Telogis introduces Fleet 8 scalable GPS fleet management software. This Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) GPS fleet management system drives rapid return on investment for fleets through improved productivity and operational streamlining. Fleet 8 now incorporates dynamic traffic and weather data to allow fleet managers to make informed real-time routing and allocation decisions based on conditions in the field.
New content includes:
•Traffic—Fleet 8 imports real-time traffic data to allow fleet managers and dispatchers to reassign jobs if they notice a major traffic jam or incident that prevents a crew from getting to their next job on time.
•Weather—real-time weather monitoring assists in both routing and planning.
•Streetside/Bird’s Eye View—easily view the actual location and surroundings of a field team.
Fleet 8 also offers new tracking tools to reduce operating and administrative costs, and improve safety and utilization of assets in the field:
•IFTA/IRP Data Feed—helps companies that have vehicles traveling through multiple states accurately and efficiently manage compliance based on GPS data and determine the best place to register each vehicle.
•Multiple Vehicle Histories—allows Fleet 8 users to view the current and historical status of multiple vehicles in a single window. It tracks potential drags on productivity and cost, such as incidents of mobile workers congregating in a single location for too long, and speed vs posted speed limit signs for known speeding offenders.
•What Happened Here?—a new tool that simplifies researching incidents at specific locations/times. It now takes seconds and helps expedite investigations into purported violations or incidents involving vehicles/equipment.
•Fuel Card Module—leverages fuel card data and GPS locations to manage fuel purchases better. In addition to recording fuel card transactions, the module compares the transactions with GPS-provided vehicle locations to verify authorized use. If a card is used without an approved vehicle within a specified range, that information is called out to the fleet manager.
•Field Management Co-Location Module—uses GPS to determine when a foreman/supervisor’s truck is on a jobsite or other location related to the job, such as a maintenance shop or depot.
