Many businesses visit the same set of customers on a regular basis. Examples of this are cleaning, document shredding and pest control service providers, and businesses that deliver water, snacks and beverages.
Although many of the people visiting the Strategic Movements website are looking for a route optimization solution, others are looking for a way to manage their recurring work. Strategic Movements is well suited for this type of organization which could be a paper shredding service, a medical specimen pickup service, a meals delivery service, or any other service where customers are visited on a regularly scheduled basis.
Time is money and time only marches on. Once a minute has passed, that minute is no longer available for any productive use. In the world of route planning, there are way too many opportunities to have unproductive minutes. Doing manual repetitive tasks or planning less than the best routes can yield quite a bit of time that could be spent elsewhere.
Restaurants need more than food for their operations. One necessary service is the delivery of new fry oil and the picking up of the expended product on a regular basis. In addition to a normal schedule, the provider also needs to handle emergency deliveries and needs to change the following day schedule when an emergency has caused schedule disruption.
Many organizations plan their last mile deliveries using routes that do not change very much over time. The customer being visited this Monday is visited by the same person that was there last Monday and will be visited by the same person again next Monday. The case for static routes is that some organizations have a relatively fixed customer base with few changes and that customer base is best served when the same person visits every time an order is delivered.
