  • New telematics solutions evolve technology beyond vehicle tracking
  • Seminar will show how telematics can empower and inform strategic business decisions
  • Expo runs from 22nd to 23rd of September 2009

23rd September, 11:20am, Solutions Theatre, Service Management Expo, NEC Birmingham

John Wisdom, Sales and Marketing Director of Cybit, the UK’s leading online Telematics Service Provider, will give a seminar about the shift to a new generation of telematics solutions at the upcoming Service Management Expo in Birmingham. During the seminar, John Wisdom will explain how telematics is evolving beyond basic "track-and-trace" to end-to-end asset management solutions that inform board-level strategic decision making on costs, carbon emissions, customer service and compliance.

The 'next generation' of proven telematics solutions provide extended data collection and reporting capabilities that allow them to effectively track business performance across a range of areas, from environmental control to finance. The information allows critical business decisions to be made in line with corporate and government targets, including optimising fleet performance, operational cost reductions, carbon footprint measurement and compliance with duty of care regulations, as well as underpinning customer service enhancements. The data and reporting produced by the systems have also been used to optimise back office operations, for example, timesheets produced by the system can eliminate lengthy paper-based processes for HR and Payroll, further illustrating benefits across multiple departments.

"The Service Management Expo is an ideal platform for senior managers and directors to explore the significant board-level benefits that second generation telematics solutions can provide to businesses," commented John Wisdom, Sales and Marketing Director of Cybit. "The seminar provides an opportunity to explain how telematics can take businesses beyond detailed vehicle tracking to provide strategic business support, as the solutions can have a direct effect on bottom line profitability and performance.

"Even in the current economic climate, fleet telematics has become a priority for organisations for improving operational efficiencies across multiple departments. This is evidenced by the surge of Cybit customers that now purchase additional capabilities and consultation support beyond location-based services," John Wisdom continued.

Fleetstar-Online is Cybit's industry leading, scalable suite of Internet-based Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and vehicle tracking tools. The high quality data relating vehicle and job performance is captured in conjunction with location information reported and analysed through Fleetstar. This allows meaningful business decisions to be made using up to the minute information on operational performance. Powerful reporting capabilities facilitate effective management of operational costs and productivity; support strategic initiatives around Carbon footprint; and increase compliance with legislation including Duty of Care and Health and Safety.

The strategic importance of Fleetstar-generated information extends beyond vehicle tracking into the heart of the enterprise: Fleet derived information can be directly integrated into a range of business systems to improve the efficiency of the entire organisation. Fleetstar provides the business-critical information that organisations need to execute a clear and rapid path to return on investment.
