We have now launched our community delivery software on Road XS. With the outbreak of COVID-19 and the lockdown which is in place across the UK and the world, we knew we had to do something with our existing technology to support communities and ensure food, medicine and shopping could reach the vulnerable.
In ordinary times, Road XS is the leading community transport software. We help organise medical trips, social outings and help save passengers money by finding the nearest available driver. This means passengers save on mileage and time and get to know people in their community.
There has been an incredible response from volunteers all over the country to help their local communities get people food and the supplies they need. We wanted to do our bit too, so we have completely redeveloped the Road XS technology to support local deliveries.
Using Road XS for deliveries, you can now work as a team from the safety of your home and organise your team and volunteers remotely. You can quickly and easily create deliveries and then allocate deliveries across your team and even merge multiple deliveries onto existing journeys. Your spreadsheets and information are brought to life in a way like never before!
The technology in Road XS means that all your pickup points get handled automatically. This means your volunteers are not bouncing around town randomly, but that all pickups are done at the same time before then being delivered in a logical and optimised way – no going to one end of town to the next and back again!
Deliveries are grouped together saving time and mileage. This means you can get more from your team and when more and more deliveries are requested they get handled automatically and routes update like magic! No thinking required, you only have to focus your energy on the customer.
