Users of ALK Technologies’ PC*Miler Web Services and SMC3’s RateWare XL can now get a complete range of mileage, transit times, and rate content from a single point of access through a new interface integration agreement between the companies. SMC3 is a freight transportation software developer.
“This seamless interface provides customers the ability to increase the speed and efficiency of these applications as well,” said Craig Fiander, vp-marketing for PC*Miler solutions. “It ensures customers are always ‘current’ with automatic map data and truck-specific routing updates."
RateWare XL provides less-than-truckload (LTL), density and linear rates via software-as-a-service (SaaS). The integration allows users to generate highly accurate mileage data from ALK’s PC*MILER product.
“In the past, the process of combining ALK and SMC3 content for our customers was somewhat time-consuming,” said Warren Patterson, SMC3 senior vp-product strategy and development. “Now, as long as the SMC3 customer is a licensed ALK customer, SMC3 will access the mileage data they need and, based on the mileage, use our rating engine to quickly determine the rates.”
The new interface will also allow software developers to write one web service.
