Rhino Fleet Tracking has integrated Amazon Alexa into its fleet tracking application that's used by commercial fleets for GPS tracking, the company announced.
Customers are able to access and make changes to their fleet tracking data using voice commands through Rhino Fleet Tracking with Amazon Alexa. For example, a customer will be able to ask, "Alexa, ask Rhino, 'Where are my drivers?'" or "Alexa, ask Rhino to assign driver 'ABC' to truck '123.'"
Through an online application, Android or Apple iOS devices Rhino Fleet Tracking customers have access to over 15 reports and features including speed, geofencing, and after hourse reports; travel history; driver management; and service management.
"While our fleet tracking system offers a great variety of tools for fleet managers and owners, we find that the simplest of tasks are performed most often," said Steven Van Ooyen, CEO of Rhino Fleet Tracking. "So, if we can enable our GPS tracking customers the ability to locate their drivers or vehicles simply by asking."
As explained by Amazon, "Amazon Alexa is built in the cloud so it is always getting smarter. Users can ask Alexa to play music, hear the news, check weather, control their smart home."
