ALK Technologies and Drivewyze have announced a collaboration to integrate their mobile app technologies for drivers. The technologies include ALK’s CoPilot Truck, navigation app and Drivewyze’s PreClear mobile-based weigh station bypass service.
“The Drivewyze and CoPilot Truck apps already complement each other very well, enabling drivers to enjoy both navigation and bypass services directly on a single smartphone or tablet, saving them time and money. By integrating the two applications, Drivewyze and CoPilot Truck users can enjoy an even more seamless experience when the apps are used in tandem, offering truck and fleet operators even more benefits,” said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze. “We’re excited about what’s in store for CoPilot Truck app users.”
In addition to the integration between their apps, both companies have agreed to work together on marketing initiatives.
The CoPilot Truck app offers voice-guided, truck-specific GPS navigation for professional drivers though iPhone, iPad and Android devices via the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Drivewyze PreClear, which leverages cellular networks and the Internet to add transponder-like functionality to mobile devices, is a subscription-based weigh station bypass service available on Android and iOS-based tablets or smartphones. The bypass service starts at $15.75 per vehicle per month with free trial offers and volume discounts available.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with such an innovative company in the transportation space,” said David Quin, vice president at ALK Technologies. “The Drivewyze PreClear app provides significant value to professional drivers and we’re eager to share their technology with our customers to help them safely move more freight and be successful in their jobs.”
