Evaluating Routing Software: 4 Things You Can't Do Without

The path to deciding on a routing software solution has some key considerations. These variables will impact the return on investment (ROI) you get and influence how smoothly you can integrate the software into your enterprise.

This paper outlines four key things to consider that will impact ROI and the effectiveness of your transportation and routing management solution. First, the specific industry knowledge and expertise of your routing software vendor will guide you to a better software decision.

Next to consider is the quality, quantity, and accessibility of training for your new routing software. The training and support offered will have a huge impact on its value to your business.

The adaptability and flexibility of your routing solution are also important factors to ensure that the software aligns with your business, and not that your business bends to the software. These are a few things a software partner needs to be able to explain and provide if it’s crucial to your business:
  • Static routing
  • Dynamic routing
  • Off-day deliveries
  • Variables in your route specifications
To tie all of the key routing solution considerations together, you need a technology platform that runs the way your enterprise does. Consider the technical environment that works best for you—is it software as a service (Saas), is it an on-premise system? Talking to fleet managers and asking your software vendor many questions will put you on the path to the right routing solution. Read More
