New Zealand telematics company International Telematics (ITL) and Gen-i have signed a partnership deal under which ITL will use the Telecom mobile network for its fleet management solutions.
ITL executive director Stephen Brown says ITL will align with Gen-i as a long-term premium technology partner.
“Telematics is the expression coined to explain the integration of telecommunications and realtime information,” he says. “The concept has huge application in the transportation space where we operate.”
He describes the arrangement as a machine to machine partnership deal.
“The technology provides vehicle fleet managers with detailed realtime information about the whereabouts of their fleet, the condition of the loads the vehicles are carrying, and the performance of the drivers – for each and every truck, refrigerated trailer or unit,” he says.
As part of the deal, Telecom SIM cards will be fitted into ITL customers’ in-vehicle computers.
‘”We’ve built in the ability for our clients to easily scale up. They are comfortable doing so with us because we have products and partners such as Gen-i, who understand the needs of business operating at an enterprise level,” Brown says.
