US Fleet Tracking’s return to this year’s Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo International provided an opportunity to introduce visitors to its live GPS tracking system.

“We had a good response. We were very pleased with the show itself,” says Richard Banks, national sales director for US Fleet Tracking. “We were very well received. We’ve written quite a bit of business.”

The Web-based interface updates every 10 seconds and can be used on any mobile device – Android, iPhone, iPad, Kindle – or Web-enabled PC.

Using the program, a fleet owner can have a host of reporting functions: stop-start, aggressive driving and excessive idling, Banks explains. “We have preventive maintenance systems built into it that allow you to schedule for oil changes and tire rotations, so it’s a complete package.”

The system can monitor any number of vehicles. There’s no software to install or service contract to purchase. “We don’t lock customers into a long-term commitment,” he says.

Text alerts and email reports provide fleet managers with at-a-glance updates on unauthorized movement, excessive speed and geo-fence alerts. It also can be used to guide drivers through unfamiliar routes.

The software keeps 90 days of history. “We can keep up to a year at no additional cost,” Banks says. “It allows you to go back and look at your fleet two months ago, where somebody was, what they were doing; or if there were some billing issues, you can see how long they were at the job site.”

The system also ties into the National Weather Service. An overlay provides a comprehensive look at current and approaching weather conditions, enabling drivers to take evasive action. Another feature includes live traffic data that warns drivers and dispatchers of traffic delays and road closures. 405/749-1105; www.usft.com.
