Nextraq Provides Skype Integration for GPS Fleet Tracking Solution

August 02, 2011 - Press Release

ATLANTA – NexTraq, the value leader of GPS vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions, announces Skype integration to Fleet Dispatch, its integrated GPS dispatching solution. Combined with SMS and Garmin dispatching software, the Skype integration enhances the solution by further improving communications between dispatchers and the field.

“We’ve put a great deal of resources into our research and development division to ensure we offer not only the most reliable solutions in the market, but also the most innovative,” states Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq. “On the heels of announcing the 8.8.2 release of our NexTraq platform, we believe our first to market Skype integration to Fleet Dispatch further differentiates us within the telematics industry.”

In honor of the Skype integration, NexTraq is offering free Polycom Communicator C100S devices to the first 25 people to submit a registration form. Please visit NexTraq's website to enter to win.

Considered “the ultimate hands-free Skype experience,” the Polycom Communicator C100S is Skype-certified and can be utilized with Fleet Dispatch. Based on the same technology used in Polycom's legendary line of triangular SoundStation® conference phones, the device offers the freedom of not wearing a headset for hands-free Skype calls. This new technology provides dispatchers more options to reach drivers and field workers, ultimately easing communication and making fleet operations more efficient.

“Whether dispatchers are trying to track and trace a driver, assign jobs or send mobile messages  regarding issues as they happen, they now have the option and convenience to do so hands-free via Skype,” states Scarbrough.
