SAN DIEGO — Networkcar, a Reynolds and Reynolds company, announced on April 20 that it has been selected as a finalist for the second year in a row in the Annual Telematics Update Magazine Telematics Award program. Networkcar, which specializes in remotely monitoring vehicle performance and location, won the Best Commercial Vehicle Solution category in 2004. The Telematics Awards program recognizes suppliers, OEMs, service providers and software developers whose hard work and talent are bringing real value to telematics products and services. Telematics applications nominated include vehicle-based electronic systems, mobile telephony, vehicle tracking and positioning, online navigation and information services and emergency assistance. Entries were judged by an independent panel consisting of leading industry experts and researchers in the field of telematics. The winner of each category will be announced during the Telematics Update Awards Gala Dinner on May 16th in association with the Telematics Update 2005 Conference and Exhibition in Livonia, Mich. Networkfleet collects and organizes detailed performance and location-based information directly from a vehicle's engine computer and a global positioning system (GPS). This information is then transmitted wirelessly from the vehicle and made available to fleet managers via a personalized website accessible 24/7. Vehicle location and diagnostics information enable fleet managers to reduce operating costs, improve driver productivity and more efficiently manage their assets. On May 16-17, Networkcar will showcase Networkfleet in booth number 18 at the 2005 Telematics Update Exhibition.
