Paragon to drive route planning innovation under Microsoft programme
Paragon Software Systems has extended its membership of the Microsoft Premier Support for Developers programme to ensure its routing and scheduling solutions are using the latest Windows technology.
The scheme provides access to a network of more than 40 development experts for expert advice and support on technologies including parallel processing, Azure deployment and three-tier architecture.
The move will provide route planning benefits for transport operators through faster processing speeds and software usability improvements. Over the coming months, Paragon will use the programme to support the deployment of Waypoint Mapping into the Azure cloud environment, which will enable the better sharing of routing data with integrated vehicle tracking solutions.
“This partnership is part of our strategy to be at the forefront of route planning software development and technology leadership, so we can maximise the performance of our customers’ transport operations,” said William Salter, managing director of Paragon Software Systems. “Having access to Microsoft’s expertise and support provides total confidence that we are making the right decisions throughout the development lifecycle. We are also providing peace of mind to a growing number of transport operations worldwide that our routing and scheduling solutions take advantage of the latest software innovations and are evolving in line with technology advances.”
Paragon is also an accredited Microsoft Gold Partner, meaning it has been certified by the technology company and proven to have the requisite number of Microsoft certified professionals developing its software products.
