Introducing Route Planning Functionality

Aug 2, 2016

We’re thrilled to introduce our brand new Route Planning functionality which has been specifically designed for hire businesses in the portable toilet, accommodation, welfare unit industries, which allows businesses to plan, manage and optimise service runs making them as time and cost efficient as possible.

Managing Director here at inspHire Graham Dobbs says; “By listening to our customers, we knew that planning service runs, especially in the toilet hire industry can be a bit of a pain. We wanted to create fantastic functionality, that our customers can reap benefits from every day and that’s what we’ve done”.

Key features within Route Planning Functionality include;

Route Planning Integrated Web-Based Mapping
Full Route Optimization Equipment Due for Service
Recurring or one-off site visits Calculate travel times
   

Take a list of addresses that have been entered into the system and generate the most efficient service run at the click of a button as well as taking into account the time it will take a driver to travel from one location to the next, inspHire also factors in the length of time each service will take, ensuring engineers have enough time in the day to complete all of their allocated jobs. Improve customer service by giving your customers accurate time frames as to when the engineer will arrive on site and how long a job will take.

If a client has your equipment on long term hire and you need to schedule numerous or regular services, then you can easily create recurring site visits. Ensuring the service is never missed and easily allows you to plan ahead. Useful alerts automatically remind you when equipment is due for service and if a service has not been scheduled, then the system will remind and prompt you to book one in.

Ensure your drivers are always legal by scheduling routes that comply with driving time regulations. Integrated web-based mapping allows you to see your complete route on an on screen map, it makes sure all routes are consistently up to date, any changes in road layouts are accounted for and all routes a fully optimised all of the time.

inspHire Software makes it easier for hire businesses in the portable toilet, accommodation and welfare unit industries to manage every aspect of their business.
