Frost & Sullivan Presents TeleNav with 2009 North American Mobility Award
TeleNav Track™ recognized as the ‘Best Mobile Resource Management (MRM) Solution on a Handheld Device’ for the second year in a row

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – May 6, 2009 – TeleNav, Inc., the largest wireless navigation services provider in North America, today announced that global growth consulting company, Frost & Sullivan, has selected TeleNav’s mobile resource management (MRM) service, TeleNav Track™, for the 2009 North American Mobility Award for ‘Best MRM Solution on a Handheld Device’ for the second year in a row.

“TeleNav Track continues to lead the industry with its combination of cutting-edge features, back-office integration capability and best value pricing,” said Jeanine Sterling, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “In our side by side comparisons, TeleNav Track clearly offers the most robust functionality at prices that are equal to or better than its nearest competition. Together, TeleNav Track’s capabilities provide customers with a clear, hard-dollar return on investment by enhancing worker productivity, controlling costs, increasing safety, and improving customer satisfaction.”

TeleNav was the first company to launch a GPS-enabled cell phone MRM solution in North America. TeleNav Track allows organizations to monitor and oversee their mobile workers and fleet through GPS tracking, information reporting, vehicle diagnostics and timesheet management. The solution can help increase overall performance and efficiency through features such as GPS navigation and wireless forms, dispatching, barcode scanning, image and signature capture and out-of-the-box business application integration. Currently, approximately 9,000 organizations rely on TeleNav Track to help effectively manage their mobile resources.

“As a result of MRM solutions moving to mobile phones, the MRM solution category is now available to all businesses of all sizes and in an array of vertical industries. In fact, we expect the North American MRM market to exceed $1.6 billion in annual revenues by 2013,” said Sterling.

“We are honored that Frost & Sullivan has recognized TeleNav Track for the value that it brings to mobile organizations of all sizes looking for a competitive edge,” said Ravi Acharya, associate director of B2B marketing at TeleNav. “We have worked hard to create a service that is easy to use, effective and inexpensive.”
