Verizon Networkfleet Adds More Frequent Tracking Info

December 12, 2013 - Press Release

Verizon's Networkfleet telematics system is now offering Configurable Update Rates (CUR) in its GPS devices to provide more frequent location information on fleet vehicles and assets, the company announced.

The new update rates can be set in 15-second increments up to two minutes for the Networkfleet 5000 series devices. The CURs can be set by the user and are fully integrated into Networkfleet's online GPS fleet tracking and engine diagnostic monitoring system.

The new update rates give fleet managers the ability to view vehicle routes with more specific detail for their particular needs to respond to customer service questions.

For example, street sweepers and snow plows have defined routes that have to be completed within a specific time frame. Passenger transportation providers such limousines and shuttles need to arrive at a customer location within a narrow time window. Now these organizations can respond to customers with even more accuracy as to specific times and dates and route locations for these vehicles, according to the company.

For both commercial and government fleets, more frequent location data for vehicles and assets can improve fleet operating efficiency and improve vehicle and driver safety.
