Ryder System Inc. has released a mobile app of its on-board telematics system, RydeSmart 3.0, for the iPhone and iPad, enabling RydeSmart customers to track their vehicles and access real-time data on their fleets from their mobile devices.
The app, which is free and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store or rydesmart.com, lets users pinpoint where a vehicle or group of vehicles is located, as well as their direction and speed. It also provides detailed map views and key vehicle data, such as fuel consumption, idle time and hard-braking events.
‘With this new app, dispatchers and fleet managers no longer have to be tied to their office computers in order to view the status of their vehicles,’ says John Gleason, senior vice president of Fleet Management Solutions sales and marketing for Ryder. ‘Now, they can conveniently access real-time fleet data, even when they are on the go, through their iPhones or iPads.’
Ryder notes that more than 22,000 units of RydeSmart are currently installed in its lease fleet.
