TMCnet - Custom Attributes Added by inthinc to smartZones Geo-Fencing Technology

12/09/2011 - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc. is a global telematics company that is focused on fleet management and driver safety solutions. The company recently announced that it has released a new version of smartZones, which is an enhanced GPS-based technology that enables fleet managers to draw boundaries around customized regions for easier fleet administration and safety monitoring.

In a release, Corey Catten, CTO, inthinc Technology Solutions, said, "Accidents occur when there is a lack of safety controls. Our smartZones technology empowers fleet managers with the tools they need to protect their drivers in all environments and situations."

One of the special features of the inthinc solution is that it allows fleet managers to assign specific attributes within a created zone that map to their companies' safety policies, such as speed limits, seat belt use and aggressive driving.

Apart from smartZones, the inthinc solution also offers fleet managers regional and individual driver scorecards, in-cab verbal coaching, electronic hours-of-service logs, GPS and trips reporting and a lot more. All of this can be managed and monitored from the web-based management portal.
