Redtail Telematics Adds Advanced Driver Behavior Features

March 10, 2011 - Press Release

SAN DIEGO - Redtail Telematics enhances an already feature rich Fleet Management System (FMS) with the ability to capture rapid acceleration, harsh braking and excessive rotation data from vehicles without connecting to the vehicle’s On Board Diagnostics (OBDII) port.

Identifying harsh braking and rapid acceleration habits provides fleet managers with the data to improve driving behavior and reduce fuel consumption. Minimizing excessive rotation and harsh braking maximizes the overall life of a vehicle due to less wear and tear on your fleet, as well as reducing the costs of damaged goods.

“These new features are only a few of the many planned to roll out in 2011,” said Anna Amoresano, REDTAIL Telematics, Vice President. “Providing rapid acceleration, harsh braking and excessive rotation data without having to connect to the OBDII port sets REDTAIL apart from other GPS fleet tracking companies.” 

REDTAIL Telematics continues to leverage the strong engineering capabilities of Plextek Limited to provide a unique value proposition to the GPS Fleet Management marketplace. Government figures show that improvement in driving behavior can save up to 33% on your fuel bills. Used properly the Redtail Telematics FMS can show fleet managers a return on investment in under three months.
