The new driver friendly Ctrack On-the-Road offering is intended to assist fleet operators improve productivity and operational efficiencies.

Ctrack®, well known player in the vehicle monitoring and fleet management technology arena, has unveiled a new product to assist fleet operators improve productivity and operational efficiencies.

The product is called Ctrack On-the-Road® (OTR) and is based on Android. It uses a full colour touch screen to enhance the driver experience.

This complete onboard messaging and navigation system is said to assists fleet operators in saving time and money through advanced navigation, optimal routing, voice functionality, task management, messaging and driver behavior attributes.

The product offers task management which is integrated with navigation functions to assist fleet managers with route planning and assignment of tasks for the day. By optimising drivers’ routes, OTR helps lessen distances travelled thereby cutting fuel and maintenance costs.

With real time traffic information, drivers are routed around roads with congested traffic. And in the event of an accident, a built-in front-view video camera can record or take snapshots of the accident to help determine what might have gone wrong.

For heavy or special sized commercial vehicles, the onboard route navigation can be set to include the truck’s weight and size constraints for its route planning and navigation.

The OTR communication system integrates seamlessly into a fleet and is easily configured into cars, vans, trucks and heavy duty vehicles, providing an all-in-one vehicle tracking and fleet communications solutions.

The terminal includes voice communication and allows voice calls to predefined numbers or instant messaging which can only be accessed by the driver if the van or truck is stationary, promoting safety, better driving and efficiency.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced or optimized driving distance
  • Reduced fleet cost and fuel usage
  • Improved productivity
  • Increased customer service by faster task completion, deliveries and turnaround times
  • Increased safety and better driving habits
  • Cost saving features by means of lower vehicle maintenance and services expenses

“Ctrack is continuously identifying and redefining innovative applications and future telematics trends. The concept of total fleet management is gathering momentum offering deeper fleet analysis and a productive measure to improve operational efficiencies,” says Nick Vlok, CEO of DigiCore, supplier of Ctrack.
