Paragon Software Systems Announces National Street Level Routing & Scheduling in China

Accurate Mapping Data Allows Optimized Routes & Schedules for Transport Operations

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Paragon Software Systems, Inc., a leader in vehicle routing and scheduling optimization solutions, announces launching national street level mapping for routing vehicles in mainland China. The mapping allows users of the Paragon software to create optimized routes and schedules for their transport operations in China using accurate data. The street level mapping capability reinforces Paragon's commitment to delivering transport optimization solutions to customers worldwide wherever they may be operating.

"Paragon software is now ready for routing and scheduling optimization in China at the same level of detail and complexity available to users elsewhere in the world. We believe we are one of the first companies to have overcome the technical and legal challenges to provide a fully functional, fully featured transport planning solution for customers in China. We have already installed Paragon in Chinese with the fully licensed China map for our first customer in Shanghai," says William Salter, President & CEO of Paragon Software Systems, Inc.

This breakthrough follows Paragon's recent announcement about implementing Simplified Chinese language into its software. Paragon software is Unicode compliant, which makes it possible to translate it into any language and enables its use anywhere in the world. This includes languages that use special characters such as those in Simplified Chinese, the written language for mainland China.

"Our unique Chinese offering confirms our commitment to providing our customers with the logistics software they need wherever they may be worldwide. We already offer a wide range of language options, including American English, French, German, Spanish, Hungarian and Croatian. Users simply select their preferred language from within the Paragon Workbench. This is particularly useful in centrally deployed software environments where it is possible for different users to access a single Paragon software installation concurrently in their own language," added William Salter.
