ALK Technologies Inc. is partnering with Innovative Computing Corp. (ICC) on new usages for ALK's PC*MILER transportation software. Innovative Computing has integrated ALK's Multi-Version Switch (MVS) into its Innovative Enterprise Software (IES) management system for fleets. MVS is an enhanced function of PC*MILER|Connect, easy to use integration software that interfaces PC*MILER routing and mileage functionality with leading and custom transportation and logistics management software systems.
The integrated MVS tool enables users to work with multiple PC*MILER versions on the same server. When accessing ALK's MVS tool via IES, Innovative customers can assign specific PC*MILER versions to individual shippers according to that shipper's contract. IES will then use the correct PC*MILER version to calculate that shipper's billing miles. Before MVS, older versions had to run in separate computer environments, with separate maintenance costs and setup fees. MVS removes that complication and streamlines bidding and billing processes. When ALK releases an update to PC*MILER, the new version does not have to replace previous versions. The integrated version of ALK's Multi- Version Switch supports PC*MILER 14 through the current release of PC*MILER 20.
ALK's MVS runs in a Windows environment and integrates with ICC's Innovative Enterprise Software via IBM iSeries (AS/400) midrange computers. The combined software is also available via the Internet through Innovative's IES Access and IES Access Plus systems.
