MiX Telematics has launched app-based tracking for vehicles and drivers. With this solution, MiX Telematics extends its ability to help customers improve driver safety and manage the risks involved in managing diverse and dynamic fleets.
MyMiX Tracking leverages mobile phone technology to enable real-time tracking of drivers while also recording, measuring and enabling real-time self-correction of risky driving behavior events including speeding, harsh braking, harsh acceleration and mobile phone use while driving. The app-based solution is an extension of MyMiX, a comprehensive driver engagement app that also equips drivers with valuable information and alerts to improve their driving style, including immediate, in-cab audible feedback.
The solution is useful for customers running sub-contractor vehicles, leased vehicles, company cars, short-term rentals, or grey fleets, and is a cost-effective and impactful alternative to installing a hard-wired on-board computer or tracking device inside a vehicle. This enables fleet managers to achieve 100% visibility of all trips for unsafe or inefficient driving behaviors, creating opportunities to further improve safety and efficiency outcomes.
The app is available for download from the Apple App Store and the Google Play store and a soft launch is underway with existing customers in selected regions.
