Improved Address Formatting for Delivery Drivers
Every day at Circuit we show delivery drivers millions of addresses. We get this information from Google Maps as well as from dispatchers using Circuit for Teams.
In our mission to make delivery as seamless as possible, we are improving how we format addresses. This means showing more important information upfront (like store names and postcodes) and making better use of valuable screen space.
This saves drivers time for every delivery they make, as they don’t have to check a manifest or search for the address in a different app.
As an example, take a look at the following address:
Important information like the postcode, which many drivers use to find their way around, isn’t there. This is because most of the address is crammed into the second line which will be cut off on small screen sizes.
From now on, we’ll show the same address like this:
Everything drivers need to see is right there, no more, no less. As part of this change we’re also changing how we save addresses in Circuit. This won’t be visible to drivers but will work silently to improve the accuracy of navigation with apps like Waze, Google Maps & Apple Maps.
