Campbell, CA, January 18, 2005- The DPL Group, a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced wireless and GPS products for the construction industry, announced today the release of the SkyHawk Vehicle Tracking System for mobile, over-the-road fleets. The SkyHawk is an advanced solution for remote monitoring and tracking of on-road assets to increase driver productivity while reducing fleet costs. Features include automatic vehicle location updates with address/city/state, street level mapping, infinite route history archive, start/stop identifications, speed alarms, idle vs. drive time identifications and proactive maintenance notifications.
The SkyHawk Vehicle Tracking System allows managers to track their assets continuously and accurately from a robust, Internet based software package. Once covertly installed on a vehicle, the rugged SkyHawk hardware unit wirelessly reports the asset’s activity, location and other operational data to the software. The resulting combination is a tool for intelligent, real time fleet management decisions delivering superior dispatching, less wasted driver time with improved driver safety. Using the SkyHawk’s operational reports to curb the effects of vehicle idling and excessive speeding, users will also see a significant reduction in fuel and maintenance costs.
The SkyHawk is managed from the same Internet software as DPL’s award winning TITAN Equipment Monitoring System, thus giving managers the industry’s first integrated solution for real time, side-by-side mapping and management of both on-road and off-road assets.
“In today’s competitive environment, managers are looking for an affordable fleet management solution to ensure the right service or delivery vehicle gets to the right destination safely and efficiently,” said Will Kelly, director of Telemetry Technologies at DPL. “In the SkyHawk we have combined those crucial requirements into a system which delivers a fast return on investment for any vehicle owner”.
“Furthermore, managers with an off road equipment fleet will see even more logistical improvements with the integrated mapping capabilities of both the SkyHawk and the TITAN Equipment Monitoring System,” added Kelly.
The DPL Group is a leading manufacturer with a 30-year history of designing and developing innovative solutions utilizing strong telemetry, systems engineering, and telecommunications expertise. These solutions are marketed throughout North America by DPL America, the company’s sales and marketing headquarters located in Campbell, California.
