Sygic joins partner network

GPS navigation pioneer Sygic has signed a global agreement with The Algorithm People to promote its innovative pay-as-you-go route optimisation platform.
The three-year deal will see Sygic become a Super Partner for My Transport Planner, the UK’s first pay-as-you-go, fully online transport planning software. My Transport Planner is a web-based tool designed for commercial vehicle operators of all sizes. The benefits it delivers include reductions in planning time and increased productivity through better vehicle utilisation. It also cuts costs and carbon emissions through a reduction in total mileage.
Martin Strigac, CEO of Sygic, said: “Reliable and accurate multiple waypoints optimization is the backbone of timely and efficient delivery. Especially in these times of higher demand for the services. My Transport Planner represents an innovative and unique approach on the technology, which will help van and truck operators using our enterprise solutions to manage daily jobs better, spend less time by planning and lower the costs.”
Sygic developed the world’s first satnav solution for Apple and the second for Android devices. It has more than 200 million users worldwide. The partnership will therefore enable My Transport Planner to go global.
It builds on the existing agreement between Sygic and The Algorithm People. The companies announced in January that they were working to integrate Sygic’s Truck Navigation platform into My Transport Planner, providing users with an end-to-end solution from importing jobs, allocating them to vehicles, planning routes and providing drivers with turn-by-turn navigation instructions.
It also includes pioneering on-device optimisation, which for the first time will give users the ability to optimise routes in real-time on their mobile devices and navigate to their destination while avoiding roads unsuitable for the vehicle.
Colin Ferguson, CEO of The Algorithm People, said: “Our technical partnership with Sygic was focused on integration to create a true end-to-end solution for commercial vehicle operators. This new commercial agreement builds on our relationship, providing us with a fast route to global markets, with a trusted, well established and highly respected brand.”
