How it works in practice: Property search
Let’s say two people want to live together but work in different locations, they can search for a middle ground. On an estate agent’s website this feature means a couple can find a house that’s within commuting distance for both of them. It finds the best area even if they need to arrive at work at different times, use different transport modes and travel at different times.
Add this feature to a dating site so visitors can find a meeting place that’s suitable for both of them.

How it works in practice: allocating service engineer territories
When creating territories for service engineers, you need to ensure that engineers can complete the work in the time allocated and travel times can eat into precious appointment time. With TravelTime Analytics, you’re able to upload 10 service engineers’ addresses, calculate 1 hour travel time areas and overlay your client database.
