Paragon Software Systems has launched national street level mapping for routing vehicles in mainland China. This breakthrough follows Paragon’s announcement about implementing simplified Chinese into its software last autumn.

The mapping allows users of the Paragon routing software to create optimised routes and schedules for their transport operations in China using accurate data. The development reinforces Paragon’s commitment to delivering transport optimisation solutions to customers worldwide wherever they may be operating.

“Paragon software is now ready for routing and scheduling optimisation 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, Managing Director, Paragon Software Systems.

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.”
