Pros

Easy to use, great reliability. We all use it here at my company.
As a Realtor, it is always challenging to plan a route to show many properties that is most effective. Route4me is perfect for planning my showings.
Responsive, feature-rich and backed by good customer support.

Pros

Love the interface and ease of accessibility. Love that rate view price averages are shown during the load posting.
I like the ease of booking loads. I enjoy looking for loads because it's easy.
I like that I can find all my loads on this board. I also like that it is user friendly.

Cons

That when your free trial stops with no warning it erases All your route from a personal email.
SMS are not working well (very badly actually). Cannot manage orders (only stops).
They did not follow each other in order. Also after a stop has been completed the user is not sure of or unclear as to which way to proceed to begin the next stop.

Cons

Let some fake brokers to use it and we can be contacting fraudulent brokers.
Just dislike seeing competitors loads. Meaning they would be able to see mine.
Trip milage always error and never calculated with truck map, make the market volume decrees.

Often times does not load

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Then when it comes in wanting to use it or needing to use it it doesn't load. You do everything in your power and ability to make it happen and it's just does not load. Often times this app just does not open up. When I contact customer support they are very very big and not really helpful. I used to love it when I used to be able to communicate with the owner directly of this app of course that was a few years ago before he went big and sold the company but it was a much more intimate experience on your issues were addressed immediately

Cons

When it doesn't load and you don't know what to do.

Simple Cost Saving Way to Plan Complicated Routes

Reviewed a year ago

It's been great so far, would be even happier if the above functions could be added.

Pros

It is user friendly both on the admin and user side. It has cut our dispatch/scheduling work load down more than half, which allows us to focus on other important items.

Cons

I would prefer to be able to circle locations on a map so I can mark them as a first priority. Also need a simple way to enter recurring breaks.

Daily User

Reviewed 5 years ago

I am a  daily user of your route4me app. As I am a FedEx home delivery driver. I enjoy the simplicity of the app, in comparison to other GPS apps on the market. However, it seems sometimes some of the addresses I input get dropped off once I optimize the route or either the map location places me on the other block in location to the address I am seeking. I have conducted an update to the software and it still happens. This is frustrating when executing my route, as I have to spend additional time redirecting myself from map location.

Pros

Simplicity and ease of use of the app. Unlimited stops can be added, easy to update, change or add locations while en route

Cons

Sometimes inaccurate place of address location, long time to optimize and load No indication of duplicate address being added. Inconsistent ability to change location as visited, the app will sometimes not change color.

Route optimization

Reviewed 3 years ago

I like this app and use it 3-4 times every week, it helps me complete my work more efficiently.

Pros

Optimizing Route is the best for saving me time and efficiency.

Cons

Adding stops during route operations is cumbersome. I don’t like having to load up old routes just to see the stops, sometimes it would be helpful to see an address I’ve previously visited to get the date I was last there.

Great for small businesses, easy to use at sensible cost

Reviewed 2 years ago

Really good so far

Pros

i really like to instant access to online support- always there and really helpful

Cons

to get full use of the software I need to have more drivers and use the desktop features where i can track drivers - at the moment were simply using it on mobile phones, but it does work great! Its a little frustrating to not be able to load up files of addresses to Favorites or Addresses, but guess this could happen with the desktop version?
