Having the power to track and manage your fleet in the palm of your hand is going to make life easier for any company with a mobile workforce...
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) October 12, 2011
Only recently did it become possible to actively manage a fleet without being tied to a computer screen. SageQuest (http://www.sage-quest.com), an innovative, industry leading GPS fleet tracking and management provider, launched a mobile app for Android Market in early August to allow customers to manage their fleet anytime, anywhere. Too often, software companies rush to invest in mobile platforms, only to deliver a nifty but not-so-useful app that might get downloaded, but doesn’t get used. Since August, over 30% of SageQuest’s user base have rushed to adopt it – and use it every day.
With quick success and great reviews, SageQuest Mobile has been a hit – customers love having a real time view of where their people are while they themselves are in the field. For a small business owner, the workday never stops – and being able to see where company trucks are any time of day or night makes a difference. “I have installed the app on a few of the Night Managers phones and it has been extremely helpful. The ability to access SageQuest on the go is an invaluable tool to us,” explains one Cincinnati-based customer.
But the #1 request? Create an app for the iPhone.
“If companies want to stay viable in today’s world, they need access to their information anytime, anywhere. Having the power to track and manage your fleet in the palm of your hand is going to make life easier for any company with a mobile workforce,” explains Dennis Abrahams, Chief Operating Officer.
Released today, SageQuest customers can install SageQuest Mobile on Apple devices – iPhones, iPod touch, and the iPad. A full-featured version of SageQuest’s GPS vehicle tracking solution, SageQuest Mobile makes anytime access to fleet information a reality with no additional costs or set up required. The SageQuest Mobile app is available in the App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sagequest-mobile/id464057476?mt=8).
With SageQuest Mobile on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, customers will be able to:
- See real-time vehicle location and status;
- Play back or follow along driver routes;
- Find the nearest technician for an urgent job;
- Validate driver activity with instant insight into any fleet vehicle;
- Monitor speeding, late starts, excess idling, and vehicle maintenance with real-time alerts;
- And add new “places” to the map for on-the-go monitoring – customer sites, branch offices, warehouses, or employee homes.
Companies interested in being able to monitor fleet activity from both their desktop and their mobile phone can find more information, see a video of the app, and request a demonstration at http://go.sage-quest.com/fleet_tracking_mobile_app
