A new route planning tool is available for free of charge to U.S. small and medium size businesses to help optimize the delivery of goods and services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
HERE WeGo Deliver allows businesses to plan and dispatch an employee-based delivery service without software development and implementation costs. This is made possible by the employees at HERE, a leading location data and technology platform, who created HERE WeGo Deliver as a give back opportunity based on the company’s work across the global transportation and logistics industry.
“Manually organizing and sequencing multiple delivery stops, and drivers, is time consuming, and the margin for human error is significant,” said Christoph Herzig, Head of Fleet Applications at HERE Technologies. “HERE WeGo Deliver makes it simple for both the business owner and driver by easy uploading, optimizing, viewing and dispatching of routes through a web-based dashboard.”
Managers simply upload all the destinations and number of drivers to the online planning dashboard, and HERE WeGo Deliver optimizes each route and delivery sequence. Drivers receive their delivery route by email, which automatically opens and populates the delivery route end points in the HERE WeGo mobile app to provide voice-enabled navigation. HERE WeGo is available to download for free on Android and iOS mobile devices.
“Businesses need our support. The lack of economic activity has particularly hurt U.S. retailers and restaurants that rely on foot traffic. At the same time, demand for delivery services have skyrocketed while small businesses are challenged by keeping their employees working and limited digital infrastructure,” said Kirk Mitchell, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Americas at HERE Technologies. “This new tool for America’s businesses was created by the employees of HERE as a way to give back during these challenging times.”
HERE WeGo Deliver is available for free of charge to any small or medium size business until 2021. For more information, and to start utilizing the delivery solution, go to their website.
