The announcement follows the recent introduction of PeopleNet's BLU Driver Center, a driver-oriented on-board platform open to virtually unlimited applications and USB devices.
PeopleNet's new BLU In-Cab Application Platform, known as BLU ICAP, provides the tools software developers can use to enable PeopleNet's BLU to perform whatever functions an individual fleet might require. Tailored Solutions is a new group within PeopleNet that will work with fleet customers to develop those solutions, whether they involve in-cab applications or back-office functions.
"Whatever a fleet needs tracked, flagged or automated, PeopleNet has the knowledge, the creativity and the 'openicity' to get it done," said CEO Ron Konezny.
BLU ICAP includes an API, or Application Programming Interface, in the Microsoft .NET framework. It also includes an extensive software developer's kit, or SDK, to support whatever software project a fleet might undertake.
PeopleNet's Tailored Solutions practice will provide development know-how for fleets without in-house developers. It will also work with developers in fleets with larger IT departments.
