Cube Route Adds Support for Merchandisers and Mobile Workforce to Managed Logistics Service

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 26, 2005) -

Enhancements expand visibility beyond drivers and deliveries to sales agents/field service personnel

Cube Route, a provider of on demand logistics services, today announced it has added new features to its service to support resource planning, tracking and routing for mobile workers including sales representatives, product merchandisers, and service technicians. These additions, which include dispatching, job planning, real-time tracking and routing, enable service managers to gain better visibility and control of their mobile workforce while empowering mobile workers to optimally coordinate their own schedules with the delivery of assets or inventory.

"These enhanced features will enable service managers to be more efficient and productive in deploying resources in the field. They now gain all the advantages of powerful planning, dispatching and real-time visibility for their mobile resources that traditional delivery organizations have always benefited from," said Jeff Murphy, COO at Cube Route. "With real-time visibility and a coordinated plan that ensures that the delivery of goods and activities of service personnel are in synch, organizations can improve their customer service while ensuring the optimal use of a field worker's time."

For organizations in consumer packaged goods, retail and other sectors that require the coordinated delivery of assets and inventory with field services personnel it provides real-time visibility and coordinated enterprise management of the mobile workforce schedules with delivery operations.

The benefits of the Cube Route service for mobile workforce management include:

- The ability to create and set a "coordinated" plan for the delivery of assets and arrival of service agents

- Maximized utilization of field service personnel

- Improved tracking of field activity

- Real-time visibility for mobile resource workers into delivery status

- Improved customer service through more accurate arrival scheduling
