Fast and reliable route optimisation


CONTACT ›

T he route optimisation function in FLS VISITOUR is an integral part of the workforce scheduling process. It provides the support required to maximize effectiveness during every scheduling stage; from forward planning, and scheduling routes and appointments, to modifying current or future routes. It is always used when the current status needs to be adapted due to a route alteration.

We therefore refer to it as process-controlled route optimisation. This real-time optimisation is enabled by the outstanding processing speed of the PowerOpt algorithm.

PowerOpt's performance is unique and can be verified through reliable and valid testing. After more than 10 years of mathematical research, we successfully developed an algorithm that displays your service and sales businesses complex orders in real-time scheduling and route planning software.

PowerOpt advantages

  • High flexibility when planning thanks to real-time optimisation when changes happen.
  • Over 20% saved by driving fewer miles and spending less on dispatching.
  • Green IT: improve your carbon footprint.
  • No matter how skilled employees are, they are unable to response to schedule alterations in a way that ensures each and every goal is achieved. In the short time available, it is impossible for them to consider all the domino effects that may occur from rescheduling without violating restrictions or failing to ensure the shortest possible route.

    Route optimisation guarantees the ideal use of resources. You save money and generate more sales from satisfied customers.

    Function

    FLS VISITOUR relies on parameter settings for optimisation. The parameters form the objectives and restrictions of your sales and service activities. In general, the more precise and frequent parameter updating is, the more beneficial and realistic the optimisation results will be.

    The FLS VISITOUR software can be operated manually, semi-automatically or fully automatically. The more freedom given to the optimisation process – this depends, among other things, on the degree of automation and the parameter setting – the greater the likelihood of the PowerOpt results meeting your goals.

    Optimisation is performed automatically in the background. However, optimisation can also be activated after manual intervention in the route scheduling process, which is sometimes needed to get the best results.
