Why Are My Competitors Doing Better Than Me

You Can’t Manage What You Can’t Measure

If you find yourself losing business to your competitors, it may be because you don’t have the same tools that they do. Ask yourself these questions:

Are you able to analyze your fuel expenses? Are you able to analyze how well your drivers are performing?

You probably already know that route planning software helps you get from Point A to Point B, but did you know that it also helps you keep track of your expenses and performance? With the detailed information that Route4Me provides, you can make more informed business decisions.

That’s why route planning software is an absolute must-have for your business. Refusing to invest in this resource allows your competitors to hold an advantage over you.

Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That

If you only have a handful of customers to visit, then maybe you can plan your routes by hand without much trouble. But what if you have dozens or even hundreds of customers? In that case, it would take you hours to plan your routes manually, and there’s no guarantee that the routes you come up with are the most efficient routes possible.

Route optimization software can create perfect routes for you in less than a minute, no matter how many stops you need to make. Just imagine what you could do with all that extra time…

The Goldilocks Solution

Bidding on contracts is a delicate art. Bid too high, and the client will probably choose one of the lower bids in order to save some money.

But if you bid too low, you won’t make a profit even if you do win the contract. You may even lose money if you misjudge how much the route will cost you in gas and labor.

Smart Bidding with Route4Me

With Route4Me, you can make mock routes and see how much it will cost you to run a new route. With this information, you can set bids that are low enough to be competitive, but also high enough for you to turn a profit.
