FleetMatics launches GPS Vehicle Tracking System 7.0

FleetMatics has launched the latest version of its highly acclaimed GPS software – the FleetMatics GPS Vehicle Tracking System 7.0.

“With new features previously unavailable in the market and improved functionality, FleetMatics 7.0 further establishes our position not only as a leader in the GPS fleet tracking market, but also as a true innovator,” said Derek Bryan, FleetMatics. “Our continuing efforts to enhance our software and invest in development prove our strong commitment to helping businesses with vehicle fleets gain control over costs and performance.”

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 is a feature unique to FleetMatics 7.0 and unique to the market. It gives our customers more control than ever over productivity and allows them to quickly identify cost leakage,” said Derek Bryan. “And this is just one of the many improvements we offer so customers can achieve real results for their companies.”

Another 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.
