We created a system that enhances what we can do for small business fleet management without impacting the cost advantages of our solution for these customers.
Carbondale, PA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Prova Systems, a leader in OBD-2 based fleet management systems unveils its Fleet Genius Bluetooth VHM wireless fleet management system. The new wireless VHM complements Prova’s existing Fleet Genius Zigbee/802.15.4 wireless fleet management monitors. The new system works with the company’s Fleet Genius PRO fleet management system and supports all 3rd party integrations as well.
The system supports the same feature rich capabilities as the original wireless Zigbee VHMs; trip tracking, driver behavior, vehicle maintenance tracking and vehicle diagnostics are collected by the Bluetooth VHM then forwarded to the cloud by a customer’s Bluetooth device. This opens up a completely new mobility profile for Fleet Genius and supports fleet management of vehicles that almost never come back to the office.
Prova’s new VHMs also support integration with partner products through Prova’s Fleet Genius cloud servers which allow Prova to support the hardware while allowing customers to choose the software application provider that meets their needs.
The company has released a new Fleet Genius Bluetooth app for Android which is available on the Google Play store. The app is free and collects data from the VHM and forwards it to the Fleet Genius cloud servers using the customers cellular or WiFi connection. There is also a PC based application which runs on Windows PCs and Windows 8 Tablets.
The new Bluetooth VHMs have a list price of $269/unit. The company is offering the VHMs in a special introductory bundle for $199/unit when paired with a 3 year subscription contract to its Fleet Genius PRO application which costs $5.95/vehicle per month. The new pricing provides customers with a 3 year savings of over $5k for comparable fleet management systems costing $25/month or more.
“We have been hearing from many small businesses that Bluetooth and smartphones were their preferred fleet management solution. There is strong reluctance in our customer base for expensive cellular systems” emphasized John Collins, President of Prova Systems. “We created a system that enhances what we can do for small business fleet management without impacting the cost advantages of our solution for these customers.
The system is available for order immediately with shipments starting in May 2013.
