Launched earlier in the year, TRACKER Vision is the result of an exclusive partnership between TRACKER and Garmin, to combine TRACKER’s fleet telematics technology and back-office expertise with Garmin’s satellite navigation units, combining fleet tracking with navigation, job allocation reporting and driver communication provided through a customisable and secure website.
The launch of the new Vision Sprint product now means that fleets that do not require every vehicle to be constantly monitored to switch their Garmin-Supported TRACKER units between vehicles – providing an adaptable product.
TRACKER said this will benefit those businesses that may want to utilise fleet tracking but have been unable to in the past due to its fixed nature, such as lone workers, or grey fleet vehicles that just require one-off monitoring.
David Wilson, sales & services director for TRACKER, said: ‘Telematics is becoming more common place amongst businesses that recognise the cost savings and efficiencies they can bring. With that popularity, certain stakeholders have been asking for an exchangeable product that suits their day-to-day requirements – TRACKER Vision Sprint answers this need. By offering a plug and play sat nav device that incorporates fleet tracking, units can be transferred quickly between vehicles, adding a flexibility to telematics previously unheard of.'
TRACKER Vision Sprint uses an in-cab Garmin terminal, allowing managers to pin point location of an asset and offering journey playback, starts, stops and other timed events, reporting, alerts – including customised alerts.
Wilson concluded: ‘At TRACKER, we are always looking at the market to see not just what’s needed now, but what’s next. TRACKER Vision Sprint is a completely new offering for the telematics market that anticipates what fleet operators want and gives it to them now.’
