QRoutes Ltd was incorporated in 2016 as a joint venture by Jeff Duffell, founder of Mobisoft UK, and David Stewart, CEO of Esoterix Systems.

Jeff and David believed UK local authority procurers of transport planning systems, e.g. for planning home-to-school transport, had been ill-served by existing market solutions, which were generally expensive, difficult to install, difficult to integrate in larger IT systems, and often produced results worse than those from human planners. QRoutes instead provides immediately accessible cloud-based software for planners to create better, more cost-effective solutions faster.

Partner solutions

QRoutes is exceptionally powerful logistical software designed specifically to address local authority transport planning requirements, e.g. mainstream and SEN home-to-school transport and adult social care transport planning. It interfaces with existing data sets making it easy to implement. It delivers GIS visual map-based results in minutes. And it enables planners to explore ‘what-if’ scenarios to find new improved routes. Above all QRoutes is fast, enabling planners to repeat the planning exercise and maintain optimised routes to save money. The market agrees; QRoutes now boasts 25 local authority customers, all secured since the company’s incorporation in 2016. QRoutes is proud to be an Ordnance Survey partner, enabling it to produce highly practical transport plans visualised upon beautiful maps.
