Televigation Automates Field Monitoring and Data Collection
Televigation, a provider of wireless location-based services, announces the release of TeleNavTrack v3.0, a mobile phone-based Mobile Resource Management (MRM) service with integrated global positioning system (GPS) navigation, tracking, job scheduling with exception monitoring, mileage tracking and wireless forms. The service is targeted for the transportation and field services industries, enabling companies to increase safety and productivity of their field workers and assets.
With TeleNavTrack v3.0, administrators can get real-time alerts when a vehicle exceeds a certain speed so they can take immediate action to correct hazardous behavior. Administrators can also get real-time alerts if a vehicle is stopped at a location for too long, when a job has not started on time and is running late or when the vehicle enters or leaves a specified area (or geo-fence).
With the new mileage reporting feature, companies are now able to run reports and view mileage accrued on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Mileage data can also be totaled and viewed by the State in which it was accumulated. Reports can be exported to Excel for further analysis and to PDF format for archival. This helps transportation companies with their DoT (Department of Transportation) Fuel Logs and vehicle maintenance.
The wireless forms capability allows companies to collect field data electronically to reduce paper processing time and repetitive data entry. Forms for inspections, field surveys and customer visits, to name a few, can now be wireless enabled for real-time data capture with TeleNavTrack. Wireless forms can be created quickly through an easy-to-use Web site where the administrator can create data fields by specifying the type of field (checkboxes, numbers, text, etc) and then saving the fields as a form. Results captured can be viewed in real-time on the TeleNavTrack Web site or exported into Microsoft Excel.
"With the growing capabilities of mobile phones, companies can now extract even more value from their wireless investment by utilizing productivity and safety features, enhancing services on their wireless phones," said Sal Dhanani, senior director of marketing at Televigation. "TeleNavTrack allows companies to improve productivity with capabilities such as wireless forms, mileage reporting and electronic dispatching while also providing an extra level of security with applications such as real-time speeding alerts, GPS location and GPS navigation, all in one easy-to-use package."
TeleNavTrack, a fully hosted 100% Web-based service, is now available at www.telenavtrack.com. The monthly price starts at $9.99 per month, per device for the basic service, which includes GPS tracking, timesheets and reporting.
