Optimized field service routing for your business constraints and rules

  • Vehicle capacity

    Optimize routes based on vehicle capacity to maximize efficiency and minimize wasted space.

  • Time windows

    Meet customer expectations by scheduling deliveries within specific time windows for prompt service.

  • Maps integration

    Seamlessly integrate maps for accurate navigation, ensuring efficient and reliable route planning.

  • Various vehicle types

    Plan and mix different vehicle types to optimize for specific requirements such as size, weight, or specialized equipment.

  • Technician breaks

    Efficiently incorporate breaks. i.e. lunch breaks into routes without compromising delivery schedules.

  • Technician skills

    Assign technicians to jobs based on their skills and expertise to ensure the right person is on the job.

  • Affinity

    Consider customer preferences and establish routes that prioritize visiting locations with higher affinity or priority.

  • Multi-day completion

    Certain jobs can't be finished on the same day. That's when multi-day service completion comes to play.

  • Multiple depots

    Optimize routes with multiple starting points or depots to streamline operations and serve diverse areas.

  • Shift end limit

    Define the when the vehicle and technicians have to return to the end-location (home, depot, ...)

  • Custom constraints?

    Your unique business rule can be translated into an actionable constraint.

18 years of Planning Optimization

18 years ago I started OptaPlanner as an Open Source project and built a team around it, at Red Hat.

Now we are continuing the project as a dedicated company under the Timefold brand. Improving on our already existing product, building with the co-creators of OptaPlanner.
