ResourcePro is an optional, separately licensed strategic planning tool for use specifically with DirectRoute fleet routing and load optimization software. ResourcePro optimizes drivers and power units required for a weekly route schedule and will help to reduce under-utilized fleet equipment and non-value-added driver hours, minimizing the fleet size required to operate a piece of dedicated business.
ResourcePro allows the user to look at routes in several different ways. It’s designed to string routes together utilizing rolling Hours of Service (HOS) rules and slip-seating to optimize schedules of drivers and power units required for weekly routes. Reviewing the results of the ResourcePro output will show the user where routing may be optimized by moving a route to another Driver, vehicle, or to another day if constraints allow.
The use of Gantt charts and detailed reports gives ready use of information generated by the ResourcePro process, enabling the user to see where resources may be optimized by moving a route to another driver, another vehicle, or even another day if allowed by scheduling parameters.
