PeopleNet Announces ‘Aggressive’ Expansion into Energy Sector

SAN ANTONIO, TX. — PeopleNet will be drilling deeper into the U.S. energy services transportation sector, the company announced today at its 11th Annual User Conference in San Antonio, TX.

“We’re fast-tracking our product expansion by combining PeopleNet fleet mobility solutions with proven technologies from GEOTrac, the leading technology supplier to Canada’s energy services sector, and ALK Technologies, a global leader in transportation technology and navigation software,” explained PeopleNet’s Cheif Technology Officer, Mark Botticelli.

Conference attendees will be learning about fleet mobility tools specifically for energy services, like monitoring to ensure vehicles and drivers are on the correct route for hauling dangerous materials through cities and towns from oil and gas sites.

PeopleNet will also be demonstrating its Energy Services Portal, which, among other things, provides reporting and analytics, real-time energy-specific mapping for North American private lease-road and well coverage. The Portal also has CoPilot Truck Energy, an in-cab turn-by-turn navigation program that’s integrated with oil and gas filed mapping to help guide drivers directly to the well site.

PeopleNet said their aggressive expansion into the sector came from a growing number of customers requesting new solutions, as well as the sector’s growth itself. The list for the sector’s needs is big one: two-way messaging and global positioning systems in remote areas that are buoyed by tri-mode communications — cellular, satellite, and WiFi; vehicle tracking to and from well sites, coordination of teams moving rigs, and location monitoring of equipment and least-cost routing.
