DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 10, 2010 -- OnTerra Systems ( www.OnTerraSystems.com), a technology leader in Web mapping, fleet optimization, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) integration solutions and services, today introduced Route Savvy™ Beta -- a new route optimization tool for small business fleets, business professionals who drive to multiple destinations for their work, and individuals organizing errands, carpools, and other multi-destination trips. RouteSavvy is based on Bing maps Web mapping technology. The Beta version of RouteSavvy is free, and available immediately on Bing.com at the following link: http://mapapp.routesavvy.com
OnTerra's RouteSavvy™ Route Optimizer optimizes routes for up to 100 stops. Users may input their destinations in three ways: 1) Uploading a spreadsheet with addresses, 2) Clicking on locations in the displayed map which defaults to a user's home or business area, or 3) Manually entering addresses in an input box in the RouteSavvy Web map applications. Once addresses are entered, users also can choose whether they need a round-trip, or one-way route.
In addition, users can specify whether the route should be optimized for distance, time, or time adjusted for traffic. (The "traffic" mode will access the Bing Maps' traffic information to help optimize the route and time it.) When users generate their optimal route, the "results" tab will provide the total distance, expected driving time, and directions to each waypoint.
"Given the current economic conditions, owners of small business fleets, and individuals traveling routes with multiple destinations are wise to look for ways to save time and fuel costs. RouteSavvy provides a fast, easy way to optimize a route for up to 100 stops, which saves time, reduces fuel costs, and enhances customer satisfaction," said Steve Milroy, OnTerra president and co-founder. "RouteSavvy is incredibly easy to use, yet it has more sophisticated algorithms that allow users to optimize up to 100 stops in a multi-destination route. RouteSavvy provides a significant positive effect on a business's bottom line by saving both time and fuel costs."
