FleetMatics upgrades its GPS fleet system

GPS vehicle tracking systems provider FleetMatics has launched a new software upgrade to its service. 

The FleetMatics GPS vehicle tracking system already includes various reporting functions. 

With this release, FleetMatics provides several enhancements that will increase flexibility and ultimately give fleet owners more power to control their fleets.

These will be delivered remotely and at no cost to current FleetMatics clients.

Jim Travers, CEO of FleetMatics, said: “With our previous release, FleetMatics created an exceptional management tool that gave SME fleet owners an easy, cost-effective way to control their mobile assets. 

“The new software upgrade builds on that success to provide improved functionality, increased ease of use and additional reporting capabilities.”

Fleet operators can use the FleetMatics software to monitor and track their vehicles online via GPS.

The new upgrades resulted from direct client input to reflect how fleet owners use the system to maximise productivity and reduce costs.

A “my preferences” feature now allows for unmatched personalisation.

Fleet owners can set defaults for a wide variety of software functions including new graphical displays for the “dashboard” feature, reporting automation and preferences for the live tracking and route replay maps. 

In addition to the current alerting functions for excessive speed and unauthorised journeys, the system now alerts fleet owners when vehicles idle longer than specified limits. 

Alerts can also be viewed during live tracking or sent via email.
