Paragon Software Systems has introduced resource management functionality to its routing and scheduling software.
The new functionality allows fleet operators to track drivers’ vacations, shift patterns and hours worked, automatically factoring all of this into transport plans, Paragon says.
The new resource management functionality from Paragon will allow fleet managers to:
- Manage vacation entitlement and approval to avoid too many drivers taking vacation at the same time;
- Automatically generate advanced shift schedules to provide forward visibility and control;
- Comply with Hours of Service limits at an individual driver level;
- Track individual driver hours accumulated to avoid overtime.
Paragon says fleet managers are also able to create their own list of driver skills such as qualified gas fitter or carpenter and the appropriate tools required for each job. Paragon’s route optimization software will then ensure that calls are only allocated to appropriately-skilled drivers.
