The partnership sees them deploying the system across four (4) countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa as a pilot project. The humanitarian organisation was having difficulty on oversite and control of their vehicles. They were keen to implement a global solution which would give them the ability to require their employees to book vehicles online along with being able to monitor their location in real-time.
The MiX In-Vehicle-Monitoring-System (IVMS) provides extensive driver and vehicle management functionality through an on-board computer and online tracking portal. Complementing the IVMS, the online booking platform manages journey requests and automates the approval and driver allocation workflows.
Brodie von Berg, Head of Sales and Marketing at MiX Telematics Middle East & Australasia says, “It’s great that our combined efforts and innovative technologies have translated, not only in a safer driving environment, but also into increased efficiencies of a non-profit organisation; allowing them to utilise their funds where they are needed the most.”
The fully integrated solution allows staff to book a vehicle and nominate if they are self-driving, or if a driver is required. PoolCar manages the entire workflow, from initial request, management approvals and driver allocation using combined email and SMS notifications. Each journey is tracked in real-time via the MiX Telematics online portal; giving management extensive oversight into their fleet in order to maximize efficiencies and increase safety.
“We are truly delighted to partner with one of the world’s leading Telematics companies“, commented Kurt Lingohr, Managing Director of PoolCar. “The integration of our two leading platforms offers massive potential for fleet optimisation and back-office efficiencies. “
