Convoy Technologies' new Videomatics dashboard features live-video streaming, video playback and video search capabilities.

The Videomatics platform gives fleet owners and managers a way to respond to critical events, reduce liability, reduce insurance costs and coach drivers, says the company.

"Now, fleets can take immediate action to protect their businesses," said Blake Gasca, Convoy co-founder and CEO. "Our highly efficient video compression engine delivers live video to fleet owners and managers, no matter where they are. And, our new video search feature is an industry first."

In addition to the dashboard, Convoy released the Videomatics web portal, offering feature parity with the iOS app and allowing fleet managers to access data from a variety of devices.

Videomatics offers a range of features including:

Playback Video: Administrators can instantly access video and event locations through the web portal, just as they can with their iOS app, allowing them to immediately begin an investigation for any vehicle.

Video clip request: Administrators can perform video search requests through the portal. Files are automatically delivered as custom video clips to the web portal and the administrator is notified via email alert, simplifying administrative tasks and saving time.

Vehicle locations with Convoy Search: Identify all vehicles in a defined location during any four-hour window, based on location, date, and time search criteria. Videomatics automatically delivers the requested details to the administrator via email and stores them in the cloud.

New, data-rich fleet dashboard: The dashboard gives administrators immediate access to alert data and fleet trends, intelligently fed by the Convoy Technologies video review team and machine learning.

Dashboard features include:

  • Historical fleet performance metrics--from last week to the last year
  • Alert search by vehicle, date, and time, and alert action summaries
  • Driver check-in capabilities
  • Data analysis and reporting to support CEO, fleet manager, and IT department decision-making

New to the web portal and iOS app, alerts further simplify fleet management, allowing administrators to direct their attention to the most critical events first:

Yellow - Identifies smaller infractions

Orange - Triggers coachable driver safety and productivity events

Red - Triggers immediate action on critical events

Each alert identifies the alert-type, video, timestamp, date, address, and vehicle speed for the event in question.

GPS notification center

Now available through the Videomatics app and web portal, administrators can receive real-time notifications each time a driver action triggers an alert. These notifications identify vehicle locations at the time of the alert, as well as throughout the day, including starts, stops, and a breadcrumb trail.

And, for large fleets, administrators now have the additional ability to import a vehicle information excel sheet to bulk populate truck numbers, driver names, and other relevant information.
