Navman Wireless has announced the availability of a consolidated telematics portal specifically designed for the management of mixed equipment fleets in a range of industries including construction, resources and mining.
Navman claims that Qtanium Connect is an industry-first solution, which complies with the AEMP Telematics Data Standard.
It provides one-stop fleet-wide visibility without adding third-party hardware to machines that already have factory-installed Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) telematics.
Furthermore, it also supports the integration of data into the enterprise office system for broader business use, providing reliable data to help reduce inefficiencies and increase productivity in a single application.
Using Qtanium Connect, fleet operators can request data access credentials from each OEM represented in their fleet in a single portal.
Data from each reporting source is securely transmitted to operators’ servers and then aggregated for use in Qtanium Connect’s widgets, dashboards, maps and reports.
The company commissioned third-party developers to build Qtanium Connect.
The information Qtanium Connect makes available includes in-depth jobsite analysis like fuel burn, asset utlisation and engine management, work tool tracking, engine data reports, preventive maintenance schedules and beyond.
Related information such as machine inspection data and photographs of machine damage can be imported into the system for further data consolidation.
“Over the past decade, contractors with mixed fleets have been increasingly limited in their use of telematics by the fractured nature of the reporting," says Ian Daniel, vice president Asia Pacific, Navman.
"Only the largest fleets supported by sizable IT teams and exceptional budgets have been able to afford to consolidate the data from each OEM website.
“With Qtanium Connect, organisations of any size and budget will be able to streamline reporting to maximise the potential of their equipment.
"The single view of all telematics data available with Qtanium Connect - regardless of the source - gives fleet managers insights and controls that can help drive new fleet efficiencies and profitability."
Other value-added features include the ability to sort reports by OEM, analyse data by machine category, and click to access real-time weather reporting from each jobsite to help fleet managers and equipment rental companies quickly ascertain the reason for low real-time utilisation rates.
The Qtanium Connect portal can integrate with all types of tracked equipment from generators, lighting towers to heavy construction vehicles and machinery.
Navman Wireless specialises in GPS-based fleet optimisation products and services, including real-time vehicle tracking and analytics that enable companies to monitor, measure and improve operational costs and efficiencies.
The company’s technology, in tandem with Teletrac Inc., currently tracks more than 500,000 vehicles owned by over 40,000 organisations on five continents, making it one of the world's largest fleet management providers.
