MyRouteManager.com is a fully web-based route delivery and management system that runs on any Android, Windows Mobile and Apple tablet or smart phone. The first of two components is accessed by each driver using a hand-held device. The second is accessed by management to add new customers, routes, products and to perform other functions such as exporting invoices to other accounting packages.
Its main features include:
All programs and data are stored on secure servers, which are accessible anywhere and at any time via an Internet connection. Drivers access the website to create orders, change them, and print them. The manager can access the same site to add and change customers, products, and routes; and conduct back-end operations. It is recommended to use devices with 4G capabilities, as they are optimized to use My Route Manager effortlessly and effectively.
My Route Manager can be accessed and implemented by almost any handheld device with a web browsing capability. The suggested size for the screens of such tablets should be about 7 inches. Larger ones cannot be easily tucked into pockets or held in one hand. Smaller ones may prove to be difficult to read and to operate.
Drivers can create customer invoices that reflect the day’s deliveries and returns. With this web-based software, drivers can access previous orders or estimated delivery tickets, update their contents and save them. If the smartphone has a barcode reader, data (in the form of bar codes) can be scanned rather than manually entered.
Once an invoice is generated, My Route Manager’s unique signature capturing software allows your customers to sign directly onto the touch screen of a smartphone or tablet. Depending on the hardware you choose, different operating systems provide different methods for capturing signatures.
On-site wireless printing
Upon request, drivers can print invoices on a belt carried 4″ printer from manufacturers such as O’Neil©, Datamax©, or Zebra©. If a full sized (8.5″x11″) invoice is desired, a Bluetooth enabled, truck mounted printer will need to be purchased.
Real-time data transfer and storage through the internet
Since no data is being stored on the device itself, there is no need for synchronization between the server and the device. Copies of invoices that are created at a customer site are emailed instantly to the customer and management.
