ALK Technologies Releases Upgraded PC Miler 26
June 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
ALK Technologies released the PC Miler 26 product line, which now includes new interactive map features, "Fastest" routing and RouteSync functionality for route compliance.
PC Miler 26 provides an increased ability to interact with the PC Miler RouteMap for more effective route visualization and customization. New features include the option to view satellite imagery, new map styles to customize the look and feel of the maps and more zoom levels. Drag Routing and via point management make the route easy to customize and enable the creation of preferred routes.
The new Fastest routing type allows users to take advantage of real-time and historical traffic information, provided by Inrix, to find the fastest route to the destination. These routes may be longer in distance but are less congested compared to the standard PC Miler Practical and Shortest routes. PC Miler|Traffic real-time, predictive and historical traffic speed data can also be used for more accurate transit times and ETAs with all routing types.
RouteSync ensures operational consistency between dispatched routes and actual routes, delivering the guidance to drive the miles that are being billed. With RouteSync, routes and preferences are sent from PC Miler in the back office directly to the latest version of ALK's CoPilot Truck navigation software in the cab. In addition to maintaining route compliance, RouteSync reduces non-revenue mileage, improves load profitability and increases driver satisfaction.
There are also new tools for interactively verifying and editing imported custom places using the map and four new toll discount programs in PC Miler|Tolls, plus time zone designations in the route entry window and the ability to generate custom road and geofencing reports.
