DUBLIN and BOSTON – October 27, 2016 – Fleetmatics Group PLC (NYSE: FLTX), a leading global provider of mobile workforce solutions for service-based businesses of all sizes delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS), today announced that customer Joyride Coffee, a coffee distribution company, has told Fleetmatics they experienced improved efficiency and productivity gains throughout their business after implementing Fleetmatics RoutistTM
Fleetmatics Routist is an intelligent routing optimization
solution that systematically builds cost-effective, customer-friendly routes for fleets. It calculates and deploys route plans to drivers in the field, and features real-time and historical data that gives users a holistic view into routing performance.
Joyride Coffee tells Fleetmatics that since implementing Fleetmatics, they have seen improvements in driver safety, their ability to balance driver workload, and a reduction in traffic violations. Additionally, Joyride’s management now spends far less time worrying about where their drivers are or fixing small routing details, which has improved the overall quality of life at the company.
“We deliver in Manhattan, which is a challenge and we needed a system that would take everything into account and determine our routes for us,” said Adam Belanich, President of Joyride Coffee. “Before Fleetmatics, we had to manually determine routes, which was especially challenging if we needed to move any orders around. Now, it is much easier to tweak the routes. We have fewer headaches and it’s a huge time saver.”
Joyride Coffee has three locations in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. In Manhattan, a fleet of trucks leave Joyride every day and deliver coffee to locations all over, covering up to 18 miles of the city.
“Routing a fleet of vehicles can be complex and time consuming,” said Todd Ewing, Director of Product Marketing for Fleetmatics. “If you’re a dispatcher for a small business, the number of potential routes for the day can easily reach the billions. With Fleetmatics Routist, Joyride Coffee has told us they’ve seen faster and better balanced routes and they continue to see benefits that help to improve their overall business’s efficiency.”
