SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire -03/29/12)- inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, is now offering its leading fleet management and driver safety solution to the utilities industry. With inthinc's comprehensive fleet management and driver safety, utility fleet managers can now monitor driver behavior with features such as GPS-based vehicle tracking and in-cab verbal coaching alerts for speeding, idling, seat belt use and aggressive driving.
"The utility industry is a fast-paced business that needs a reliable system to ensure drivers are being safe on the road," said Pete Allen, Senior Vice President of Sales at inthinc. "inthinc is the only technology that actually speaks to drivers, coaching them and improving driving behavior in real-time. Our system has proven to reduce fleet accidents by as much as 90 percent and improve overall safety performance."
The inthinc solution communicates via satellite to the inthinc portal, allowing managers to reward safe driving behavior and identify drivers in need of additional training. Managers can receive instant notification via email or text message when a driver has been in an accident or committed a severe infraction.
In addition, inthinc offers Speed-by-Street™ technology, alerting drivers when they have exceeded the posted speed limit of any road. By controlling the amount of speeding violations, managers are able to conserve on fuel and increase MPG on its vehicles, both of which can be monitored on the inthinc portal.
inthinc shares the philosophy described by the American Public Works Association president in the Aug. 2011 issue of the APWA Reporter: "Regulation and safety standards are at the heart of an effective fleet operation," George Crombie said. "Ignoring safety and regulatory standards is like playing poker; sooner or later you are going to lose financially, get someone hurt, and lose credibility in your community."
