Telogis Meets the Needs of Commercial Drivers with Launch of Navigation 5

Extension of Telogis’ award-winning SaaS-based platform helps drivers arrive more safely through traffic, bad weather, complex routes and more

ORLANDO, Fla. – ATA Management Conference and Exhibitions – Oct. 21, 2013 — Whether hauling goods cross-country or servicing customers within a local community, Telogis meets the specific needs of commercial drivers while improving driver safety and productivity with the launch of Telogis Navigation 5. All-new, driver-oriented features make Telogis Navigation 5 easier to use and give companies access to the most accurate and timely road-condition information in the industry. Telogis Navigation 5 (also sold through partners as NaviGo, powered by Telogis) will be available this fall as an extension of Telogis’ award-winning location intelligence platform.

“When navigating a Class 8 vehicle through traffic, bad weather, complex interchanges and final-mile approaches, drivers want know that they have a simple means of accessing the most accurate road data and truck-safe routes,” said Newth Morris, president, Telogis Route and Navigation. “We worked closely with customers on Navigation 5 to meet the complex needs of today’s drivers and integrate the features they wanted most. The enhancements we’ve made will help drivers maximize safety, productivity and uptime while driving down out-of-route miles and fuel waste.”

The all-new Telogis Navigation 5 features:

  • New look and feel: All-new user interface (UI) including major enhancements to style, color scheme, menus and ease-of-use
  • Junction view: Shows drivers a clearer vision of complex maneuvers in order to more safely navigate through freeway/highway exits, interchanges and junctions
  • Upgraded community-based navigation: Addition of two-way communication to close the loop with drivers who provide feedback on road conditions and routes
  • Highway signage: Detailed, realistic highway signs that mirror actual signage within the UI help drivers make safer key directional decisions
  • Driver alerts: Drivers will now be informed of road status information including speed, weather, traffic, terrain, sharp turns and other critical safety-related events

Mobile enterprises that run Telogis Navigation automatically connect their drivers to a community-based network of more than 120,000 individual drivers who continually provide real-time feedback on road conditions, road restrictions and truck-safe routes, making the data provided by Telogis Navigation some of the most accurate and timely in the industry. With sophisticated text-to-speech capabilities and customizable directions for specific yards, approaches and events, drivers who use Telogis Navigation are often less distracted and arrive more safely. Back-office teams can also provide drivers with information customized to a specific job including notes, contact information and arrival instructions. Telogis provides a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based platform for companies that require dynamic routing, real-time work order management, telematics, mobile integration services and commercial navigation for their mobile workforces.
