ESRI and NAVTEQ Webinar Helps Governments Operate Efficient Fleets

Redlands, California — April 06, 2009 — Governments looking to stretch fleet-related resources and increase productivity should plan to participate in a webinar hosted by ESRI and NAVTEQ on ArcLogistics software and NAVTEQ map data. The online seminar takes place April 8, 2009, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (CDT).

The webinar will discuss the specific challenges government fleet operators face in a world of limited budgets and increased demand for fleet-related services. Viewers will see how they can get the most out of their fleets and mobile workforce by using ArcLogistics and ArcLogistics Navigator to create optimized routes and schedules that cut fuel costs, improve service, and contribute to a greener community. Participants will also explore government use-case scenarios and view a demonstration of ArcLogistics and ESRI’s new in-vehicle navigation solution, ArcLogistics Navigator.

“Governments have to balance limited resources while continuing to provide services deemed vital to the community,” said Christopher Thomas, government industry manager, ESRI. “ArcLogistics has a proven payback record and can help reduce costs thanks to its powerful solvers and flexible nature—routers and dispatchers aren’t replaced with ArcLogistics, they are empowered by it.”

“ArcLogistics stands out because it solves routing problems based on actual street networks,” said Roy Kolstad, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Americas, NAVTEQ. “When fleet operators use actual street network data for routing that is powered by NAVTEQ, they are getting accurate and comprehensive map data that reflects ground truth.”

The Efficient Government Fleets: Optimize Routing with ArcLogistics and NAVTEQ webinar is the first of a series hosted by ESRI and NAVTEQ. To register, visit
