Route4Me Software


 

Route4Me is a cloud-based fleet management solution designed for small, midsize and large businesses. Primary features include route planning and routing guides.

Users can plan routes to fit daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal or on-demand schedules. Routes can be round trip, round trip with set time restrictions or designed to end anywhere. Route4Me includes a “command center,” where users can see an overview of their entire company. Drivers and vehicles can be reassigned to different routes and drivers can make notes.

Pros

Really like they way that Route4Me is setup. We used the software for our waste collection business and enjoyed the amount of levers that could be used to fine tune and improve the routes. Their sales staff were extremely helpful in demoing the platform and their trial period was great to try out our need specifically.

Cons

Unfortunately, we needed something a little more simpler. Our needs specifically surrounded requiring each vehicle to have a unique departure and termination address. Route4Me offered the services of their in house development team, but we ended up finding another solution to meet our needs.

Only being able to organize a route into the shortest time period, which I generally end up transcribing a destination into Google Maps because the program sends me to a nag screen urging upgrade. I need to work. Not fiddling around with software issues.

Pros

The only pro I can find is that it arranges destinations in shortest order of travel.
It looks like a nice interface.
It seems to have potential to be a fine software.

Cons

It goes through to a nag screen to upgrade every time I hit the navigate button. I'm not going to upgrade. I can't wait to end my relationship with this company ASAP. It doesn't save routes. It doesn't get rid of a stop once completed. I'm moving back to Road Warrior. It has a few issues, but at least it does the job. And for 80 bucks a year, it should do the job.

Lines up your stops so you aren't wasting time traveling in circles. Other than that, I really have anything positive to say about the application.

Cons

Upgraded once for the upgrade. It keeps asking me if I want to upgrade to professional. You would think I should already have the professional version.

seeing all the addresses at least (pin-dotted) on a map so I could personally optimize them.... if Google hadn't went to less than 10 addresses I'd rather stay up all night doing it 1 way then have to continue to redo or tweek every detail to make sure you don't lose money or time chasing your errors.

Pros

can input more than a 100 addresses in one setting (but if you don't save and it refreshes or times out...... back to the start you'll go)

Cons

after entering 100s of address you'd better save as you go or it will "time out" and you'll lose your mind with the time wasted.
also by doing above you then have to merge multiple list which can be hard to figure out
sadly it doesn't let me ( or if customer service would ever answer or get back) figure out how to plan the route in closest to further addresses. Currently it has my #3 spot a 1/4 mile from my 201st stop..... def not an optimized approach to saving gas

Shorter driving distance and that saves me times.

Pros

Saves me time because it routes me the best driving distance and easy at the end of the years book keeping of my expenses.

Cons

When I'm driving to go to the next stop and it only give me the Walking directions :-(

It easily cuts my planning in half. I am a Realtor and time management is key in my life. I can simply plug in my destinations, hit optimize to give me the best route, then look at the map to see how far my destinations are from one another to know how much travel time I need to plan in between locations. LOVE IT!

Cons

I wish it could calculate the time in between locations by minutes at an easy glance. However I'm not complaining! It has much more pros then cons!

The benefits are perfect for a person in the sales industry who has to make cold calls and wants to be the most proficient as possible. The software just needs to add another pricing method. Maybe charge on a single use basis?

Pros

Optimization of travel is beneficial for travel and work. Allows me to see the most possible prospects the least amount of time.

Cons

Do not use it often enough for the cost. I find the program to be extremely helpful. However, with my work I do not need a full subscription. I only use the program/software 1 time a month at the most.

Freed up the daily, mundane grind of taking my established client base and "working in" client one-off's. It also allows me to better track driver productivity to see if either they aren't actually as busy as reported or over worked in which I can make the business decision to bring on another driver either full-time or over flow.

Pros

Very easy to upload my client base and fins the best order of my service stops. It actually showed my "unbalanced" routes and where I could improve in scheduling as well as showed me a lapse in driver reported mileage and excess time per stop.

Cons

Some functionality for back-end processes like auto invoicing as well as automatic dispatching were still easier to do by hand.

CAN SET MY ETA'S ON ROUTE FOLLOWING CALCULATED STOPS

Pros

Easy to use and accurate. Sets up route easily and easy to follow. You can delete stops after you have arrived there.
Great for parcel couriers like myself

Cons

You are supposed to get 10 free routes per month. I am a Hermes courier and was half way through my route today and it cut off saying I had used my 10 free routes this month and tried getting me to pay for a subscription. I have only ever used 3, 2 this month and one last month so you are being conned beware!

The benefits that I'm not tech savvy and this was SOOOO darn easy for me to use!!! That is why I LOVE it!!!

Pros

SOOOOOO easy for this older lady with no patience!!! Not too many apps optimize a list. I don't have patience and your app was soooo easy!!! I used my voice texting service....read off what I needed and added all of my properties in and in less than 5 min.....my lists was optimized and I'm going to relax now!!! No need to mapquest 19 addresses out!!! You did it ALL for me in less than 5 min! I can't believe that!!! I just hope that it doesn't use up my battery.....I will keep it on the charger in the car while driving!!!

The software allows us to utilize our time most efficiently.

Pros

The software has different ways of viewing the route, whether it be map or list. Rerouting is simple as well. The ultimate best part is being able to enter multiple locations.

Cons

I honestly cannot say that there is anything I like least about this. As time moves forward, I'm confident we'll be using it often.

Easy baby easy I use it for setting up my run list daily and not always in the same area. I cover the entire county some 5 or 600 square miles or more. It sets me up so I don't waste my time getting from 1 stop to the next.

Cons

Uuum let me get back to you on this. I would say the software needs to recognize the area your in so I don't have a stop in Rome or France when I'm in So Cal. That kinda messes everything up. Program the softwares for the state your in not the state of confusion.
