Company

Vnomics Corp. is a leader in next-generation fleet management solutions for commercial vehicles. Vnomics works with leading trucking fleets and private carriers to maximize driver, vehicle, and equipment performance, delivering significant cost-savings and operational efficiency. Our real-time driver coaching and data analysis have helped customers across industries achieve record-high fuel economy, improved safety records, and more satisfied drivers.

Challenges

According to ATRI (American Transportation Research Institute) when trucks are using commercial GPS that do not account for truck-specific routes, there’s an increase in bridge strikes and overall reduced efficiency. The truck drivers weren’t simply taking the most direct routes.

With the aim to reduce extra miles, Vnomics was asked by commercial trucking customers for hands-free navigation accounting for truck-specific routes and allowing to communicate drop-off/pick-up locations with their drivers.

How Sygic helped

Sygic Truck Navigation was the first choice navigation software for Vnomics. It is offline turn-by-turn navigation using specially defined maps with truck attributes automatically avoiding roads not suitable for truck or specific cargo.

Powerful SDK extension of Sygic Truck Navigation with API interface allowed easy integration into Vnomics in-cab system. The ability to send an address from the dispatch office directly to the truck based navigation improved the efficiency of Vnomic`s commercial trucking customers.

Besides Truck attributes that allows drivers to take most efficient routes, Sygic Truck Navigation contributed to the fleet`s safety with Speed limit indicator and clearly delivered directions through display and audio.

The results

“With Sygic navigation, our customers have improved efficiency and response time. With Sygic’s truck-specific navigation delivered through our system, one of our fuel hauler customers was able to find the necessary routes and provide emergency relief to areas affected by Hurricane Sandy.”

Sygic allowed easy integration into our system and offers remarkable customer service.

“With Sygic navigation, our customers have improved efficiency and response time.”
