A.Maze Tracking Moves Beyond Traditional Wireless Tracking to Ensure Driver Safety and Theft Security
Québec, Canada - January 23, 2003 - GEOCOMtms, architect of the leading A.MAZE solution that optimizes the execution of fleet operations, announced today that fleet managers and dispatchers will now have direct control over their trucks and operators to ensure safe driving, theft security and decrease the costs of wear and tear of their fleets.
"This breakthrough in the A.MAZE Tracking system will benefit the industry in general", said Erick Demers, Project Manager at GEOCOMtms. "JMonitor enables compliance with safe driving habits at a distance. Data interaction from within the cab provides a feedback loop cementing the link between operations and the road, thus enforcing operational accountability with respect to company set limits, and the legal limits of the law."
Speeding and hard braking result in real-time exception reports sent instantly to the dispatcher. Dangerous situations are relayed immediately and can be addressed in real time. Cost reductions in operating the company's fleet investment necessarily follow. Engine idling and speeding translate into excessive fuel use; hard braking is an indicator of unsafe driving conditions, and a potential cause of load damage, vehicle stress and tire wear.
"Furthermore, this new A.MAZE Tracking functionality allows remote control of optional digital Input/Output devices, that can stop crime related truck thefts on the spot and help recover the vehicles when activated. Finally, it will allow companies to lower their insurance coverage fees", concluded Mr. Demers.
JMonitor captures exceptions, fault codes, and performance data for immediate or scheduled transmission to the dispatch room. It imports data directly into the client's fleet maintenance/management software and streamlines maintenance scheduling. One can use the data to verify vehicle operational characteristics against design specs. The collection of state line crossing and GPS data, along with odometer readings, automatically and significantly reduces manual labour involved with fuel tax reporting and provides the foundation for electronic Driver Logs. In short, JMonitor opens the door to a world of validation, interaction, and automation.
