Routeware, Inc., a provider of computerized route management systems to the waste industry, 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 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, a U.K. market share leader in route optimization, 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 onboard computer systems, better route management and intelligent route design,” said Routeware CEO Tom Malone in a statement. “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 PhD to operate,” said EasyRoute and Webaspx CEO Calum Forsyth in a statement. “Our EasyRoute optimization product works seamlessly with Routeware’s on-board computer system to creatively and safely improve waste industry routes.”
