ANTEI Intelligent Route Planner is a tool designed to bring advanced intelligent route planning into Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Like NAV itself IRP uses the latest Microsoft technology to bring transport and route planning into the NAV application. This allows transport and delivery planners access to an easy to use planning tool based in NAV which utilises award winning route optimisation algorithms.
The advantage of ANTEI IRP over standalone packages is that it is built into your Microsoft ERP solution and so all data is readily available, making reporting easy and maintaining interfaces between systems unnecessary.
