New predictive traffic feature allows software developers to easily incorporate advanced, predictive traffic calculations into route optimization software solutions they develop
DENVER, Colo., July 24, 2018 – OnTerra Systems, makers of the RouteSavvy route optimization tool (www.RouteSavvy.com), today announced it has added Predictive Traffic functionality into its new RouteSavvy route optimization application program interface (API). In May 2018, OnTerra Systems announced a new RouteSavvy route optimization application program interface that allows developers to more quickly and easily incorporate route optimization into software solutions and applications they develop. By adding Predictive Traffic functions into the new route optimization developer tool, RouteSavvy now offers one of the most powerful & affordable route optimization APIs available today.

Predictive Traffic Feature Is Key to More Efficient Route Optimization
Predictive Traffic is an advanced route optimization feature that allows fleet managers to plan a multi-stop route based on when the route will be driven. This is accomplished because historical data on known traffic patterns (such as at rush hour) are incorporated into the calculations for the most efficient route.
Standard route optimization tools help fleet managers create more efficient routes and reduce miles driven, which reduces fuel costs and overtime labor costs, and increases productivity.
When predictive traffic capabilities are added to standard route optimization tools, it results in efficient routes that are calculated based on traffic volume, as well as the most efficient route in general.
For example, when optimizing a route using the predictive traffic feature added, fleet managers and route planners input the stops on the route for the day, and the time of day that the route will be driven. When the software API optimizes the route, the route optimization algorithm uses historic predictive traffic information to generate an efficient route that avoids areas and roads with heavy traffic congestion.
“Our new Predictive Traffic function in the RouteSavvy API is the next evolution in effective route optimization,” said Steve Milroy, OnTerra Systems president. “Efficient routing is a tremendous time and money saver for companies and organizations operating fleets. The addition of predictive traffic capabilities combined with basic route optimization takes efficient routing to another level,” he said.
New Route Optimization API Costs Just $500 a Year
The starting cost to use the OnTerra Systems’ RouteSavvy route optimization API is just $500 per year. The starting cost for the Basic version of the API supports up to 20,000 transactions for one flat, annual fee of $500. Here are the different RouteSavvy API versions:
- RouteSavvy API – Basic: $500 a year with up to 20,000 transactions per year for the base price.
- RouteSavvy API – Real Road: $500 a year with up to 10,000 transactions per year for the base price.
- RouteSavvy API – Predictive Traffic: $500 a year with up to 5,000 transactions per year for the base price.
Users can exceed the standard transaction per year pricing for a modest extra fee.
“By offering our new RouteSavvy Route Optimization API, with the new Predictive Traffic feature starting at just $500 for a year, we are fulfilling our mission of providing cost-effective access to traditionally expensive & complicated technologies,” said Mr. Milroy.
RouteSavvy (www.RouteSavvy.com) is an affordable, web-based, route planning software tool developed by USA-based OnTerra Systems. RouteSavvy costs less than $25 per month for up to 3 users per year, and case studies have proven that RouteSavvy has saved many businesses up to $5,000 per year, and often times, much more. RouteSavvy helps managers of small to mid-sized fleets plan more efficient routes for deliveries, pick-ups, service calls, and sales calls. It has proven ROI and generates immediate savings that typically pay for the modest investment within one month of purchase. OnTerra Systems also offers an Application Program Interface for RouteSavvy so software developers can integrate RouteSavvy route optimization functions into the applications they are developing.
