Zonar has announced the Ground Traffic Control FieldView fleet management application for Android to help customers locate and navigate assets on mapping applications like Google Maps.

Zonar’s Ground Traffic Control FieldView app is part of the industry-wide shift toward development of mobile platforms and is designed to bring basic fleet tracking capabilities to mobile devices.

The app will be available from the Google Play Store in the second quarter of 2017 and is designed to work with devices running Android 4.2 and later.

“Nearly everyone has a smartphone now and we wanted to make it easy for fleet managers to get the data they need without having to learn how to use a new system or tool,” said Larry Jordan, senior vice president of product development at Zonar. “Our customers have told us a majority of their fleets use Android (or mobile devices) while on the road so this addition to our portfolio gives them a simple way to track assets and information at any given time.”

Features of Zonar's Ground Traffic Control FieldView app include:

  • Asset location tracking and navigation
  • Asset identification and operational status updates
  • Customizable permissions to control user access to assets and information
  • Easy viewing experience designed for large and small fleets
  • Simple cross functionality with preferred mobile navigation apps like Google Maps

“We're constantly looking for ways to make sure fleet managers have everything they need at their fingertips no matter where the road takes them,” said Jordan. “This is the first iteration of the app, but we fully expect to roll out new features and platforms based on the needs of our users, allowing us to reach an even wider audience.”
