Telogis is changing the way truck drivers navigate the world-wide road network with Telogis Navigation. Telogis’ newest in-cab navigation companion features a large moving map format and a simple to use touch screen interface that lets drivers do what they do best: drive their trucks to their final destination while avoiding dead-end streets, dangerous U-turns, and truck restrictions.
Telogis Navigation is the only real-time, SaaS solution that leverages the industry’s best-in-class routing, chosen by the nation’s largest long haul fleets, and the nation’s most up-to-date truck specific dynamic road network. As a result, Telogis Navigation realizes significant cost savings from the reduction of accidents alone.
Custom NavigationUsing the most up-to-date data in the industry, generate truck specific directions based specifically on fleet preferences and location details.
Community of DriversTelogis Navigation receives real-time road network feedback from our community of over 100,000 professional drivers. Our road data is constantly improving because of this feedback, keeping your drivers safe.
Hybrid ModelThe Telogis Navigation solution takes advantage of the best of both on-board and off-board technologies. We are able to combine the speed and reliability of on-board computing with the unlimited power, customizability and dynamic data of off-board servers.
Navigation Manager – Back Office Portal ToolsNavigation Manager gives you the tools to customize and manage your fleet. Because the portal tools access the Telogis server farm, we are able to manage your customized road network, along with your routing preferences on a real-time basis.
Dispatch IntegrationTelogis Navigation has an optional dispatch screen that can be set up to display a driver’s current dispatch stops. The dispatch screen is integrated with a fleet’s host system through a simple API.
SafetyTelogis Navigation customers report on average a 30% reduction in accidents. Research has shown that a predominance of accidents occur when a driver is lost and does not have accurate directions.
ROITelogis Navigation customers report an average of 10% reduction in out of route miles. Saving fuel, avoiding accidents and running smarter routes are all factors in driving a strong navigation ROI.
Dynamic ContentThe roads, weather, construction and fuel prices change every day on the routes that our fleets cover. A static system that serves these drivers will not suffice. Telogis Navigation is founded on the principle of dynamic data and thus providing current useful information to our drivers.
Flexible User InterfaceTelogis Navigation uses a SaaS model; therefore we can push data from our cloud and update the menu system on the navigation client, allowing you to customize the options available to your drivers.
Improves Driver Experience
Telogis Navigation provides highly interactive on-board navigation with text-to-speech directions, graphical maneuver indicators and optimal map views. Features such as “Route Preview” and “Safety View” offer users alternative options for viewing route information.
Navigation Manager – Portal Tools for Customized Navigation
Navigation Manager gives you the tools to customize and manage your fleet. Because the portal tools access the Telogis server farm, we are able to manage your customized road network, along with your routing preferences on a real-time basis. The portal also provides tools that give you the ability to view all transactions being generated by Telogis Navigation users. Features include custom points of interest, road modifiers, polygon yard creation, ability to review routes and usage report generation.
Telogis Navigation has an optional dispatch screen that can be set up to display a driver’s current dispatch stops. The dispatch screen is integrated with a fleet’s host system through a simple API. Once a dispatch is added the stops in the dispatch are available to the driver on the Dispatch screen where any stop can be selected and used for a route.
Driver Community – Feedback Loop
Here at Telogis, we believe we have the best algorithms and the best data, but that we can always be better. The universe we work in is dynamic, whether it be data or technology, and that is why we choose to listen and respond continuously. That is why we rely so heavily on feedback from our customers and why we adopted our hybrid approach. Every single one of our clients has a feedback loop where the user can provide us with their input. Our company is dedicated to responding to all the feedback whether it be suggestions for improvement to the user interface, advice on a better route, or notifications of new attributes.
Dynamic data creating the most up-to-date road network available today
Because our routes are generated using map data hosted on our servers, we can leverage the most up-to-date data available at any given moment. Coupled with our existing driver community, The Telogis data group maintains the most accurate and up-to-date picture of the North American road network in the world. Only Telogis can leverage its rapidly expanding professional driver community of over 100,000 drivers to make updates to our road network every day. As a result, Telogis boasts the largest and most frequently updated collection of truck attributes, i.e. restrictions such as low bridges, for US and Canada in the market today.
Customized navigation for the unique needs of your fleet
Because we host our algorithm and our map data, there is virtually no limit to how much we can customize our solution to meet each fleet’s unique needs. Not only can we configure our routing algorithm extensively, we can also work with a customer to customize their fuel data, POI data, customer data and their map data. It is important to understand how dynamic our unique data structure is. Because we use a cost based algorithm for routing, we can take a much more nuanced approach to the map data. As an example, there are 1,000′s of road segments that are officially STAA approved truck routes that Telogis has either restricted or discouraged as a result of feedback from our users. It isn’t enough to know whether a road is truck legal, it is also important to be aware that the road might be windy, have no shoulder, be narrow, 2-way and not well lit. All of these factors may cause us to place a modifier on that road that discourages our algorithm from choosing that road unless it is either absolutely necessary or far too costly to avoid.
Hybrid navigation combines the best of both worlds
Our navigation solution takes advantage of the best of both on-board and off-board technologies. We are able to combine the speed and reliability of on-board computing with the unlimited power, customizability and dynamic data of off-board severs. Telogis’ proprietary cost-based routing algorithms are the most sophisticated and most accurate on the market. Unlike most other routing engines in the industry, which incorporate a hierarchical structure and thereby typically achieve only a 85% accuracy rate, The Telogis cost-based multivariate algorithm enjoys a 99% success rate. Our weighting mechanism “prioritizes” roads based on user-specific parameters (e.g., driver preferences) and real-time, server-side information (e.g., inclement weather or road closures) to determine the optimal, easy-to-follow route.
