Google maps including in fleet tracking

FleetMatics : 05 May, 2009  (New Product)
FleetMatics has built Google Maps into its GPS fleet tracking system for improved location accuracy and better route optimization capabilities
FleetMatics, a provider of GPS fleet tracking for business fleets, has announced that the FleetMatics GPS Vehicle Tracking Solution will now include Google Maps API Premier in its software to give fleet owners unparalleled control in managing their vehicles off-site.

Google Maps functionality, including the ability to visualize real-time asset locations and deliver optimized routing and driving directions, will be seamlessly integrated with the Fleetmatics software, which delivers pertinent vehicle data such as such as speed, idle time and start/stop times. All current FleetMatics clients will be automatically upgraded to the FleetMatics GPS solution with Google Maps, which provides a complete real-time, location-based system for optimizing fleet management based on GPS tracking.


"When looking for a mapping partner, we wanted to team up with a provider that offers the ease-of-use and speed our clients expect combined with accuracy and cutting-edge technology," said Jim Travers, FleetMatics CEO. "Google Maps API Premier enables us to exceed what our clients expect from FleetMatics GPS tracking."

With the addition of Google Maps API Premier, fleet owners now have the ability to more accurately track their fleet vehicles anytime, anywhere with in-depth traffic reporting, satellite views, hybrid satellite/street name views, terrain views, powerful zoom features and more.

"Since fitting FleetMatics to our fleet, we have made substantial savings in our fleet running costs. In our first year we saved $73,000. Now with the upgraded versatility of Google Mapping added to our system we have even greater clarity and control over what our drivers are doing in the field," said Lynda Silvestro, owner of Hoyt Livery, one of New England's prestigious limousine services.

The FleetMatics GPS vehicle tracking solution is designed to go beyond traditional fleet tracking. The fleet tracking system is designed with a unique combination of managerial features and enhancements that make this solution very versatile and effective for increasing productivity as well as lowering fleet costs.

"With this new partnership, FleetMatics and Google will provide fleet owners with a faster, more accurate and more comprehensive mapping platform to make intelligent location-based decisions and maximize fleet efficiencies," said Daniel Chu, Director, Maps API Premier, Google Enterprise.
