Here are the top 5 new recent updates we’ve made to EasyRoutes for Shopify (Local Delivery • Route Planner on the App Store) to help you craft the perfect delivery experience for your customers.
(1) Custom SMS and Email Notifications
A very-much requested feature is here for EasyRoutes Premium users — completely customizable email and SMS delivery notifications!
For emails, you can add your logo, customize all the text, and even add your own links using our easy editor (no more dealing with complex Liquid code like with Shopify’s notifications).
We’re also excited to launch customizable SMS notifications! This is a BETA feature, which means we would love your feedback! It is currently only available to Shopify stores based in the US and Canada for an additional costs of $15 per driver/month during the beta. We plan to roll out this feature to the rest of the world — support and pricing will be announced at that point. Stay tuned!
(2) Notification History Timeline
We’ve also added an in-app notification event timeline so you know exactly what notifications were sent and when. You can view this in the Actions menu for the stop whose history you want to check.
(3) More Customization Options
We’ve added even more customization options to our order tracking pages as well as out packing slips and labels. Check them out in your EasyRoutes Settings.
(4) Better Support for Subscription Apps
We’ve improved how EasyRoutes works with subscription apps, including apps that use a single order with scheduled parts.
(5) Route Group Improvements
We’ve cleaned up our Route Groups action menu and added the ability to add a blank route to your groups to better help with planning. You can also now assign drivers from the group view.
6) Huge Performance Upgrade
If you deal with a lot of orders, you should definitely notice that EasyRoutes is feeling a lot speedier. We’ve spent a lot of time under the hood making sure our app loads fast and works with older browsers.
We’ve also made a lot of updates to our routing engine, like supporting routes with very long ETAs and max stop times. And we also made some tweaks to better support for countries like Turkey and South Africa. Let us know what you think!
New Customer Profiles
Crisper (Meal Kit Delivery) — “EasyRoutes was especially helpful because my business is a subscription service and that type of order doesn’t qualify for Shopify’s native route generator. This app does everything I need it for!”
JOMO Studio (Plant Delivery) — “”[EasyRoutes] has definitely saved us a lot of time compared to a different app we used before that has no integration with Shopify.”
