ANTWERP, Belgium, November 11th – Following its introduction at the ITS Belgium Congress held in Brussels earlier this year, i-Move launches its AnyMap Navigator product suite, a versatile and comprehensive navigation software development toolkit aiming at professional markets. It consists of a navigation runtime, an API to integrate the runtime in other applications and a Skin Tool to customize the GUI.
AnyMap Mobile Navigator allows building location and mobility applications for professional and consumer markets. It provides an ideal framework for the creation of specialist navigation products, such as tourist guides, or solutions for specific markets such as waste management. Its powerful interface enables quick and easy customization and integration in existing applications. It runs on a variety of consumer and professional hardware such as rugged handheld computers, laptops, netbooks and tablet PCs. AnyMap Mobile Navigator is interoperable with the other cornerstones of the AnyMap product family that share the same kernel, AnyMap Server and AnyMap Desktop. Moreover, it can be customized with C++ or in .NET and runs on Windows mobile and desktop platforms.
Following key features make it a product of choice:
- Ability to integrate own data in the map such as own assets and infrastructure;
- Usage of industry standard maps of Navteq and Tele Atlas;
- Distributed navigation;
- On-board and off-board multimodal capabilities;
AnyMap Mobile Navigator today already powers a choice of products on the market. These range from entry level consumer products, over multimodal navigators to high-end, hybrid truck navigation. Customers vary from SMEs in taxi business to global players in chemical and utility industry.
Founded in 2007, i-Move built its expertise through research projects in multimodal navigation, the development of comprehensive and compact private label navigation products and building ASP mapping platforms for Tracking & Tracing and Fleet Management.
Map data and location-enabled products & services have become increasingly available, and this has tremendously increased the awareness of businesses with regards to its potential to contribute to improved efficiency and lower cost, to environmental awareness and regulation compliance. As a result, demands of these businesses are mainly related to business-critical processes and applications and very specific with respect to quality, service level and flexibility.
i-Move addresses this demand by building and marketing powerful generic mapping, routing and navigation software development toolkits for professional fleet management and navigation. These components easily integrate with existing applications and interfaces such as an onboard unit in a commercial vehicle, with a fleet management environment or with processes in the logistics workflow, thus adding the power of location and mobility to our clients’ products, services and solutions. They also allow building standalone products.
The AnyMap products are available through a global network of business partners. Today we are actively developing this network by recruiting partners with whom we want to collaborate to identify, develop and mature professional location markets at large.
