Paragon Software Systems Inc, a provider of vehicle routing and scheduling optimization solutions, has launched the latest version of its advanced transport system.

Version 6.0 will include a number of enhancements across both the Planning and Paragon Live modules to provide high-quality transport plans and operational insight. More than 1,100 transport businesses in 59 nations already use Paragon’s software.

Version 6.0 will be the first Paragon system to feature the groundbreaking planning tool Route Control, which helps mitigate the impact of time-sensitive route restrictions on routing and scheduling. This software functionality makes it possible to build routes that comply with time- and day-related local, state and national regulations, and road closures resulting from major public events. This will allow transport planners to cut the time spent on manual planning, avoid unnecessary operational delays and lower the risk of incurring costly fines.

Transport businesses looking to integrate their vehicle tracking system with routing and scheduling software can now benefit from improvements to Paragon Live, the suite of modules designed to improve planned versus actual performance. This includes an auto correction tool that will refine the exact positions of delivery locations, based on actual tracking events, to automatically improve accuracy of plans and arrival times communicated. Paragon has further increased the number of telematics systems the software interfaces with, including the addition of partners in Singapore and China.

Users of Paragon Live that already track planned versus actual transport performance will now be able to benefit from additional reporting functionality. KPIs such as percentage of deliveries on time can be shared across the business in an effective manner with a new automated report generation tool. This will provide immediate visibility of performance data beyond the transport office, as well as reducing administration by streamlining back-office functions.
