Fleetmatics Group PLC announces the opening of a new office in Australia to provide fleet-based businesses in the country with a new choice in fleet management technology.
Fleetmatics is a leading global provider of fleet management solutions for commercial fleet vehicles delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS). Backed by nearly ten years of proven experience in providing workforce productivity solutions for commercial fleets, Fleetmatics offers businesses an unprecedented level of fleet control and productivity.
Its 20,000-plus customers are empowered to significantly increase mobile workforce and fleet productivity, safety and security, while decreasing costs related to fuel consumption, unauthorised use, payroll discrepancies and more. Currently installed in over 417,000 vehicles worldwide, Fleetmatics helps reduce operating and capital costs while boosting revenues for fleet-driven businesses in virtually any industry.
Fleetmatics CEO and Chairman of the Board Jim Travers commented that the Australian expansion was a natural move for the company on the heels of their August 2013 acquisition of Connect2Field, a Sydney-based provider of field service software.
Darren Linney, Chief Operating Officer, Formway Group Ltd, a Queensland-based metering company explained that they selected Fleetmatics after a review of several commercial fleet telematics solutions because of the unprecedented level of visibility and control it provided.
The timing of the Australia launch could not be more suitable for local fleet-based businesses, as the country is experiencing a steep rise in petrol prices.
Fleetmatics currently has locations in Ireland and the UK, as well as several offices throughout the US. In addition to the expansion in Australia, the company also announced its entry into the Netherlands.
