OMD Announces Strategic Alliance with Logistic Solutions Group for Route Optimization & GPS
JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri – OMD Corporation, the leading provider of business software solutions for dealership automation, announced today a partnership with Logistic Solutions Group (LSG), a premier developer of logistics technology, specializing in innovative mobile computing solutions. Logistic Solutions Group employs leading–edge technology to enhance and streamline delivery logistics, asset tracking and other field operations for businesses across multiple industries. LSG has integrated its RoutePerfect Optimization and RouteVision GPS Tracking systems with OMD Vision software.
RoutePerfect simplifies delivery routing, enabling companies to increase the number of stops per truck, reduce daily route miles, fuel costs, vehicle maintenance and overtime, while improving management oversight of deliveries. The software quickly analyzes each day’s deliveries and automatically calculates the optimal sequence for each route. Routes can be changed at any time, enabling companies to accommodate last-minute additions to the delivery schedule, absent drivers, or out-of-service trucks. RoutePerfect can also generate printed maps and turn-by-turn directions to assist drivers with new or modified routes.
RouteVision, a GPS and automatic vehicle location system, increases productivity and improves customer service while tracking assets and managing driver compliance by reducing unauthorized vehicle use. With RouteVision, management has the ability to track vehicles in real time and ensure deliveries. The software also eliminates the need for drivers to fill out paperwork by creating a log and time-stamp for each vehicle’s daily path, increasing the driver’s time management.
“Our systems have allowed hundreds of delivery businesses to reduce costs and improve service,” stated Rob Kirchner, Vice President of Sales for Logistic Solutions Group. “by focusing on efficiency a company can make more deliveries per day at a lower cost, significantly improving the bottom line and allowing greater focus on the core business at-hand.”
