Networkfleet tracking software review

Networkfleet is a full service GPS tracking company that offers fleet management services to businesses of all sizes. Networkfleet was recently acquired my Verizon, which means all of their devices are now running on the nation’s largest and most reliable cellular network. This is not the first major telematics related acquisition Verizon has taken part of in the past and should lead to increased service and reliability across all of their holdings.

Networkfleet specializes in tracking large and government fleets at the base of it’s business, but can also be used by individuals as well. They have a full suite of add-on services to tailor the program to meet the end user’s needs. There is no white-label service available for their software, which means those looking to start a GPS tracking business and private label their software will have to look elsewhere.

Networkfleet software features

As far as the actual software goes, Networkfleet’s system can be a bit hard to navigate at times and requires the navigation of complex sub-menus to get more detailed information about fleet use. This can be somewhat time consuming to access and may require that users/employees spend additional time learning how to use the platform. On the plus side, the reports on fuel and vehicle usage generated by Networkfleet’s software are extremely well put together and easy to decipher. However, the ease-of-use factor is definitely a concern when comparing their cloud based platform to companies such as GPSWOX and Navixy which are much less complex to navigate.

Fleetmatics tracking software review

It’s incredibly important to do your research when looking at a GPS fleet tracking provider to ensure that you are getting the highest quality service and functionality for what you pay. Today I’ll be reviewing the Fleetmatics platform, hardware and options available to customers. My hope is that this will provide some insight as to whether Fleetmatics is the best choice for your fleet vehicle tracking needs.

Fleetmatics is a full-service GPS tracking provider that is focused entirely on fleet vehicles, ensuring operational efficiency as well as compliance with current mandates for transportation companies. They offer several levels of service, which I’ll also get into later in this review. Another thing worth nothing, is that Verizon has recently acquired Fleetmatics and added it to it’s growing portfolio of telematics investments. In my opinion, this will only help ensure the reliability and quality of service that Fleetmatics provides by using the Verizon network exclusively.

Fleetmatics software options

When it comes to using the Fleetmatics software there are a couple of different plans you can choose. The first is Fleetmatics Now, this is basically a lite version of their software for those who just need to know the current and historical location information of their vehicles. The second is Fleetmatics Reveal, which offers more advanced features such as custom alerting, geo-fencing, driver ID and more. This allows small businesses to get exactly what they need out of a fleet tracking system without paying for features they don’t need.
