OnTerra Systems updates RouteSavvy software

January 18, 2022 -  By

OnTerra Systems, the developers of RouteSavvy route planning software for small businesses, made significant January 2022 RouteSavvy software enhancements.

The new January 2022 version of RouteSavvy provides more features and functions for delivery management and makes RouteSavvy route planning software even faster and easier to use, according to the company.

The January 2022 RouteSavvy software enhancements include:

  • New route cloning function: Users have always been able to create new routes and edit existing routes, but RouteSavvy’s new route cloning function is a faster way to create a new route based by cloning an existing route and then making additional changes.
  • Address autopopulate function: RouteSavvy now offers a more powerful address lookup function. Users can start typing the address of a new stop, and RouteSavvy automatically will suggest address options for users to choose based on their IP address and geographic location. RouteSavvy will provide a dropdown list of nearby options that can be chosen. RouteSavvy also features points of interest, i.e., landmarks that might require deliveries, pickups, sales calls, or service calls that don’t have a specific address.
  • Enhanced route line display: RouteSavvy now can display a route on top of territories, delivery radiuses or other shapes on the map. This allows route planners to better determine if stops should be moved from one route to another because they can see whether a route is encompassed within one specific territory or if the route crosses into other territories.
  • Quick zoom function: When users add a new address into RouteSavvy for route planning, they can use a new function to zoom to that location on the map with one click.
  • Drive distance and drive time now exportable: Once RouteSavvy has generated an optimized route, that route can either be printed and given to drivers or exported to a driver’s cell phone or tablet to be synched with a turn-by-turn navigation system. As part of the route export process, drive distance and drive time data now will be exported.
  • Support For SSL: RouteSavvy is unique in that routing information is stored with the user’s browser. This preserves security because sensitive data is not stored on a central RouteSavvy nor does it travel over the internet, thus reducing the need to use SSL encryption

“The pandemic has driven a huge shift toward local home delivery of everything from groceries to alcohol, and RouteSavvy has been enhanced to provide more delivery management functionality, as well as just being even easier to use and deploy,” said Steve Milroy, president of OnTerra Systems. “Whether businesses or nonprofits are involved in deliveries, pickups, service calls or sales calls, the January 2022 version of RouteSavvy provides powerful, affordable route planning capabilities that are ideal for small and midsized businesses and provide exceptional value and return on investment.”
