Teletrac Honored As Fleet Tracking Innovator
Teletrac, Inc. has been awarded the Silver Award for the Most Innovative Company of the Year at the 2014 Stevie Awards, in addition to being short-listed for the 2014 Telematics Update Award for Best Insurance Telematics Product, the company announced.
Earlier this year, Teletrac launched the Teletrac Drive app, an Android app that provides vehicle operators with safety and efficiency tools. The app's compliance and safety options include in-vehicle navigation and two-way messaging.
The company also introduced a portable in-vehicle display that runs on Samsung's 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3. The tablet software allows fleet operators to automate their daily in-vehicle tasks and stay guided while on the road, which reduces paper work, improves driver-dispatch communication and ensures safety, according to the company. Teletrac's Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 provides users with map views, in-cab navigation, two-way messaging, electronic driver logs, and driver vehicle inspection reports.
Teletrac continues to offer its driver behavior software feature, Safety Analytics, which tracks and scores driving metrics such as harsh braking, speeding, stop sign violations, and harsh turning. Teletrac expects more than 1,000 of its current customers to adopt Safety Analytics by the end of 2014.
Teletrac also continued its partnership with Verizon to deliver a robust mobile fleet management solution to its customers. Fleet managers can now connect with their vehicles regardless of distance or geographical location via the Verizon network.
