eSpatial has just added route optimization software to its suite of mapping tools. (If you don’t already have eSpatial, sign up for a free trial here.)
Now you can plot your Excel data and then create an optimized route map with turn-by-turn navigation
Don’t miss out
Have you ever gone on vacation with a list of places to go and things to do – then, when you arrive back home, you realize that you didn’t see half as much as you wanted to see? If you map your data and are not using the new route mapping function that we’ve recently added to eSpatial, you may be missing out, in a similar kind of way.
However, it’s one thing to overlook a visit to the Arch de Triomphe in Paris. It’s an entirely different matter if you overlook customers – or potential customers – on your travels. That’s a loss of a relationship-building opportunity and/or potentially a new customer with a lot of business.
That’s where route optimization software comes in – it helps a business get the most out of an existing market, in a time-saving and economical way.
“You can take an eSpatial map, put it on an iPad. You can fix it, you can lock it and you can send it to your reps. The reps go in the field with their iPads and they just punch in the addresses of the people they want.”

Great for sales
eSpatial route optimization software is a fantastic tool that allows sales teams to make the most of on-the-road activities.
If you’re going to meet someone to close a sale, for instance, then why not call into that long-time customer who runs their operation just a few miles down the road? Find out how they are faring with your product and service. You might just catch them at the moment they are contemplating a move to your competitors. The face-to-face personal approach is always an investment worth making.
Great for other activities too
If your business is in distribution or logistics, then an eSpatial map can become the heartbeat of your operations. It can hold all the key data on your customers, while the route optimization software gives you the freedom to reach out to those customers in the most efficient way, saving on time and fuels costs. That’s a powerful combination.
Throw in easy sharing on mobile devices and you just couldn’t make your business operations any easier!
