They've experienced situations where route planning applications failed because the software didn't have all of the capabilities the vendor promised. Or because it lacked the flexibility to adapt as the needs of their business changed. We created this program so customers could achieve the results they expected despite the poor performance of other vendors.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 5, 2006
GEOCOMtms, a global provider of fleet management software for local pickup and delivery operations, announced today a replacement program that allows companies to exchange route planning applications from other vendors for A.MAZE Planning™. This patent pending solution, a core component of the company's A.MAZE Fleet Management platform, automates the task of building loads, sequencing and scheduling stops, and designing local routes. Under the replacement program, GEOCOMtms will grant new customers one license of A.MAZE Planning for every license they own of a competing product.
"Some fleet operators are hesitant to invest in new technology because they feel like they've been burned in the past," said Michael Nark, president and chief executive officer of GEOCOMtms. "They've experienced situations where route planning applications failed because the software didn't have all of the capabilities the vendor promised. Or because it lacked the flexibility to adapt as the needs of their business changed. We created this program so customers could achieve the results they expected despite the poor performance of other vendors."
For local pickup and delivery operations, route planning is crucial. Without the right plan, dispatchers can spend all day fighting fires and dealing with upset customers. But developing local pickup and delivery routes can be challenging. A.MAZE Planning was specifically designed for this environment, so it doesn't have the limitations software from other vendors often does. With sophisticated optimization technology, the system can process and analyze a virtually limitless number of order / sequence / timing / vehicle / routing combinations.
A.MAZE Planning delivers results that are efficient, that dispatchers trust, and that save time.
- Accelerates the planning cycle
- Reduces transportation costs and driver overtime
- Works in static, daily, and real-time planning environments
- Obeys time windows and other customer service commitments
- Supports multiple vehicle types and configurations
- Recognizes vehicle capacity constraints
- Creates "doable" routes that drivers will follow
- Allows "what if analysis" for creating profitable bids
The software replacement offer is available to companies in the US and Canada which operate local, single day pickup and delivery routes. Qualified participants must have purchased and installed route planning software from a third-party vendor or reseller within the previous five years. GEOCOMtms will provide one or more software licenses for A.MAZE Planning at no cost in exchange for an equal number of licenses from a competitive route planning software provider. Software implementation and annual maintenance are not included in this offer.
