Globe readers got an inside-look at navigation devices offering more than simply maps-in-a-box today. The Business section of today’s Globe and Mail, a major paper out of Toronto, Canada features a list of top GPS and traffic monitoring technology available to anyone running a small business. The list provides fresh perspective by featuring devices and technology that offer more than just maps to help business on the road.
“Running a small business can mean you’re constantly on the road for meetings, sales calls or deliveries. Getting stuck in traffic or getting lost is the last thing you need – and that’s when the latest technology comes in handy.
… Companies have realized that the service is more important than the hardware, and have concentrated on improving the information people receive from their systems.”
Featured on the list compiled by Lynn Greiner at the Globe is an important service by IMS – Traffic Intelligence. Using cell phone signals to monitor traffic volume IMS takes an innovative approach that features easy deployment to urban areas and low overhead.
IMS Traffic Intelligence is soon to be used by Toronto-area traffic authorities and is soon to be found in devices like iLane, the aftermarket connected car platform by IMS. iLane already uses complete voice interactive interface that keeps drivers connected without being distracted. Together with Traffic Intelligence, IMS is creating the next-generation of in-car safety and productivity.
