Teletrac Announces Specialized Solution for Vehicle Location and GPS-Based Fleet Tracking



An Affordable, Easy-To-Use Solution For Small to Midsize Fleets

GARDEN GROVE, California - Teletrac Inc. (teletrac.net), a telematics technology leader for more than 20 years, today announced availability of a specialized solution suite - Teletrac 20/20 - for vehicle location and GPS vehicle tracking, that helps businesses gain fleet efficiencies, save fuel, improve on-time performance, and lets dispatchers and drivers be significantly more productive. Teletrac 20/20 goes far beyond traditional vehicle location and GPS tracking solutions, delivering an array of premium features utilizing today's most advanced technologies such as Microsoft's Silverlight and BING Maps for enhanced visualization and animation, interactive mapping, and video playback. As a result, Teletrac 20/20 technology uniquely gives dispatchers clear vision and focus for tracking mobile assets and managing operations, in an affordable, easy to use solution specifically designed for small and midsize fleets, even micro fleets.

"With the release of Teletrac 20/20, companies with small to midsize fleets needing to focus on tracking mobile assets, now have access to a solution offering a comprehensive feature set aimed specifically at their operations and business requirements," said Tony Eales, CEO, Teletrac. "Further, as a result of our 22-year technology leadership and success of Teletrac's flagship solution, Fleet Director 7, Teletrac 20/20 uniquely offers the most advanced big fleet technology in an affordable, easy- to- use solution for small to midsize fleets."

Teletrac 20/20 fleet software is a specialized solution for tracking mobile assets that improve operations and reduces costs in numerous ways - through fuel savings, higher productivity, reduced driver overtime and unauthorized vehicle use, reduced backoffice paper work, improved preventive maintenance, and often lower insurance premiums.

Teletrac 20/20 is browser-based, enabling dispatchers to efficiently locate, track and monitor the position and operation of fleet vehicles in real time, 24x7, from any internet-enabled personal computer. Fleet managers gain unprecedented visibility into operations - a user friendly layout and easily recognizable icons make Teletrac 20/20 easy to use and intuitive from the start; advanced satellite mapping with conventional roadmaps in 2D and 3D views including live traffic give dispatchers more realistic and detailed maps on which to base operational decisions; automatically identifying nearest vehicle based on actual vehicle speed, actual distance and estimated arrival time provides the most accurate information for enhancing the customers' service experience, and multiple and detailed vehicle reports help monitor driver performance and provides advanced decision support for more efficient regulatory compliance.

Advanced mapping gives dispatchers clear vision and focus for tracking assets
Teletrac 20/20 vehicle tracking system uses the latest BING Mapping technology, aggregating the best maps and data from an array of leading suppliers. Mapping is extremely powerful and layers location-relevant data on top of imagery taken from satellite sensors, aerial cameras, Streetside imagery, 3D city models and terrain, providing vivid photorealistic images. Satellite mapping with conventional roadmaps in 2D and 3D views plus live traffic data gives dispatchers more realistic and detailed maps on which to base complex decisions. The ability to easily overlay standard or custom data points makes it quick and easy for dispatchers to add custom landmarks to maps, places of interest and important or frequently visited addresses - enabling dispatchers to more readily assign and track vehicles and routes.

Determining nearest vehicle for more effective response

Teletrac 20/20 provides "nearest vehicle" locating, based on Teletrac's computed combination of actual drive time, actual distance and current traffic conditions - far more accurate than as-the-crow-flies estimates. Dispatchers simply enter a street address or an unlimited number of landmarked locations. Dispatchers are immediately presented with maps showing all vehicles within the map area plus crucial information such as speed, actual distance and estimated time of arrival. Dispatchers can also apply this process to multiple vehicles, enabling them to converge on a destination.

At-a-glance dashboards and complete reporting supports decision making

Dispatchers can view real-time information and summary data in at-a-glance "dashboard" displays to support rapid, optimal decision making for most productive use of vehicles. These dashboards can drill down and include information customized to the needs of individual users.

Teletrac 20/20 generates 15 different reports for viewing via web-browser, or reports can be downloaded and printed. Up to four reports can also be automatically generated, scheduled and delivered via email - daily, weekly or monthly - according to each recipient's needs and preferences.
