N.J – ALK Technologies released the latest version of its PC Miler truck
routing, mileage and mapping software. The software features a completely
redesigned user interface for more precise arrival and delivery time estimates.
The PC Miler 27 user
interface (UI) reflects recent trends in software design that ALK says results
in more intuitive navigation of the product's vast feature set. The UI features a ribbon style design with
newly crafted descriptive icons, an accessible layout for smooth transition
between tasks, and windows that can be floated outside of the application to accommodate
It features new
Hours-of-Service compliance tools to help ensure that routes and ETAs will
accurately reflect driver's available hours. The HOS compliance tools increase
the precision of arrival and delivery time estimates and help dispatchers and
drivers comply with HOS government regulations.
Based on remaining hours, PC
Miler calculates when a driver needs to break, and indicates the designated
breaks in the detailed driving directions report, automatically updating on-duty
hours. Through the Connect interface tool, fleets are able to import or export
the drivers' remaining hours associated with specific routes.
RouteSync is a powerful
capability that ensures operational consistency between dispatched routes and
actual routes, delivering the guidance to drive the miles that are being
billed. With RouteSync, routes and preferences are sent from PC Miler in the
back office directly to the latest version of ALK's CoPilot Truck navigation
software in the cab.
In addition to maintaining
route compliance, RouteSync reduces non-revenue mileage, improves load
profitability and increases driver satisfaction.
