Blue Dot and ALK Technologies Partner to Deliver Driver Workflow Innovation

Unified mobile app brings a revolutionized driver experience

Denver, Colorado – October 11, 2017 – Blue Dot and ALK Technologies® have joined forces to deliver a new innovative driver workflow solution that enables fleets to improve the driver experience, reduce driver turnover and enforce fleet-wide driver standard operating procedures.

Distinctly Different Driver Centric Mobile App

Blue Dot’s MilesAhead™ DRIVE app uses the powerful ALK® Maps mapping platform as its foundation for commercial vehicle route and map visualization. MilesAhead overlays a LEAN Six Sigma-optimized driver circle-of-service workflow that manages the wide range of driver job tasks that occur both inside and outside the cab for planned and unplanned stops alike. Implementing a comprehensive driver-centric mobile app that is distinctively different from the “grid-of-apps” design approach that is so commonplace in the market today will positively impact drivers’ lives on the road both professionally and personally, said Mick Milnark, co-founder of Blue Dot.

Seamless Tablet Application

Leveraging ALK’s suite of integration tools, Blue Dot has embedded the CoPilot Truck application directly into its MilesAhead Drive unified application for seamless access to voice-guided navigation and industry standard routing. Blue Dot is the first ALK partner to incorporate the ALK Maps platform with real-time traffic display, street-level satellite view and weather and radar overlays into a tablet application.

Capitalizing on Shared Technologies

“Teaming with an innovative company like Blue Dot accelerates our shared strategy to capitalize on and bring to market our unique and compelling technologies,” said Dan Popkin, senior vice president, enterprise solutions, ALK Technologies.  “We’re thrilled that our first project together involves delivering an unprecedented solution that combines advanced driver workflow concepts with deeply integrated routing and mapping capabilities.”

ALK Technologies Introduces PC*MILER 31, the Latest Version of its Flagship Transportation Solution

Annual software release showcases the company’s focus on driver safety and data visualization for improved decision making

 

Princeton, N.J. – July 19, 2017 – ALK Technologies, a Trimble Company and global leader in transportation technology and mobility solutions, today announced the availability of its latest version of PC*MILER truck routing, mileage and mapping software.

“Our flagship transportation solution continues to expand with the evolving needs of the industry,” said Dan Popkin, senior vice president, enterprise solutions, ALK Technologies. “More than ever, driver safety is the top of mind concern. With our continued focus on providing the industry’s most accurate routing functionality and offering new data visualization capabilities, we feel confident PC*MILER empowers dispatchers and fleet managers to make the best proactive decisions to improve driver safety and productivity.”

 

Visualization of Current Road Conditions and Wind Advisory Alerts
For any vehicle, especially trucks, slippery or snow covered roads can be incredibly dangerous. Knowing the condition of the road surface, whether it is dry, wet, or ice covered, can enable a dispatcher or fleet manager to determine the safest way to get their assets to a destination. With the new Road Conditions display directly on the map in PC*MILER, users can gauge potential impacts on the route plan and proactively route around hazardous conditions. Road conditions are designated as dry, wet/slippery, water/snow and ice/snow.

Similar to road conditions, wind threats, such as gale and hurricane force winds, can cause serious safety risks to trucks pulling lighter loads or those with higher profile trailers. Now, dispatchers and fleet managers will receive a notification in the route plan if the generated route intersects an area flagged as a Wind Alert zone.

Both road conditions and wind alerts functionalities are included with a current PC*MILER|Weather license.


Upgraded POIs with Validated Amenities for Hours of Service Planning and Safety
Having the most accurate data to schedule fueling or Hours of Service (HOS) breaks for drivers has become increasingly important for dispatchers and fleet managers. PC*MILER 31 provides authenticated amenity and truck parking information at over 7,000 rest areas, truck stops, and truck fueling stations. New locations were added and closed locations were removed to ensure accuracy for planners.

Additionally, where truck parking has been confirmed at a location, PC*MILER will now provide the total number of truck spots available, if 10 hour parking is allowed, and if parking reservations are offered.

PC*MILER runs on Microsoft Windows, IBM AS/400 (iSeries), and mainframe computers. PC*MILER is also available as a web-based application or can be seamlessly integrated with transportation and supply chain management systems.
