MicroAnalytics Inc has released its 3.0 version of the TruckStops routing and scheduling software. This new version offers enhanced itinerary generating capabilities in addition to the ability to output route data via ODBC.
TruckStops' interface to Microsoft's MapPoint product has been enhanced to allow users to seamlessly access turn-by-turn driving directions, turn-by-turn maps, and street-level distance calculations from within the TruckStops user interface. Maps and driving directions can be printed from within the interface or e-mailed to other parties.
ODBC functionality has been enhanced to allow users to not only bring data into the TruckStops system using ODBC, but now to also output route information using ODBC communication. Users can bypass the data export process and have their data save out to another ODBC-compliant database quickly and easily.
TruckStops, available for Windows 95/98/ME/XP/NT/00, can be used either dynamically, for scheduling vehicles on routes that change daily, or strategically, for planning and updating fixed delivery routes.
