GPS Fleet Management Leader Adds Innovative Features to Powerful Software
March 28, 2008 -- Glenview, Ill., – Navman Wireless North America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Navman Wireless Holdings, and a leading global provider of vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions, announced today powerful new enhancements to its next generation vehicle tracking and logistics software, OnlineAVL2. Providing the ultimate in fleet management functionality, Navman Wireless’ new cutting-edge capabilities come only two months after the new software’s premiere. The innovative OnlineAVL2 solution now includes three versatile new features: an integrated maintenance module; state mileage reporting, and automated email reporting. Combining this new functionality with powerful real-time vehicle position, comprehensive activity data collection and high-resolution satellite imagery, Navman Wireless’ OnlineAVL2 offers companies the most advanced fleet management solution to increase efficiency and improve business operation.
The new maintenance module of OnlineAVL2 provides a complete overview and detailed summaries of fleet maintenance activities. It is the most powerful asset maintenance tracking analysis tool for fleet managers on the market. Reducing downtime caused by breakdowns and other unforeseen mechanical problems resulting from neglected repairs, the module tracks user-defined maintenance activities such as service dates, times, costs and provider. The Navman Wireless OnlineAVL2’s integrated maintenance module can track all maintenance needs including oil changes, license renewal, inspection, tire rotation and mileage, to name a few. Managers can specify how the data is reported, (e.g. by date, number of miles or even days on the road). In addition, the maintenance module allows users to pre-set warning periods for alerts regarding fleet service needs.
The OnlineAVL2 also features sophisticated new state mileage tracking and automated email-reporting functionality. Using specific latitude and longitude data from GPS logs, the software’s state mileage reporting eliminates the timely tax requirement of manually tracking mileage by state. With the touch of a button, OnlineAVL2 can automatically produce accurate state mileage reports for every vehicle in the fleet, greatly simplifying mandatory IFTA form completion. OnlineAVL2 also facilitates seamless report generation and distribution with automated email reporting. Using a familiar Microsoft Outlook-like interface, fleet managers can create templates, define reporting frequencies and select multiple recipients for each report, eliminating the need to query the system for data and manually distribute information. Automated email reports can be sent using a variety of format options, including .pdf, .xls, .xml or .csv.
“The new advanced features incorporated in our OnlineAVL2 solution shows the power that our new platform has in rapid development of new features.” said Renaat Ver Eecke, vice president – Navman Wireless North America. “Our continued investment into meeting the demands of our customers demonstrates our commitment to making Navman Wireless’ fleet management solution the most complete and customizable solution on the market.”
OnlineAVL2 provides fleet managers with the vehicle position and activity details required to effectively manage a mobile workforce. Harnessing the power of high-resolution satellite imagery and high aerial photography, the software provides fleet managers with photo-realistic views of their drivers' actual surroundings, including support for traditional street-level mapping views, as well as top down satellite imagery with street and street name overlay. Additional features include: unlimited two-way messaging to one, some or all vehicles from an office desktop; fully integrated navigation functionality for drivers; comprehensive real-time and historical vehicle/driver activity reporting; Driver ID technology for differentiating individual activity with shared assets; programmable alerts for vehicle speed, idle time, unauthorized movement and security breech, polygonal geofence functionality for defining driver territories.
The complete Navman Wireless solution, including OnlineAVL2, is priced from $1.50 per vehicle per day. Existing users will receive a free upgrade that includes the new state mileage and automated email reporting during the next automatic software update. The integrated maintenance module is available for an additional charge; contact Navman Wireless for more details.
