Today, to keep up with the intense competition delivery, businesses are bound to offer same-day delivery. Though a necessary service, this isn’t an easy service to offer. It requires the right strategy, the right team, and most importantly, the right technology to be in place. This is where the role of a route planner software comes into play.

A route planner takes care of all stages involved in same-day delivery. The software ensures perfection from planning to distribution to execution, which saves you from worrying about field service management.

Route Monitoring

Zeo Route Planner comes with a GPS tracking feature that helps you track your vehicles on the road in real-time. So, if a driver ventures off-route, you’d be notified immediately and can follow-up with them accordingly.

The route monitoring also allows you to set speed alerts that will notify you as soon as a driver crosses the speed limit. You can then communicate with them to check on their speed and avoid the possibility of a road incident. This would save you from facing potential legal issues due to road law violations.

Re-optimize routes

Apart from route planning and route monitoring, Zeo Route Planner provides you the feature of re-optimizing the routes.

For example, if a driver gets stuck on the road due to a sudden vehicle breakdown, you can still re-optimize the route immediately, ensuring that the affected delivery will still be met by re-assigning it to the driver closest to the customer. Any changes you make will be reflected in the driver’s route planner app, so you won’t have to worry about relaying new route details.

Live field operations data

Having a wealth of data at your fingertips allows you to enhance, grow, and manage your field service operations more effectively. Zeo Route Planner can help in that department as well. The software comes with a reporting and analytics feature that tracks fuel costs, total and average service times, number of stops in a day, number of completed routes, and more.

You’ll be improving the efficiency of your same-day delivery service, benefitting your business and, by extension, its customers and employees.

Allows customers to track their delivery

A route planner also helps your customers track their delivery. For example, Zeo Route Planner comes with a customer portal that allows customers to see their package’s status. The customer portal shows them as much information as you want to reveal to them about the visit, for example, custom fields, driver identity, estimated arrival times, and much more.

Using the Zeo Route Planner, a customer gets a link through SMS, and through that link, they can track their package. Also, along with it, they get the drivers’ contact details so that they can contact the drivers if they are not available to take the package.

Automating driver check-ins and check-outs

A route planner also helps you make fast deliveries by cutting the time drivers spend manually checking in and out. Zeo Route Planner comes with geofencing technology that handles this automatically at each stop. It also improves drivers’ safety; they won’t need to look at their phones, as is common practice when checking in manually.
