Navman Wireless announces iPhone tracking app

Customers of PTC Tracking, one of Navman Wireless's preferred east of England suppliers of vehicle tracking services, are now able to manage their entire vehicle fleet from the palms of their hands thanks to an innovative iPhone app being offered by the firm. 

Based on the Navman Wireless’ powerful OnlineAVL2 desktop tracking software, the app enables users to locate drivers on detailed maps and route them to their next destination.  

“To date, many vehicle tracking users have been unable to take full advantage of their systems as they can’t always be at their office computer,” said Paul Wilkinson, Business Manager for Colchester-based PTC Tracking. 

“This app will give customers total freedom to control their mobile workforce regardless of where they are, and could revolutionise the way some companies manage their fleets as a consequence.” 

Comprehensive functionality means the app also features instant messaging so managers can communicate with drivers and provide them with detailed instructions on their next job. In addition, users can retrospectively view vehicle movements to determine where vehicles have been during the day and how long for. 

“The rapid advancement and popularity of smartphones has opened the door to many exciting possibilities for the vehicle tracking industry,” added Paul.  

The iPhone-only app is now available to download from Apple’s App Store.
