Rand McNally Introduces Truck Routing, Business Management Software for PC

In a move to provide professional truck drivers with affordable tools to maximize productivity and profits, Rand McNally has introduced new commercial truck routing and business management software for the PC.

Rand McNally's RouteTools software is a routing, mileage and business management solution that allows professional drivers to plan routes on truck-drivable roads, navigate using detailed route itineraries, integrate fueling stops and calculate precise mileage for accurate billing and fuel tax reporting.

"The feedback we received from professional drivers was instrumental in helping us tailor the product to their needs, equipping them with the most essential tools at an affordable cost from the company they trust to provide accurate routing," says Donna Koppensteiner, vice president of the enterprise division for Rand McNally. "They stressed the importance of truck-attributed directions and features that allow them to locate truck stops as well as the quickest routes and mileage options. These, in addition to other cost-saving features, are available in the new RouteTools software."

The software also features detailed descriptions of almost 6,000 truck stop locations and their amenities to help drivers maximize downtime. For example, drivers can ensure that an Internet connection, a truck wash, an ATM and a full-service restaurant are available in advance of an overnight stay. For drivers who use Rand McNally's Motor Carriers' Road Atlas, the software provides full-color maps and directions that reference the appropriate pages in the 2009 edition of the book.
