Telogis Releases Major Location Intelligence Platform Upgrade With Telogis Fleet 10

Next Generation of Telogis' Fleet 10 Increases Safety and Fuel Efficiency While Improving Mobile Access and Integration

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/12 -- With industry mandates to reduce fuel costs and simultaneously increase productivity and driver safety, Telogis releases Fleet 10, the industry standard for reliable and scalable fleet management, and an integral part of Telogis' comprehensive cloud-based location intelligence platform for companies that require dynamic routing, real-time work order management, navigation, telematics and mobile integration services for their mobile workforces.

"With the release of Fleet 10, Telogis continues to redefine the industry standard by taking feedback from our customers and delivering the kinds of features and functionality they require to be competitive," said Mark Wallin, vice president of product management, Telogis.

Safety, Above All

Based on customer feedback, driver saftey is one of the highest priorities for field operations. Among the new safety features in Fleet 10 is the Telogis Driver Scorecard™ option, which provides comprehensive metrics to help companies identify trends in driver behavior over time to positively impact safety. The upgrade to Fleet 10 generates new, easier-to-read reports on activities and behaviors that are critical to driver safety including hard braking, hard acceleration, excessive speeding, speeding vs. posted speed limit, seatbelt use and after-hours vehicle use, and gives drivers improved in-cab alerts in real-time to help encourage safe driving habits.

Mobility: Accessing Mission-Critical Information, Anywhere, Anytime

To meet the demands of mobile workforces and their supervisors in and out of the office, Fleet 10 includes Telogis Supervisor, a new mobile app for smartphones and tablets that allows field supervisors access to information about their teams in the field, helping them to make quicker decisions throughout the day based on location and vehicle information as plans and needs evolve.

Compatible with virtually all mobile devices, Telogis Supervisor is location aware, allowing it to show the user where they are in relation to other vehicles and assets within their organizations, and see important data such as customer information, driver data, recent stops and histories, and the vehicle that may be nearest to a specific job. Telogis Supervisor also allows users to view Geographic Information Systems (GIS) layers on their mobile devices, giving them access to information such as weather and traffic detail.

Fuel Usage Monitoring + Fuel Card Reporting = Greater Fuel Efficiency

New to Telogis Fleet 10 are next-generation fuel monitoring technologies that combine telematics and fuel card reporting, bringing greater visibility to a business' fueling activities. Fleet 10 also helps companies reduce fuel spend by providing actionable information that allows managers to identify potential fuel shrinkage by using match reports and miles-per-gallon (mpg) data. Earlier this year Telogis announced its first integrated fuel card partnership and the introduction of the Telogis Universal Premium Fleet Card powered by FleetCor. Using the fuel card in conjunction with Fleet 10 makes reporting more streamlined and accurate, and helps reduce unauthorized fuel card use with the ultimate goal of driving down total fuel expense.

Above and beyond: Telogis Fleet 10's Advanced Features

The latest version of Telogis Fleet 10 also offers the level of advanced functionality that customers have come to expect from the Telogis platform, including real-time traffic and weather, advanced compliance reporting, extensive vehicle histories and personnel management functions, asset management, ad-hoc reporting, custom GIS layers, satellite street views, geofencing and asset security features, etc.

Additional new feature sets that are available within the Telogis Fleet 10 product include:

  • Seamless integration with the industry's leading enterprise infrastructure systems allowing operations managers to easily share reports created in the Telogis platforms throughout their organizations
  • Advanced temperature monitoring and reporting supported by diagnostics, hardware and sensor upgrades
  • Enterprise dashboards with simple drill-downs, graphs and trends, plus the ability to custom-design reports that help define areas of progress and those that require additional training or attention
  • Availability of Telogis Live for storms and war rooms, extending visibility of the Telogis platform to partners and third party vendors during emergency response scenarios

Cloud Expo Breaking News
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
