DENVER, Colo., May 20, 2014 — OnTerra Systems (www.OnTerraSystems.com),
a technology leader in Web mapping, fleet optimization, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) integration solutions and services, today announced it is now a HERE Maps reseller of the HERE Platform for Business, an enterprise-level mapping data technology platform for mobile asset management (i.e. the tracking and efficient routing of vehicle and truck fleets). The HERE Platform is used by two primary users: 1) Commercial software development companies with fleet tracking or field force management software systems, or 2) Corporate-level fleet management departments with in-house software developers creating and managing their own home-grown fleet tracking and field force management software systems for fleets of 100 or more vehicles.
“HERE provides some of the best mapping data, and mapping capabilities on the market today,” said Steve Milroy, OnTerra Systems president and founder. “OnTerra Systems is all about developing efficient, quality solutions for fleet management and route optimization. With our years of experience deploying and selling web mapping solutions, particularly for fleet tracking and route optimization, it was a perfect fit for us to become a HERE Maps reseller,” said Mr. Milroy.
“HERE is distinguished for its collection and mapping of many transport-related road attributes such as speed limits, tolls, physical and HazMat restrictions for commercial vehicles, and historic, real-time, and predictive traffic information,” explained Mr. Milroy. The HERE Platform comes in a variety of prices points, depending on the level of mapping information that’s needed. For example, Tier One provides just for vehicle or mobile asset tracking. Tier Two provides data for mobile asset tracking plus basic vehicle routing information. Tier Three includes vehicle tracking, basic and advanced routing information, and detailed compliance information for commercial truck routing such as which roads allow the transport of hazardous materials, physical restrictions such as bridge heights, and predictive traffic information.
The HERE Platform also can be used in conjunction with RouteSavvy, OnTerra Systems’ route optimization products. The HERE Platform, in combination with OnTerra’s powerful RouteSavvy route optimization products, offers valuable new tools to increase fleet productivity, reduce fleet operating costs, minimize a fleet’s environmental impact, and improve the tracking and regulatory compliance for large vehicle and truck fleets.
RouteSavvy from OnTerra Systems can be integrated directly into fleet management software products, and fleet management systems developed by companies with large fleets.
According to Mr. Milroy, the HERE Maps reseller agreement came about for several reasons. “First, OnTerra Systems has expert-level knowledge and experience selling web mapping solutions. Second, OnTerra Systems also has expert knowledge in technologies that facilitate efficient fleet management and route optimization,” he said.
