Route Optimisation is now in beta

We have now completed the first phase of the route optimisation module and will be rolling out the functionality this evening. In this phase you can enter in a number of postcodes in any order and choose the start and end locations.

There are 2 possible scenarios to choose from.

[1] The start and end locations are the same and therefore the route is circular

[2] The start and end locations are different and therefore the route is linear / one way.

Once you tell it what type of route you require, the application will provide you with the shortest route.

During tests we have found the accuracy to be around 97% and 100 locations takes less that 10 seconds to calculate and report back the results.

See the following screenshot for an example (click on the image to zoom in):-

How do you want to use this functionality? Let us know and we will see if we can help.
