GARDEN GROVE, California, November 9, 2011 — Teletrac Inc., recognized as an industry-leading provider of advanced fleet management solutions, today announced a series of new mobile apps based on its award-winning Fleet Director® GPS and vehicle tracking solutions. The new mobile apps will help increase driver, technician and manager productivity, connecting employees at any place, at any time. Fleet Director® Mobile will empower “always-on” operations managers with real-time mobile capabilities for managing and tracking assets from the Apple® iPad® 24/7/365. A wide-range of fleet tracking capabilities include quickly pinpointing the precise location of any vehicle in the fleet or a subfleet, monitoring vehicle start and stop times for improved security and quick response to incidents such as stolen vehicle alerts, and monitoring of unsafe driving behaviors to improve fleet and driver safety performance. Fleet Director Mobile is now available from the Apple iTunes® Store.
Today’s workplace no longer consists of a dispatch office with a set of desks in the middle of a yard for operations personnel. Equipped with tablet devices and smartphones, managers and drivers are “always on” and have become reliant on mobile technology to manage both their personal and professional lives. Effective fleet management processes and data are crucial to many businesses and directly help to lower costs and improve driver and technician productivity. And, many decisions must be made in real time. With Fleet Director Mobile, managers will be able to get a handle on operations, collaborate on decisions and events as well as access critical information — from their iPad.
“Without a doubt, tablets and smartphones are revolutionizing our daily lives and usage is exploding among businesses that rely on a mobile workforce,” stated Drew Hamilton, executive vice president, Teletrac. “Given the nature of the industries we serve, such as field services, transportation, construction and logistics, and the need for more cost effective management of their vehicles, we are very excited to extend our flagship solution, Fleet Director, to our customers that have embraced new mobile technologies.”
The Fleet Director Mobile iPad application can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes® store at no cost. The application is designed for current Fleet Director customers only, using Fleet Director 8.0 or higher versions.
Fleet Director Mobile will be extended to the Apple iPhone by the end of the year.
