Navman tracks all machines regardless of make or model
Contractors of all sizes can track their fleets – regardless of make or model – with Navman Wireless USA’s new web-based telematics portal.
“A client goes to a portal, and all his machinery, the various models, are shown in one place,” said Steve Blackburn, the fleet-tracking company’s vice president of North America. Information includes location, machine utilisation, fuel burn and preventive maintenance schedules.
The technology works for contractors of all sizes, Blackburn said, but might be particularly notable to smaller and mid-size companies.
“For the past decade, contractors with mixed fleets have been increasingly handicapped in their use of telematics by the fractured nature of the reporting,” Blackburn said. “Only the largest fleets with exceptional budgets and large IT teams have been able to afford to consolidate the data from each OEM website.”
The new solution complies with the AEMP Telematics Data Standard. It provides one-stop fleetwide visibility without adding third-party hardware to machines that already have factory-installed OEM telematics, and supports integration of data into the ENTERPRISE office system for broader business use.
Related information such as machine inspection data and photographs of machine damage can be imported into the system for further data consolidation.
