Tracker partners with Garmin to develop new fleet system

Telematics provider Tracker has formed an exclusive partnership with Garmin to develop Tracker Vision.

Tracker Vision uses the Garmin Nüvi 2508LT-D UK to enhance the fleet tracking product, Tracker Fleet.

The system combines fleet tracking with job allocation, navigation, reporting and driver communication provided through a customisable, secure user website.

Over time, Tracker will roll out versions of Tracker Vision utilising a variety of Garmin sat navs for its fleet tracking solutions, giving businesses a flexible, scalable and affordable fleet management solution.

Clive Taylor,director of fleet management and commercial business for EMEA and APAC at Garmin, said: “We’re delighted Tracker has chosen to partner with Garmin for its fleet solutions. Our aim is to work with Tracker to provide premium navigation and traffic information for Tracker’s customers as well as improved communications and management for fleets, no matter what the size.

“This includes two-way messaging, task management information direct to the driver’s screen, job scheduling and ETA to the fleet manager.

"We look forward to working together Tracker to provide an excellent service to their customers and with the specific aim to bring real benefits to their business.”

Stephen Doran, managing director for Tracker said: “It is a strategic union; Tracker becomes the chosen fleet management provider for Garmin, as it becomes our chosen mobile navigation technology partner and the future will see us make significant technology strides together.
