Routeware, Inc., a leading provider of computerized route management systems to the waste industry, today announced the acquisition of EasyRoute, Inc. and its UK parent company, Webaspx. Both companies serve municipal and for-profit haulers who operate residential, commercial, and roll-off fleets.
The companies, who 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, who is the UK market share leader in route optimization, will continue operating under the same brand.
Routeware CEO Tom Malone stated: “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. When combined with Routeware’s Driver Performance Optimizer (Routeware DPO™), haulers can safely lower costs, capture more revenue, and increase customer satisfaction.”
EasyRoute and Webaspx CEO Calum Forsyth stated: “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. Our EasyRoute optimization product works seamlessly with Routeware’s onboard computer system to creatively and safely improve waste industry routes.”
