A rapid rise in the number of fleet operators installing telematics is expected after the government announced on-the-spot fines for careless driving.
Imagine if you could see the exact location of your vehicles round the clock just by glancing at an on-screen map.
Telematics is set to become increasingly important to EU van fleet operators following this week’s vote by the European parliament’s environment committee.
Are you about to invest in tracking or telematics for a large fleet or thinking of doing so? Then let us help you save time and money.
The sharp increase in fines for using a phone while driving, announced by the government, will see much greater use of in-vehicle tracking terminals, according to TrackCompare.co.uk.
If you are not 100% sure if tracking can help your business, but you are keen to find out, then a free trial is a great way to achieve this.
Following a survey of our customers we found that most companies who implement a tracking system never put a driver policy in place. We advise all our customers to implement a driver policy which sets out the purpose of the vehicle tracking system, and the obligations of both driver and employer regarding its use.
With the rapid adoption of smart phone technology in both the consumer and business markets, tracking a mobile phone through its inbuilt GPS functionality, is quickly becoming a viable alternative to traditional forms of fleet vehicle tracking.
It was announced yesterday that Masternaut and Cybit UK Ltd have joined forces to become Europes leading telematics provider. Cybit which was itself acquired by the Francisco Partners private equity fund in 2009 has now merged with French owned Masternaut.
Mobile Resource Management specialist Masternaut has launched a new patented contactless CANbus connector for commercial vehicles and cars. The Masternaut Engine Management Unit (or EMU for short) collects information and reports on driver behaviour, fuel consumption and the status of essential on-board safety systems.
