Teletrac, Garden Grove, Calif., has released a new version of its Fleet Director vehicle fleet management software
. Fleet Director 7 has been enhanced with new capabilities including GPS-based tracking, vehicle and driver monitoring, dynamic routing with real-time traffic data and advanced navigation.

Fleet Director locates, tracks and monitors the position and operation of fleet vehicles, so that fleet managers can keep tabs on drivers. The system provides dispatchers with real-time tracking, route optimization and detailed reporting for advanced decision support and efficient regulatory compliance.

Fleet Director features SmartNav satellite navigation, real-time traffic information, stolen vehicle tracking and comprehensive reporting tools used to monitor mileage, vehicle use and alert managers to unauthorized use and unsafe driving behavior.

Teletrac has updated its SmartNav navigation to now provide the "fastest route" navigation in real time, the company says. The system integrates the latest color touch screen technology with two-way messaging and voice-prompted navigation.

The new dynamic dispatch capability helps fleets to better manage workflow between dispatchers and drivers. This includes a new integration with third-party job ticket software products, which simplifies job ticket management and coordination between dispatchers and drivers/technicians making site visits. New features include live traffic data and estimated time of arrival integrated with job ticketing.

In addition, the new version has 11 new reports available within its hours of service functionality.
