Enterprise adds optimisation

Leading transport management solutions provider Enterprise Software has appointed a new route optimisation partner.

Enterprise Software, which has longstanding relationships with some of the biggest names in logistics, has selected My Transport Planner as an official route optimisation provider. My Transport Planner is the UK’s first fully pay-as-you-go route optimisation platform. Through improved vehicle utilisation and smarter route planning, users can achieve up to 30% savings on transport costs, including a mileage reduction of up to 20%.

Mark Coonihan of Enterprise Software said: “Logistics providers understand the benefits that route optimisation brings to their operations, but some don’t want to be tied into a long-term contract. My Transport Planner is a true pay-as-you-go platform, which can deliver cost savings to our clients while also enabling them to remain agile.”

Colin Ferguson, CEO of The Algorithm People, developer of My Transport Planner, said: “Enterprise Software is one of the UK’s biggest names in transport management solutions. Being selected as one of its partners demonstrates that industry experts are starting to see the huge potential within My Transport Planner.”

My Transport Planner is a web-based solution, making it ideal for remote working during lockdowns or other restrictions. Companies already benefiting range from small businesses through to national chains such as Selco Builders Warehouse. Users simply import jobs, depots and resources, then powerful algorithms plan the optimal routes and schedules, while ensuring all customer requirements are met. Schedules can be pushed out to Enterprise Software’s electronic proof of delivery (ePod) devices, giving drivers complete routes, turn-by-turn navigation, and accurate estimated times of arrival.

Enterprise Software has been providing transport management solutions for more than 20 years. The company offers a range of modules which together can manage the entire logistics process from taking an order to invoicing. Core functionality includes flexible visual planning tools, load optimisation, ePod, web portals and business intelligence systems.

Colin added: “Our goal was to create a game-changing platform that could bring the benefits of route optimisation to logistics operators of all shapes and sizes. Working with a highly respected brand like Enterprise Software is the ideal way for us to continue that journey.”
