I’m Growing Too Quickly And I Can’t Handle Running The Show

The Thing About Growing Quickly…

Growth is always positive for a business, right?

Not exactly. Growing quickly isn’t the problem. The concern is if you’re prepared to handle it.

Imagine this scenario: your marketing efforts have paid off, and you just attracted a bunch of new customers. But your drivers are already working as hard as they can, and you can’t afford to hire any new drivers.

You don’t want to stretch your drivers too thin. If you assign your drivers more customers than they can handle, they’ll start showing up late. You’ll earn a reputation as an unprofessional, unreliable organization.  This will make many of current customers leave you for one of your competitors, and it’ll make it hard to attract new customers, too. So much for growing quickly, I guess.

What If You Could Grow Your Business Without Increasing Your Payroll Expenses?

Sacrificing stability for short-term profits will come back to bite you. But what are you supposed to do? Turn away new customers? That’s not necessary. If you can make your drivers more efficient, then you won’t need to hire more people to grow your business. Route optimization software makes this possible. Moreover, it makes growing quickly more manageable.

Improving Efficiency Eliminates The Need To Hire New Employees

Such software guarantees that every route you give to your driver is the most efficient route possible. That means your drivers can make more stops without having to rush to do so. 

Planning routes with Route4Me is easy.

First, upload a spreadsheet of the addresses you need to visit. You can also upload a scan of your addresses or copy and paste your addresses directly into Route4Me.

If any of the addresses look suspect (for example, if all of your stops are in Los Angeles, except for one that’s in Alaska), our system will flag them for you so that you can confirm they’re correct before you continue.
