Microsoft Bing Maps can be used within Clever Shipment Management to provide additional location mapping and route planning functionality. As standard, a map of the route can be viewed on a map. See Viewing Routes on a Map for more details.
By utilising the Bing Maps API additional functionality is available:
- See a map of the drop destination on the drop address page.
- Geocode a drop address to include latitude and longitude co-ordinates to use with external route planning tools.
- Optimise a route by either distance or time based on usual driving conditions.
The Bing Maps integration is available in Clever Shipment Management version 1.3 and later.
Note: To use the Bing Maps integration you will need a Bing Maps API key.
