BRIDGE CITY, Tex. — ProMiles Software Development Corporation’s (PSDC) updates to ProMiles XF confirms that software companies are exploring new paths focused on performance-based applications.
ProMiles XF contains a new modular application platform as well as a surprising number of new functions to make the product cost effective to a wide audience. The modular approach will allow current users of either ProMiles Fuel Management or ProMiles Fuel Tax applications the ability to access the ProMiles Mileage Guide from within the same program.
"We really started this version over 10 years ago," according to PSDC president of sales and marketing, Tony Stroncheck. "While we will be marketing ProMiles XF as an update of our existing Mileage and Routing software, some of the changes make it more like a whole new application rather than an update to existing programs."
Now included is Fuel Purchase Optimization, which PSDC claims, saves 4 to 8 cents per gallon.
A new look enhances the legibility of the maps that now include Mexico as well as the U.S. and Canada. Toolbar functionality has been advanced to allow the user to change routing method while viewing the map.
Other add-on features for the mileage guide include U. S. street-level mapping, the ability to import locations from other programs, Canadian Postal Codes, expanded Canadian City Names and customizable Trip Sheets.
The modular applications available from PSDC can also increase the functionality of the mileage guide. Custom fuel networks created with the ProMiles Fuel Management program are available for use in the mileage guide including any discounts available for consideration when using Fuel Purchase Optimization.
Trips calculated using the mileage guide can have additional information such as dates, odometer readings and expenses added using the trip sheet feature and then sent to the fuel tax reporting program. A data section common to these applications allows for the management of equipment, drivers, clients, expenses and more.
PSDC has involved several companies ranging from owner/operators to large fleets in the testing of the new applications.
