Masternaut adds live tracking to Paragon scheduling

1 November, 2005

Masternaut’s satellite tracking-over-the-web service now connects to Paragon routing and scheduling software, allowing transport operators to compare actual vehicle movements with the planned schedule and route. For the many transport operators using Paragon Software Systems’ routing and scheduling solutions, this development will further boost fleet utilisation and efficiency.

Through Paragon's Fleet Controller module, live data from Masternaut's satellite tracking service is picked up automatically by the Paragon software. This gives transport planners an accurate up-to-date picture of the execution of the day's transport schedule.

The system alerts transport planners if a vehicle has fallen behind schedule, missed a call or deviated significantly from the planned route. If a driver is likely to miss a delivery time window, the problem can be dealt with before it has a knock on effect on the rest of the schedule. Fleet Controller can also send automatic text messages or email alerts to customers when their delivery is a given number of minutes away.

Using the Masternaut-generated activity log enables Fleet Controller to provide a complete picture of vehicle movements at the end of each day. This allows comparison of actual activity against the planned schedules, automatically generating daily performance and exception reports. These show missed time windows, unloading delays, excess mileage and/or time and where less time was spent than planned. By identifying operational issues in this way planning parameters can be refined for continuous improvement.

"We realise that Paragon excels in routing and scheduling and the company retains a clear lead in the market. By integrating to Paragon through their off-the-shelf Fleet Controller interface, operators can add real value to their investment in systems and working together, real savings in operating costs will become evident very quickly" says Martin Port, Managing Director of Masternaut.
