Earthwave Technologies has released the newest version of Fleetwatcher, a unique and advanced telematics solution geared to the construction industry. Fleetwatcher 3.4, which comes on the heels of the release of Fleetwatcher 3.2 in January, provides customers with additional features, reports and alerts, while also enhancing some of the existing functionality of the product.
Some of the added features include a new manual entry of hour meter, a low battery alert, an ignition on alert and an enhanced idle alert. Customers will also be able to access new and enhanced reports, including a new alert report and idle summary report.
Fleetwatcher uses a device contractors attach to their vehicles that collects and transmits usage data through a GSM wireless data network to Earthwave’s Internet-based application. The Fleetwatcher application provides the contractor with an easy-to-use, online software reporting interface that allows them to view and manage all of the data collected from their equipment. Earthwave Technologies’ proprietary hardware and software collects data on location/tracking, frequency of equipment use, amount of time spent working, amount of time spent idling and engine starts. Contractors use the information to determine job progress, labor hours accounting, equipment productivity, preventative maintenance needs and misappropriation of machinery.
