ALK Technologies Inc and TMW Systems announced that industry-standard PC*MILER 26 is now tested and approved for use with multiple TMW Systems products: IDSC ExpertFuel, IDSC TripAlert, IDSC MatchAdvice, Appian DirectRoute, Innovative IES, Access and Access Plus, TMWSuite, and TruckMate. In addition, PC*MILER|Tolls 26 has also been tested and approved for use with TMWSuite, IDSC ExpertFuel, IDSC TripAlert, and IDSC MatchAdvice.
PC*MILER 26 can also be delivered as a hosted systems offering through TMW Cloud Services when used with any of the referenced TMW products. TMW Cloud Services offers enterprise-class application hosting for TMW users that can reduce IT risk and infrastructure investments, ensure system scalability, and streamline technology deployments.
Additionally, TMW has begun integration of RouteSync, a new capability of PC*MILER 26. RouteSync acts as the crucial link between the planned route in the back office and the navigated route in the cab — delivering guidance to drive the miles that are being paid. With RouteSync, dispatchers can send PC*MILER optimized routes directly to drivers running CoPilot Truck on an on-board device, smartphone, or tablet.
ALK's integration tools provide expanded functionality for PC*MILER 26 with TMW's transportation management and optimization software. These tools include PC*MILER|Connect, PC*MILER|Mapping, and Multi-Version Switch.
In addition to RouteSync functionality, PC*MILER 26 now includes new interactive mapping features and Fastest Routing based on real-time, predictive traffic speed data. Enhancements in Version 26 include the addition of newly constructed roads along with their exit interchanges. Throughout Canada, the accuracy of street-level data in major metropolitan areas has been improved.
