CalAmp recently introduced the CalAmp iO Suite of Telematics Services, which includes CrashBoxx crash response, driver-behavior scoring and asset-tag management.
Purpose-built for service, construction and government fleets, the CalAmp iOn Suite of Telematics Services will help protect and manage mobile workers, vehicles, mobile assets, tools and cargo, according to the company. The iOn Suite is available today as a web-based application through an all-inclusive monthly software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription.
Within the CalAmp iOn suite, telematics devices are tightly integrated with the iOn tag services, facilitating instant notification when an iOn Tag-enabled asset loses its paired connection with an associated vehicle. Fleet operators now can create a reliable and sustainable business environment with greater visibility into the management of their drivers, vehicles, peripheral assets, tools and cargo, according to CalAmp.
“This visibility can save fleet operators considerable time, resources and money by preventing lost or stolen tools or other valuable assets,” the company said in a news release.
The CalAmp iOn Suite of Telematics Services includes:
- CrashBoxx – Provides real-time alerts when a driver is involved in a collision, and reconstructs the collision with accurate situational details to facilitate investigations and claims processing, thus helping to mitigate frivolous lawsuits or fraud.
- Driver Behavior Scorecard – Produces a comprehensive driver scoring report card based on patented algorithms. Designed to identify the need for training and help minimize vehicle wear and tear, the scorecard provides detailed incident reports on speeding, harsh braking, hard cornering and other risky driving behaviors, while also improving road safety.
- iOn Tags – Monitor and protect valuable assets such as tools, diagnostic test equipment and other service equipment. The tags ensure assets are not left behind and the right equipment is in the right vehicle, yard or storage area, improving service and operational efficiency. If a tool or cargo is misplaced, the system will note the last known location to assist in quick recovery.
“Our iOn Suite of Telematics Services is the only telematics bundle of services that empowers fleet operators of all sizes to protect and more efficiently manage their fleets, drivers and assets through one easy-to-use SaaS-based subscription model,” said Anand Rau, senior vice president of engineering for CalAmp. “By bundling the iOn Suite with our devices, CalAmp Telematics Cloud platform and applications, we enable businesses to more effectively manage all their mobile assets to drive better business outcomes.”
The iOn Suite of Telematics Services is an all-inclusive monthly SaaS subscription service that includes a hardware warranty for the life of the agreement, replacement spare units, unlimited users, unlimited online training, cellular overage protection, installation project management, service guarantees and a dedicated customer success manager who will be the single point of contact for all post-sale support.
