PC*Miller is not alone in its race as a logistic routing software. With high competition, it has become utmost necessary for PC* Miller to have a strong standing. There are other tools in the industry that offer similar features. However, with micro-managing your routing, PC*Miller makes sure you do not fall under or overestimate your routes & times.
  • Functionality: One of the greatest competitors of PC*Miller is Google maps. With Google maps on all phones, it is more accessible. Google maps are easily available on all devices, and they do have higher location support. The regions covered by Google maps are from all around the world. However, Google maps are not specifically designed for the logistics industry. This makes Google Maps not a great option as users cannot plan their routes, manage logistics, and estimate accuracy.

    Moreover, Google maps cannot be integrated with organizations inner logistic networks, making it hard to track. With rich feature support of PC*Miller like routing, reporting, & routing restrictions, it is more suitable for the routing industry.

    Another greatest competitor of PC*Miller is Fleetio, which offers a wide variety of features, including inspection management, inventory management, motor pool, and tire management, along with other basic & advanced routing features. Although PC*Miller is not as feature-rich, it offers API integration support for new locations, which can help you get any locations onboard. Want to add new locations to the route? Integrate the API, and you are ready to move.

    Omnitracs also offers a tough competition to PC*Miller. With tracking & routing features, it also offers a wide variety of vehicle management features. Omnitracs also offers integrations with other partners, but they are lesser as compared to PC*Miller.
  • Scalability: When it comes to scalability, Fleetio and PC*Miller offer a SaaS-based solution with a payment option per user. So, if your business even grows to thousands of employees, the PC* Miller will be able to support it. However, Google maps, on the other hand, are scalable, but given the limitation of its features, it is not suitable for large-scale businesses. Nevertheless, just like PC*Miller Omnitracs is also scalable, and it offers features and user-based pricing.
  • Level of Services: PC* Miller 24/7 support and videos, feature sheets, and user guides to help the user through the application. Well, Google maps do not offer such support, but there are a few training videos online. However, Fleetio does offer complete onboarding support, blogs, user guides, and other resources to the customers, but they are not available for 24/7 support. The support for Omnitracs is as great as PC*Miller as it offers 24/7 support with sufficient documentation and user guides.
