This is for the UK. I am looking for a simple planner for my plumbers to optimize their appointments by finding the quickest routes for multiple jobs and putting them in the correct order by postcode.
This would be preferably through excel sheet uploaded. (open to suggestions)
I would require the following.
Jobs entered by postcode then number of property.
Time slots (we carry out AM/PM appointments and 2 hour appointments) there should be a default time and a adjustment time that can be altered.
A section for the name of the plumber to be added to the route with home postcode attached as finishing point (can be adjusted)
Start and end postcode defaulted and adjusted required.
Section to type in a postcode and find the nearest operative by the planner for that day.
The results produces a map of the route to follow and step by step directions that can be downloaded.
The software should be web based and log in facilities for plumbers to log in and see their route only and ability to download.
Icons for use should be in the style of ipad/iphone apps
Back end user for me to update the routes daily/weekly. Change names etc.
Hope this explains clearly enough. I have small budget so hopefully not a complicated programme.
Thanks for looking
