RouteTools helps drivers plan their trips
Jan 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Rand McNally's new RouteTools software is a routing, mileage, and business management system that allows professional drivers to plan routes on truck-drivable roads, navigate using detailed route itineraries, integrate fueling stops, and calculate precise mileage for accurate billing and fuel tax reporting.
RouteTools generates trips based on user-defined truck configuration to help avoid fines. The software also features detailed descriptions of almost 6,000 truckstop locations and their amenities to help drivers maximize downtime. For drivers who use Rand McNally's Motor Carriers' Road Atlas, the software provides full-color maps and directions that reference the appropriate pages in the 2009 edition of the book.
The software also helps manage fuel expenses by directing drivers to their preferred fuel retailer through a listing of nearly 6,000 fuel stops. For an additional monthly fee, professional drivers are given access to a fuel-optimized routing service via the Web that helps them navigate based on lowest fuel prices available that day.
