NAVTEQ will feature applications from key transport and logistics customers. The following demonstrations will be delivered over the course of the show in the NAVTEQ booth.

By using Fleet Director 7, fleet managers gain dramatic advantages such as improved fuel savings, vehicle efficiency, driver productivity, loss prevention, lower insurance costs and higher customer satisfaction. Fleet Director locates, tracks and monitors the position and operations of fleet vehicles, giving fleet managers unprecedented visibility into operations. This latest release utilizes live traffic information from NAVTEQ Traffic to enable dispatchers to re-arrange route priorities and coordinate vehicles on the fly, automatically identify the closest vehicle to a given location for "fastest routing," dashboards, and more.

Maptuit: Maptuit markets and develops NaviGo Advanced GPS Navigation that operates seamlessly on existing telematics solutions. Every fleet is looking for ways to reduce costs, and NaviGo has proven time and again a very strong ROI by significantly reducing miles, fuel usage, and accidents.
