Telogis Navigation 4.5 – Enhanced UI, improved map quality and support for Android devices
The launch of Telogis Navigation 4.5 now supports the Android operating system and features a completely redesigned and greatly enhanced user interface (UI), making Telogis Navigation even easier to use. Navigation 4.5 also features improved map quality including embedded advanced map attributes relevant to commercial fleets. Active members of the Telogis Navigation community of drivers will experience social capability upgrades and feature enhancements allowing for a closed loop with drivers.
Telogis WorkPlan 2.0 – Work order, safety and compliance management on the go
Telogis also announces Telogis WorkPlan 2.0 for iOS and Android that puts the ability to manage work orders from the field and meet federal mandates for compliance in the workers’ hands. Telogis WorkPlan cuts down on time spent preparing, planning and processing work orders. Mobile workers can also view all of their jobs as points on a map to easily visualize their days and routes, while back office teams can see the real-time location and job status of all of their workers in the field using the Telogis platform.
WorkPlan also incorporates hours of service (HOS) management features that track driving hours automatically and keep electronic logs compliant with FMCSA mandates. It also includes HOS limit warnings and automatic driver mode change to improve accuracy and let drivers concentrate on the work at hand, and not on updating their statuses.
Workers can also automate and simplify the driver vehicle inspection report (DVIR) process to meet regulations through WorkPlan. Using their mobile device verify inspections have been completed.
