ALK Technologies announced Friday, Sept. 14, that TMW Systems Inc. has integrated and certified ALK’s latest versions of PC*Miler and PC*Miler|Tolls with its TMWSuite and TruckMate transportation management software solutions. The 21st annual upgrade of ALK’s routing, mileage and mapping software solution is designed to offer truck-specific toll cost calculation, significantly improved map graphics and important map database updates.
PC*Miler 21 is designed to provide fresh data and a substantial update of truck-specific restrictions based on 13-foot, 6-inch height; 80,000-pound gross weight; and widths of 96 inches — as well as 48- and 53-foot/102-inch trailer lengths. PC*Miler 21 helps companies and drivers avoid low bridge clearances, load limits, one-way roads, turn restrictions and more. Street-level updates for more than 650 U.S. counties constitute more than one million miles of updated data, including major road construction projects, ALK says.
ALK says the seamless integration of PC*Miler|Tolls 21 enables TMW customers to automate precise toll cost calculation, collection and reconciliation; by integrating these software solutions, TMW clients will have accurate truck toll costs at their fingertips. By utilizing the power of TMW’s fleet management solutions, toll costs now will become part of decisions relating to lane analysis and support, as well as extensive accounting and billing processes, ALK says. ALK’s PC*Miler runs in a Microsoft Windows environment and integrates with the latest version of TMWSuite and TruckMate Version 7.0 and 8.0.
“TMW has accelerated the pace in which they deliver meaningful solutions to the market,” says Ed Siciliano, vice president of sales and marketing for Princeton, N.J.-based ALK Technologies. “ALK is on a similar pace, and we are jointly focused on enhancing our client’s efficiency and bottom line. This enabled the prompt certification of the PC*Miler 21 products, yet another example of the solid partnership that we have developed with TMW spanning over many years.”
TMWSuite and TruckMate combine the power of a PC-based client/server system with the flexibility and familiarity of Windows to assure accurate, up-to-date information is shared across the organization, TMW says. TMW solutions all have been designed to integrate every function of the three key organizational areas, including executive office, asset management and back office; that integration of these functional areas provides the control needed to handle ever-changing market dynamics, the company says.
