HOLMDEL, N.J., March 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WorkWave, a leading provider of software solutions for the field service and last-mile delivery industries, announced today that it was recognized in Gartner's Market Guide for Vehicle Routing and Scheduling(1). Gartner identified WorkWave Route Manager as a representative vendor that is perceived as relevant in the market based on revenue, number of clients, and end-user interest and feedback.
WorkWave offers solutions for mobile workforce companies in the field service, last-mile delivery and logistics industries. WorkWave Route Manager is WorkWave's SaaS routing optimization solution for fleet management, field service management, mobile workforce management, and pickup/collection and delivery companies. It provides private and service fleet users across the globe with a modern user interface that integrates planning, optimization and tracking to facilitate a cohesive user experience. Through its powerful routing algorithm, WorkWave Route Manager users may experience an increase in efficiency of up to 30 percent, be able to plan up to 20 percent more deliveries, and be able to reduce fuel costs by as much as 10-15 percent - increasing ROI, saving money and creating more efficient routes that allow for white glove service every time.
According to Gartner, "Cloud-delivered and SaaS solutions are the new default deployment method within [Vehicle Routing and Scheduling] (VRS) applications. The cloud offers many advantages to the customer, such as inexpensive hosted solutions that are often pay as you go, faster onboarding and ramp-up, reduction in the downtime of the solution, and higher reliability. The cloud has made these VRS solutions widely available, especially for a large number of smaller fleets. We see companies with fleets of even a few vehicles successfully adopting these types of solutions."
To exceed the needs of its customer base, WorkWave Route Manager recently launched its new user interface that combines the power of route planning and GPS tracking all into one screen, allowing for increased flexibility in response to customer demands, more streamlined operations, and dashboard customization to fit specific customer needs. The new interface leverages state-of-the-art technology and guarantees even more stability to ensure WorkWave is able to grow with its customers, while also empowering them to keep up with their customers' ever-evolving demands.
