AMERSFOORT, Netherlands, Feb. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that Telesuper, one of the Netherlands' leading eCommerce grocery retailers, has successfully deployed Descartes' cloud-based Route Planner™ On-demand solution to support its eCommerce growth.

"To keep pace with the rapid growth of our business, we sought a technology solution to automate and optimize our vehicle routing process," said Nimmoo Adam, IT Manager at Telesuper. "Descartes' Route Planner™ On-demand helps us have more efficient delivery operations by taking into account our assets, business rules, customer requirements and geographic information. Seamless mobile solution integration ensures we can track actual performance against optimized route plans and address new work or delivery exceptions as they happen to better serve our customers."

Descartes' Route Planner On-demand offers ease of use and quick time-to-value for rapidly-growing companies, like Telesuper. The solution provides advanced capabilities for route planning, delivery tracking, estimated time of arrival (ETA) alerting, and mobile applications for proof of delivery (POD) and enhanced driver and dispatcher communication. Planners benefit from greater control over daily routes with a visual planning user interface to make fast route edits and monitor delivery status in real-time. The solutions' cloud-based architecture also frees IT resources from having to maintain IT infrastructure and perform software updates.

"Descartes is excited to help Telesuper accelerate their eCommerce growth while operating more cost-effective and customer-centric delivery operations," said Paul Simon Thomas, Senior Vice President of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Descartes. "A growing number of leading retailers around the world rely on our innovative route planning and mobile solutions to transform and differentiate their customers' buying and delivery experience."
