New partnership to create EV optimisation and navigation solution
Route optimisation specialist Route Monkey has partnered with global GPS navigation expert Sygic to develop an electric vehicle optimisation and navigation solution for fleets.
Targeted at all vehicles, not just EVs, the solution provides a scheduling solution that sends the best route for their entire itinerary to each driver, directly into the Sygic Navigation app. The tool can also schedule stops at charge points en route to top-up the batteries, and provide real-time navigation to recharging stations.
Colin Ferguson, CEO of Route Monkey, said: “Navigation tools for EV users have been around for a few years now. However, our integrated solution takes this concept to a whole new level. By partnering with Sygic, we can optimise an entire fleet, including EVs, plus provide navigation that is specifically tailored to EVs within that fleet.”
Martin Strigac, director of Sygic Business Solutions, said: “We are more than happy and proud that we can participate in this very interesting innovation together with our partner Route Monkey.
“Based on our research and analysis, mixed fleets consisting of EVs and conventional vehicles will soon play an important role in fleet telematics. In combination with our Sygic Professional Navigation and Sygic FleetWork the planning, driving and operational management of EVs will be much easier, more efficient and transparent. We like innovations with high added value for our valuable customers!”
