RouteSavvy is a web-based, subscription-based, software-as-a-service (SAAS) route planning software. Designed specifically for the needs of small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits, RouteSavvy generates more efficient routes for deliveries, pickups, service calls, and sales calls.

Highlights of the new delivery management/service call management features in the RouteSavvy mobile app include:

With the new RouteSavvy mobile app, RouteSavvy users can send routes to the user’s mobile device for review and stop completion.

  • Mark a stop as done: This function allows delivery drivers or service technicians to formally indicate that a delivery, pick-up or service call has been made.

  • Photo capture function: The digital photo feature allows users to take digital photos that can be used to prove that a delivery has been made (a digital photo of the package left at a delivery location); view details of a completed service call; and more. Digital photos are uploaded to the RouteSavvy server for 30 days and are associated with the delivery confirmation or service call record.

RouteSavvy Mobile App Smartphone GPS Tracking Improvements

RouteSavvy first introduced innovative GPS tracking using a driver’s smartphone in 2019. RouteSavvy’s smartphone-based GPS tracking for small to medium fleets uses the driver’s mobile device (mobile phone or tablet). ) for GPS tracking, instead of expensive GPS tracking hardware that must be purchased and installed on each vehicle. OnTerra Systems’ innovative technical approach allows small and medium fleets to experience all the benefits of GPS tracking at a fraction of the cost of traditional hardware-based GPS tracking technology.

Highlights of the RouteSavvy mobile app’s enhanced GPS tracking features include the following:

  • Ability to enable and disable RouteSavvy GPS Tracking with one click: GPS tracking can be turned on when drivers or service technicians are on duty and turned off when the work day is over.

  • Battery optimization: When the vehicle is not moving, the RouteSavvy GPS tracker goes into sleep mode to save smartphone battery. When the vehicle starts moving again, RouteSavvy GPS tracking begins.

  • Fixed location: In many industries, there is often no official address associated with the place of delivery or service call. Examples include cell tower repairs, dumpster deliveries and maintenance, party rental supply deliveries (such as tables and chairs delivered to park locations), portable potty deliveries on construction sites, and more. Where delivery or service call stop locations do not have an official address, RouteSavvy can record these locations with a latitude-longitude designation. This allows for quick and efficient pickup or servicing of items delivered to locations not associated with formal addresses.

Additionally, RouteSavvy’s original GPS tracking features continue to be available as part of the new RouteSavvy mobile app with smartphone-based fleet tracking, including:

  • Real-time visualization of vehicle location from the office: Fleet managers can view the current positions of fleet vehicles in real time by tracking the driver’s mobile phone location;

  • “Breadcrumb” functionality: RouteSavvy GPS tracking via its mobile app provides vehicle location positions up to a week in the past (also known as “breadcrumbs”);

  • Location data export: Vehicle location data can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet for pattern analysis or record keeping;

  • Vs planned. Actual route comparisons: RouteSavvy’s GPS tracking allows fleet managers to compare planned routes to actual routes to improve future route planning.

  • Proof of Delivery Reports: This comes with photos and signatures captured on the mobile device.

The monthly cost for RouteSavvy route planning software starts at $39 per vehicle per month for one vehicle, with the monthly cost per vehicle decreasing as more vehicles in the fleet are added. The cost of the RouteSavvy mobile app starts at $15 per vehicle per month for one vehicle and decreases as more vehicles are added.
