Trakm8 offers optimization tool for free during lockdown

Trakm8 has announced it will be making its Insight Optimisation platform free for as long as the Government lockdown persists, in a bid to support fleets of all sizes during the COVID-19 crisis.

Trakm8’s solution is a British designed and built SaaS product, developed to support British business and is aimed at small and medium sized enterprises (SME).

The global pandemic has resulted in demand spikes throughout a number of supply chains, from personal protective equipment to grocery items; once commonplace but now scarce.

In such an environment and with demand at record levels, maintaining and improving the efficiency of operations through AI based route planning is said to be paramount. The task is increasingly complex as deliveries have to respond to obscure and localised spikes in demand that are hard to predict. Furthermore, as economies across the globe artificially slow down to halt the spread of COVID-19, Trakm8 wants to support transport providers through this challenging period by providing free access to its latest optimisation tool.

The aim is to ensure that businesses will be best placed to bounce back when the market restrictions are lifted.

Insight Optimisation is Trakm8’s intuitive route planning solution, which uses big data to handle fleet requirements. It has also reportedly been proven to cut fuel expenditure by up to 20% and increase productivity by up to 33%. Maximising the concept of useable data, rather than planning a simple A to B route, Insight Optimisation takes into account the size and capabilities of a fleet and applies them efficiently to the task at hand, whether that’s five or five thousand deliveries a day.

The free period of Trakm8’s tool can be redeemed at any point during the government lockdown, with no contractual obligations thereafter. Insight Optimisation works with almost every available computer system – all that is needed to get started with its web-based portal is an up-to-date internet browser. The only file a fleet manager will need to upload is a csv, which can be opened in any text editor or spreadsheet tool.

Peter Mansfield, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Trakm8, said: “At critical moments like these, it’s paramount that supply chains keep moving and goods get where they need to be. Supply chains and the logistics professionals are just as integral as our treasured NHS staff in keeping our country moving, and they need extra support.

“By making our market-leading route planning product free to anyone who needs it, we hope to provide some extra support to those on the front line. We are proud to be a British business supporting our country in these difficult times”
