to obtain a free Developer Express License including email support. This offer is only valid for companies with own applications and products in these fields.

"This initiative has been launched because we experienced that many applications in this field are still lacking from optimization functionalities. One reason is that many developers are afraid of dealing with complex mutltiple vehicle routing algorithms as this requires in depth experience with meta heuristics, which is of course not the primary focus of modern software engineers", Vincent Mayer says, (DNA's responsible engineer for application integration)

Therefore DNA has designed a SDK that offers optimization functionalities with an easy to use API. Worldwide, DNA partners rely on DNA's scheduling and rapid decisioning technology to bring their customers outstanding solutions for automatic taskforce planning whithin one single piece of software.
