San Francisco—Sept. 15, 2011—SpeedGuage, a provider of business intelligence and location-based analytics for the trucking and insurance industry, announced its expansion to Australia via a partnership with Procon Telematics, an affiliate of Procon, Inc., a mobile resource management (MRM) solutions provider.
The SpeedGauge platform will enable Procon Telematics’ customers to identify high-risk driving behavior, educate their drivers regarding safer driving techniques and save money.
The SpeedGauge platform is especially beneficial for Australian fleet owners and managers as it enables them to comply with the country’s growing number of “chain of responsibility” laws that hold fleet owners and managers liable for the actions and behavior of drivers.
This partnership will enable Procon Telematics customers to gather valuable insights about driver behavior that can be used to increase fuel efficiency, lower operating costs and operate safer fleets. According to Tim Bos, CEO of ProconMRM Pacific Pty Ltd, fleets will benefit from the posted speed alerts and reports, as speeding affects everything from occupational health and safety (OH&S), to vehicle running and maintenance costs.
“The SpeedGauge partnership is a key piece of our strategy to help Australian companies in the transport and commercial fleet sectors improve OH&S and compliance,” Bos said.
The SpeedGauge platform marries safety, risk, GPS analysis and coaching tools to enable smarter and safer driving. Deployment of SpeedGauge is seamless, does not require any additional equipment or installation fees and is often completed in less than 24 hours.
