Networkfleet Inc. has announced the launch of a new streamlined user interface designed to provide fast, easy access to detailed vehicle performance and fleet tracking information, larger maps, better access to reports and easy, intuitive navigation. With an entirely rebuilt infrastructure that takes advantage of the latest technology innovations, the resulting design requires 50 percent fewer mouse clicks to retrieve detailed data on fleet operations, according to the company.

Developed as a part of an initiative to support Networkfleet’s rapid subscriber growth, the new interface was designed with direct input from fleet owners and managers across Networkfleet’s customer base. While powerful enough for sophisticated fleets with thousands of vehicles, the new interface also is easy to use, allowing small fleets to get up and running quickly, according to the company; in addition, the system includes integrated help and online video training to shorten the learning curve.

Networkfleet says it user interface includes these features and benefits:
• Intuitive navigation – Left-side display of all vehicles with simple tabs for GPS tracking, performance, alerts, diagnostics and services to provide faster access to data for large and small fleets. Vehicles can be selected by groups or attributes;
• Vehicle dashboard – At-a-glance view of the most important vehicle information, including location tracking, Networkfleet engine diagnostic data and vehicle performance information such as speed history, MPG trend and fuel efficiency;
• Full-screen maps – A larger map view with configurable map controls that allows for more flexibility when viewing map items such as geofences and landmarks; and
• Powerful reporting – Instant access to sophisticated reports in a few mouse clicks, including idle time, fleet utilization, stop detail and many others, so that fleet managers can reduce operating costs.

“We designed this new user interface to work the way our customers work, while also building a platform that will accommodate rapid growth in the number and size of Networkfleet customers,” says Keith Schneider, president and chief executive officer of Networkfleet. “This new design gives more power to fleet managers by making critical data easily accessible. Together with our bundled pricing and three-year warranty, fleets can immediately start experiencing the benefits of wireless fleet management.”
