Wireless Fleet Management Powered by NAVTEQ® Map Data
CHICAGO, Nov. 8 -- NAVTEQ (NYSE:NVT), a leading global provider of digital map data for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, announced today that it has been selected by WebTech Wireless to supply NAVTEQ Transport truck attributes for Quadrant, WebTech Wireless' fleet management system. Quadrant provides users with GPS-based location information in real-time for efficient fleet management.
Powered by NAVTEQ map data, Quadrant enables fleet managers and dispatchers to access detailed fleet operational data, both real-time and historical. Offered on a scaleable platform that allows for a wide range of future enhancements, Quadrant provides a real-time map interface for reporting and messaging activities that result in lower administration costs while increasing productivity. Fleet managers are able to connect their fleet to back-office applications providing instant access to data that can reduce unnecessary paperwork.
With the inclusion of NAVTEQ Transport, fleet managers can also route trucks away from low-clearance areas and streets in which trucks cannot maneuver, helping to reduce incidents and minimize out-of-route miles. NAVTEQ Transport provides road attributes that directly affect truck routing such as legal restrictions, physical restrictions and preferred truck routes.
"WebTech Wireless needs a mapping solution that provides detailed and up-to-date coverage with key information such as truck routing attributes," said Cameron Fraser, CTO and co-founder, WebTech Wireless. "We will continue to work with top industry suppliers such as NAVTEQ to help us remain a leader in the vehicle tracking industry."
"NAVTEQ's selection as the map of choice for WebTech Wireless highlights the value of accurate map data and industry-specific datasets," said Roy Kolstad, vice president and general manager - Enterprise Americas, NAVTEQ. "We look forward to supporting WebTech Wireless as they continue to bring innovative fleet solutions to their customers."
WebTech Wireless will be featuring Quadrant, powered by NAVTEQ map data, at the 2007 Logistics and Fleet Management Show from November 12 through November 13, 2007 at the Chicago City Center Hotel, Booth #19.
