PRINCETON, N.J. — ALK Technologies announced a partnership with Innovative Computing, which has integrated ALKs Multi-Version Switch (MVS) into its Innovative Enterprise Software (IES) management system for fleets.
The integrated MVS tool enables PC*MILER users to work with multiple PC*MILER versions on the same server.
Accessing ALKs MVS tool via IES, Innovative customers can assign specific PC*MILER versions to individual shippers according to that shippers contract. IES will then use the correct PC*MILER version to calculate that shippers billing miles. Through this new MVS integration, Innovatives customers will enjoy the flexibility of matching PC*MILER versions to specific shippers requirements.
“Innovative has a prestigious set of clients who will benefit greatly from this ALK MVS integration,” said Ed Siciliano, vice-president, sales and marketing at ALK. “This integrated solution will provide an immediate benefit for many joint customers by allowing carriers to bill using whichever version of PC*MILER is called for in a contract.”
Before MVS, older versions had to run in separate computer environments, with separate maintenance costs and setup fees. MVS removes that complication and streamlines bidding and billing processes.
Innovative’s core goal is to make our carrier customers more efficient, stated Ernie Betancourt, CEO at Innovative. We have a long history of integrating with ALKs PC*MILER products because they help us accomplish that mission. We believe that the integration of ALKs Multi-Version Switch continues toward the same outcome.
When ALK releases an update to PC*MILER, the new version does not have to replace previous versions. ALKs MVS enables transportation, logistics and manufacturing companies to maintain two or more versions of PC*MILER software on a single computer or network server.
The integrated version of ALKs MVS supports PC*MILER 14 through the current release of PC*MILER 20.
