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. We help you create the most efficient optimized routes using your most-recent subscriber file sent to RouteSmart Online each night.

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 and mile, improve circulation rates, reduce carrier turnover and reduce Complaints per Thousand (CPTs).
