offers more functionality at no additional cost, and it also incorporates more features from MapPoint, making it even easier to transition from MapPoint and Streets & Trips software to RouteSavvy, the company said.

Per OnTerra, RouteSavvy 1.5 features the following new functions:

  • Additional shapes for defining, creating, and querying territories: Polygon shapes are now available in addition to circles and rectangles, plus users now can add, edit, query and save data captured within defined areas of these shapes. This updated functionality allows for better manipulation of data, as well as visualization of areas and territories.
  • Show notes function: When clicking on a customer location on the map or defined area on the map, personal and business notes about the customer will appear. This provides additional relationship-building information available at a glance when calling on customers. These notes can now be shown in directions and data exports.
  • Move locations function: This new function allows users to change and correct an address when the address has been inputted incorrectly or if the geocoding of the address is not correct. In addition to click-and-drag functionality to more accurately position a customer location on a map, users can actually pull in an aerial image of the actual location, click on it and update their location. This is a particularly useful function when the mapping technology takes a driver to a complex but does not identify a specific building within a complex.
  • Multiple box views: This function allows users to pull up multiple customer dialog boxes. This at-a-glance look at multiple customers allows RouteSavvy users to easily compare information of multiple customers on the same screen.

RouteSavvy requires no programming skills or hardware or software installation and maintenance, OnTerra added. As a web-based route-planning tool, all that’s needed is a computer or tablet and an internet connection to start organizing and optimizing routes.
