FleetMatics’ new mobile app offers fleet owners and managers real-time access to vehicle locations, alerts, reports, and dashboards through any Android-based smartphone. The app delivers a full-feature version of FleetMatics’ 8.0 GPS vehicle tracking system, allowing quicker response times to customer calls.
In addition, dispatchers can route technicians more quickly using Live Fleet, and information delivered through dashboard reports and route replay can assist in the recreation of incidents.
“Our new Mobile App allows users to run their fleets smoothly and efficiently right from their smartphones, whether they are in the office or out in the field,” said CEO Jim Travers. “Like our web-based application, it provides seamless, full-featured integration with Google Maps API and Google Street Views, so drivers can be directed to exact customer or delivery locations quickly and easily. This not only saves time and improves productivity and customer service, but also helps to reduce fuel costs – which is so critical these days.”
Since its launch, more than 2,000 users have downloaded the app, representing 35,000 vehicles, the company said.
