Version 6.0 debuts a new planning tool, dubbed Route Control, which helps mitigate the impact of time-sensitive route restrictions on routing and scheduling. This enables businesses to build routes to comply with legislation such as the London Lorry Control Scheme (LLCS) and major public events.
In addition, transport businesses looking to integrate their vehicle tracking system with routing and scheduling software can now benefit from improvements to Paragon Live, the suite of modules designed to improve planned versus actual performance. This includes an auto correction tool that will refine the exact positions of delivery locations, based on actual tracking events, to automatically improve the accuracy of plans and arrival times communicated to customers. In addition, Paragon has further increased the number of telematics systems that the software interfaces with, including the addition of partners in Singapore and China.
Users of Paragon Live that already track planned versus actual transport performance can also benefit from additional reporting functionality. KPIs such as percentage of deliveries on time can be shared across the business in an effective manner with a new automated report generation tool, providing immediate visibility of performance data and reducing administration.
“We are committed to designing innovative routing and scheduling solutions to enable transport operators to dramatically reduce costs, improve service levels and boost operational performance,” said William Salter, managing director of Paragon Software Systems. “Our proven track record based on more than 30 years of experience solving complex transport challenges, means we are best placed to respond to the latest industry developments. Version 6.0 includes more than 60 enhancements to address the evolving challenges that our customers face.”
