Design rounds and services that
reduce costs and risk

 

 

 

 

 

Everything you need, nothing you don't

EasyRoute lets you design more efficient and effective waste collection rounds. Our unparalleled accuracy and ease of use delivers quicker projects, better results and faster return on investment.

 

 

 

Key Benefits

 

Design new rounds

By balancing workloads and optimising routes, EasyRoute makes it easier to design more efficient rounds. EasyRoute ensures each round is achievable in practice to reduce the risk of public disruption.

 

Test service scenarios

By quickly and accurately evaluating the benefits of alternative service scenarios, such as extending frequencies or changing shift patterns, EasyRoute lets you determine which options to take forward, safe in the knowledge that changes will actually work.

 

 

Plan resource requirements

By establishing the exact resource required to deliver new or growing services, local authorities and contractors can more accurately plan for costs and reduce the risk of service issues during mobilisation.

 

Maintain efficiency

EasyRoute lets you maintain the performance of rounds as new properties and collections are added. By balancing and sequencing rounds regularly you ensure you don’t lose efficiency as demand changes and grows.

Customer Success Stories

The best way to understand the value our solutions create is to talk to some of the 100 local authorities that use our systems.

 

“The software allowed us to robustly evaluate a number of service options and to deliver the two-shift system with confidence. The new rounds have saved us £500,000 a year and given us additional recycling capacity.”
