inthinc introduces speed-by-street, verbal in-cab mentoring

inthinc Technology Solutions Inc. (Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A.), a telematics company centered on fleet management, recently introduced a technology that provides in-cab verbal mentoring that tells drivers if they are speeding, aren't wearing their seatbelt, or driving aggressively. According to inthinc, for speeding notifications a database of speed limits for every street segment across the United States in included on the dashboard. This data, known as Speed-by-Street, enables verbal speeding notifications to drivers whenever and wherever they may exceed the posted speed limit, according to inthinc.

As many federal agencies operate fleets across a large geographical area, inthinc fleet management reporting also includes GPS tracking as well as a live fleet view of where each vehicle is located in real time, says the company. Fleet managers may also set customized geo-zones around a defined region, enabling automated text or email alerts when drivers cross the defined boundaries.

The technology also provides government fleet managers with regional or individual driver scorecards -- a rating based on driver behavior. According to the company, customers typically reduce fleet-wide speeding by over 80% within the first month of using the system.

"With the increased focus on cutting costs throughout the various government entities, we have made an effort to help fleet managers drive down expenses by providing drivers with the ability to operate their vehicles more efficiently," says Todd Follmer, CEO of inthinc Technology Solutions.
