The function Best Route chooses the order of locations for the most efficient route.

Travel time is the main factor to be optimized, but other factors such as distance, number of detours, and complicated paths can also be taken into account by Google Maps to determine the most efficient route.

A recent example of a company that chose to use the same feature that has always been used by the Contele Team Manager is Uber, where the app shows the value of the ride and the estimated arrival of the passenger, even before calling the car.

This feature adds great value for those using Uber, as it forces the driver to make the most efficient route so as not to waste time and money. And most importantly, the customer gains a lot from it!

How to Plan the Best Route through the system?

Go to the Planning tab in the menu, choose a user and select the Locations for planning. Then enter the Departure and arrival point and press the Best Route button.

If your account does not have Departure and Arrival enabled, the system will choose the first and last point in the list as the departure and arrival points.

Note that when generating the Best Route, looking at the map, you can validate that the Start and Endpoint is really the best option and if you want to change it, you can drag and drop the Location to reorder.

Tip: Use the Best Route feature through the Contele Field Team Manager app:

How to Plan the Best Route through the app?

You can also use Contele Manager to plan Visits with the Best Route.

Download the app from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android)).

In the application, after selecting the Users and Locations, click on the option "Best Route", and the application will adjust the Visits in the fastest way.



Difference from the Route calculated at the time of the visit

The Route calculated at the time of planning may differ from the route taken at the time of the visit, which may lead to differences in the KM Run calculation.

Contele Field Team Manager's WEB and APP systems are integrated with maps from Google Maps and Waze, third-party applications.

These apps analyze factors such as traffic to judge which route is best to take.

Therefore, at the time the planning was done, the Best Tour could be one, and during the visit, it could be another.
