DPS International(http://www.dps-int.com) of Halesowen, United Kingdom, has launched the most comprehensive update ever to the LogiX routing and scheduling software. LogiX5 is the culmination of several decades of software development and successful deployment by hundreds of companies worldwide.
Gary Sharpe, General Manager Logistics Systems with DPS, says that this latest release has been built based on several criteria, including: feedback from many LogiX users; the latest developments in software development technology; requirements of companies who want to improve their environmental performance and reduce emissions; availability of new hardware tools for the logistics operations, including handhelds and mobiles; the recent partnership agreement between DPS and TomTom; availability of more detailed and relevant map data.
DPS Managing Director Paul Palmer, who founded DPS more than 25 year ago, said that one of the most significant improvements is in the automatic scheduling algorithm. “The algorithm has been improved with every new release and this time there is a significant advance combined with improved parameter management and features.
“Our customers have recognised the importance of the environment and the role they have to play in order to reduce emissions, in particular CO2 - you can now set up CO2 measures against your vehicle types and report CO2 figures, including savings. To make it easier for transport managers to control these emissions we have improved the optimisation progress bars – and these now show CO2 savings”.
To improve the user friendly interface, DPS has made further improvements to icons throughout LogiX, including more information on the status of routes and orders plus better selectable icons for routes, products and zones.
Other improvements in LogiX5 include: new parameters for the start, turn around and end times at depots; improvements to the loading bays facility; new status levels designed for real time re-scheduling; better visibility of order and route warnings; Quick Address 6 integration – giving improved display and search capability.
There is improved matrix building for street level maps, with the ability to manage road bans or speed restrictions and improved itinerary with better statistics and the ability to display individual maps for each call at street level.
