Strong Partnership Makes A Name For RouteSmart In Europe

UK RouteSmart partner ISL highlights routing expertise in public works and beyond

Columbia, MD (3/7/12) — For RouteSmart Technologies, the process of building a reputation as a global leader in route planning solutions relies heavily on the quality of its partners outside of the United States.

One such partner is UK-based Integrated Skills, Ltd. (ISL), which provides a wide range of high quality waste management, environmental, engineering and GIS/IT consultancy services and software in the UK and more than 60 other countries. Through local experience, expertise and a number of successful engagements, ISL has helped to make a strong name in public works for RouteSmart in Europe. ISL’s recent closed deals include:

  • Assisting the Chelmsford Borough Council in the East of England in diverting waste food from landfill into composting sites by installing and training users on RouteSmart route optimization software to add both routes and vehicles to their fleet.
  • Implementing a mail delivery routing solution and modeling tool for the Isle of Man Post Office, eliminating the need for costly and subjective work-study analyses, and improving productivity by delivering realistic delivery spans and spread, saving the postal service approximately £80,000.
  • Partnering with local consultants Ambiente Italia and applying RouteSmart’s flexible feature set to support Progetto 6, a program to optimize waste collection and environmental service collection routes across Southern Tuscany in Italy.
  • Working with the Cardiff Council in Wales to successfully balance workloads and reduce fleet costs for a waste and recycling fleet of 50+ vehicles.
  • Applying RouteSmart in an attempt to decrease costs across Scottish local authority Dundee City Council’s waste, recycling, street cleansing, winter maintenance and other services.
  • Helping the Craigavon Council in Northern Ireland utilize RouteSmart software to reduce costs in their local waste and recycling operations.

“Building and maintaining strong global partnerships enable RouteSmart to grow and expand its international presence,” said Chris Walz, Vice President. “Skilled partners like ISL give us an authentic local presence, and minimize the ramp-up time needed to effectively serve our global customers.”

ISL is one branch of RouteSmart’s growing network of global partners, each helping to further solidify RouteSmart’s position as the worldwide industry leader in route optimization solutions. RouteSmart is on a continuous mission to align with best-of-breed complementary product and service providers. Each new relationship formed is another step toward making the world’s most intelligent routing system even better.
