Route planning systems play an essential role in optimizing fleet management, in-field sales operations, and last mile delivery services. To reduce transportation costs, automate planning, and increase workforce productivity, route optimization companies must ensure that their underlying location database is fresh and up-to-date.
However, many existing routing systems rely on popular mapping platforms and APIs that do not refresh their database frequently and supply outdated POI data. Due to this, your platforms might lead drivers to incorrect locations or suggest suboptimal routes - outcomes that significantly impact their productivity and disrupt your logistics schedule.
Up-to-date, contextual, and complete POI data is essential for your route planning applications. The more context-rich the data, the better the user experience. Route planning systems can benefit immensely from the contextual information offered by custom POI attributes – data that mainstream mapping platforms simply do not provide. Such custom metadata includes photos, opening hours, parking options, pick-up and drop-off points, vehicle entry restrictions, and pitstops - helping your end-users manage their time and resources better.
Provide detailed, recent and accurate information on destinations to help drivers and delivery partners make better decisions in the field.
Accurately compute distance and time for a route based on custom attributes to create the most optimal routes for your logistics operations.
Facilitate faster and easier navigation with contextually rich maps that enable flexible decision making for end-users on complex and multi-stop routes.
Power your platforms with high-quality POI data and custom attributes most relevant to your use case rather than a one-size-fits all solution.
Combine POI data with other data such as human mobility, vehicle telematics etc. for actionable intelligence about your business and operations.
Compare historic routes and more recent POI data to predict changes in the physical environment that might impact existing routes.
