Cheetah Software Integrates CoPilot Live V8 GPS Navigation Software

Westlake Village, CA — Cheetah Software Systems, Inc. has announced a plug-in solution utilizing ALK Technologies’ CoPilot Live v8 turn-by-turn GPS navigation software.  Matching Cheetah’s industry-leading dynamic routing and dispatch optimization with CoPilot Live’s clear, uncluttered 2D and 3D map guidance displays with detailed spoken directions increases safety and efficiency for today’s delivery and freight carriers.

For years, Cheetah has helped transportation and logistics companies move more goods with fewer miles driven, less fuel consumed, and reduced overhead. Cheetah customers benefit from the only integrated customer workflow and logistics solution proven to intelligently automate and optimize routing, dispatch, and customer service with dynamic, real-time capabilities.  

Now, Cheetah can integrate CoPilot Live’s superior navigation services, including the following benefits:

  • Detailed voice instruction using Text-to-Speech technology to pronounce full street names
  • Clear 2D, 3D and Driver Safety views with route highlighted clearly and a turn arrow to indicate which way to go at junctions
  • Multi-stop trip planning to enter up to 50 stops or waypoints
  • Multiple destination entry options including address, intersection, favorite, recent, POIs and Pick on a Map

 “The CoPilot Live plug-in provides our customers with a truly intelligent solution, allowing them to experience the benefits of the most effective and efficient products for managing and enhancing the safety of their fleets,” said Cheetah’s President and CEO, Bobby Darroll. “Together, Cheetah and ALK Technologies provide customers with access to the exact information they need, when they need it – all updated in real time,” he said.

The combined solution leverages Windows Mobile devices to provide applications that not only optimize routing, dispatch, and customer service, but that also enhance safety by providing turn-by-turn spoken directions to keep the driver’s eyes on the road. Together, Cheetah and CoPilot Live provide the best logistics planning, visibility, and events management, increasing productivity, reducing operating costs and greenhouse emissions, all while improving safety.

As a Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, Cheetah offers LTL and delivery software solutions that can be implemented in as few as 60 days and provide a return on investment within six months. At the same time, CoPilot Live v8 installs in less than 15 minutes per device, providing immediate turn-by-turn navigation capabilities. The combination of Cheetah and CoPilot Live thus offers a powerful logistics solution that can be implemented immediately and with only minimal capital investments.
