In addition to the web-based solution, C2RouteApp™ is also available as an API (application programming interface) for route optimization. Interface your current billing/asset management software with the power of the C2RouteApp™ routing algorithm. The API automates the use of the existing web-based application in addition to up to 90 user-defined constraints (ranging from quantities of multiple products to deliver, time windows, and overnight trips, to loading/unloading time per type of product, assignment of specific drivers to individual clients, truck sizes, and day of service per clients, etc.). C2RouteApp™ assigns clients to, and generates, driving routes for each vehicle with the ultimate objective of creating the most efficient, least expensive way to run the routes while respecting all the constraints.
The C2RouteApp™ API is designed to easily interface the C2RouteApp™ with billing/asset management systems. The import/export uses the common Microsoft Excel 2000/2003 (.xls) spreadsheet format. The C2RouteApp™ API will take the spreadsheets and transfer them via SSL to the C2RouteApp™. Based on the parameters that were provided in the spreadsheet data, the C2RouteApp™ will run a route optimization and then create an export file in the same spreadsheet format to be downloaded. This resulting file will have the pertinent information regarding the routes to include the route numbers, sequence numbers, estimated time of arrival, etc.
