What is Route Optimisation Software?
Over the past two years, the popularity of e-commerce has risen incrementally in Australia, with 73.1% more purchases made online in 2021 compared with 2019. This rise in popularity has meant that more and more businesses are modernising their business and joining others online.
The shift to online shopping has caused many Australian companies to rely on delivery services such as Australia Post. Or they have hired delivery drivers and begun delivering packages themselves.
Often the planning that goes into working out the number of deliveries that need to be made, to where and by which delivery drivers can be a costly and time-consuming process that can be better optimised by route optimisation software. Route optimisation software helps businesses maximise their deliveries by assessing the many variables such as driver schedules, fuel costs, total stops and fulfilment times.
So, who is route optimisation for?
Route optimisation software isn’t just for large businesses or retail empires. Software, such as Journey PRO, can be used by any company, no matter the size, that wants to increase its efficiency while being cost-effective.
The software aims to streamline your business’s functionality and identify any issues before they arise to improve the overall efficiency of your business and enhance the customer experience.
If you are a small business that is just starting out and only has a few deliveries a day, then potentially, you don’t need route optimisation software, as manual planning may be just as effective. However, if you are a business that has begun to scale up its operations and is noticing increases in time spent planning your delivery route, an increase in fuel and driver costs or are having an increase in customer questions concerning the status of their delivery. Route optimisation software may be for you.
RIGA’s Journey PRO is designed to be customisable to your business’s specific needs, whether 20 deliveries or 200 deliveries. Journey PRO merges all your operations into one place and allows you to manage your workflow within a central location.
Journey PRO can help you:
- With end-to-end job management
- Provide built-in route optimisation and delivery grouping
- Manage multiple scenarios & action on-demand delivery requests
- Minimise paper handling and lost paperwork
