PTV Smartour 2017.1 is available now. There are three new use cases which can be resolved using the new version.
You can summarise orders into small territories in order to provide a basis for spatially compact and evenly balanced tours.
This is now easy, as PTV Smartour 2017.1 automatically takes the geographic location and additional factors such as depot capacity into account, resulting in optimal assignment of orders to depots.
Unbalanced precombined tours can be optimised automatically with a single click. The assignment of a given order can change, and any orders that have not yet been assigned to a precombined tour are distributed across the available precombined tours.
With PTV Smartour 2017.1 you can open two tours in parallel, compare them with each other and edit them simultaneously. The practical drag-and-drop function also allows you to easily move tour stops from one tour into the other. This not only saves time, but also allows you to revise the tour in accordance with your own ideas.
A new module is now available as a beta version for all users of PTV Smartour linked to a telematics system.
This new module allows you to compare tours planned by PTV Smartour with tours executed in real life so you always retain an overview. You need to be using a telematics system in order to make the comparison. The reports from the telematics system are analysed within the module for a selected period. These telematics reports form the basis of the interpretation and compilation of the actual tour.
