Neptune, N.J. (January 7, 2015) – Marathon Data Systems (www.marathondata.com), a leading provider of Software-as-a Service (SaaS) solutions for the field service and transportation and logistics industries, today announced the addition of the Reload and Time-Windowed Traffic features to Viamente Route Planner. The new features enable Marathon to provide additional solutions for users in the transportation and logistics industry, eliminating issues that plague their service routes and businesses.
The Viamente Reload feature enables resource optimization by calculating load capacities and incorporating return reload trips into their routes. Users can include up to three types of load capacities: weight, volume and cost. Viamente Route Planner will automatically utilize each truck, loading it to full capacity while respecting and maintaining set limits. This feature significantly improves the routing process for the wholesale distribution, large appliance delivery, manufacturing industries, and others that must reload trucks throughout the day.
Time-Windowed Traffic assists the Viamente Route Planner in providing more accurate arrival times by setting up time-dependent traffic profiles. Previously, users set up traffic profiles for specific regions without designated times for peak traffic volume; with this new feature, users can now create two time windows, that will allow for variable traffic volume within a region into consideration while building routes.
“Marathon Data Systems designs every feature of Viamente Route Planner with the specific needs of our customers in mind, addressing the pain points they deal with daily,” said Chris Sullens, CEO and president of Marathon Data Systems. “The additions of the Reload and Time-Windowed Traffic features will help reduce unnecessary bottlenecks for our transportation and logistics customers, creating an overall more efficient operation and daily productivity.”
