Paragon Software Systems has opened a new technology centre at its head office in Dorking.
Designed to showcase the latest developments in Paragon's routing and scheduling optimisation software, the facility - the first of its kind in this sector - provides a high tech environment where Paragon can model customers’ operations to help optimise savings at every step of the delivery journey.
The Paragon technology centre is split into different zones designed for demonstrations, testing, one-to-one training and business reviews. Tracking and telematics software, as well as Paragon’s electronic point of delivery software, fleXipod, are available to view on a wide range of handheld devices.
"We are delighted to be opening the doors on this new customer facility," said William Salter, managing director.
"With more and more customers wanting to integrate our routing and optimisation software with telematics and tracking, we can use the Technology Centre to show how everything links up in real time and delivers real-world benefits."
Paragon continues to invest one-third of its turnover in product development and research. The Technology Centre will enable Paragon to show customers how the growing functionality of Paragon software can meet their evolving routing and scheduling requirements, whether it is to enhance their planning process, reduce fuel costs, improve mobile worker utilisation or meet the challenge of home delivery and maintenance services.
"The Paragon team has a huge knowledge base built up over decades of operating in the fleet and transport industry, and the thing that sets us apart is our ability to share this expertise with our customers," added Salter.
"The investment in this facility demonstrates a continued commitment to our customers. We look forward to welcoming them and our industry partners to the new Technology Centre."
