WorkWave®, a leading provider of software solutions for the field service and last-mile delivery industries, has been named to the 2018 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list by Food Logistics, a publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain.
The annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers serves as a resource guide of software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.
“We are honored to be named to the Top Software and Technology Providers list for the third year,” said Marne Martin, CEO of WorkWave and President of IFS’s Service Management Business Unit. “WorkWave’s powerful SaaS solutions allow our food delivery customers to ensure that they can offer flexible, efficient and accurate delivery options to their own customers, while making sure to fully deliver on these promises.”
WorkWave’s Route Manager™ solution enables its customers to keep up with rapidly changing consumer demands when it comes to delivery preferences, especially in the food delivery space where flexibility and accuracy are key. The platform is an all-in-one route planning and GPS tracking solution, which addresses the specific needs of companies looking to increase efficiency in transporting goods and services to commercial businesses or homes. It utilizes a proprietary algorithm to optimize route scheduling and planning so that its users can easily build routes and schedules that are efficient for their business.
WorkWave works with grocery delivery companies like SPUD.ca, who are changing the face of grocery delivery. SPUD provides consumers with access to farm-to-table, fresh, local, and organic products in the most sustainable way possible through its online grocery delivery service. With WorkWave as one of its key partners, the SPUD team is able to customize their routes and scheduling, adapt to any changes that come their way, and ensure they are maximizing fuel efficiency. So far, they have seen over 35% growth since using WorkWave Route Manager.
“The digital supply chain continues its rapid emergence, bringing with it expanded capabilities that impact visibility, security, compliance and efficiency,” remarks Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director for Food Logistics and its sister publication, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Every aspect of the global food supply chain stands to benefit from new and innovative software and technology that is fundamentally changing the global food supply chain.”
