Web based application aids fleet and mobile asset management

M2M products and services provider Numerex has launched Fastrack Fleet for fleet and mobile asset management.

Fastrack Fleet integrates a configurable web-based application with monitoring devices that can connect via satellite or cellular. The power to aggregate, analyse and take action on data collected from a wide variety of vehicles and assets in one integrated application console helps manage increasingly complex fleet and logistics operations.

Beyond standard vehicle tracking and telemetry features, it also includes a business rules platform to help enterprises manage their mobile assets. This platform is configurable to produce exception reports such as geofencing or speed violation reports as well as summary reports of aggregated vehicle data such as idle time reporting.

Another benefit for fleet owners is a more intuitive web-based administration console, allowing the configuration of various rules and user privileges including blocking users from certain application modes or functions.

“After thoroughly researching our customers’ needs and the evolution of the market, we have developed a game-changing solution for the industry,” said Darren Koenig, vice president of marketing and products at Numerex.

“Centralising the management of complex data from a variety of devices while simplifying the administration of different user roles enables Fastrack Fleet to drive an immediate return on investment for our customers.”

Numerex will continue to develop features for Fastrack Fleet that will enable VARs to differentiate and provide their customers with unique configurability. One of the first enhancements for the US version will be an ignition-disable function that lets the system administrator remotely disable a vehicle’s starter. This prevents the engine from re-starting once the vehicle is parked and turned off until the ignition is re-enabled in the application.

Other enhancements include adding the recently launched satellite-based asset tracker – Numerex Satellite Flex, which supports wireless sensor data in addition to location information – to the list of compatible devices, creating an environment where both cellular and satellite-based asset management data can be managed in one application.
