GPS Insight, a leading supplier of GPS tracking hardware and software solutions for commercial and municipal fleet vehicles, announces it has launched the next generation of user defined alerts.
These next-generation options go beyond the typical fleet management functionality and help customers precisely react to unexpected situations with their fleet, as well as notify drivers of the violation in real time via SMS text message or email to their phone.
A combination of speeding, idling, long stop, landmark visit, and odd-hours/weekend usage may now be used to custom tailor an exact alert for customers.
Practical uses of these new alerts include:
- Alert when drivers are at their home within work hours on weekdays
- Alert when excessive idling occurs except in known maintenance areas
- Send a driver an alert when they are speeding within known construction areas
- Alert for different speeds during different times of day such as daytime and nighttime
- Send a driver an alert when their vehicle moves from their home at night in case it is being stolen
The first GPS Insight customer to use these alerts reduced total idling from 42% to 27% within two months, saving 40,000 gallons of fuel and achieving tremendous ROI. This 2-month case study was documented in August here: http://blog.gpsinsight.com/?p=325.
GPS Insight has now released this capability for the benefit all of their customers.
These enhanced alerts are in addition to vehicle maintenance reminders and engine diagnostic trouble codes which continue to function as they have in the past.
