PC*MILER|BatchPro is a batch processing add-on created for use with PC*MILER. BatchPro gives PC*MILER the power and flexibility to handle tasks such as generating distance totals and cost estimates for large volumes of origin and destination records.
Instead of entering and running routes one-by-one as you normally would in PC*MILER, you can use BatchPro to automatically process a large database of origin and destination records created using an electronic spreadsheet program, a database management program, or a text file editor.
How BatchPro Works
- The name of your input file is entered in BatchPro.
- When processing is initiated, BatchPro produces report files with the same name and different extensions.
- These output files are placed in the directory in which the input file is located.
BatchPro can be licensed for use on a LAN. See your sales agent or call ALK for details.
