Maxoptra routing and scheduling software is now available to Geotab customers via the Geotab Marketplace. This newly integrated solution leverages vehicle data collected via Geotab’s telematics device, the Geotab GO, to provide fleet managers with intelligence on journey routes and times. Utilised by Maxoptra’s advanced route optimisation algorithms this will help to enable improved planning and deployment of transport and field service operations. Geotab’s telematics solution also provides data on fuel consumption, driver behaviour and vehicle maintenance that can all be factored into the scheduling and routing process helping to further improve operating efficiencies and boost customer service.
Available to download on the Geotab Marketplace, Maxoptra joins a growing portfolio of mobile apps, software Add-Ins and hardware Add-Ons that enable Geotab customers to customize their fleet management.
“Maxoptra is a cloud based, open platform, which makes it easy to integrate with existing hardware, software and workflows,” commented Joey Marlow, Executive Vice President of U.S Operations at Geotab. “Using telematics data within the routing and scheduling process can help provide additional measurements and as a result additional insights for improved decision making.”
Stuart Brunger, Maxoptra Business Development Director, added, “The ease of integration with existing hardware and software solutions is just one of the things Maxoptra has in common with Geotab. We also share other factors, such as ease of use, scalable solutions, flexible contracts and first class support, which makes the integrated solution even more appealing to SME fleet managers.”
A cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery management and optimisation platform, Maxoptra can build a vehicle schedule in seconds, taking into account possible constraints such as capacity, driver restrictions, customer requirements and delivery preferences. A powerful route optimiser, it gives users the opportunity to improve productivity and achieve tangible savings while a feature rich mobile app ensures the real time flow of business-critical information.
