SALT LAKE CITY - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, announced it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. General Services Administration. Effective July 1, 2011, the new relationship (contract number: GS-07F-0614X) grants state and federal agencies access to purchase inthinc fleet management solutions.

inthinc solutions focus on real-time driver mentoring and fleet risk management. A device inside the vehicle not only verbally notifies drivers of unsafe behavior such as speeding (via the inthinc Speed-by-Street capabilities) and seatbelt use, but also wirelessly transmits vehicle performance data to a web-based management portal in real time. The inthinc Portal allows fleet managers to view GPS location, trips data (including breadcrumbing), idle time and MPG, driver performance scores by group or by individual, and other customizable cost-saving and safety dashboards. In addition, inthinc offers cell and text detection and collision avoidance capabilities. 

A natural fit to meeting the needs of federal, state and local fleets, inthinc has a long history of developing technologyto help organizations stay compliant with regulations published by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). For example, in order to help customers stay compliant with a proposed rule by the FMCSA, inthinc offers electronic hours-of-service driver logs through the company’s electronic on-board recorder (EOBR)—including automated IFTA tax reporting—and also addresses safety criteria outlined in the FMCSA ‘CSA’ program.

“We are pleased to work with the GSA to offer inthinc fleet management and driver safety solutions to agencies across the country,” said Todd Follmer, CEO, inthinc Technology Solutions. “Our technology is a unique system that drives value for fleets by focusing on accident prevention and cost-cutting capabilities for fleets of any size.”
