MiX Telematics has launched MyMix Tracking, an extension of its MyMix driver engagement app. It says the new product is a solution to deliver “innovative app-based tracking for vehicles and drivers.”
MyMiX Tracking utilises mobile phone technology to enable the real-time tracking of drivers while also recording, measuring and enabling real-time self-correction of risky behaviour events such as speeding, harsh braking or acceleration and mobile phone use. The app also provides drivers with information and alerts to improve their driving style, including immediate in-cab audible feedback.
MiX says that the product is fully compatible with coach, bus and minibus use. It adds that the app-based solution “is a cost-effective and impactful alternative” to hard-wired devices on a vehicle, which it notes makes it highly suitable for those used on short-term rental periods or which are leased.
Says Sales Director at MiX Telematics Europe Richard Adams: “Fleets with mixed vehicle types and short- and long-term vehicle contracts through a wide variety of operations will now ensure that even non-core fleets are encompassed within the MiX Fleet Manager platform, thereby providing meaningful information in conjunction with the app for our customers.
“We pride ourselves on ensuring that our customers’ requirements are met and that they achieve excellent results with our solutions. MyMiX Tracking will help us to ensure that this continues throughout Europe, in every industry.”
