Fleet and asset tracking technology company Navman Wireless has launched Director, its latest GPS software platform.
The platform can helps businesses gain efficient fleet management habits through data about their workforce. It comes as a result of months of R&D and product collaboration between the engineering teams of Navman Wireless and its newly combined sister company, Teletrac.
“I’m personally excited and very proud to announce the launch of Navman Wireless Director,” said Paresh Nagda, chief technology officer of Illinois-based Navman Wireless. “Our goal is to empower customers with actionable data in an easy-to-use platform. Its scalable features go beyond fleet tracking to include everything from analysing driver behaviour, to receiving instant alerts, robust safety reporting and custom geo-fences.”
Features include mapping, messaging capabilities and workflow forms, user alerts, vehicle maintenance, instinctive user search functions and driver behaviour analysis.
The software’s complete driver and vehicle behaviour system, Safety Analytics, provides a view into fleet activity. Composed of a visual event viewer and driver scorecards, the software enables businesses to monitor and replay unsafe driving events that occur on the road. The real-time scorecard function creates reports summarising unsafe road behaviour and provides side-by-side driver rankings.
The software platform builds on the success of the company’s predecessor GPS product, Online AVL2. Director is completely web-based and accessible to global fleets in a variety of industries.
“The new platform’s complete suite of services scales to the needs of fleets of any size across segments from local service to long haul transportation,” said Nagda.
Navman Wireless and Teletrac combined in the GPS-based fleet optimisation products and services market, including real-time vehicle tracking and analytics that let companies monitor, measure and improve driver safety, operational costs and efficiencies. The joint company’s technology tracks more than 500,000 vehicles across five continents. Headquartered in Glenview, Illinois, it has offices in the USA, Mexico, Europe, New Zealand and Australia.
