Delivery slots improve customer service

Delivery slots improve customer service

Worcester, UK – 22 February 2011 – Commercial route planning website Route Optimiser receives a fresh new interface and simplified payment structure this week – making it easier than ever for delivery companies to cut costs, plan shorter routes, and improve customer service by providing an estimated time of arrival.

The new payment system offers a choice between “pay-as-you-go” credits and annual user licences, with prices starting from £15 for the smallest credit pack.

Route Optimiser was launched in 2009 by IT specialist Postcode Anywhere. The company’s managing director Guy Mucklow said: “The new licensing makes it easier than ever for commercial vehicle drivers to use route optimisation technology, and make the most all the associated benefits.

“Where goods delivery is a central part of the organisation, there are a few common factors which can really make the difference between a successful business, and one that’s just surviving. The fact is that no company can afford to just muddle along in today’s economic climate.

“Route Optimiser delivers the technology that helps differentiate businesses from the competition. Thanks to Route Optimiser’s scalable pricing, it can serve large industries - such as the parcels and pallets market - as well as the smallest ‘man-with-a-van’ operations.

“Of course, the service isn’t just a huge asset in the delivery of goods – We have a number of customers who use us to intelligently deploy field sales engineers, for instance, where rather than spending hours manually plotting visits on a map to work out the best route, they can get an immediate and far more efficient journey planned, from wherever they are, with our service.

“For commercial deliveries, cutting journey times by up to 40% gives a huge competitive edge by making the best use of drivers’ time and shielding fleet managers from the ever-increasing cost of fuel.

“But by planning routes carefully and generating an expected time of arrival, it’s also possible to dramatically improve customer service levels, by informing the customer of when the driver is likely to be with them. With growing customer expectations and rising fuel costs in the face of a stark economy, the difference between success and failure is getting slimmer all the time. Route Optimiser widens that gap, and any business which can use it stands to benefit considerably.”
