Today we introduced a new version of RouteSavvy™, web-based route planning software for small and mid-sized business fleets and business professionals who drive to multiple destinations for their work, and those seeking an alternative to Microsoft’s MapPoint and Streets & Trips, which were discontinued on Dec. 31, 2014. RouteSavvy is based on advanced optimization algorithms from OnTerra and Bing Maps’ Web mapping technology. RouteSavvy can organize and optimize routes with hundreds of stops; and can optimize a route in seconds.
RouteSavvy is available now, and has been designed by web mapping & route optimization experts with a friendly interface that’s similar to MapPoint and Streets & Trips, thus minimizing the time needed to learn to use RouteSavvy by former MapPoint and Streets & Trips users.
