Parlevel Systems has announced the release of Smart Routing – a powerful tool for operators to route their business. Smart Routing enables vending operators to plan customised-dynamic routes, schedule dozen of routes automatically and immediately, and increase overall routing speed and accuracy.
Through Smart Routing, operators can customise their routes based on machine, station, or micro market factors important to their business. Some of these factors include money to collect, sold outs, machine type, days since last service, and more. Different machine factors can be set for each route. This allows the tool’s intelligent algorithms to consider these factors, learn the machines, stations, or micro markets that meet the designated criteria, and add them to a route. Once routes are planned by Smart Routing, operators can drill down into each route and add or subtract machines with a few easy clicks.
Rafael Barroso, chief information officer at Parlevel Systems, said: “With Smart Routing, Parlevel’s VMS brings routing capabilities to a new level.
“By allowing customers to specify their planning criteria using multiple, customizable factors, Smart Routing gives operators substantial efficiency increases, a decrease in operational costs, and the benefit of serving their customers better. This tool takes us closer to our goal of achieving a fully automatic VMS that eliminates repetitive tasks and allows operators to focus on higher level projects. Undoubtedly, it will become the new standard for Route Planning in the near future.”
Smart Routing learns unique operational needs over time to optimally schedule correct location visits, render the routing process fast and easy, and to plan dozens of routes at once. Smart Routing is currently available for all Parlevel operators inside the Parlevel VMS.
