Manage Your Business
From Your Phone

As a modern-day entrepreneur and business leader, you don’t spend all your time in an office. You often need to go out on the road.

Of course, while you’re out, you still must manage your employees, vendors, and subcontractors. The Route4Me mobile app allows you to optimize routes, map, assign, dispatch, navigate and keep track of your team from wherever you happen to be.

Route4Me available on over 2.6 billion devices globally

Last-Minute Change? No Problem

No matter how much planning you put into a route, there’s always a chance that something unexpected will happen and mess it all up. Customers, weather, vendor payment delays, natural disasters, highway collapses - you name it!

For example, what if a customer calls you to cancel at the last minute, but your driver has already left to complete their route for the day? Do you want to send your person out of their way to visit somewhere he shouldn’t go?

Without easy-to-use and automated software, routing and dispatch can become very complicated. Removing just one stop can really change how a route looks.

Nowadays things happen so rapidly that it can be difficult to communicate these changes quickly enough to your team out in the field. They would probably end up trying to figure out new directions on their own, which can lead to delays, or distractions that may lead to dangerous and costly accidents. You and your customers certainly won’t like that!

With the Route4Me mobile app, any change you make to a route will be immediately shared with the user assigned to that route. You’re both accessing the same information at the same time. They’ll know exactly what to do.


Optimized Routes on an Android Smartphone

Users See Only What You Want Them To See

You don’t want to burden your mobile workforce with too much information. If you assign a route to someone a week in advance, that gives them plenty of time to forget about all the important details of the route, or to see something before you want to show it to them.

Route4Me lets you control when users see their assignments. You can create your routes whenever you find a convenient time, then set a schedule when users can see these routes.


Voice-Guided Navigation

Any app that provides drivers with turn-by-turn directions will help them get through their route, but if the app must be operated manually, it will not only take time for the driver to fiddle with the controls but it will also be a very hazardous driving distraction.

Our Android app saves your workforce time, becauses it uses voice-guided navigation to direct users to their stops. Your user won’t need to press any additional buttons to receive their driving directions. This works with large vehicles and commercial truck driving directions too.

As a simple example, if your workforce has 10 people, doing 10 stops per day, then estimate 10 seconds per stop per driver per day, and you're talking about saving 250,000 seconds a year. Now when they visit an extra stop per day it’s practically for free.

The efficiency boost from this feature may be small for one route, but think about how many routes your users complete over the course of a week or a month. Saving a little bit of time during each route adds up to a lot of extra productivity in the long run.





GPS Tracking

One of the biggest challenges of managing a mobile workforce is making sure your employees are actually working when they’re supposed to be working. When they’re not being watched, drivers might take unsanctioned breaks or run personal errands while they’re on the clock.

That’s why you need to watch them, and with Route4Me’s mobile app, you can. Our app turns the mobile devices used by your drivers into homing beacons. You can see where they are and how fast they’re going in real-time.

The problem with most tracking apps, though, is that if the user loses their internet connection at any point, you won’t be able to see where they were during that period.

But that’s not the case with our Android app. When the connection is lost, it stores the driver’s location data on their smartphone device, and then sends it back to you whenever the connection is reestablished. You’ll never miss a beat.

The Route4Me mobile app will soon be available on smartwatches. This will give you even more insight into what your team members are doing - even if someone steps out of their car and leaves their phone in the cab, you’ll know where they went.

Our upcoming smartwatch app will be particularly useful if you require your drivers to make regular walk-around inspections of their vehicles, if you want to monitor fatigue at a specific customer location, and much more.




Geofencing

Customers can be difficult. Sometimes, they might refuse to pay you unless you can absolutely prove that your employee stopped by.

The Route4Me mobile app makes it easy to provide such proof. Our geofencing feature automatically creates a virtual perimeter around each of your stops that will automatically record your driver’s visit. You can customize the size and shape of your geofences and the amount of time your employee needs to stay inside them for it to count as a visit and departure.

Geofences also help you keep track of your drivers, and can send a notification to a customer whenever your driver approaches a customer’s geofence.

Also, your mobile workforce can use the Route4Me mobile app to upload images, videos, and sound recordings that provide further proof of their progress. If there is no internet connectivity, it’s not a problem. The data is automatically sent to our cloud once the employee’s connection is strong enough.




Night Mode

A dispatched route on an android tablet.

According to the National Safety Council, the risk of a fatal car crash is 300% greater at night. Driving at night becomes increasingly dangerous, when a driver is using a smartphone. The brightness of a smartphone screen will compromise the driver’s eyes and make it harder for them to see the road. According to the NSC, a 50-year-old driver may need twice as much light to see as well as a 30-year-old.

Turning on Route4Me’s night mode activates a dark version of our app, so your drivers can use our app without sacrificing their safety and the safety of others, no matter how dark it is outside.



Left-Hand Mode for 10% of the World’s Population

Trying to use an app that was designed for right-handed users is often cumbersome for left-handed people.

The Route4Me mobile app has a unique left-hand mode feature. When enabled, lefties are just as productive using our software as anyone else. We’re always looking for ways to make your business more productive and efficient.





Offline Mode

Most of our competitors' apps were designed to be used in major cities where people have full cellular signal at all times.

But our customers know that having 100% signal strength all the time is unrealistic, and out in the rest of the world, they’ve done it all: like routing to a pothole on a county road with no street names; picking up an empty bin/container/portable toilet in an alley, or using GPS coordinates to route to well out in a field.

Route4Me’s mobile app can work 100% completely offline. From the moment the route is downloaded to your driver’s device, it can be visited, routed, navigated with no internet connection at all. Attached notes, signatures, pictures, and chat messages are automatically sent to our system when cellular signal strength improves.
