      Navman Wireless Adds Driver Scorecards to Fleet Tracking Platform

OnlineAVL2 Upgrade Measures Driver Behavior That Affects Safety & Fuel
Efficiency; Also Offers New Reports Segmented by Driver Groups & Vehicle Types

PR Newswire

GLENVIEW, Ill., Feb. 11, 2013

GLENVIEW, Ill., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Navman Wireless USA today
announced the addition of a broad new Driver Behavior feature set to its
OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system, enabling fleet operators to identify drivers
who are compromising safety and fuel efficiency by their behavior behind the
wheel. The driver performance features are the most comprehensive and
configurable in the industry, with four new reports and two new dashboard KPIs
that quickly pinpoint trouble spots while also allowing drilldown to a
specific driver directly from the system's Dynamic Dashboard regardless of
fleet size.

Available immediately in the U.S., the latest OnlineAVL2 upgrade also
introduces new reports that allow managers to view fleet performance by both
driver groups and vehicle types. These two industry-first views expand the
information available to help fleet supervisors spot opportunities to reduce
costs and optimize operations.

Driver Scorecards

OnlineAVL2's new Driver Scorecards measure behaviors such as speeding, idling,
harsh braking, high RPMs or other integrated user-defined driving habits,
utilizing metrics gathered from Navman Wireless GPS tracking units installed
in a given fleet. If sensors that detect seatbelt use, emergency brake
deployment or other driver activities are connected to the system's GPS
tracking units, the Driver Scorecards can incorporate that information as
well. The resulting data is then available for at-a-glance examination with:

  oScorecard Summary, Detailed Scorecard Trip and Progressive Scorecard
    Reports that instantly identify drivers with below-average performance,
    show the impact of their behavior on fuel consumption, and permit
    drilldown to trip details when needed.
  oIndividual Driver Report Cards – including personal scores as well as
    comparison of drivers against fleet averages – that can be shared with the
    driver and used to modify unsatisfactory behaviors.
  oConfigurable Driver Score/Driver Average Score dashboard KPIs – including
    the ability to choose the drivers and time period represented as well as
    drilldown for details – to allow real-time monitoring of problem drivers
    and intervention for urgent problems like speeding and excessive idling.

Reporting by Driver Group

New Driver Groups support in OnlineAVL2 allows fleet managers to classify
their drivers by region, business unit, service type or any other category of
their choice, and then generate any Driver Scorecard report or driver-based
dashboard KPI by driver group. This enables managers to compare performance by
driver group and use that information to improve driver behavior in groups
that lag behind those with the top scores. 

Reporting by Vehicle Type

OnlineAVL2 users now also have the ability to view fleet performance data by
vehicle type to aid in usage and cost analysis. Construction companies can use
this new report to determine whether utilization of their skid steers aligns
with their budget for that asset type, for example; school bus companies can
compare utilization of their wheelchair-accessible and
non-wheelchair-accessible vehicles; and so on. 

Navman Wireless' OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking platform provides location,
operations and performance data for both on-highway vehicles and construction
heavy equipment from a single interface. Components include the back-end
OnlineAVL2 application, delivered under the Software-as-a-Service model with
no major in-house software installation or maintenance required; the Qube
on-highway and ruggedized Qtanium off-highway GPS tracking devices; and
in-vehicle M-Nav and MDT mobile messaging/turn-by-turn GPS navigation devices.
