Paragon exhibits routing and scheduling at the CV Show 2014

Paragon Software Systems will demonstrate its latest transport optimisation solution at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show.

The show will give fleet operators an opportunity to learn how Paragon’s routing and scheduling solution can significantly improve efficiencies and reduce transport costs.  This year’s CV Show will be taking place from Tuesday 29th April to Thursday 1st May at the NEC Birmingham.

At this year’s CV Show, visitors will have the opportunity to actually see Paragon’s truck routing software in action, and see how it can be used for daily route optimisation, strategic analysis, fixed route planning and home delivery scheduling. 
Coupled with Paragon’s low-bridge avoidance HERE mapping option, the solution eliminates the need to manually input these physical limitations. This streamlines the production of accurate, feasible and cost-effective transport schedules, which can be further refined by incorporating INRIX-based road speed data.  The solution can also interface with Google’s map display which provides useful information about traffic conditions affecting planned routes.
Visitors will also be able to see how linking the Paragon solution to the fleet’s tracking system gives managers real-time vehicle performance visibility and enables schedule adjustments to be made if a vehicle encounters an unforeseen problem. It also enables fleet managers to compare planned versus actual schedules in terms of both route and arrival/departure times. Repeated deviations on a particular leg of a route may indicate a known obstacle, such as a school zone, or consistently longer wait times at a particular site. Such repeated deviations can be taken into account for future schedules.
“Paragon remains focused on its commitment to developing and implementing solutions that support the changing needs of today’s transport operators,” said William Salter, Managing Director, Paragon Software Systems.
