ALK Technologies Inc., a developer of routing, mileage, and mapping software, has released version 22 of ALK|FleetSuite. The latest release harnesses PC-Miler 22 map data to provide critical visibility and control of fleet operations, including in-cab truck-specific directions in real time for drivers, street-level fleet location displays for managers, and arrival time notification for customers.
ALK|FleetSuite 22 has been updated with the latest street-level data, including information provided by state and local municipalities. Significant improvements were made across the United States and Canada, including an additional 391,500 miles of truckrestricted roadway for a total of 853,500 miles. The release also includes 1.8 million weight restrictions and allowances and features more than 2,800 new height restrictions. Updates include critical changes in Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, West Virginia, North Dakota, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
Using ALK|FleetSuite Directions, drivers generate truck-specific turn-by-turn driving directions to their final destination. These directions can be transmitted with varying degrees of detail to conserve bandwidth and minimize messaging costs. Even at the lowest level of detail, ALK's directions convey the necessary information in a visual format drivers can understand at a glance.
ALK|FleetSuite Mapping allows managers to pinpoint the exact location of their fleet vehicles based on real-time latitude/longitude information. They can zoom out to any selected point of view, from a city, a county, a state, a region, or virtually any location in North America.
While a truck is en route, ALK|FleetSuite Estimated Time of Arrival/Out of Route can issue an alert when a truck deviates by a user-defined distance from the assigned route. Similarly, it can maintain an ongoing estimate of a truck's arrival time at a specific destination and dynamically generate a revised ETA as conditions change.
ALK|FleetSuite's modules can be licensed separately, so fleets can find the solution that best fits their needs.
