Network Design and Site Location

There are many specialized solutions available to do complex network analysis studies. However, they all tend to be very expensive, not to mention complicated to use.

The vast majority of network studies are actually rather simple and for those, Radical Tools will generate solutions faster and better, yet at a fraction of the price of the competition. For more complex studies, several of our customers are using Radical Tools to do accurate rating and distance calculations as input to other tools, as well as refining the output from these tools.

Radical Logistics has several templates available that can be used to start your own network design model.
