The solution, intended for local service fleets, is a combination of Qualcomm's Service Fleet Manager and the GreenRoad 360 service.
The solution will allow fleets to install a single in-vehicle hardware platform, use one data plan, and access fleet management and driving behavior improvement applications. The combined service is available initially for commercial vehicle fleets in North America and the United Kingdom.
"Their partnership will, for the first time, enable fleet operators to obtain a combined MRM and Driving Behavior Management solution from a single source," said Clem Driscoll of C.J. Driscoll and Associates, an analyst in mobile resource management for fleets. "There is clear synergy in the integration of these solutions, which should result in significant improvements in fleet productivity as well as reductions in operating costs and losses due to accidents."
Qualcomm's Service Fleet Manager mobile resource management system uses GPS technology to give fleets visibility into their assets and provide an immediate snapshot of critical vehicle information through a web-based interface. GreenRoad 360 is a driving behavior improvement service with real-time, in-vehicle feedback and comprehensive visibility into those maneuvers that most affect safe driving, fuel efficiency and emissions. GreenRoad 360 combines live, individually-tailored driver coaching with web-based applications that continuously rate driving skills.
