Paragon Software Systems has implemented its route optimization software on the Geotab Marketplace, combing the services of both companies into one system.
Fleet managers who are already conducting routing using Paragon can now view vehicle data from Geotab’s telematics system within Paragon’s Route Execution Software to see, in real-time, when routes deviate from the schedule, according to the company.
This allows users – in dispatch, customer service, or route planning – to proactively alert customers about potential issues, or adjust the schedule to avoid impacting customer deliveries. By feeding Geotab vehicle data into Paragon, fleet managers can compare planned versus actual route performance in real-time, gaining visibility of the entire fleet’s progress throughout the day.
A custom interface between the Paragon and Geotab systems also allows users to import ELD data into Paragon, according to the companies. As a result, fleet operators can easily compare drivers’ legally available hours with actual hours driven, reducing the risk of hours of service (HOS) violations. Critically, it also means that transportation planners can use the up-to-date availability of each individual driver during the planning process.
