    Hi- Looking for an online tool/software where I can type in a list of addresses and the system develops the best route and directions. We have been bidding municipal jobs recently with lists of addresses we are not familar. Usually in developing our service route (local customers), we are able to sequence them appropriately on our own. Trying to expand, we are finding ourselves driving all over the place when bidding (waste of time). We have GPS, but I don't see an option to enter addresses to establish best route. I have done some research googling and checking yahoomaps, mapquest to locate a tool and figured you guys would know.

    Does anyone use a specific site or software to accomplish this? Thanks in advance.

    Microsoft Streets and Trips. Enter all your address in and click the "optimize Route" button. It rearranges the route and gives your turn by turn directions. Cost at staples is around $40.00

    Are you setting up pre-made routes? Or do you have some one in the office handling scheduling? Out software has some nice tools, both for flexible scheduling and routing. Let me know if I can help with anything.
