PC*MILER’s street-level routing, mapping, multi-version switch and hazmat routing modules have also been tested and approved.
“We are committed to providing comprehensive integration capabilities with the industry’s premier mileage vendor, ALK. This certification provides assurance that our LoadMaster and PowerBroker customers can take advantage of the latest technologies available,” said Robert Brothers, manager of product development for McLeod Software.
“In collaboration with McLeod, we are focused on providing our mutual customer base with seamlessly integrated transportation solutions to effectively manage operating costs and increase productivity,” said Dan Popkin, senior vice president, enterprise solutions, ALK Technologies. “With the certification of PC*MILER 28 and integration of ALK Maps earlier this year, McLeod customers have access to ALK’s complete suite of industry standard routing, mileage, mapping and visualization tools.”
In addition to routing and map data, PC*MILER 28 introduces routing for medium-duty trucks, customization tools including New Custom Route Profiles to enable users to save sets of frequently used routing preferences and vehicle dimensions for future use, saving crucial back office planning time and support for time-based routing restrictions and route warnings.
