PTV Map&Market 25h plans and optimizes routes for field sales and service teams
Karlsruhe, May 07, 2019. PTV Group’s mobility experts today announced that they have launched their route planning app PTV Map&Market 25h on Salesforce AppExchange, the world’s leading enterprise apps marketplace. Salesforce users can now manage their sales organization more efficiently by making use of PTV’s planning intelligence.
Professional routing: PTV Map&Market 25h allows to plan working weeks easily. It fills calendars automatically and optimizes tours if dates are changed.
Sales organizations could benefit from spending less time on the road and more time with their clients. And they want to be able to react flexibly to ad hoc changes, e.g. short-term orders or last-minute sales promotions. The PTV Map&Market 25h route planning app could help sales organizations to accomplish this. It provides sales centers with important overview and planning powers as well as the planning functions as a mobile application for the field staff. The new app pools PTV’s know-how gained from four decades of experience in trip planning and optimization.

"We offer companies professional planning intelligence – from strategic annual planning to short-term resource planning – and thus much more than just route planning," explained Thorsten Frerk, responsible for Fieldforce-GeoManagement at PTV globally.
The integrated recommendation feature of the app can help sales organizations identify potential customers and/or the “next best action” for each salesrep. On the basis of all stored basic conditions – such as opening hours or sales call frequency and last visit – it helps identify additional customers who could be visited along the sales call route e.g by corridor search. They can then be easily integrated into the existing CRM/SFA/Office system.
Built on the Salesforce Platform, PTV Map&Market 25 h is currently available on the AppExchange at
