Shaw Tracking provides fleet tracking tool for smartphones

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Shaw Tracking has announced a partnership with ExpressLane Data, which the company says will provide fleet managers with a new way to send out and receive information.

ExpressLane Data has developed a system for easily viewing and sending messages via mobile smartphones as well as through the Web or e-mail. The application allows fleet managers to work off-site while staying connected with their vehicle fleet.

The system automatically takes data from Shaw’s system, analyzes it and then sends it to the fleet manager’s smartphone in an easy to interpret format, Shaw Tracking announced. Managers can also send messages from their phone.

Features include: daily trip summaries with stops and starts and vehicle activity; truck speeds; distance; and hours on the road. Fleet managers can also use the system to search by truck, date and other fields to find information while in the field.

“ExpressLane Data makes it amazingly easy to track and communicate with your fleet in real-time on your desktop or mobile device,” said Joe Heaps, vice-president, ExpressLane Data. “The daily stop reports summarize stop/driving segments for our units enabling easy review of what a driver has done for the day and assists in reviewing driver/customer waiting times.”

“We are excited at Shaw Tracking to introduce this application to our customers as it allows for off-site data management, increased efficiencies and provides clear and organized information 24/7,” added Mike Ham, vice-president, Shaw tracking. “The ExpressLane Data system is an advanced technology working with satellite and cellular based solutions ensuring assets are always covered. ExpressLane gives the ability to track vehicles and send/receive messages from a simple interface on any handheld device. It synchronizes seamlessly with your existing web Portal account.”
