FleetMatics, provider of GPS fleet tracking for commercial fleet vehicles, has launched the latest version of its GPS software - the FleetMatics GPS Vehicle Tracking System 7.0. The system includes a variety of powerful new tools and navigational improvements to give users easy access to more information about their vehicle usage.
The cornerstone of the new release is Panoramic Reporting. This data mining tool gives customers the capability to analyse the idling time, mileage, speed and engine on-time for every vehicle tracked since installing FleetMatics GPS. Customers can use this data to determine the full impact of GPS on their business and quantitatively compare employee performance.
"Panoramic Reporting...gives our customers more control than ever over productivity and allows them to quickly identify cost leakage," said Derek Bryan, FleetMatics. "And this is just one of the many improvements we offer so customers can achieve real results for their companies."
Another major enhancement in FleetMatics 7.0 is the launch of FleetMatics Mobile. Users can now track their fleet from most Internet-enabled mobile devices. Anytime, anywhere access to fleet performance allows for on-the-fly dispatch changes and immediate reaction to improper vehicle usage.
Other FleetMatics 7.0 enhancements include the ability to watch the route replay of any vehicle journey from any report with one click, immediate tracking of any vehicle mentioned in a report, instant emailing of any report to multiple recipients, the ability to see every vehicle that goes to a specific location and new alerts when a power take-off (PTO) is in use.
As with all FleetMatics upgrades, current customers receive FleetMatics 7.0 at no additional charge with free, unlimited training on the new features.
"FleetMatics 7.0 is only the latest in a continual series of improvements and enhancements we offer on a regular basis," said Bryan. "Our customers have also benefited from recent partnerships with Google for enhanced mapping and ViaWest for improved platform stability. This is why we claim one of the highest renewal rates in the industry."
