ALK Technologies and Apacheta Corp. have reached agreement to provide mobile enterprise applications with integrated voice-guided GPS navigation and vehicle-specific routing.

The integrated solution will leverage Apacheta’s mobile workflow applications and ALK’s CoPilot software to help fleets reduce fuel costs and out-of-route mileage, increase efficiency, and improve driver safety, ALK said.

“We are very excited to have Apacheta onboard as a CoPilot Live Professional ISV partner,” said Dan Popkin, vice president, Enterprise Solutions Worldwide at ALK Technologies. “The integration of CoPilot Live and CoPilot Truck Professional into Apacheta's mobile workflow applications will benefit our customers by creating value while maximizing opportunities in the marketplace.”

Under the agreement, Apacheta will resell ALK’s CoPilot Live Professional and CoPilot Truck Professional, embedding CoPilot’s turn-by-turn directions as options in its TransportACE, RouteACE, MerchandiserACE and ServiceACE mobile workflow applications.
CoPilot Truck Professional provides voice-guided GPS navigation with PC*Miler truck-specific routing.

Apacheta markets and develops a suite of flexible mobile workflow applications which can be easily tailored to a company’s unique business processes, it said. All Apacheta applications are available on Windows Mobile and Android rugged handhelds, smartphones and tablets.

“Integrated GPS navigation and voice-guided turn-by-turn directions are an essential part of any mobile workforce management solution,” said Don Grust, CEO, Apacheta. “Through this partnership with ALK we can offer a best-of-breed, complete solution from a company that really understands the needs of professional drivers and fleets."
