We’re thrilled to announce our first-ever integration of ALK Maps and our Transportation Solutions suite with Cargas Systems, a company known for its cloud accounting, ERP & CRM software, consulting, and application development. The integration includes four of our core products:
- ALK®Maps with PC*MILER® Web Services for high-quality map and route visualization with industry-specific commercial routing and restrictions;
- CoPilot® TruckTM for safe, accurate, load-specific navigation; and
- RouteSync® for sending planned routes in the back office directly to CoPilot Truck in the vehicle for route compliance
The integration is within Cargas’ Energy software, specifically designed for fuel delivery and HVAC service companies. ALK provided Cargas a specialized solution that would not only provide industry-specific routing, navigation and map visualization capabilities, but also allowed for communication between its Route Builder and Real-Time Mobile applications.
“Our suite of solutions provides the consistency between planned and driven routes that is vital to business success.” – ALK’s Senior Vice President, Enterprise Solutions, Dan Popkin
The ALK Advantage
ALK Maps, powered by PC*MILER, is the foundation of the solution, providing map visualization for real time vehicle and asset tracking, as well as commercial and hazardous materials routing vital to their business planning.
Cargas also integrated CoPilot Truck, which provides voice-guided turn-by-turn directions based on vehicle dimensions and load. If a driver accidentally strays from the planned route, CoPilot Truck automatically re-calculates and safety guides them back to the route.
True route compliance is achieved with the final addition, RouteSync. With RouteSync, planned routes created in Route Builder are sent directly to drivers’ Real Time Mobile Application running CoPilot Truck. This piece is critical, as it produces operational consistency between dispatch and navigation , while reducing out-of-route mileage.
In an industry that thrives and depends on the latest technology innovation, our goal is to provide cohesive solutions that help your fleet achieve operational consistency, efficiency, and productivity.
