GMT integrates Waze and Skobbler navigation apps into Mobile Order Management
Where one organization chooses a Mobile Order Management app to improve production and durability, another organization chooses it for faster billing. For each company the advantages differ. To us that offers a source of inspiration.
That’s why we rapidly develop a transparent roadmap to for instance our iPad app for the vehicle fleet. Ongoing development in technical areas offer increasing application. Like the many enthusiastic end-users of our apps feed us with great innovative ideas and wishes in return. In the coming series of newsflashes we highlight our bulging roadmap. Today: navigation.
State of the art in navigational applications
The newest Mobile Order Management release offers the most modern navigation-application of this Mobile Order Management. The App had been integrated before with a variety of navigation Apps from the App store. In our latest version we added the “OpenStreetmaps-based” Skobbler and the social Geo App called ‘Waze’.
Skobbler is a premium point to point navigation app with an impressive user-interface and highly accurate maps that can be accessed both on- as offline. The use of the offline maps limits the datastream and could save on monthly fees. A very active community updates the the OpenStreetmap maps constantly. Through this new roads or routing-factors are often more up to date than the traditional, ‘closed’- source maps. Click for more information on Skobbler
Waze is a very interesting navigational App. A so called “Social GPS & Traffic”App. Over 40 million people use it, not just for navigation but also for it’s real-time traffic and rerouting information that may be due to jams or accidents. Between vehicles messages and locations can be shared easily and the App may show real fleet locations on a map. Users add to this success by sharing factual data and events with the community. An application of it’s time!
Experiences surmount the expectations
A number of our clients have experienced our beta release with Skobbler and Waze. the Positive reactions surmounted al our expectations! Reactions like: “This App has the most current maps I ever drove by”. Even before the official opening of the new motorways in Holland they had been fully integrated in the maps! Striking feedback we got from drivers is that the GPS module in an iPad or iPhone is much more accurate than the traditional vehicle GPS. Shown below: a demo of Waze. The fact that Google offered $1.3 billion for it, speaks for it’s potential.
‘Who is where’ is no longer of importance, but a given fact.
Besides the slick advanced navigation of Waze, this App offers a fleet monitoring option. Within the App a corporate group can be added for all vehicles and drivers. Because of this the planner can monitor the several routes real-time from the map on his screen. GMT will introduce a more advanced version of the Fleetmonitor App for companies that demand more than the standard that Waze offers. Developments on this are in progress. More about this later.
Mobile Order Management: also for the back-office!
The good news is that Mobile Order Management does not just work with our own Apps like CLEAR and AfvalRIS but can furthermore be linked with third-party Apps because of the standard Api’s and available documentation.
