Date: 16 May 2012
Next generation fleet telematics recognised at coveted Fleet World Honours
Re-engineered fleet telematics offering, TRACKER Fleet, scooped the Technology Award at the prestigious Van Fleet World 2012 Honours, presented at a glittering ceremony held at the Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall on Wednesday 16 May. TRACKER, faced stiff industry competition to win the Technology Award, which marks the company’s innovation and ability to meet the needs of today’s fleet operators.
The Fleet World Honours is a highly regarded award in the fleet market and recognises motor manufacturers, service companies and individuals who deliver the highest possible level of excellence to the fleet sector.
This latest win from Fleet World recognises TRACKER’s ability to remain at the industry’s cutting edge. TRACKER Fleet incorporates unique features such as patented Transient Voltage Detection technology. Vitally, this detects electrical noise to more accurately determine when an engine is running and eliminating false ‘idling’ readings, a concern prevalent in many of today’s alternative offerings. TRACKER Fleet also examines ’Driving Style’, a growing trend in fleet monitoring.
Bringing its marketing leading tracking solutions to an even wider audience, Battery Powered TRACKER Fleet monitors and locates non-powered assets, including port-a-cabins, containers, trailers and powered vehicles where connection is not practical or not possible. As the unit is simpler to install it can be fitted quickly and at a low cost, but still offer all the key benefits of TRACKER Fleet.
Commenting on the Award win, Van Fleet World Editor, John Kendall, said, ‘The launch of TRACKER Fleet has reinforced the company’s position as an innovative and ambitious fleet telematics provider. TRACKER Fleet is a completely re-engineered, highly sophisticated product with many new features bringing next-generation telematics services to fleet operators. The TRACKER team has demonstrated that it has the ability to develop and manage solutions that offer clear benefits to fleet managers, and all of this is underpinned by the latest technology to ensure that the services are reliable, future-proof and easy to use.’
Fleet managers can customise TRACKER Fleet’s reporting suite allowing users to select their own Key Performance Indicators to be highlighted on the dashboard, providing a single view of their fleet’s activity. As well as delivering information crucial to the smooth and safe running of a fleet, such as speeding and exceeding mileage limits, vehicles can be arranged into groups of use, such as sales, service or by region or depot and have identifiers added to them – all of which can be modified by a Fleet Manager.
In addition advanced Google Map features such as Street View help drivers and fleet managers by offering features, including a route replay function, which is a standout piece of technology and a real benefit for customers monitoring their drivers.
Stephen Doran Managing Director for TRACKER comments, “This is a fantastic win for TRACKER, we will continue to develop our TRACKER Fleet product ensuring we address the ongoing requirements of SME customers operating a few vehicles, through to large organisations with fleets numbering thousands.
“The Fleet World Honours is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry and recognises the best in the industry. TRACKER Fleet is our next generation fleet telematics product and this level of industry recognition just goes further to strengthen our position as market leader, supporting fleet managers in organisations large and small.”
