No matter the circulation size or newspaper routing challenge, our industry-leading software and services offer powerful and scalable solutions for managing the complexity of your newspaper routes. We deliver proven results while continuing to develop new and innovative solutions to meet your delivery routing needs.

A Powerful Newspaper Routing Tool

RouteSmart Online uses advanced algorithms, engineered and refined over decades of working with newspaper clients in both home delivery and single copy routing operations, to automate and optimize daily routing processes from your desktop or mobile device. With an updated subscriber file from your circulation system automatically sent to RouteSmart Online on a nightly basis, you can create optimized delivery lists for the next day and never miss a subscriber change.

In addition to functional updates and enhancements, street data gets updated regularly based on intelligence from HERE maps, the leading supplier of navigation-quality digital map data.

RouteSmart Online Advanced Edition supports realigning route territories, creating new carrier routes and building single copy distribution plans faster and with more flexibility than manual street routing techniques or other automated packages.

Each subscription level offers unique product features for newspaper route planning, including personalized RouteSmart Online Business Reviews where you will enjoy time with our experts to dive deep into your usage and discuss how you can get the most out of your subscription.

RouteSmart Online helps our clients increase deliveries per route, improve circulation rates, reduce carrier turnover and reduce Complaints per Thousand (CPTs).
