Paragon Software Systems, a software company focused on vehicle routing and scheduling, announced an upgrade of its routing and scheduling optimization software. Paragon Version 5.6 includes more than 50 enhancements and functionality improvements to help fleets cut operating costs, improve asset utilization and enhance customer service, the company says.
“Paragon’s software development team has responded to client requests, industry changes and technological developments to deliver significant enhancements and improvements to our vehicle routing and scheduling solutions,” says Phil Ingham, support director at Paragon. “Fleets can now use these capabilities to cut costs, make better use of their resources and improve service levels. This ongoing development based on real-world requirements is one reason why Paragon is experiencing continued expansion in the U.S. market and bringing its advanced solution to a growing number of companies.”
To find more efficient routing solutions, optimization processes in Paragon Version 5.6 now include enhanced automatic routing capabilities, which allow users to target fleet reduction as a cost-cutting objective, the company says; new options include the ability to stop the automatic routing process and review the current result, and it now is possible to store job specific macros, filters, tables and reports together for easier access and use.
Mapping enhancements in the latest version of Paragon’s software are designed to allow the Workbench user interface to display information on a Google Map automatically for a fast, accurate and familiar visual reference.
Enhanced reporting capabilities include the ability to export data to an SQL database automatically and the option to add new trip keywords, the company says; the latest version also incorporates Fleet Controller and Resource Manager functionality improvements.
