Locus, a B2B SaaS company that automates human decisions in the supply chain, announced March 2 a new integration with Lytx, a provider of video telematics, analytics, safety, and productivity solutions for commercial and public sector fleets.
While Lytx provides GPS location information on vehicles, Locus uses the information to prepare the most optimized route. Additionally, Locus can utilize the planned route and location information to compare planned versus actual performance as well as power analytics and insights. The combined product offering of Locus and Lytx will enable fleet managers to optimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) driven by fuel economy monitoring, driver analytics, visibility, compliance management, and predictive maintenance alerts.
For fleets, this smart management platform will help with higher asset utilization, optimized route planning, better driver communication, and seamless interactions with shippers and warehouses, translating into cost and time savings for the fleet managers.
Locus uses deep machine learning and proprietary algorithms to offer smart logistics solutions to customers.
