FleetMatics, a leading provider of GPS vehicle tracking technology, recently made its service available to serve small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in Canada.
Like in much of the rest of the world, Canadian SMBs have struggled to maintain profitability during the current economic crisis. But businesses with vehicle fleets face the additional challenges of volatile fuel costs and lack of control over their mobile assets.
The best business operators in the market are turning to GPS tracking as one additional way to improve their business performance and profitability. By offering Canadian SMBs with vehicle fleets a cost-effective GPS tracking solution, FleetMatics can help reduce costs, improve productivity and increase operational efficiencies.
“As the competitive landscape for GPS vehicle tracking continues to evolve, we are excited about this latest move. Providing our software to the Canadian GPS marketplace further demonstrates the wide appeal of our unique solution,” said Jim Travers, FleetMatics CEO. “Our customers consistently tell us that our GPS tracking is the easiest solution to use and we are certain Canadian business owners will find this to be true. With best-in-class post-sale support and continued product enhancements, FleetMatics looks to continue to capture market share, demonstrate our operational excellence and deliver continued strong fiscal growth.”
FleetMatics GPS fleet tracking works by placing a module in each vehicle to monitor location, speed, idle time, and engine start up and shut down. This information is transmitted via satellite for up-to-the minute tracking and can be accessed by authorized personnel from any Internet-enabled device.
The system compiles this information into management reports that business owners can use to encourage fuel efficient driving habits, prevent cost-leakage and improve accountability of mobile employees. With its ease of use, cost-effective pricing model, system reliability and unparalleled support, the FleetMatics GPS Vehicle Tracking Solution provides nearly immediate results for SMBs.
“FleetMatics has helped us make sure our employees are doing what they are supposed to be doing,” said Mike Mansfield, QHSE Manager of BOS Solutions, a leader in drilling fluid recovery to the oil and gas industry in Alberta, Canada. “We now know that our employees are complying with laws and policies when out on the road. For example, the speeding alerts have helped us ensure our drivers are driving safely and efficiently.”
FleetMatics is a rapidly growing venture-backed telematics company with offices in the USA, UK and Ireland.
