Routeware Inc., a Portland, Oregon-based provider of computerized route management systems to the waste industry, has announced the acquisition of EasyRoute Inc. and its U.K. parent company, Webaspx. Both companies serve municipal and for-profit haulers who operate residential, commercial and roll-off fleets.
The companies, which have worked successfully as partners for the last two years, will integrate their offerings which include in-cab computers, route management software and software-based route optimization. Webaspx will continue operating under the same brand.
“The inclusion of EasyRoute’s easy-to-use route optimization product in our portfolio uniquely positions Routeware to deliver best-of-breed on-board computer systems, better route management and intelligent route design,” Routeware CEO Tom Malone says. “When combined with Routeware’s Driver Performance Optimizer (Routeware DPO), haulers can safely lower costs, capture more revenue and increase customer satisfaction.”
“Our partnership with Routeware proved that U.S.-based waste haulers want a modern route optimization solution that works and doesn’t require a GIS specialist or a Ph.D to operate,” EasyRoute and Webaspx CEO Calum Forsyth says. “Our EasyRoute optimization product works seamlessly with Routeware’s on-board computer system to creatively and safely improve waste industry routes.”
