Hino Trucks has announced a new web-based location and telematics solution for 2008-2012 model-year trucks. The new solution comes with a free one-year subscription. Hino Insight can be customized for nearly all Class 1-8 GVW vehicles. The solution offers vehicle alerts, a fleet manager dashboard and remote power door unlock telemetry. Also included are GPS-based remote fleet management capabilities.
Hino Insights was developed by the OEM with WebTech Wireless , and the solution has been tested with over a million miles of real-world testing.
“A prime advantage of our advanced telematics solution is that from conception through final design, Insight has been developed to improve customer satisfaction at all levels, maximizing opportunities for our customers to achieve sustainable competitiveness,” said Dominik Beckman, marketing manager of Hino Trucks. “It’s more than simply a total operating cost reducing agent and CRM tool, Hino Insight lends to safe vehicle operation and environmental righteousness, which are core elements of our mission.”
Hino Insight provides a range of solutions, the OEM said, including route tracking, geofencing, advanced vehicle administration, and planned maintenance management of real-time critical Hino proprietary diagnostics alerts. It also includes custom fleet performance dashboard reporting.
The dashboard reporting is available through the HinoInsight.com web portal, and is designed specifically for fleet managers to “see” a snapshot of their fleet’s performance against established targets.
Managers can see real-time vehicle and driver information, including idle time fuel savings opportunity calculator; targeted fleet performance for speed, acceleration, braking, and fuel usage; identification of trucks with greatest performance improvement opportunities; in-route/driving fuel economy versus overall fuel economy; operating time utilization (drive time, idle time, and PTO time); and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank level monitoring.
According to the OEM, Hino Insight includes an automated email scheduling system that enables for user-defined groups of vehicles or drivers for selected reports, dashboards, vehicle critical and truck performance alerts, geofence/landmark parameters, and planned maintenance items, to be emailed and viewed internally or externally without having to access HinoInsight.com or purchasing computer software.
Advanced options include two-way dispatch/driver communication; electronic driver logs with hours of service (HOS) reporting; real-time job management; navigation routing; security/blind spot video monitoring; axle payload weight monitoring; security alert system with emergency call center integration; seat belt and tire pressure monitoring; accelerometer accident reporting; and fully customized vocational solutions for applications such as snow plow, waste management, and fuel delivery.
