In the previous blog of the SuperSalesReps Series, we saw how Sam used Maplytics to plan and manage all of his appointments like a Super Hero!
With the Super Powers of Maplytics, he was able to get an overview of all the appointments for the day and assign a couple of low-priority appointments to his colleague Joe. Sam performed all of these activities without leaving Dynamics 365!
In this blog, we will see how he can use Maplytics to be more productive and handle all of his appointments by creating optimized routes.
The Super Power of Route Optimization!
With all his appointments plotted on the map, Sam is now ready to create optimized routes to ensure that he is spending more time meeting customers than on the road!
He quickly decides which client he will be visiting first by analyzing the appointments plotted on the map and quickly sets it as his origin. He then selects his last appointment for the day and sets it as his destination.
Now, he quickly adds all of his other appointments to the route and hits the ‘Go’ button.
He can now view the route created covering all of his appointments.
Sam realizes that he might spend too much time traveling this route, so he quickly selects the Optimized Routes option and clicks on ‘Go’ again.
Now, he can view the optimized route created for all of his appointment.
With the optimized route, Sam can now complete his entire appointments well within his schedule. Also, as the route was optimized, he will be saving a lot of time, effort, and fuel that would have otherwise affected his Sales Productivity.
In the next blog, we will see how Sam can use Maplytics when one of his appointment is canceled to schedule an impromptu meeting with a client.
