Fleetstar-AVL delivers real-time GPRS-based tracking and comprehensive reporting for less than 1 per vehicle per day
Cybit, the UK's leading online telematics service provider, has launched Fleetstar-AVL - a new affordable telematics solution that offers SME organisations all the benefits of Internet-based fleet and asset management for less than 1 per vehicle per day. Developed as an out-of-the-box' telematics solution for SME organisations, Fleetstar-AVL will be available exclusively through Cybit's expanding network of some 20 UK resellers and will provide SMEs with extensive telematics functionality including real-time GPRS-based tracking and comprehensive reporting.
Fleetstar-AVL is based on Cybit's market-leading Fleetstar-Online telematics solution, and will provide SMEs with the ability to capture live location-based information, use exception-based reports to measure performance and refine business processes, and ensure enhanced Duty of Care provision by analysing driving practices and live tracking. In addition, Fleetstar-AVL will help SMEs to assist in compliance with Health & Safety legislation and current Road Transport regulations.
"Fleetstar-AVL brings enterprise-class telematics functionality to the SME sector, and shows Cybit clearly offering the industry's broadest range of telematics solutions," commented the company's Chief Executive Officer, Richard Horsman. "We've already found that working with Cybit has given our resellers a significant service differentiator - now with our new out-of-the-box Fleetstar-AVL offering, we're also providing them with a particularly strong proposition for smaller to medium size organisations. With costs from less than 1 per vehicle per day, SMEs can benefit from Fleetstar-AVL's ability to help them reduce costs, maximise efficiency and deliver a rapid return on investment.
"Fleetstar-AVL gives our resellers the opportunity to also work with customers who don't need the full Cybit Fleetstar-Online telematics offering," he continued. "And because Cybit will support its SME customers with full installation and CD-based training, Fleetstar-AVL provides resellers with a strong value-added proposition for their portfolio."
"We're finding that there's a growing number of SME organisations in our target area who want their business to benefit from the advantages of telematics, but aren't always able to find the budget for a major technology project," commented Simon Jones, Managing Director of Fleetview Solutions, a Cybit reseller focusing on the Midlands region. "As an out-of-the-box offering, Fleetstar-AVL gives us an ideal solution to take to the SME market."
Key Fleetstar-AVL features include live vehicle tracking, exception reporting, a journey replay mode and customised reporting. SMEs can also benefit from in-depth mileage information, SMS messaging and live traffic information. Fleetstar-AVL is available via a standard web browser, and provides secure access to an unlimited number of users. Fleetstar-AVL also integrates with Smartnav from Trafficmaster to support drivers with speech-based directions throughout their journey.
Fleetstar-Online is Cybit's scalable Internet-based fleet and asset management solution that provides organisations with precisely the level of telematics functionality they require, while also ensuring an easy upgrade path so that it can evolve to meet changing business needs. Fleet vehicles are fitted with a small electronic in-vehicle-unit (IVU) which is tracked by GPS and then data is transmitted to Cybit's online control centre in real-time. It provides companies with a cost-effective, ASP-based, fleet management solution, which offers users anytime, anywhere access to the system via a standard web browser.
Fleetstar is available exclusively through Cybit's expanding UK reseller network.
