Paragon expands routeing system

Paragon has launched version 5.0 of its routeing and scheduling software and says it has made 59 separate improvements to its functionality. These include: automatic routeing enhancements, which take into account different types of resources during the planning process; and regional and directional rush hour congestion functionality which allows different geographic regions to be created with specific road speed reduction profiles by time of day.

It has also added a number of new modules designed to provide a complete routeing, optimisation, transport management and execution system.
The most notable of these is Resource Manager, the company says. This enables companies using Paragon to optimise daily fleet operations in addition to managing the transport resources and allocations necessary to operate such optimised schedules. In addition, Navman Wireless vehicle tracking is now included as part of Paragon’s Fleet Controller software solutions, allowing users to intelligently track their vehicles in real time.

These options are integrated with Paragon’s routeing and scheduling optimisation and intelligence, ensuring that any changes in transport management decisions, driver allocations or route sequences have full visibility in terms of transport viability and optimisation.

Paragon has also updated its logo and brand image, to reflect its broader capability.

“As a company, Paragon remains 100 per cent committed to the transport optimisation and execution software market, with more than 25 years’ experience and 400+ customers of all sizes using over 1,500 systems around the world,” said Paragon managing director, Will Salter.
