An introduction...

Hello! I’m Jamila from Switzerland and I am undertaking an internship abroad in Exeter working for RouteShoot for five weeks. You will find me assisting with social media, blogging, video marketing, email marketing and events publicity.

The place I come from called “Montagnola”, is a small Swiss village in Collina d'Oro municipality. Located in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino, it is close to the border between Switzerland and Italy. It looks over Lake Lugano and the city of Lugano upon it.

I'm currently studying full time as a Graphic Designer at the Educational Center for Artistic Industries (CSIA) in Lugano and have just finished my 3rd year. During my time at CSIA i have gained valuable work experience with Graphic Design studios in Ticino.

I think my internship abroad is a good chance to improve my command of English and I look forward to working with and contributing to the RouteShoot team

New and Improved RouteShoot

Recently, the RouteShoot website has been completely redesigned. In addition to loads of new content, new price plans, and a totally new look, we have also made some improvements to the user platform and the app!


The RouteShoot platform is where all of the magic happens so we thought we'd share with you a few of the changes that have occurred over the past few weeks.

  • RouteShoot Journal - Dynamic Thumbnails in the user activity feed now show the conversion progress.
  • Support for WMS (web map service) - The RouteShoot platform now supports custom base maps.
  • Custom Map Thumbnails - Users custom maps can now be viewed in thumbnails alongside the video via the activity feed.
  • Routeshoot Route Line - The colour of the route line can now be customised to your preference.

In addition to the amendments, frequent visitors to may have noticed that the platform got a bit of a facelift recently. Once that endeavor went live, we immediately took aim at doing the same thing for our website.

Earlier this week we rolled out a complete redesign of the RouteShoot website with a new look & feel, cleaner interface, and a more comprehensive overview of the RouteShoot product and options available to the user. Visit now to take a look at the richer, easier to navigate, snazzy new website!

Future Highways 2015 - The KIA Oval Cricket Ground

The RouteShoot Team have just returned from London following a great Future Highways Conference. This was our first Future Highways Conference, and as with many of these exhibitions, the best thing about attending is being surrounded by all the creative energy of folks excited about implementing innovative stuff!

General Observations

  • The conference venue was an excellent choice with fantastic views over the oval cricket ground.
  • The recommended hotel was a good call, easy to get to and within walking distance to get to the venue itself. 
  • The food was exceptionally good and there were plenty of open spaces which was a plus for socialising and general networking. 

Key Takeaways

  • Conference speakers continued to impress with entertaining and insightful talks relating to the highways industry.
  • Over at the stand we met lots of interesting people - clients old and hopefully new.

RouteShoot at Future Highways 2015

Future Highways was a professional development opportunity for our team. Although there were responsibilities of manning a stand, we were still able to enjoy the sessions of our choosing, network with potential clients and come away with ideas to brainstorm what’s next for RouteShoot.

Attending events like Future Highways reinvigorates our creative approach, helps us personally connect with our clients and colleagues, and re-energises our commitment to building the best mobile video collection platform available.
