Paragon launches V6 software with new tools and improved reporting

Published:  04 November, 2016

Paragon has launched version 6.0 of its transport management software, featuring changes to both the Planning and Paragon Live modules.

Version 6.0 features the planning tool Route Control, which helps mitigate the impact of time-sensitive route restrictions on routing and scheduling. This makes it possible to build routes to comply with legislation, such as the London Lorry Control Scheme (LLCS) and major public events, without spending significant time on manual planning.

Changes to Paragon Live transport management software include an auto correction tool that refines the exact positions of delivery locations based on actual tracking, so improving the accuracy of plans and arrival times communicated to customers.

In addition, Paragon has further increased the number of telematics systems with which the software interfaces, including the addition of partners in Singapore and China.

And Paragon users will have additional reporting functionality. KPIs, such as percentage of deliveries on time, can be shared across the business with a new automated report generation tool. This increases visibility of performance data and reduces administration time.

William Salter, managing director of Paragon Software System, said: ‘Version 6.0 includes more than 60 enhancements to address the evolving challenges that our customers face.

‘It is essential that our customers can rely on Paragon’s routing and scheduling software to drive continuous improvement within their transport operations.

‘By investing one-third of our revenue in R&D each year, our experienced team of developers is able to build innovative functionality that helps them create more accurate transport plans and deliver a superior experience to our clients.

‘As a result, we have seen strong growth in the first half of 2016. Demand for advanced routing and scheduling solutions both in the UK and internationally has led to a 70 per cent increase in the number of organisations that have purchased our software compared to the same period last year.’
