Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 3, 2006
GEOCOMtms, a global provider of Fleet Management solutions for local pickup and delivery, announced today that it is licensing key technology to make its A.MAZE Fleet Management platform the most accurate planning tool available. The company has signed a comprehensive licensing agreement with LandSonar, a leading supplier of network delivered predictive traffic products, for its LandSonar Predictive Speed (LPS™). LPS expresses forecasts of traffic speed on most roads in the continental US integrated into NAVTEQ and Tele Atlas map data. It provides highly accurate, complete traffic pattern and speed information at the road segment level by time of day and day of week. When used in A.MAZE, it enables GEOCOMtms clients to consider real-world traffic speeds when developing daily routing and scheduling plans hours, days, or weeks in advance.
“For most fleet operators, efficiency, timely pickup, and stated delivery are an absolute requirement,” said Michael Nark, president and chief executive officer of GEOCOMtms. “These operators have to perform within strict time-windows set by their customers despite the challenges of rush hour causing unpredictable delays. A.MAZE Planning, a component of A.MAZE Fleet Management, helps companies avoid delays by leveraging the traffic information provided by LandSonar to create routes that meet all time-specific service requirements. The combination of LPS with the best-in-class capabilities of A.MAZE Planning mean GEOCOMtms customers will have the most accurate route planning solution on the market.”
LandSonar has been at work for over three years collecting billions of open and proprietary historic GPS and sensor observations to develop a highly accurate predictive capability. Leveraging this capability, the company offers a suite of traffic products for advanced planning, risk mitigation, and intelligent routing sold primarily to automated vehicle logistics (AVL), location based services (LBS), device manufacturers, and product developers in need of verifiable speed and traffic forecasts. The company continues to enhance accuracy and model the impacts on predictive traffic with continued data acquisition, scientific discovery, and delivery infrastructure development. Commercial, consumer, and government customers can now use LandSonar powered products like A.MAZE Fleet Management to increase fleet efficiency, improve customer service and reduce wasted time on the road.
“Our solutions go to the heart of ensuring efficient, appropriate use of fleet resources,” said Jonathan Hubbard, chief executive officer and co-founder of LandSonar. “Successful route planning is key to these objectives and requires accurate speed forecasts. We all know that posted speed limits aren’t what really happens. Real speeds and routes mean real dollars in customer satisfaction, time savings, and efficiency. Only LandSonar can accurately forecast traffic for all the roads GEOCOMtms customers drive.”
LandSonar is the leading supplier of highly-accurate, full coverage predictive traffic products used to increase routing accuracy for fleet, logistics, and navigations systems. In use for end-customers, leading routing solutions, and LBS developers, its products give meaningful “Speed Ahead!™”. The company’s unique data approach, patented science, and sophisticated understanding of historic traffic enable it to deliver data for bringing certainty to solutions vastly improving efficiency, shortening travel times, and increasing satisfaction. Funded by select individuals and founders, LandSonar is based in San Francisco, California.
