ALK Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of geo-logistics software and data products, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with International Telematics Corporation.
International Telematics will resell ALK's CoPilot Truck Professional navigation software in North America, fully integrated with its ibright vehicle and trailer telematics system. The ibright suite offers operators an advanced but easy-to-use, fully converged monitoring and management tool for tractors, straight trucks, dry trailers, refrigerated trailers and other assets on one single platform.
ALK's CoPilot Truck Professional provides truck-specific GPS navigation, offering an intuitive interface with spoken turn-by-turn directions and non-distracting guidance displays. It calculates efficient truck routing based on vehicle profile information, routing parameters and load type, including hazardous materials.
CoPilot Truck Professional operates on the wide range of in-vehicle mobile display terminals, both tethered and portable, that are used in conjunction with the sophisticated ibright telematics computer. Information from third party routing and dispatch platforms, integrated into the ibright Enterprise platform, allow dynamic routing and manifest information to be sent to the vehicle.
"International Telematics is delighted to have integrated the ibright telematics solution with CoPilot Truck Professional," said Craig Marris, Executive Vice President of International Telematics. "Our customers now have a platform that combines one of the most advanced telematics technologies with the most advanced trucking-attribute navigation system available. Integrating ALK's CoPilot Truck Professional introduces more operational visibility and intelligence in the vehicle, allowing International Telematics to provide superior returns for our customers."
"ALK Technologies is pleased to welcome International Telematics as a reseller of CoPilot Truck Professional," said Dan Popkin, Vice President Business Development - Enterprise Solutions Worldwide, ALK Technologies. "This global partnership reflects our continuing commitment to the cross-platform integration of navigation technology with mobile workforce management and telematics solutions."
