New Fleet Management Tools Save Time, Money

Fleet operators are continually seeking ways to reduce fuel costs, optimize travel routes, monitor driver behavior, minimize idle times and ensure cargo and driver security.

To help achieve those goals, ORBCOMM, a provider of M2M (machine-to-machine) and IoT (Internet of Things) solutions, has added new features to its fleet management portfolio, including the cellular-only SkyWave IDP-782 device and the viaFleet Web application for tracking, monitoring and managing trucks, railcars and other mobile assets.

The SkyWave IDP-782 device is designed for vehicle tracking and driver monitoring applications specifically in areas where cellular coverage is widely available. Meanwhile, the viaFleet application enables fleet operators to see the location of mobile assets in realtime, monitor driver behavior, streamline vehicle maintenance schedules and communicate with drivers.

The solution offers an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical interface and works with the IDP-782 to display the location of assets on a map in realtime. It also tracks asset movements with breadcrumb reports and supports advanced reporting capabilities on speeding events, dwelling times, geofence access and asset health, allowing customers to improve operational efficiencies and productivity.
