Upon its inception SAAS was geared toward fulfilling a range of business functions delivering functionality as and when required. Today, SAAS is platform whereby all relevant agencies and appropriate employees have a platform of access to detailed information. The implementation of SAAS has without doubt been in the ascendancy within the logistics industry but primarily focussed on CRM and Finance rather than route optimisation and route planning.
SAAS-based vehicle routing software is known to lower costs, increase day to day efficiency and performance, thus improving service levels. In turn, these benefits advance customer satisfaction and possibly loyalty – as well as tolerance if things go wrong in the future. In the globalised economy of the 21st century, the need for connectivity, communication, collaboration as well as compliance with national legal systems continues to grow. Thus, it stands to reason that dynamic vehicle routing increases in tandem with the SAAS technology employed the global distribution industry.
SAAS logistics continues to innovate
Within the transport and distribution industry SAAS has been likened to the development and expansion of the internet itself over 20 years ago and the most recent revolutions exemplified by social media and networking. In short as the way we communicate with each other is radically different from a generation ago, so are the methods of vehicle route planning employed to optimise the delivery of goods and services. It is taken as given that SAAS produces flexibility of access to cloud-based route optimisation software. A supply chain operation is no longer required to buy and install software in the traditional way but can access Cloud based software as and when required with a more flexible and less onerous payment model.
Additionally, because SAAS is concerned with efficiency and improving business relations it appears that collaboration and communication between disparate agencies will continue to enjoy profound enhancement. By pooling SAAS with the appropriate route planning software with established business networks, it is possible for all elements to connect readily with each other and innovate and enhance their trading practices. In other words, SAAS and route optimisation logistics produces a dynamic and thriving business community which irrespective of its location is connected to a global marketplace.
SAAS and the logistics infrastructure
The term “logistics” is a catch-all phrase that incorporates various operational process elements ranging from the simplest courier route planning software to an intricate supply chain which may extend across half the world. No matter its form a logistics network structure is an evolving and dynamic construct. One significant growth area for SAAS is the continual refining of multi drop route planning software. Delivery times are continually cut to meet client expectations and the delivery operation continuously streamlined to reduce costs in a competitive world.
SAAS is moving in directions that enable specific processes to be refined so that such objectives can be fulfilled. Multi drop route planning can be an intrinsically complex undertaking. All agencies involved (especially when the context is international), need to work together to keep pace with every nuance of development within the industry. Such developments range from implementing the latest legislation to ensuring that paperwork as well as track and trace protocols are fully established. SAAS delivery route planning represents the optimum mix of computer hardware, software and networking. SAAS may need to powerful enough to enable the sharing of information by thousands of people at any given time.
