Networkfleet, a provider of wireless fleet management, announced that it will provide complementary emergency roadside assistance with the purchase of the 4200 GPS fleet tracking system. Previously provided only with the Networkfleet 3500 diagnostic monitoring system, roadside assistance is now standard on all Networkfleet products at no extra cost. Roadside assistance includes stolen vehicle tracking and recovery, towing, locksmith service, battery boost, fuel delivery and other critical roadside services and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

According to the company, the Networkfleet 4200 combines GPS location tracking with an easy-to-use intuitive online fleet management system; the rugged automotive-grade device has a simple one-plug installation and is backed by Networkfleet’s full service and support. In addition to roadside assistance, the 4200 includes a standard three-year warranty and is available with a bundled-pricing option that requires no upfront costs.

Networkfleet says the roadside assistance program provides the following services for each vehicle in the fleet:
• Towing: Up to 25 miles of towing for any size vehicle from the point of breakdown to the nearest service provider or other specified location;
• Locksmith service: Locksmith services are provided at an easily accessible location.
• Battery boost: Vehicle jump-start and/or performance of minor mechanical adjustments to start the car;
• Tire change: Flat tire replacement with the vehicle’s available spare tire;
• Fuel delivery: Delivery of an emergency supply of fuel to the site. If necessary, the vehicle will be towed to the nearest gas station; and
• Winch: Extraction of the vehicle when it is stuck on ice, in mud or snow on a normally traveled roadway.

“Reliable location tracking, together with roadside assistance and stolen vehicle recovery, add more layers of protection for drivers and their vehicles,” says Keith Schneider, president and chief executive officer of Networkfleet.
