It is modular to allow an extremely flexible and scalable solution based on the unique needs of each customer.

 

Route Accounting PC

 

Route Accounting PC is a software tool for the Microsoft ® Windows ® NT/2000/XP operating systems designed to help you store, track and manage your routes, customers, items, pricing groups, pay method discounts, orders, and more. It offers an efficient means of controlling and communicating this data to and from handheld computers running Route Accounting CE and/or Route Accounting for WorkAbout.

 

Route Accounting PC Features and Benefits

  • Master Route Template for building and scheduling daily routes, as well as cut, paste, or remove stops from any given route and day.
  • Maintains calculated average of items that need to be loaded onto each route vehicle, for each customer, for each route, for each day. Items to load for a given route are downloaded to the handheld computer(s) along with the daily list of stops. The route salesperson simply follows the loading prompts displayed.
  • Secondary loading method for companies that use a designated person to load route vehicles.
  • Built-in communications allow quick downloads of critical route information to each route person's hand held computer (i.e., daily stops, updated pricing groups, driver notes, etc.).
