Chart showing that as costs are reduced and quality increases, efficiency increases as a result

Anyone that works in an organization with service technicians or delivery workers that drive to customer locations knows that there is always some planning that needs to be done each day to get the work done. In the simplest case, a load planner prints out work tickets from a business application and gives them to the worker who will be doing the driving. So what’s wrong with a completely manual process?

In addition to support for dynamic routes where work to vehicle assignments are made using an artificial intelligence process, and support for static routes where the assignments are made each day based on a master schedule, Strategic Movements also supports two types of manual route planning. Manual route planning with Strategic Movements is useful for organizations that make deliveries of products or provide specialized services that cannot be automatically assigned using dynamic routes and do not recur on regularly scheduled basis.

Most businesses want to reduce overall transportation expenses as much as possible while maintaining their equipment well and providing the level of service that their customers expect. For many businesses, a large part of the savings can be found using a software solution that makes intelligent decisions on assigning work to vehicles in the most cost-effective way. When the overall driving distance is reduced, so are fuel and other mileage-based maintenance costs. When the right assignments are made and the work is properly balanced, overtime costs are also reduced.

After route planning has been completed, tracking the execution of those planned routes is a very important part of the daily workflow for many organizations. Strategic Movements provides two parts of the tracking process. First, it can upload the planned routes to a GPS provider using their application interface. Then, as that provider captures tracking data, Strategic Movements can request that data on a regular basis and update the worker or vehicle position and status on the Dispatch Board.

Welcome To Strategic Movements

Why Are We Here?

Experience Put To Work

Hand with map

Since 1989, the team behind Strategic Movements has been providing solutions for our customers to provide service technician or product delivery route planning, scheduling and dispatching to assign work with the lowest transportation costs.

For product pickup and delivery operations, critical to any supply chain is that 'last mile', where the product moves from the store, warehouse, or distributution center to the customer.

For service operations, providing quality service to both residential and commercial customers requires getting the right technician to the right place on time.

Either way, Strategic Movements provides a business process automation solution to put the right work in the right place to minimize the overall transportation costs.

A Cloud Based Solution

IaaS graphic

Some solutions may have browser based screens, but the infrastructure needed for that solution may still be premise based.

Premise based solutions mean that the customer is still responsible for the hardware, internet connections, electricity and cooling. But a cloud based solution takes care of all this, leaving you to focus on your business, not IT issues.

A cloud based solution is infrastructure as a service, and may be significantly less expensive. Rather than using capital dollars for more computers and other infrastructure, expense dollars can be used each month for the services used. And over a period of time, the total cost of ownership is reduced.

By using our cloud infrastructure, not only is there no initial infrastructure investment, but you will never have to upgrade regardless of your growth.

Software As A Service

SaaS graphic

At one time, route planning, scheduling and dispatching solutions required an upfront payment plus an annual maintenance fee.

The software as a service business model replaces these two expenses with a single monthly payment based on the number of workers or vehicles that are being scheduled.

As a service it is scalable. As you grow you can add more workers and vehicles. There is no need to buy extra capacity just to be ready when your business grows.

Strategic Movements is always up-to-date. No time consuming and expensive upgrades are ever needed.

Service Solutions

Product Solutions

Truck being loaded on dock

Product delivery is more than just loading and unloading a truck. At a bare minimum, loading iin the order of the stops to be made must be considered, and the last stop to be delivered needs to be loaded first. But how should the stops be ordered? Is the absolute shortest route really the best one? Are there driver satisfaction considerations as well?
