Launch of Telogis Miles Meets Transportation Industry Demand for Real-Time, Accurate Mileage Calculations
New solution sets the transportation industry standard by providing actual miles driven for more accurate billing and other business purposes.
DANA POINT, Calif. – Telogis Latitude – May 22, 2013 — Telogis sets the new transportation industry standard for mileage calculation accuracy with Telogis Miles, an extension of its comprehensive, cloud-based location intelligence platform. Telogis Miles works by generating real-time mileage that matches actual in-cab miles driven when used in conjunction with the Telogis platform. Telogis Miles gives fleets the ability to determine and manage against actual costs, and drive profitability based on the variances of miles driven.
For years, Telogis Navigation has been providing the nation’s largest fleets with truck-specific commercial navigation and is considered the industry standard. When used in concert with the Telogis platform, Telogis Miles allows customers to leverage the most accurate and current data in the industry, supported by a network of nearly 110,000 drivers who provide feedback on the best truck-specific routes and other information in real time.
“With Telogis Miles, transportation industry carriers now have the ability to derive the most precise mileage information in order to be able to increase profitability and efficiency in the supply chain,” said Newth Morris, co-founder and president, Telogis Route and Navigation. “Previously, customers relied on antiquated systems or rough estimates to apply to their plans for fueling, ratings and even their contracts. With Telogis Miles, they have the accuracy and visibility they need to determine real-time distances.”
Telogis Miles is specifically designed for back office planners and resources associated with all types of routing calculation. Telogis Miles automatically takes into consideration the configuration defined by the fleet, including routing preferences and road modifiers, and leverages the full flexibility of the Telogis platform in managing the entire routing experience – from the first mile, last mile and everything in between.
Customers can choose to use the Telogis Miles application programming interface (API) or user interface, which both leverage the power of the Telogis cloud to calculate miles quickly and efficiently for real-time use.
