Paragon Software Systems is exhibiting new routing and scheduling innovations at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show, which is being held at Birmingham’s NEC, April 9-11.
Commercial vehicle fleet operators will have the opportunity to learn about the company’s transport optimisation solutions, including an interface to Google’s UK live traffic information.
Paragon users can access Google’s live traffic information with just one click from the system Workbench.
This feature provides regularly updated, colour-coded views of traffic events on UK roads and motorways.
The new functionality also provides useful information about typical traffic conditions for specific times and days.
The Google Map link is available in all the recent versions of Paragon, including Single Depot, Multi Depot and Integrated Fleets.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to hear how Paragon’s INRIX-based GB road speed data option can improve planning accuracy by incorporating accurate road speeds captured at road link and directional level.
This offers many benefits including making the plans more acceptable to drivers and the trips more realistic and achievable, with more reliable customer delivery times.
The INRIX option also helps improve fleet utilisation and overall cost reduction
