This application, The Route Optimising SideKick, will assist businesses and people travelling for leisure when planning and optimizing their journeys. With time being so precious, businesses are continuously trying to save money wherever they can, this solution offers one of the easiest ways to do so. Using this application allows productivity to be enhanced and all without having to reduce employee’s earnings or enforce cut backs of any sort.
Distribution companies, businesses delivering produce, repair companies and service companies all visit and travel to several destinations on a daily basis. By simply spending ten minutes planning the route, engineers and drivers can save so much time, every day. Other benefits include:
- Lower fuel consumption
- Enhanced productivity
- Reduced employee hours
- Lower wages for the company
The brilliance of this application is that people travelling for personal leisure can also use this for tracking routes when visiting several locations on a holiday or trip. This offers a massive gain, ensuring as little time travelling as possible and allowing them spend more time enjoying their actual destinations.
The initial release of this application is a free of charge application that can offer five free locations to guests. By simply registering to our site we will double that and allow you enter ten destinations at any given time. Once we have launched and are a recognized site we will eventually charge. The benefits of charging and offering this to businesses would be that they can save and store favourite routes or locations into our database. The plan is that we can again double or treble the allowed input, to twenty-thirty destinations in one go.
