Fleetminder wanted a simple and intuitive way to visualise the locations of all vehicles in its fleets that use Fleetminder GPS devices. Dispatchers needed to display the current locations of all vehicles, and see the actual surroundings of each vehicle, including the streets on its route. Fleet managers wanted to improve efficiency by updating driving routes in real-time, based on data coming in from the vehicles. They were also looking to reduce costs by using GPS to locate vehicles that would soon require maintenance, and scheduling them for service when they were closest to maintenance shops.

50% decrease in inefficient driving

"The familiar Google Maps interface makes the Fleetminder system easy to use, reducing the need for customers to train their employees. The capabilities of the Street View and Geocoding APIs helped Fleetminder create a unique Web-based dashboard and system that keeps the company on the cutting edge of its industry and makes it stand out in the highly competitive asset-tracking, fleet management market… We have used many different telematics and map providers over the years, and none have gained as much appreciation from my end users as the Google Maps APIs for Work."

Mohit Khanna, CIO and Co-founder, Fleetminder

Fleetminder built a Web-based dashboard and solution that visualises vehicle location in real time and generates easy-to use reports monitoring their conditions. Dispatchers and fleet managers use the platform as a simple and intuitive means of monitoring and reporting on all vehicles with updates on their current location, speed and various vehicle attributes. Dispatchers coordinating multiple deliveries can use the system to generate the fastest and most efficient routes, saving time and fuel costs. The system also includes sophisticated tools for monitoring each vehicle in a fleet, including historical information about previously driven routes. Fleetminder hardware also tracks driving attributes, which allows fleet owners to determine the need for vehicle maintenance based on braking habits, distance travelled and tire pressure, among others factors.
