3 Agenda  Why integrate Navigation with your Business System » Drive Assist recap » Integrated features and benefits

4 Reference Case Study  The new combined functionality provides » Call address details start CoPilot with route » Calculated ETA sent back to enterprise system or to customer via canned text message » Location data sent back with job status messages » Support for multiple job route optimization » Call mileage logging » Asset location tagging » Request assistance button

5 Solution Benefits  75% reduction in delivery paperwork  3.6M mile reduction in fleet mileage  Improved stock utilization / reduction in fleet purchases  Nationwide delivery time reduced to two hours  Improved lone worker health and safety  Reduced fuel consumption / environmental benefits  Enhanced productivity  Increased data security

6 Pre Implementation Customer Calls Call Centre Central Reservations allocates the job to regional depot Regional depot allocates Job, paperwork and directions to driver Regional depot allocates suitable vehicle to the Job Car is inspected by driver Driver delivers car, completes paperwork with customer Driver and customer inspect vehicle. Driver returns to depot Vehicle inspection paper work stored in filing system Rental detail manually entered back into VHMS Customer Calls Call Centre Job and vehicle allocated and ‘pushed’ to drivers Handheld device Driver collects and inspects vehicle using Hand held device. Data sent back to VHMS Handheld navigates driver to customer Driver uses Handheld to inspect vehicle with customer Customer signs screen. Job details sent back to VMS Driver gets next job on Handheld Post Implementation Process Improvements

13 Agenda  How to Integrate » CoPilot Live Professional SDK and API Set

14 SDK Overview  Allows you to leverage CoPilot’s real time navigation and messaging functionality from within your application  CoPilot and your application can be on the same or separate machines  Simple and straightforward integration options » Remote Control - controlling CoPilot via simple API calls » Server Configuration - integrating navigation functions into your product

15 SDK Integration – Remote Control  Send a request to CoPilot, responses are received asynchronously through the use of callbacks or through a queuing mechanism  CoPilot SDK allows you to control CoPilot Live in a request/response paradigm » Send text messages, trip itineraries » Modify window states (show/hide, etc.) » Modify the size, pan/zoom, position, and z-order » Get/Set languages, routing profiles, etc

16 SDK Integration – Server Configuration  CoPilot runs in a separate hidden background  Via a post/subscribe mechanism receive real time data updates as they become available: » Guidance maps showing location, route, surrounding streets, etc.. » Turn instructions: street name, cross street, turn types » Turn distances: next turn, 2 nd turn, ETA, etc.

17 SDK Details  Provides platform, location and network independence » Any SDK enabled version of CoPilot (laptop, PPC) » Messaging based on TCP/IP » Local or Remote operation  Supported compilers » Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2003 » Microsoft eMbedded Visual C » Microsoft eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0

18 SDK APIs – Sample Set
