Whether you are a businessperson visiting customers, a family on a road trip, or a tourist visiting an unfamiliar city, you can use a route planning system that lets you optimize your activities to save time and money. Route4MeTM begins with the simple idea that there exists a need for a route planning and mapping system that lets people find the most efficient route not just between points A and B, but between points A, B, C, D, and… Z. The system has to scale from a simple two-stop route, to hundreds or thousands of stops on one trip. And, it has to provide all the information needed to plan and complete a trip, including a route listing, a map with pins and route lines, and driving (or walking) directions.
Looking around the Internet we determined that there was no Web site or service that meets this need. The major mapping sites are good for non-optimized trips, but if you have more than two places to go, you had better put them in the right order, or you will get back a map and driving directions that will have you zig-zagging across town.
There are a few sites that purport to offer route optimization solutions for businesses, but most of these either, a) don’t work as advertised, b) are expensive (and don’t work as advertised), or c) maybe work as advertised, but only for a limited number of stops (and are so expensive that you need sales calls and team training).
Route4Me has changed the route planning and optimization game completely. Now there is an easy-to-use site (with iPhone and iPad apps as well) that lets you enter up to 200 stops, and get back an optimized route listing, a map with route lines, and turn-by-turn driving or walking directions! This route can be saved to your Route4Me account for later reference, and it can be shared with your friends or business associates by email, or on Facebook, or Twitter, etc. You can even create a route, save it, and then come back and edit it later.
