RoadWizard is a new software product from Expertek Systems designed to simplify dispatch planning for companies with small to medium-sized fleets, enabling customers to reduce transportation costs, increase driver efficiency, and improve customer service. RoadWizard is designed to automate delivery scheduling, dispatching, and route optimization using customer data directly from a company’s business system. The software enables warehouse managers to schedule delivery routes as soon as orders are picked from the business system.
Key features of the RoadWizard include:
* A visual map of deliveries by truck, enabling the user to make informed decisions about which truck will deliver what orders where and when.
* Integration with Microsoft MapPoint to provide driving directions and maps and estimated times and distances for each leg of a given truck's journey, giving the user control over their delivery fleet. The printable and automatically generated maps are detailed, labeled for each stop, and feature a colored route line that simplifies getting to the destination.
* An electronic street directory that can be used to resolve misspellings and addressing errors from orders within a business system.
RoadWizard can run both standalone or integrated with NxTrend SX.enterprise, Microsoft Great Plains, Navision, FACTS, and other ERP systems, making it automatic to retrieve the orders from the business system for scheduling, reducing time spent by the dispatcher.
