Qualcomm Inc. today announced Version 5.1 of FleetAdvisor, which includes support for 802.11b wireless Local Area Network (LAN), fleet status exception monitoring and expanded web-enabled functionality.

FleetAdvisor is a transportation logistics management package that supports full-function on-board computing, vehicle tracking, back-office software and real-time wireless communications.

Norm Ellis, vp of business operations for the company's wireless business solutions division, said private fleets using FleetAdvisor in conjunction with 802.11 technology can significantly increase efficiency, reduce costs and leverage existing wireless networks.

"This is critical for companies operating private fleets since the fleet is most often considered a cost center where efficiencies and technology investments need to be maximized," Ellis said.

The fleet status exceptions monitoring function in FleetAdvisor 5.1 allows dispatchers to determine if trucks have stopped, are off-schedule or are operating outside of normal performance criteria. FleetAdvisor 5.1 also includes expanded web-based functionality that allows dispatchers to conduct web-based dynamic re-routing, route editing, and dispatch messaging and order entry changes.
