Fleet Innovation Resource Center

Innovation has been central to the evolution of Descartes’ routing, mobile and telematics solutions. Never before has there been a convergence of so many technological advancements available to accelerate their transformation. Descartes is combining these advancements with the deep domain expertise gained over many years in the market to deliver the next generation of solutions that make a difference to your business. Here are some of the many ways Descartes is leveraging advanced technologies.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
Machine Learning is the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience. It is seen as a subset of artificial intelligence.
Same-Day Optimization
Same-day optimization is the dynamic delivery appointment booking and execution of intra-day ad-hoc orders through intelligent automated selection.

Strategic Route Planning

Strategic route planning is a technology-enabled route planning process to determine the optimal combination and location of resources to meet customer service & financial targets.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an application of technology, governed by business logic and structured inputs, aimed at automating business processes.
Digital Twin
A digital twin is a virtual model of a process, product or service. This pairing allows analysis of data to head off problems before they even occur.
Cloud Elasticity
In cloud computing, elasticity is defined as the degree to which a system is able to adapt to workload changes by provisioning and de-provisioning resources in an autonomic manner.
