Telogis enhances OnTrack Fleet Management System with satellite imagery, advanced maintenance and fuel efficiency module

OnTrack 6.1 Offers Innovative Management Capabilities for Increased Efficiency and Reduced Operating Costs

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2008 -- Telogis today introduced version 6.1 of its OnTrack vehicle tracking system with new features and capabilities that optimize operations and fleet performance in ways that enable companies to dramatically improve fuel efficiency, field personnel productivity and customer satisfaction. Telogis OnTrack 6.1 is being deployed to all customers through Telogis' unique software-as-a-service model which allows companies to benefit from product enhancements without having to upgrade the software themselves.

The new OnTrack 6.1 provides real-time access to on-board diagnostics of individual vehicles, giving fleet managers immediate access to mpg data, fuel tank levels and other data that supports companies' fuel efficiency initiatives. Other key upgrades include routing with drive time optimization and turn-by-turn directions, two-way messaging, and advanced maintenance reports.

"This new version of OnTrack maintains the intuitive, highly usable Web-based interface and the software-as-a-service model that sets it apart from other solutions," said Jason Koch, President of Telogis OnTrack Division. "OnTrack is a source of critical business intelligence in a format that lets people focus on managing their fleet and saving money rather than wasting time figuring out how to install and use the technology."

Telogis customers will also benefit from OnTrack's enhanced features for managing maintenance, monitoring vehicle idling, accessing vehicle diagnostics and integrating high-resolution satellite imagery. Each of these is designed to help companies reduce costs, improve productivity and optimize operations.

Key features of OnTrack 6.1 include:

-- Integration of high resolution satellite imagery, providing fleet managers with visual information not available in maps, such as vegetation, topographical features, obstacles on commercial properties, and other off-road information.

-- Sophisticated tracking of service histories for individual vehicles, including an alert system that automatically instructs fleet managers when to schedule preventative maintenance.

-- Real-time access to on-board diagnostics of individual vehicles giving fleet managers immediate access to mpg data, fuel tank levels and other data that supports companies' fuel efficiency initiatives.

-- Detailed tracking of vehicle idling, providing fleet managers with critical information to reduce excessive idling. This data also allows fleet managers to stay compliant with fuel tax reporting requirements by providing idling data by vehicle and state/province in a format that supports IFTA reporting.

-- An enhanced dashboard that synthesizes the information that OnTrack gathers and analyzes, presenting it in a visual, color-coded manner that allows managers to monitor key parameters related to their fleet, such as fuel efficiency, on-time/late arrivals, idling time, speeding, maintenance alerts, etc.

-- Monitoring of vehicles that exceed posted speed limits, enabling companies to reduce moving violations and liability.

-- "Matchmaking" function that enables fleet managers to tag individual field employees and vehicles with information about skills and equipment and ensure that the employee and vehicle assigned to a work order are appropriate for the job.

-- Valuable reports called "Insight Alerts" which utilize OnTrack's analytics and reporting capabilities to provide proactive updates and recommendations about how to improve fleet performance.

-- Additional language support for companies with multi-national operations and multi-lingual staffs.

OnTrack enables fleet managers to improve productivity and reduce operating costs by providing secure, remote access to real-time GPS vehicle and driver information as well as providing route optimization and handheld products for fleet optimization.
