ALK Technologies Inc. has developed version 25 of its PC-MILER Web Services application. The Premium option includes new time-based features and enhancements, such as transit times based on specific time of day and week, in order to improve load planning and hours-of-service compliance. The traffic-speed data will be included free of charge in PC-MILER 25, until the release of PC-MILER 26 in 2012. Through ALK's partnership with INRIX, an international provider of traffic information and driving services, users can see real-time traffic maps as well as access traffic forecasts for more than 1 million miles of roads across the U.S. and Canada. Developed in Microsoft .NET and packaged as a Web service, the new tool provides a standardized means of embedding truck-specific routes, mileage, maps and reports of PC-MILER with third-party Web services, .NET or Web-based applications. PC-MILER Web Services 25 offers quarterly map, toll cost and routing updates. It also provides access to multiple version capabilities. Previously announced map data features and enhancements of PC-MILER 25 include 220,000 new and updated truck restrictions and allowances, in addition to more than 3.74 million road-specific attributes that affect truck travel.
