MasterRouter has a rich set of features to handle all kinds of real-world constraints
Stand-Alone or Integrated Modes
MasterRouter is a flexible system that allows for both enterprise-level integration with ERP/CRM systems for extensive planning and task assignment, as well as strategic and tactical planning for assessing theoretical scenarios and changes to your scenarios. Regardless of your requirements, MasterRouter revolves around your entire sales and service operations.
Strategic and tactical scenarios can be run in this mode to answer questions such as:
- How many extra resources will I need if I add 20 minutes to each customer call?
- What will the impact be of visiting customers twice instead of three times per week?
- Where would be the best place to hire a new resource?
- If I kept the customer visit days fixed, could I re-assign the customers to resources more effectively?
- Would allowing my staff to sleep-out enable me to service my customers better?
In this mode, master data is updated via the ERP/CRM (with custom middleware or CSV/XML export) before the assignment of tasks to resources and days is generated by MasterRouter. The scheduled activities can then be published to the calendar interface to map the multi-day plan to actual dates. The sequenced daily tasks allocated to each resource can then be sent to staff via mobile devices.
