Visual On-Route

Save on fuel and labor costs
On-Route warns the driver if a service is missed or out of sequence preventing costly return trips. And the Navigator route service map display cuts the learning time for new and temporary drivers.
Improve driver productivity
The driver sees exactly where to go and what to do next. The Navigator map shows the real-time truck position on the route with images that show service type and status. Standard pickups automatically record date, time and location for "proof of service", while problems can be recorded by simply touching the Service Exception buttons.

Connect the office and the driver
On-Route continuously reports truck position and service status to the office while dispatched service changes are quickly sent to the truck computer. The Dispatch Desk displays service status, and can split routes or re-route to cover breakdowns
Increase driver safety
No more missed cell phone calls or forgotten instructions to distract the driver while trying to navigate traffic. Message Manager provides instant text messaging displayed on the map next to the service location.

Reduce customer service calls
Customer Service representatives report that half the calls are asking when they will be serviced. Now customers can go to the Online Customer Service Manager to see service times, delays and even the reason they were missed. Here they can have the option to re-schedule the service.
Lower truck maintenance costs
On-Route uses GPS to continuously record truck acceleration, speed and braking data. Route playback reports provide color coded driving profiles to show how adjusting driving habits can reduce wear and tear on the truck.

Designed and backed by industry leader, Alpine Technology

On-Route has been specifically designed from the start to meet the special demands and harsh environments of the Waste Industry. Our design team evaluated the actual driving conditions and observed the challenges faced by drivers. As with all our Waste Management Technology solutions, we continue to research ways to improve On-Route to help businesses become more efficient.

Total integration is a key factor to saving valuable time in the office. On-Route talks directly with our premiere waste office management system, Visual RAMS-Pro, to automatically produce route lists including up to the minute changes and dispatches. It also takes care of billing extra services and notifies the proper personnel to resolve service issues. Combine the time saved in the office and on the route to that of fuel and maintenance, and you'll find an exceptionally quick return on investment and faster profitability.

Another Solution - Handheld Route and Service Information. RAMS-Pro CE puts information in the hands of those who need it most. Sales reps and route supervisors are just some of the field personnel who will benefit. Scheduled tasks are downloaded while service problems are resolved or forwarded to the right person. All resolution actions including photos are synced with the office system. See HERE.
