Our Roots Run Deep!
Since 1980, the principles of Advantage Route Systems started developing software for Bottled Water companies. While PCs were very new at the time, some revolutionary software was created that laid the foundation for ARS to be created a decade later. With those extra years of experience, in 1993, we first started developing our first software for the Epson EHT-30 touch screen computer for Modesto Bottled Water in Modesto, California USA.
This handheld device proved to be a game changer for bottled water companies around the world. Its simple - yet powerful - interface has been the gold standard of all handheld software in the industry. The passing of time has strengthened an original idea and made it even better.
From humble beginnings with just two people crafting the software, it is now used in over 30 countries by hundreds of bottled water companies from simple one truck operations to multinational global companies. Scalability is achieved through our powerful desktop software that supports up to 100 users and literally hundreds of handhelds. In addition to 5 gallon (19 L) containers, we also support companies in water treatment and OCS businesses.
Dedicated to an industry that spawned ours, nearly 60% of our installed customer base is still in bottled water delivery. Each day, thousands of trucks in this industry depend on our solutions to collect data in the field and return it safely to our desktop!
