Navman Wireless, the UK’s largest provider of vehicle tracking, has launched an innovative iPhone app that allows customers to manage their entire vehicle fleet from the palm of their hand.
Based on the company’s powerful OnlineAVL2 desktop tracking software, the app enables users to locate drivers on detailed maps and route them to their next destination.
"To date, many vehicle tracking users have been unable to take full advantage of their systems as they can’t always be at their office computer," said Tony Neill, Managing Director, Navman Wireless UK.
"This app will give customers total freedom to control their mobile workforce regardless of where they are, and could revolutionise the way some companies manage their fleets as a consequence."
Comprehensive functionality means the app also features instant messaging so managers can communicate with drivers and provide them with detailed instructions on their next job. In addition, users can retrospectively view vehicle movements to determine where vehicles have been during the day and how long for.
"The rapid advancement and popularity of smartphones has opened the door to many exciting possibilities for the vehicle tracking industry," added Tony.
"This new development represents a natural evolution for vehicle tracking and is part of our ongoing commitment to investment into new mobile technologies."
The iPhone-only app is now available to download from Apple’s App Store and customers can contact their account managers for further details.
