MapFrame Corporation Introduced FieldSmart Route

MapFrame Corporation introduced FieldSmart Route, a mobile point-to-point, street-level routing system with route optimization for utility crews operating in the field. Route combines client GIS and mapping data with turn-by-turn directions to improve dispatch capabilities, reduce windshield time and enhance customer service with higher on-time response rates. FieldSmart Route, which operates on any Windows platform, utilizes GIS data in conjunction with supplementary mapping data supplied by GDT to build directional information between two or more points—devices, addresses or work orders—in the client service territory. In addition, the application has the ability to interface with existing mobile dispatch solutions, enabling field personnel to outline an optimal route for the day based on the location of each service order.
