Paragon has launched the latest version of its advanced routing and scheduling software with enhancements to both the Planning and Paragon Live modules.
Over 1,100 transport businesses in 59 countries already use Paragon’s software, this latest update takes advantage of the company’s expertise within the marketplace to help deliver continuous operational improvements.
“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,” explains William Salter, managing director of Paragon Software Systems.
Version 6.0 will be the first Paragon system to feature the planning tool Route Control, which helps mitigate the impact of time-sensitive route restrictions on routing and scheduling. This functionality makes it possible to build routes to comply with legislation such as the London Lorry Control Scheme (LLCS) and major public events. This will allow transport planners to cut the time spent on manual planning, avoid unnecessary operational delays, and lower the risk of incurring costly fines.
Improvements to Paragon Live 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.
