They have two process (subpoena) servers and need some type of route planning software that can take a list of local street addresses preferably through an upload in csv or similar file type and plan a route.   I think they’d settle for something that can be printed out but it would be great if there was an associated mobile app.

Great place to start. I don't use routing myself, but Brouter, which
is on that list, seems to be highly regarded by the folks on the
OsmAnd list.

OsmAnd is an excellent Android/IOS open source mapping app (I've
used it for years, just not with routing). Brouter can apparently
produce routes that OsmAnd can follow (OsmAnd can do its own
routing, but it's not great at it and Brouter is apparently much
better). So those two used together might be a good solution.
