COMPANY PROFILE: ROUTEIQUE
Routeique is not a software company. Our business involves unravelling complexity, ironing out wrinkles, and finding better ways—which means our commitment is always considerably deeper than pixels on a screen, and far wider than just the supply chain.
We are a close-knit team of innovators with nerd-like enthusiasm, and veteran-like experience. We are supply chain experts armed with the mother of all digital platforms. And we are hell bent on ensuring every link, in every chain, is flawlessly efficient and seamless.
Indeed it’s our velvet integration of high touch and high tech—and our insistence on being partners, not vendors—that allow us to bring so much value to the table.
We strive to work passionately, improve daily, speak truthfully, invest wisely, watch carefully, iterate/innovate relentlessly and grow frequently. These are our values, they keep us accountable and drive us to our success. Success is not only growing the business but growing people.
