Customer stories

Building functionality for safer navigation

Eleos integrates HERE SDKs and APIs into the native iOS and Android applications provided to their customers. The most critical and the industry's core requirement is legal and safe navigation for heavy trucks.

HERE has given us an open platform that allows us to constantly build functionality...because a legal route isn't necessarily a route you'd want to drive your 18-wheeler on.

Kevin Survance, CEO and Co-Founder of Eleos
Chief Digital Officer of DKV discussing route optimization, fleet routing, location data and fleet operations.

Utilizing real-time location data

DKV improves core offerings, from providing static to dynamic route optimization, with HERE's location technology that utilizes real-time location data. As it transitions into a data-centered organization, DKV extends its optimization capabilities to drivers – helping them make the right decisions moment to moment.

When it comes to accessing the location data that sustains our value proposition, we work with HERE Technologies because we perceive them as the leader in mapping and real-time, location-based services.

Dr. Hendrik Rosenboom, Chief Digital Officer
VP of Product Management for Descartes discussing location data, ETA, Last Mile Delivery and route optimization.

Providing organization services with location data

Descartes uses HERE geocoding data for ETA-planning. HERE Technologies lies at the core of Descartes ability to provide organization services for route optimization, delivery planning, last-mile, ETA capabilities and more.

We can build these route planning and optimization models very quickly and achieve results for customers using that geometry data. We also use things like real-time traffic conditions, predictive traffic, historical traffic patterns, posted speeds and some of the other premium location-based attributes HERE provides.
