In-cab mobile computing specialist Mobexx has launched an intelligent transport innovation for fleet operators, which has already won over important customers in North America. The Mentor Ranger fixed-mount computer system provides a one box real-time vehicle information and communication solution, without the need for additional tracking, telematics or mobile phone systems.
The convenient cost-effective system provides voice and data communications, automatic vehicle tracking and telematics in a fully integrated single powerful platform. In addition, the self-contained system provides wireless programming and upgrading of software, point-of-sale transactions and mobile workforce management capabilities. It can be used with existing in-vehicle peripherals and business management software and its modular structure makes customisation simple. The rugged and compact in-vehicle computer is fully optimised for use with Mentor Streets mobile workforce and despatch management and the modular Mentor Mobility software that gives fleet managers infinite control over their vehicles and drivers.
The system allows operators to improve on-time service, be more responsive to customers and reduce fuel costs with efficient routing. The automatic vehicle tracking software allows fleet management teams to track vehicles in real-time on colour-coded, customisable maps. This ensures that everyone in the operations office is aware of actual vehicle and driver activity in relation to planned routes and schedules. The system also allows instant responses to any incident that may occur, such as a vehicle breakdown, traffic jam or road traffic accident.
"The Mentor Ranger system could revolutionise the way UK fleet operators run their businesses. This solution has been hailed a great success in North America. UK organisations can now benefit from this cost-effective, ground breaking system that will dramatically improve their fleet operations, raising their customer service levels to new heights," says Mark Dale-Lace, Director, Mobexx.
