GAME-CHANGER: Magenta hail collaboration
Magenta Technology’s Maxoptra cloud-based dynamic routing and scheduling service will now be directly available at the touch of a button to Wialon telematics solution users.
The integration of Maxoptra with Wialon is, according to Magenta, a ‘game-changing development’, with Wialon tracking more than 500,000 vehicles for 650 companies in 60 countries worldwide.
Users of the Wialon telematics solution can now tap the Maxoptra icon from within the application itself.
On first tap, Maxoptra will self-configure itself in a few minutes using existing data on vehicles, depots and drivers from within the Wialon platform.
This makes Maxoptra ready to use almost straightaway.
Continual synchronisation then ensures that both vehicle and driver databases of the two solutions are always in alignment.
Aliaksandr Kuushynau, Chief Wialon Officer at Gurtam, said: “Quite uniquely in this market, we empower all of our customers to vote for the prioritisation of new functionality through the Gurtam Forum.
“Therefore, we know that embedding Maxoptra dynamic routing and scheduling into the Wialon web-based tracking solution is in exact alignment with our customers need to serve their customers well and provides them with quick and easy access to the services they require.”
Anton Dmitriev, CEO of Magenta Technology, added: “The integration of Gurtam, a new GPS/GLONASS provider, now enables Maxoptra to run a real-time track and trace analysis for any type of the 147,000 tracking device connected to the Wialon cloud hosting service.
“Today’s customers expect increasingly narrow and accurate time windows for distribution and maintenance companies to deliver their services, and they expect to be constantly informed of any variation using mobile technology.
“Big ticket integrations to achieve this have been around for a number of years, but this development makes it incredibly easy and affordable for any user – no matter what their fleet size – to meet the service expectations of their customers by delivering the right service at the right time.”
