On-board vehicle system gives fleet managers and company owners around-the-clock information about fleet vehicle usage and driver activities

ORLANDO, Fla. – (April 9, 2001) – With well over ten million fleet vehicles on the road today representing companies large and small across America, the challenge of keeping track of fleet operations has never been greater. Central Florida-based FleetBoss Global Positioning Solutions, Inc. has developed the first fleet management system to provide fleet managers and company owners with active, real-time automatic vehicle location (AVL) and comprehensive “passive” vehicle data based on GPS satellite signals in one customer-defined solution package. This system is the first and only system on the market to combine the immediacy of AVL instant vehicle information with the utility of permanently stored vehicle operational data.

“The beauty of this system is that it allows complete capture of vehicle usage data without requiring any action by the driver,” said Larry Carroll, president of FleetBoss. “The Boss ® allows the driver to get the job done, and the record-keeping of vehicle stops, driving time and mileage is completely automated.”

In fact, even the download of vehicle data is automatic; when the truck or van returns to home base, all stored information is transmitted via 900 MHz radio signal to the base station computer, where reports are generated and stored permanently. This download is complementary to the wireless vehicle information and pages available to fleet managers while the vehicle is traveling its route. The entire process is virtually transparent to the driver.

FleetBoss Global Positioning Solutions, Inc. produces and distributes The Boss fleet management systems (FMS) and FleetBoss AUTOGRAPHICS™ software throughout the United States and in select international markets. The Boss ® gives businesses unprecedented ability to manage and monitor their vehicle operations around the clock, anywhere in the country.
