With industry mandates to reduce fuel costs and simultaneously increase productivity and driver safety, Telogis has upgraded its scalable fleet management system. The company’s Fleet 10 is an integral part of its comprehensive, cloud-based location intelligence platform for companies that require dynamic routing, real-time work order management, navigation, telematics and mobile integration services for their mobile workforces.
“With the release of Fleet 10, Telogis continues to redefine the industry standard by taking feedback from our customers and delivering the kinds of features and functionality they require to be competitive,” said Mark Wallin, vice president of product management of Telogis Fleet and Mobile.
Based on customer feedback, a fleet manager’s No. 1 concern is keeping drivers safe. Among the new safety features in Fleet 10 is the Telogis Driver Scorecard option, which provides comprehensive metrics to help companies identify trends in driver behavior over time to positively impact safety. The upgrade to Fleet 10 generates new, easier-to-read reports on activities and behaviors that are critical to driver safety including hard braking, hard acceleration, excessive speeding, speeding vs. posted speed limit, seatbelt use and after-hours vehicle use, and gives drivers improved in-cab alerts in real-time to help encourage safe driving habits.
To meet the demands of mobile workforces and their supervisors in and out of the office, Fleet 10 includes Telogis Supervisor, a new mobile app for smartphones and tablets that allows field supervisors access to information about their teams in the field, helping them to make quicker decisions throughout the day based on location and vehicle information as plans and needs evolve.
Compatible with virtually all mobile devices, Telogis Supervisor is location aware, allowing it to show the user where they are in relation to other vehicles and assets within their organizations, and see important data such as customer information, driver data, recent stops and histories, and what vehicle may be nearest to a specific job. Telogis Supervisor also allows users to view Geographic Information Systems (GIS) layers on their mobile devices, giving them access to information such as weather and traffic detail.
New to Telogis Fleet 10 are next-generation fuel monitoring technologies that combine telematics and fuel card reporting, bringing greater visibility to a business’ fueling activities. Fleet 10 also helps companies reduce fuel spend by providing actionable information that allows managers to identify potential fuel shrinkage by using match reports and miles-per-gallon (mpg) data.
The latest version of Telogis Fleet 10 also includes real-time traffic and weather monitoring, advanced compliance reporting, extensive vehicle histories and personnel management functions, asset management, ad-hoc reporting, custom GIS layers, satellite street views, geofencing and asset security features. The platform integrates seamlessly with industry-leading enterprise infrastructure systems allowing for fleet managers to be able to easily share reports created within Fleet 10 and the Telogis platform within their organizations
