FleetGenie a new mobile data and fleet control system incorporating vehicle tracking, route optimisation and mobile device management, has been launched. FleetGenie enables any organisation with a mobile workforce and fleet operation to benefit from advanced routing, embedded satellite navigation, tracking and workflow management technology, which could save them up to 30 per cent on fleet running costs.
FleetGenie is a unique hardware independent and fully integrated low-cost solution that will run on any GPS-enabled hand-held computer or PDA using the Microsoft Windows operating system. It is fully customisable and highly flexible, making it is suitable for a wide range of applications such as van delivery, service engineers, skip hire, asset management, inspectors, field engineers, insurance loss adjusters and mobile sales.
A breakthrough of this new system is said to be the mobile application with embedded satellite navigation. This distinct approach eliminates the need to interface the route optimisation software with additional navigation software or hardware. In addition, FleetGenie's architecture has been designed to make data interchange with any back office business system simple.
Using the MobileGenie rapid application development system, complex, high-performance mobile software applications can be designed, changed or developed in minimum time without the need for programming experience. Most applications can be developed in days rather than taking weeks or even months of bespoke programming using traditional methods.
In addition to the standard workflow data managed by the FleetGenie server solution partners can easily add further functionality to suit any application that needs instant access to job critical information on the user's server. For example, the system will provide remote access to live stock information or pricing. User access to the system is fully configurable to suit the particular application.
The FleetGenie management dashboard allows control and monitoring of all functions including full mobile device management, vehicle tracking and the report designer.
FleetGenie is seeking vertical sector specialists to help promote the new system to the mass market. Mark Dale-Lace, director of FleetGenie, says: "This new mobile workforce and fleet management product will open new opportunities for back office software providers and solutions specialists as it is quick and easy to integrate with any vertical market solution."
