Paragon has updated its routing and scheduling software with enhanced functionality to provide fleets with indepth visibility on real-world fuel usage.
The latest enhancement to Paragon’s Route Execution module means fuel data can be taken directly from an approved, CANbus-integrated vehicle tracking system and analysed against predicted consumption figures, calculated during the planning process, to identify where route planning can be improved.
Transport managers will be able to use the added insight to give immediate fuel efficiency feedback to drivers as well as generate bespoke usage reports, based on credible data.
Richard Street, development director at Paragon Software Systems, said: “Many telematics solutions can capture precise fuel usage, but these systems have no access to any realistic estimations regarding how a vehicle should be performing. By taking a scientific approach to calculating consumption, our software is able to accurately predict usage levels by individual route and then compare with the actual performance to pinpoint exactly where inefficiencies are occurring.
“The ability to use accurate weight data at both the transport planning and review stages provides an invaluable opportunity to take control of fuel management to reduce transport costs and carbon emissions.”
