Rand McNally has released an application programming interface (API) that allows carriers to integrate their transportation management systems with Rand McNally's IntelliRoute Fuel, IntelliRoute Lane Rates, and IntelliRoute Streets software modules. This allows subscribers to benefit from all the modules while still using their existing transportation management systems. The API acts as a translator that allows whatever program a trucking company uses to manage its fleet to talk to the Rand McNally software. Users can then pull information into their systems seamlessly.
The IntelliRoute suite offers customers a base product of mileage, routing and mapping software. The software is available as a single-user, networked or online product and offers users the option to purchase each module separately to meet their companies' needs. Each module works seamlessly with the IntelliRoute base product and may be purchased and updated on the Web. Rand McNally frequently updates IntelliRoute data throughout the year to keep the solution current, reliable and comprehensive.
The IntelliRoute Fuel module incorporates data needed to estimate and plan routes based on fuel prices, helping fleet owners and managers minimize fuel costs and increase profits. Users gain access to fuel location pricing information, optimal fuel trip planning, and fuel query services. The IntelliRoute Lane Rates module estimates the industry average or market rate for any given lane (the route between two locations that carriers provide to freight-moving services). Estimated rates are based on more than 10 million actual freight bills and are refreshed monthly. The IntelliRoute Streets module creates address-to-address routes and calculates mileages.
