Sygic Partners with Samsara to Enable GPS Navigation Solutions on the Connected Operations Cloud
Sygic, a global leader in navigation solutions, announced today an integration with Samsara, the pioneer of the Connected Operations Cloud, to optimize fleet operations and enhance the driver experience.
Samsara is uniquely positioned to transform the world of physical operations. Using the Connected Operations Cloud, tens of thousands of customers can visualize their physical operations in real-time on one integrated platform. The Samsara Driver App allows fleets to streamline the driver experience with features designed to maintain compliance, optimize dispatching, and boost productivity.
Customers can now launch Sygic Professional GPS Navigation routes directly from the Samsara Driver App with this integration. It provides a seamless user experience and ensures drivers make it safely and efficiently to their destinations with turn-by-turn navigation solely on routes compliant with the vehicle and its cargo.
Along with routing based on specifics, such as height, weight, the number of axles, and other vehicle parameters, the Sygic Professional GPS Navigation solution also respects emission zones and HAZMAT restrictions. Map data is stored locally on the device, so drivers can always depend on the navigation, even in areas with weak or no connection. Additional features, such as lane assistance, live traffic, disabled left turns, and more, help protect drivers and avoid risky situations on the road.
“We are thrilled to have our Sygic solution listed on the Samsara App Marketplace. This integration enables customers to launch Sygic routes with a single touch via the Samsara Driver App. This brings fleet dispatchers peace of mind and confidence when planning their transportation schedules – knowing they can rely on market-leading features already trusted by over 3,000 fleets and 3 million drivers,” said Miroslav Remecky, Chief Commercial Officer at Sygic.
“As digital workflows and mobile technologies become increasingly important for drivers on the road, it’s critical to ensure intuitive tools to do their work safely and efficiently,” explained Chris Mozzocchi, Senior Director of Product Management, Product, and Ecosystem Integrations at Samsara. “We’re excited to be partnering with Sygic to provide the best possible driver experience for our customers and enable them to make the most of their mobile applications.”
