“The data provided by our telematics solution enables this service provider to optimise the utilisation of its fleet, manage drivers, reduce costs, and increase productivity,” says Gert Pretorius, managing director of MiX Telematics Africa. “The benefits derived from effective mobile asset management are tangible, and provide improvements which are sustainable.

“Our premium fleet solution provides real-time insight, allowing the fleet manager to make informed decisions with the aim of improving productivity and reducing operational expenses. This online platform processes data from multiple assets, creating customisable reports, graphs and dashboards that provide actionable intelligence.”
