ESRI has released the latest version of its routing and scheduling tool for fleet management.
ArcLogistics 9.3 includes new usability features and capabilities to help organizations build efficient routes and schedules for their fleets, the company said.
'With rising fuel costs and growing concern for the environment, ArcLogistics 9.3 is a viable solution for any organization that has a fleet,' said Jack Dangermond, ESRI's president. 'ArcLogistics provides businesses and governments with the necessary tools to maximize the performance of their vehicle operations while saving fuel, reducing costs and minimizing their carbon footprints.'
With ArcLogistics, dispatchers can create strict time windows and increase operating efficiency by assigning orders to vehicles based on actual drive times instead of measuring distance and ordering stops 'as the crow flies,' ESRI officials said.
ArcLogistics is built on ESRI's ArcGIS platform as an ArcGIS Engine application. It stores routing projects in a geodatabase that can hold huge amounts of data, the company said.
