Vehicle management system: ALK Technologies, a Trimble Company and provider of GeoLogistics® solutions and navigation software, and SkyBitz®, a leader in remote asset tracking and information management solutions, announced that SkyBitz has integrated ALK® Maps with its InSight asset tracking and management web application. The combination provides SkyBitz’s customers with real-time visualizations of interactive street-level maps with satellite imagery.

“We are pleased to offer SkyBitz customers enhanced North American maps with common industry-specific information that will help them to improve their operations,” said Henry Popplewell, senior vice president and general manager, SkyBitz. “The new mapping integration can help customers to visualize their assets with more contextualized information.”

Offering industry-standard commercial mapping and highly accurate Class 8 vehicle restriction information, ALK Maps enhances InSight with relevant, transportation-specific data missing from consumer mapping applications. InSight users will now benefit from truck-specific map overlays for fuel and truck stops, weigh stations, toll roads and landmarks, in addition to commercial restrictions and hazmat designations. These enhanced map layers can apply to the multiple industry segments SkyBitz serves. Customers will also have the ability to set up geo-fencing for Class 8 vehicles, clustered layers and benefit from other enhancements to landmark creation and editing. These capabilities can save fleet dispatchers and driver managers valuable time and productivity, allowing them to focus more closely on drivers and assets.

The ALK Maps integration is now available for SkyBitz customers within SkyBitz InSight.
