Planning your optimal route in Quickbase can now be done automatically using a familiar Google Maps interface, without ever having to leave your application!
Imagine this: You have all the locations for your route stored in Quickbase. You start sorting through your stops and brainstorming the best sequence to hit them in. You're quickly becoming overwhelmed.
The process of mapping the route is becoming far too confusing and tedious. You keep thinking "There HAS to be a better way." but you just can't put your finger on it. The only thing you know is that routing shouldn't be this difficult. Here's the thing though...
IT'S NOT JUST YOU!
Whether you're looking to save on gas (aren't we all?) or reduce wear and tear on your vehicle, there's no doubt that efficiently planning your route is important.
That's not even to mention the time and frustration that you'll be saving yourself as well.
That's why we developed our QB Maps add-on for Quickbase, which allows you to plan your optimal route in using a familiar Google Maps interface, without ever having to leave your application!
Simply use the drawing tool around the locations you'll be stopping at, click the "Get Directions" button, and QB Maps will automatically give you the fastest route available.
We've made a more detailed video on how you would go about doing this, which you can find here and then follow along with in our demo app.
