Vehicle Route Optimization
Vehicle Route Optimization
Compass software is a routing solution for planning and optimizing activities that require traveling or transportation. Its main purpose is to find the optimal execution plan, respecting different geographical, environmental and business constraints.
What are the possible solutions for routing optimization task?
- Hire expert to do it manually – time-consuming, inaccurate, not always available and usually expensive.
- Use preset solvers – only basic features and impractical. Cannot solve every use case
- Use software with smart algorithms, designed specifically for the purpose
Manual vs Machine optimization
The following study has been performed with group of 31 people
– Connect the dots to find the shortest tour possible.
– First attempt and best attempt in period of 30 minutes has been recorded for all attendees
- No one found the optimal solution. Most people didn’t even find a near optimal solution
- On average, a human’s best result was 9% worse than the optimal solution. That means it roughly takes 9% more time and 9% more fuel to visit those locations.
Compass is a solution that can be integrated with any of your systems for task information extraction and recording of planned routes afterwards. We may also use an e-mail channel for planning and optimizing activities.
The solution is suitable for all logistic and transportation companies, organizations that deliver food and any other companies, where routing optimization is needed. Тhe solution ensures the shortest route that leads to better cost-efficiency.
In reality, finding optimal solution could be a challenging task. Most of the companies have a heterogeneous fleet, preliminary agreed with the customers time for visiting, different tasks require different skills of the personal. The flexible and feature-rich algorithm of compass is considering all these factors and many more.
Solving the routing optimization task is one of the approaches for companies who wishes to have sustainable growth in their industry. There are huge benefits that effective solution brings about – save time, save money, increase productivity, increase profit margins, boost satisfaction and lead to sustainable growth.

You are not investing in front for software acquisition.
Our model is pay as you go. You are paying only what you are using. The same way you are paying for electricity and water. The payment model is based on a service usage.
We may integrate the solution with any existing system you have.
You could try the efficiency of our solution with provisioning of previously calculated routes to experience the savings you will have selecting Compass.
- Optimize transportation activities for 130-180 employees to home or office
- Heterogenous fleet – buses for 8 passengers and taxes
- Different departure and arrival times
- Execution plan made manually, taking 1.5 FTEs per day
After implementing RPA and Compass based solution
- Execution plan prepared automatically for 3 minutes per day
- Real road distance and travel time between locations is used
- GDPR personal data protection of the employees addresses
- Transportation cost decreased with 20%
Execution plan made by RPA and Compass
