SAN DIEGO, Calif. – American Trucking Associations (ATA) Conference – Oct. 5, 2014 – Leveraging the built-in hardware and connectivity platform provided by Mack Trucks, Telogis will offer compliance, commercial-grade navigation and fleet management solutions that can be accessed over the air by Mack customers via tablet or smartphone.
Telogis provides a SaaS-based platform of connected vehicle technologies and services for companies that require advanced telematics, route optimization, truck-specific navigation, work order management and mobile applications to manage their drivers, trucks, assets and jobs more cost-effectively, efficiently and safely.
Utilizing Mack GuardDog Connect hardware and data, Mack Fleet Management Services delivers factory-installed hardware that eliminates the need for aftermarket hardware purchases and installation costs.

“Leveraging the Mack GuardDog Connect telematics solution platform, Mack customers now have the easiest path to comprehensive fleet management, easy-to-use compliance apps and truck-specific navigation from Telogis,” said Susan Heystee, executive vice president, worldwide sales at Telogis. “Mack fleets of any size will experience near-immediate ROI by maximizing uptime and running safer, more cost-effective and productive fleets.”
Telogis Compliance and Navigation enable drivers to better manage and meet Hours of Service (HOS) requirements and complete Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR). Telogis Navigation also delivers dynamically updated road conditions collected from an existing community of more than 140,000 commercial drivers in North America, enabling Mack customers to avoid potential delays and helping to increase on-time deliveries.
Telogis Fleet is a comprehensive, scalable fleet management solution that can be activated over the air.
