PeopleNet will introduce management app for iPad, iPhone, Android devices

PeopleNet, a provider of innovative and integrated onboard computing and mobile communications systems for effective fleet management, announced the introduction of a management app that provides critical event alerts to smart devices within seconds based on data from multiple sources.
In announcing the new app to more than 850 attendees at the company’s 10th annual user conference at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, Randy Boles, PeopleNet vice-president of tailored solutions, explained that safety and maintenance managers in particular would appreciate the immediacy and detail of alerts. He said, “There is a tremendous amount of safety and maintenance-related information available through PeopleNet reports. However, we understand that there are events that require immediate attention rather than waiting to review reports. We are taking advantage of smart-device technology’s notification features to develop this safety app for helping customers avoid potential safety incidents and better protect drivers and the public.”
The PeopleNet system sends an alert to registered smart-device users. When an alert is received, the user can access all relevant event data through the alert. For instance, if there were a rollover-stability or sudden-deceleration event, a satellite map of the incident would be provided along with pre- and post-incident trails, all of the particulars of the incident, the identity of the driver, the driver’s available hours of service (HOS), and their past 24-hour HOS activity. The last five safety events for the driver are also displayed to help assess the emergence of a negative trend.
