New API based on the same route optimization platform as RouteSavvy allows software developers to easily incorporate route optimization into software solutions they develop

DENVER, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OnTerra Systems (www.OnTerraSystems.com), Web mapping experts and a long-time Bing Maps reseller, today introduced a new Application Programming Interface (API) based on the same powerful route optimization platform used for OnTerra System’s popular & widely used RouteSavvy route planning software. This new RouteSavvy API is a web service that any developer can use to easily add route optimization features into software applications. For more information or to purchase, please visit: https://www.routesavvy.com/routesavvy-api/

OnTerra Systems has had a route optimization API in place for developers for many years, according to Steve Milroy, OnTerra Systems president. The new route optimization API is built on current software development technology known as “RESTFUL API.” By introducing a new RouteSavvy API based on that most current software development platforms, it is even easier and faster for software developers to incorporate RouteSavvy’s route optimization functions into their applications.

“The new RouteSavvy API is one of the most powerful, low-cost options that allows software developers to incorporate route optimization into their applications,” noted Mr. Milroy. “For software developers who have a requirement to incorporate route optimization into an application they’re building, the new RouteSavvy API allows them to do this quickly, easily, and at one of the lowest costs available on the market today.”

New RouteSavvy API Incorporates Multiple Route Optimization Functions
The new RouteSavvy API can provide route optimization using two distinct route types: Basic & “Real Road.”

  • Basic route optimization calculates the most efficient route based on “as-the-crow-flies” navigation. This is ideal for most routes, offer fast processing of routes, and supports up to 500 stops.
  • “Real Road” route optimization utilizes a more sophisticated route optimization algorithm to calculate the most efficient route based on the location of actual roads. This technology is ideal for higher density areas or routes with geographical obstacles such as lakes, rivers, open space & more.

New Route Optimization API Is Both Powerful & Affordable
The starting cost for use of the RouteSavvy API is $500 per year. The starting cost for the Basic version of the API supports up to 50 vehicles in a fleet for one flat fee of $500. The Basic version is powerful and fast: it can process a 500-stop route in less than one second.

  • 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.

Users can exceed the standard transaction per year pricing for a modest extra fee.

“Predictive Traffic” Functions Coming Soon from OnTerra Systems
The new route optimization API from OnTerra Systems also sets the foundation for a powerful, new route optimization feature called “Predictive Traffic.” Predictive Traffic is an advanced route optimization function 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.
