Sep 27, 2011 11:18 AM
ALK Technologies Inc announced the integration and certification of PC*MILER 25 and PC*MILER|Tolls 25 by strategic alliance partner TMW Systems to ensure users can take advantage of the enhancements.
TMW has certified the new PC*MILER 25 release for its Optimization Software products IDSC ExpertFuel, IDSC TripAlert, and IDSC MatchAdvice, Appian Logistics, TruckMate, and TMWSuite. Certification to other TMW Systems Enterprise Transportation Software is in process.
With new time-based features and enhancements, PC*MILER’s 25th annual edition makes it simple to define a departure or arrival date and time to calculate more realistic transit times. PC*MILER 25 also has critical map data updates such as truck restrictions and truck-specific toll costs.
PC*MILER 25 can also be delivered as a hosted offering through TMW Managed Services when integrated with the IDSC Optimization, TL2000, TMWSuite, TruckMate, and Innovative IES platforms. TMW Managed Services is designed to reduce IT risk and infrastructure investments, ensure system scalability, and streamline technology deployments.
PC*MILER 25 includes 220,000 new and updated truck restrictions and allowances in addition to more than 3.78 million road-specific attributes that affect truck travel.
Other features include:
•An expanded capability to calculate toll costs based on time of day travel for 31 discount toll programs in the United States and Canada.
•Map tools to create geofences—When a route crosses a geofence, PC*MILER 25 displays a warning in the route itinerary or avoids the geofenced area altogether, based on user preferences.
•Real-time and historical traffic speeds to calculate optimal routes, more precise transit times, and ETAs.
This traffic speed data is included free of charge in PC*MILER 25 until the release of PC*MILER 26 in 2012.
