Paragon links to Google’s live traffic information

Jul 09, 2012
Paragon Software Systems’ routing and scheduling software now links to Google’s live traffic information with just one click from the system Workbench.
The new feature provides regularly updated, colour-coded views of traffic events on UK roads and motorways. The new functionality also provides useful information about typical traffic conditions for specific times and days.


 
“We developed the Google Maps link in response to customer requests for an easy to use and accurate online mapping tool. A click of the mouse enables them to see traffic events that could affect their delivery schedules, allowing them to respond accordingly. This gives them greater control over their transport operation and can improve customer service,” said William Salter, Paragon’s Managing Director.
 
“By linking seamlessly to Google Maps, the software provides familiar turn-by-turn routing instructions and can also verify customer sites on the Paragon planned routes by using street level views and satellite images to show the actual physical locations. This is particularly useful where customers may share postcodes with other businesses,” he added.
 
The Google Map link is available in all the recent versions of Paragon, including Single Depot, Multi Depot and Integrated Fleets.
