My Drivers are Having Issues with Gridlocked Areas

The Thing About Traffic…

If you need to send your employees out to meet with customers on a regular basis, then you’re already familiar with how traffic can affect your business. It is that unpredictable factor that messes up business timelines and schedules.

Gridlock Is The Problem

Time is money. The longer it takes for your employees to reach your customers, the less value you get out of your payroll dollars. This is an especially big problem in urban areas, where traffic during rush hour can bring your drivers to a complete halt.

Route Optimization Software Is The Solution

When you plan routes with pen and paper, it’s difficult to predict traffic. There’s a decent chance you’ll accidentally send your drivers directly into a jam.

That will delay your drivers, which is sure to upset your customers. They might even leave you for one of your competitors. Worse yet, they might go online and leave you a negative review. That’ll make it harder for you to attract new customers.


But what if we tell you that there is a way to solve this problem?

A cloud-based route planner like Route4Me automatically updates to reflect real-time traffic conditions, so your drivers will be able to avoid traffic and keep your customers happy.

What’s Up With Left Turns?

Traffic isn’t the only thing that can slow your drivers down.

Ever notice how when you need to take a left turn at an intersection, sometimes it seems to take forever?

Left turns are unpredictable. Unless you have an arrow, you don’t have the right of way, so you need to wait for traffic to clear before your can take the turn. In addition to wasting time, all that waiting eats up a lot of gas.
