Designed to address the unique routing needs of fleets and logistics companies, Sygic’s Professional Navigation solution gets commercial drivers where they need to go safely and efficiently. It harnesses TomTom map data to plan the best routes for deliveries, considering factors including vehicle dimensions and weight, cargo type and restricted access to certain roads. The routing algorithm is dynamic with self-learning capabilities, allowing it to understand the nuances of driver behavior and modify its settings accordingly.
To further optimize routing and ETA calculations, Sygic makes use of TomTom’s real-time and historical traffic data. Powered by over half a billion connected devices worldwide, TomTom Traffic enriches Sygic’s routing algorithm with real-road information, including accidents, traffic jams and road closures, as well as average driving speeds and travel times on specific routes. With these details, the routing algorithm can calculate optimal routes and incredibly precise ETAs.
Sygic’s navigation solution works both online and offline, meaning that drivers don’t have to worry about running up high data roaming charges or getting stuck without directions when there’s no network connection. What’s more, fleet managers can plan routes beforehand in the back office and send them directly to a vehicle’s navigation system, so drivers can just get in and start their journey.
