Telogis announced a number of new products on Wed., Oct. 28, during its annual Telogis Latitude conference that capitalize on its built-in vehicle connectivity and mobile applications.
Telogis founders Jason Koch and Newth Morris introduced the following new extensions and products during the event:
Telogis Logbook was built to support commercial drivers, mobile sales reps and supervisors and also people in the field that drive a vehicle for personal and business use. The new app makes it simple to classify mileage as either personal or business and allow the addition of labels to organize trips by business purpose.
Telogis Equipment for AEMP
Mobile businesses that operate heavy equipment can use this new feature to have visibility of their assets – vehicles, yellow iron and people – on one login with engine hours and other data coming from the OEM via the standard set by American Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP).
Telogis Maintenance Connect
Telogis Maintenance Connect loops service centers into the connected ecosystem to maximize uptime and prevent breakdowns by sending Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and other mission-critical vehicle data directly to the designated service center.
Companies can leverage connected data by importing standard maintenance schedules from the vehicle OEMs and sharing vehicle information with the right resources.
Telogis LiveETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) is a mobile application that provides real-time ETA updates for the end customers of delivery and service companies as an extension of the Telogis platform. Telogis LiveETA gives mobile enterprise customers the ability to confirm the scheduled appointment time, provide the current location, name and a photo (if desired) of the en-route driver, while providing updates on any significant changes in the ETA.
Telogis Appointment allows customers to query and choose appointment booking windows for new jobs that fit into existing routes. The new versions being announced at Latitude include Telogis Appointment as an API, a back-office application as well as a customizable mobile application for customers’ end customers.
Telogis Navigation – Global Edition
Telogis Navigation Global Edition (“Telogis Nav GE”) is the latest application version in the Telogis suite of commercial navigation products. Available on Android and iOS, Telogis Nav GE supports North American and now various international markets, providing an enhanced navigation experience through tight integration into Telogis Sites to enable site-specific navigation.
The Telogis Status app is designed for both iOS and Android devices and integrates to work in concert with existing Telogis work order management tools. Telogis Status provides the people who are managing teams in the field with a clear view of time spent on a given job and the individual tasks that make up each job. This level of detail helps to streamline billing, budgeting and payroll by understanding which team members are doing what and for how long, Morris said.
