ALK Technologies, Inc., a global provider of GeoLogistics and navigation software announced that ALK Maps and PC Miler Web Services will be integrated with McLeod Software’s Load Master and PowerBroker products. McLeod’s LoadMaster provides dispatch software for asset based trucking companies and PowerBroker offers a fully integrated end-to-end brokerage operations management system.
ALK says its PC Miler Web Services and ALK Maps offer a fully customizable, cloud-based interactive mapping platform with high-quality map visualization with precise geocoding and routing functionality for enterprise applications. Technology providers can easily integrate these products with a variety of platforms, it says.
LoadMaster and PowerBroker integrated with ALK Maps and PC Miler Web Services can provide enhanced interactive street-level maps with satellite imagery, weather overlays, real-time traffic and speed data with enhanced ETAs, and hazardous materials routing functionality. ALK Maps and PC Miler Web Services offer these capabilities via a flexible software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.
“We are pleased to support ALK’s SaaS-based solutions that give our customers more options for configuring their mileage functions within PowerBroker and LoadMaster,” said Robert Brothers, manager of product development for McLeod Software. “The new mapping capabilities can provide McLeod Software customers the ability to use ALK Maps for interactive street level visualization. We will continue to invest in the best integration solutions for our customers with the ALK family of products.”
ALK Maps is powered by the PC Miler routing, mileage and mapping engine with commercial truck restrictions. Hazmat-specific road classes and routing categories, bridge heights and clearances, weight limits and allowances are also provided as well as one-way road designations, left-hand and dangerous turn restrictions, and urban road classifications.
