Manifest (Route) Builder is a user-friendly module designed to take in thousands of trips and create efficient ride-sharing routes. IT Curves’ Manifest Builder minimizes capital cost by minimizing the number of vehicles needed and optimizes operating costs by lowering driver hours.
Manifest Builder uses IT Curves’ patented Efficient Ride-Sharing Algorithm (ERSA) to build thousands of trips into routes, using a minimal number of vehicles and lowering operating hours. ERSA optimizes operator costs and complies with many contractual Service Level Agreement (SLA) parameters, including pick-up and drop-off windows, maximum ride times, maximum driver hours per day, and vehicle capacity.
There are multiple ways to input trip data into the system by using a set of utilities for field mapping and verifying trips.
Utilities are important in preparing the data before building routes. With these utilities:
