Teletrac Named Best Telematics System
by Dennis Jaconi
A big day for Teletrac! We were just named the Best Telematics System in the 2013 Techies
. The annual awards sponsored by BusinessCar, highlight the best in fleet and commercial vehicle technology. According to BusinessCar, the awards focus "...not only [on] the gadgets contained within the vehicles, but also software to enable fleet managers to more efficiently source company cars."
This year marks the fifth year of the BusinessCar Techies Awards as they continue to honor and celebrate the very best in modern and innovative methods of operating vehicles for commercial purposes.
“The telematics category was one of the hardest-fought, but Teletrac’s quality showed through, especially impressing the judges for its ability to try and improve driver behavior through monitoring and rating employees, and then offering hints and tips,” said BusinessCar editor Paul Barker. “This is another example of exactly the sort of intelligent use of technology that the BusinessCar Techies are designed to reward.”
The BusinessCar Techies – or Fleet Technology Awards – are the only prizes in fleet that reward technological innovation. Now in their fifth year, the eleven categories are judged by an expert panel, and reward those companies best using technology to commercial fleets run their vehicles in a cleaner, less time consuming, safer and more efficient way.
Teletrac's GPS fleet software, Fleet Director®, was honored with the award due to its powerful driver monitoring capabilities, such as the ability to gauge harsh braking, speeding and stop sign violations. This insight into driver behavior has helped companies produce reports that allow fleet operators and insurance companies to make informed business decisions. In turn, these features have allowed companies to deliver a 30% reduction in their insurance premiums in addition to decreasing the risk of fleet driver accidents by 20%.
