GRAPEVINE, TX. ALK Technologies said its ALK Maps and PC Miler Web Services products will be integrated with McLeod Software’s Load Master and PowerBroker products. The ALK products offer a fully customizable cloud-based interactive mapping platform with map visualization and geocoding and routing functionality for enterprise applications. ALK made the announcement March 24 at the Truckload Carriers Assn. annual meeting in Dallas.

LoadMaster and PowerBroker integrated with ALK Maps and PC MILER Web Services can provide enhanced mapping with satellite imagery, weather overlays, real-time traffic and speed data with enhanced ETAs, and hazardous materials routing functionality via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, ALK says. PC Miler’s set of commercial truck restrictions in North America offers users hazmat-specific road classes and routing categories; bridge heights and clearances; weight limits and allowances;  one-way road designations; left-hand and dangerous turn restrictions; and urban road classifications.

“The new mapping capabilities can provide McLeod Software customers the ability to use ALK Maps for interactive street level visualization,” said Robert Brothers, manager of product development for McLeod Software. “We will continue to invest in the best integration solutions for our customers with the ALK family of products.”

“We are pleased to further strengthen our long-term relationship with McLeod Software,” said Dan Popkin, senior vice president of enterprise solutions at ALK Technologies.  “This combination can significantly enhance the user experience with high-performance mapping and routing.  Our mutual customers can benefit from improved operational consistency and productivity.”
