Victoria, BC. (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
Vecima Networks Inc. and YourLink Inc are proud to announce that FleetLynx™ has been selected for fleet deployment by the City of Weyburn to equip their Public Works, Police and Fire Department fleets.
While adopters of Telematics have traditionally focused on the conversion of systems to satisfy regulatory requirements, municipalities are now looking at the bigger picture in terms of potential impact on labour and ongoing operational costs. Fleet management technologies not only help improve fleet efficiencies, but also provide quantifiable data reporting on ‘idle free’ initiatives and other policies that improve the environmental impact of vehicles.
“The FleetLynx fleet management solution provides a superior means of tracking for the municipal fleet market, while generating the data needed to promote safety initiatives and reduce operational costs,” stated Robert Forget, VP of Telematics for Vecima Networks. “We’re proud to have been selected by the City of Weyburn and to be at the forefront of green initiatives in fleets across North America.”
“We have found the FleetLynx system to be both flexible and user friendly and the technical support has been beyond satisfactory,” adds C. Morin, Superintendent of Public Works & Parks at the City of Weyburn. “I would encourage any firm in the market for this type of system to contact YourLInk or Vecima to learn more about the product and how it could benefit you.”
Vecima’s FleetLynx™ is a Fleet Management and Telematics solution providing rich engine data and fault information as well as location based monitoring and events. The FleetLynx solution includes one of the most powerful and intuitive portals on the market today. The portal can be customized to fit the requirements of the customer’s applications using Vecima’s in house engineers or via the open API. Employing the most advanced cloud, in-vehicle, and application technologies FleetLynx provides comprehensive regulatory compliance along with enhanced vehicle metrics and other compelling user features.
