DoiT International (DoiT), a global multicloud software and managed service provider with deep expertise in Kubernetes, machine learning and big data, has been named an official Google Maps Mobility Partner. For more than a decade, DoiT has partnered with Google Cloud to enable fast-growing, tech-savvy companies such as Influx Data, JFrog and Sift to innovate and scale, and DoiT now supports mobility solutions for last-mile delivery, fleet management, on-demand rides and supply-chain logistics.
Urban mobility has become a critical focus area for technology firms, due to rapid growth of cities, traffic congestion, rising fuel costs and vehicle pollution. With a detailed global map coverage that is continually updated, accurate street addresses, live traffic flow data and a cloud infrastructure that offers the possibility to scale rapidly, the Google Maps Platform has for many years been the API-based solution of choice for start-ups in the mobility space.
By becoming one of a select few initial Google Maps Mobility Partners worldwide, DoiT enables its customers to take advantage of Google’s new comprehensive mobility platform, which offers customizable, modular and cost-efficient end-to-end solutions.
After lengthy testing with select customers, Google released the following mobility solutions in early 2022, which DoiT is proud to support: On Demand Rides and Deliveries (ODRD), Last Mile Fleet Solutions (LMFS) and Cloud Fleet Routing (CFR).
Designed to resolve issues relating to on-demand transportation, such as taxi rides or quick food deliveries, the On Demand Rides and Deliveries (ODRD) solution helps businesses improve operations and streamline both the driver journey and the end-customer experience, along with predictable pricing per completed trip or delivery. ODRD has unique features including the display of a driver’s ETA, expected route and estimated trip price on a familiar Google map; faster pickups and more accurate ETAs, which result in fewer cancelled rides; in-app turn-by-turn driver navigation; as well as continuous updates available for end-customers, from booking, via pickup, to drop-off/delivery.
Similar in concept to ODRD, Last Mile Fleet Solutions (LMFS) enable successful execution of pre-planned deliveries and rides, also with predictable pricing per completed delivery/ride. Features include shipment tracking and up-to-date arrival times, enabling end-customers to plan for delivery of packages. Access to Google Maps’ hyperlocal data, enhanced by StreetView images, allows drivers to deliver packages to the right place every time using enhanced in-app turn-by-turn navigation.
In addition, Google’s Cloud Fleet Routing (CFR) solution enables vehicle fleet operators to undertake fleet-wide multicriteria route planning at scale, for both first and last mile delivery fleets. The CFR API is a Google Cloud AI-based platform that integrates seamlessly with LMFS, enabling multiple re-optimizations of routing plans in real time, allowing operators to respond rapidly to disruption and take immediate action to update end consumers.
