“We are pleased to support ALK’s SaaS-based solutions that give our customers more options for configuring their mileage functions within PowerBroker and LoadMaster. The new mapping capabilities can provide McLeod Software customers the ability to use ALK Maps for interactive street level visualization. We will continue to invest in the best integration solutions for our customers with the ALK family of products”

Robert Brothers, Manager of Product Development for McLeod Software

“We've been using PC*MILER Web Services to automatically calculate truck miles between origins and destinations on posted loads and to also allow our members to run their own routes for accurate truck miles and directions. Beyond calculating mileages, our members also want to visually see the route. This is where the recent addition of ALK Maps has really taken the spotlight. Our members can now get a fast and accurate visual interpretation of the route on an interactive map allowing them to zoom in or out along the route, drag and drop to re-route and much more. The maps are used to calculate truck miles on all loads posted to give carriers, shippers and brokers the most trusted and accurate miles in the industry.”

“The additional features to enable truckers to capture pertinent documents on the road and have them immediately indexing into the TMS will enable our customers to reduce administrative costs and improve the speed at which they process invoices, which will have a positive impact on cash flow.”
(The version 2 release of MC2 includes additional features such as signature capture for electronic proof of delivery, document capture using the smart phone’s camera, improved driver to dispatcher messaging, and an interface with ALK® Maps to display truck routing, mapping, and driving directions.)

Michael Thomas, CEO of Trinium Technologies

“What used to be a manual cumbersome process of referring to a plotted map and invoking Google Maps for research has been completely automated with this new solution based around ALK Maps. This saves us an average of 15 minutes for each look-up that is performed. On an average during the course of the day, each user is able to save almost 2 hours of time.”
