By Hal Reid and Joe Francica

Cube Route (Ed note: Location Intelligence Magazine recently had a product overview discussion with Alex Walker, CEO of Cube Route. This is a summary of that discussion.)

Cube Route is a browser and cell phone independent solution for routing and managing field personnel .

It is Java based so not only does it work with almost any cell phone, but also works with CE powered PDAs and Smartphones.

Cube Route uses a business model of the customer only paying for what they use and is a transaction based model.In this way, there is no commitment for hardware, software only the service that they use. Pricing starts at US$2,500 set up charge with monthly minimums about US$1,250.

Cube Route also has a dashboard like BI output so that metrics can be seen of the customers system.For example, average time at stop, average number of stops per field person and metrics can be updated via GIS information.

Beyond just the basics of routing field people, the system can address the entire distribution network in terms of planning, metrics, deliveries and routing.

It can also be tied directly to the supply chain, order entry and billing systems.Geo-coding can be done when the order is entered so the end point information is carried with the order from the onset.
