From its annual Telogis Latitude business conference, Telogis Inc. is revealing its new lineup of iOS apps that bring innovative functionality and fun to the mobile business environment. The user experience (UX) enhancements to Telogis’ award-winning connected vehicle and mobile workforce apps take advantage of the unique tools and features available on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.
Apple recently announced it is working with a select group of business software and solution providers, including Telogis. Telogis software connects its customers’ vehicles, equipment and people, and automates processes that once required pens and clipboards – or worse, clunky, dash-mounted hardware. Apps such as Telogis Compliance ensures the accuracy of government-regulated driving hours (Hours of Service) and mandated vehicle inspections while Telogis Navigation provides specialized truck-specific directions that keep drivers safer and more well-informed, ultimately improving overall job satisfaction. Telogis’ ground-breaking gamification app for drivers called Telogis Coach invites friendly competition by scoring the driving behaviors, safety or productivity metrics, and also allows drivers to be identified and recognized for doing well and setting great examples for teammates.
“Working directly with Apple to build extraordinary user experiences into apps like Telogis Coach brings our customers a level of ease, familiarity and functionality that makes work on an iPad, iPhone or Apple Watch more productive and more fun,” says David Cozzens, Chief Executive Officer at Telogis. “The mission-critical nature of connecting everything in a business to the Internet of Things – vehicles, people and customers is a given, and we continue to innovate by delivering the same high-quality iOS user experience to enterprise customers that they expect on the consumer side.”
Telogis connected vehicle apps for iOS represent a mobile extension of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based platform that includes a comprehensive suite of applications that enable companies with fleet vehicles, equipment and large numbers of people who work outside the four walls to stay connected to the company in order to improve safety and productivity while identifying areas where gains in efficiency can be made.
Over the past few years, Telogis has partnered with some of the world’s largest vehicle and equipment manufacturers – including Ford, General Motors, Hino, Mack, Volvo, Isuzu and Manitowoc Cranes – to connect vehicles and equipment and the people who use them for work by building its software applications in at the factory level.
Telogis Latitude is an annual gathering of some of the world’s most well-known mobile enterprises, Telogis’ automotive OEM partners and other industry executives which is taking place this week at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA.
