We are Routeware
With offices throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, Routeware today represents the single source for proven, integrated solutions for fleet automation and engagement.
As our customers rapidly adopt solutions across our powerful, purpose-built portfolio, we continue to intentionally expand while providing the best customer experience and outcomes in the industry.
How it started
Routeware was founded in Portland, Oregon over 20 years ago. Right from the start, we have been focused on providing municipalities and private haulers with technology for their solid waste fleets.
As customers embedded our technology in their operations, they began to ask how Routeware could help them address more challenges — and whether we could help integrate different systems.
To fulfill these needs, we developed new capabilities, found innovative ways to apply technologies such as real-time video to solid waste collection, and acquired some of the best solid waste software products in the market — then integrated them with our solutions.
These acquisitions add significantly to the quantity and quality of Routeware’s experience in the waste industry. They also allow us to provide enhanced service to our customers, including industry-leading route optimization and more products and features to fulfill special waste needs.
All together now
Our first acquisition was EasyRoute, and its parent company Webaspx, the leading route optimization software for solid waste collection and street sweeping services. This software helps our customers lower costs, improve performance, and reduce risk as they design new routes.
We also have acquired two back-office system suppliers, extending our existing integrations and partnerships with them to allow more data sharing. Core Computing Solutions gives us access to one of the most trusted waste ERP systems. Core bills and manages customers, tracks materials and inventory, and reports on every aspect of financial and operational activities. The addition of RouteOptix gave us similar capabilities with a focus on haulers of special waste, such as liquid and hazardous waste.
Our next acquisition, Andrews Software, Inc., gives us expertise in document management and destruction, as well as disposal of highly regulated medical waste.
Most recently we have joined with ReCollect, the number one provider of self-serve tools for recycling education and outreach. ReCollect helps municipalities and private haulers communicate better with the people they serve to reduce recycling contamination and lower call volumes with delightful, custom-branded mobile apps and website tools. As the world leader in waste communications software, ReCollect integrates with a wide variety of back-office systems, giving customers one solution for customer-facing communication.
