PeopleNet and Maptuit have expanded their partnership with additional navigation technologies aimed at making drivers’ jobs easier and more efficient. “This unique integration between NaviGo, the dispatch system, and our Pacos Geofencing and Automated Messaging application takes driver efficiency and accuracy to a new level,” said Matt Voda, PeopleNet vp-product management. “Eliminating manual data entry makes life easier for the driver and avoids costs caused by inaccurate addresses.”
This integration combines dispatch, geofencing and in-cab navigation features along with Maptuit’s NaviGo fuel enhancements as well as hazardous materials routing. NaviGo fuel includes the option to search for the best fuel stations within a given radius or along a designated route.
Improved workflow for the driver speeds delivery time and cuts wasted miles and fuel. Instead of having the driver enter addresses for each stop, the automated workflow captures the actual arrival time at each stop and prompts the driver to be routed to the next stop through in-cab navigation. The driver’s stop information is automatically sent to NaviGo, and initiation of the next route is automated as the driver leaves a location, all without any driver interaction.
“PeopleNet’s unique integration with NaviGo not only offers a more efficient in-cab navigation process, but also a more accurate one by eliminating the potential for driver entry of erroneous addresses,” said Luke Wachtel, Maptuit executive vp-sales and marketing. “Since mistakes may cause liability and safety issues and out-of-route miles, this is a significant advancement.”
