  • MPMileCharter v3.0 Released Today

    We have just released a major new version of our popular MileCharter product.
    Version 3.0 is a major re-write that leverages Microsoft's .NET framework. It has also been rebranded "MPMileCharter" in line with our other products.

    New features include:
    • Smoother handling of Excel & the user interface, resulting in better response times
    • Support for text file output to tab separated and comma separated files
    • Ability to set all of MapPoint's routing options through the MPMileCharter user interface
    • Natural sort for pushpins sorts numeric identifiers correctly
    • Ability to hide Excel during processing
    • Should support future versions of Windows
    Benefits of using MPMileCharter included:
    • Ability to calculate route distances, travel times, and estimated costs all at the same time.
    • Easily calculate atlas-style tables between all locations within one group.
    • Calculate tables with different source and destination groups.
    • Supports sophisticated and flexible route cost calculations using rate tables.
    • Find the shortest routes, fastest routes, or straight line distances.
    • Find the 'closest only' destinations.
    • Triangular and square mileage charts to match your required style.
    • Ability to output accurate location coordinates at the same time as the mileage table.
    • Travel times can include or exclude automatic rest stops and overnight stops.

    The ability to compute "closest locations" (eg. "find the 3 closest sales offices to each of my customers within 30 minutes drive time"); and a Pause/Restart capability are only available in the Professional License.
