Sygic Launches Professional GPS Navigation on Geotab’s Marketplace for Efficient Route Planning

 

London, December 10, 2021: Geotab Inc., a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, has announced a partnership with Sygic, a global leader in GPS navigation solutions, to provide customers with offline GPS navigation and route planning for trucks and light commercial vehicles.

 

Sygic Professional Navigation takes vehicle attributes into account and chooses routes that are compliant with the fleet’s vehicle types and cargo. Along with routing based on factors like height, weight, the number of axles, and other truck parameters, Sygic Professional Navigation also respects emission zones and HAZMAT restrictions. Additional features, such as lane assistant, night mode, disabled left turns and others, helps protect drivers on the road and avoid risky situations.

The navigation currently guides more than 2,000 fleets and more than 3 million professional drivers worldwide from logistics, emergency, construction, oil & mining, municipal services, and other sectors. 

 

“Always finding the right route, working with a correct estimated time of arrival (ETA), and maintaining safety are vital components to logistics success. By giving drivers the correct tools to do their work more autonomously, fleets can minimise mistakes, remove communication bottlenecks and relieve fleet managers, which ultimately translates into improving overall operations,” said Miroslav Remecky, Chief Commercial Officer at Sygic

 

“We are excited and proud to be recognised as a valued addition to the Geotab Marketplace. We play well with others, and our navigation truly shines when it can be leveraged as a part of larger fleet management and telematics systems. Our inclusion on the Marketplace will enable us to support more fleets in optimising their workflows,” added Remecky.

 

The Geotab Marketplace offers an extensive ecosystem of business-focused applications and add-ons. With the addition of Sygic Professional Navigation on the Geotab Marketplace, over 40,000 Geotab customers worldwide will have access to a solution that offers GPS navigation designed specifically with fleets in mind and respecting their case-by-case requirements.

 

Stefano Peduzzi, Vice President, Technology Solutions & Operations, Europe at Geotab says: “We are always looking for technology partners that increase the value of our core products and Sygic provides an offline GPS solution that is perfectly suited for fleets managing trucks and other large commercial vehicles. This is another step forward in our strategy to provide the best platform and ecosystem in the logistics and transportation vertical in Europe: offline GPS navigation with routing based on vehicle attributes adds another tool for the fleet manager to effectively manage and plan their resources and increases the safety of drivers and vehicles. We are pleased that we can offer this additional resource on our Geotab Marketplace portal.”
