Pros: Pretty easy to use. Moving the routes around is fairly easy. Plugging in stops on a route is very simple and then it will order then for you. If you need to change the order, it's simple to do.

Cons: Customizing pricing and routes can get a little confusing. It's not impossible or even infuriating. Just not as simple as you may like it to be.

Overall: Decent program. The thing that keeps us coming back is the ability to save routes that we use weekly and not have to continuously run them over and over again and it also saves the pricing per mile. If it weren't for that, we might just use Google maps to do the same thing for free.

we use this program daily and rely on it every day to tract the miles of our drivers

Pros: super easy to use and change directions or add and remove a stop or city while entering in route for mileage and hours for the drive. Absolutely the best program out there.

Cons: Have not really found any issues except very expensive to update when you have an older version of the program.

Overall: benefits would be perfect estimates for route to take shows shortest distance and hours plus you can add a different route to show on the map and print it for the driver as a guide.

Pros: easy to use. no instructions needed, every thing straight forward and right there on one screen no flipping back and forth for the miles and hours you need

Overall: expensive program if you have to buy it alone without a package or program with it installed on already. would use this alone without any program if less expensive

Pros: The thing I like most about PC Miler is the integration into Microsoft Excel which makes it possible to easily calculate the distance between two locations within spreadsheet using formulas.
