Isotrak, a provider of GPS and fleet management systems, has introduced a service that provides visibility of third party logistics and supplier fleets. The service, 3iS FleetVision, is designed to create a single, fully measurable view of the fleet – not only a company’s private fleet, but its 3rd party suppliers as well.
Isotrak is headquartered in the United Kingdom. It began to focus heavily in the North America this year. The new service, it says, will enable fleets to gain real-time data and fully realize the benefits of the fleet management process.
“This is new territory and Isotrak has developed a solution that allows businesses to manage all the moving parts as a single entity,” says Alex Ognjanac, vice president of sales and marketing for Isotrak. “We’re at the forefront of a new breakthrough in supply chain management.”
Isotrak says that 3iS FleetVision feeds into its fleet management system, ATMSi, and brings additional value through:
- Measuring plan vs. actual within ATMSi’s job management capability
- Monitoring on-time departures, arrivals and advanced notice on true ETAs to both warehouses and vendor locations
- Taking into account all inbound and outbound deliveries in the entire supply chain
Customers can set KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to actively monitor real-time performance against the plan – in real time, by departure, arrival and ETA. When the plan goes off track, alerts are sent out, notifying transportation managers in real-time so that they can make the necessary changes and minimize disruption.
Isotrak says the 3iS FleetVision services has generated interest among North America’s largest retailers. Likewise, third party suppliers are motivated to get on board with 3iS, as it will allow them to be fully visible, accessible and measurable to their most important customers. Isotrak has in turn created The 3iS FleetVision Certified Supplier Program to streamline the convergence of a company’s private fleet and its third party supplier fleets.
Regardless of which GPS/fleet management system third party suppliers use, Isotrak’s 3iS FleetVision can integrate with other systems, while allowing third parties to maintain security and privacy to their other customers.
