Xata, ALK Technologies create CoPilot Truck 8
Xata Corp. and ALK Technologies have produced a new on-board navigation system called CoPilot Truck 8 Professional.
The companies announced the new on-board navigation system March 5 in a news release.
Orlando, Fla.-based Xata Corp. specializes in fleet optimization software, and Princeton, N.J.-based ALK specializes in geo-logistics and navigation software.
Their new system gives voice-guided, truck-specific turn-by-turn directions automatically, with optimal new routes instantly calculated if a driver misses a turn or deviates from the planned route. Xata captures real-time critical information on vehicle and driver performance, allowing fleet managers, dispatchers and drivers to collect, sort, view and analyze data to help reduce costs, increase safety and compliance, and improve customer satisfaction.
