Users can now add custom categories and attributes.

| September 12, 2012

SCOTTSDALE, Az. – GPS Insight, a provider of GPS tracking solutions for commercial and government fleets, has announced a new capability for all customers to apply their own custom categories and attributes to their fleets within the GPS fleet tracking software. This feature is the first of its kind in the GPS fleet tracking industry.

Customers are able to define and apply their highly specific business data to vehicles, equipment, drivers, landmarks, users and hierarchy nodes within GPS Insight.

An example of applying this capability could be a service company that defines specialized equipment assigned to the vehicle such as a generator, compressor, concrete saw, etc., as well as assigning training certifications to drivers who operate that equipment. This exclusive feature allows fleet managers to differentiate each vehicle, asset, driver, landmark, user, or hierarchy node in order to make the best business decisions.

Once GPS Insight customers apply custom categories and attributes to their vehicles or equipment, they will be able to see this data, and filter based upon them within the GPS Insight mapping, reports, and alerts. Eventually, custom data fields and values will also be applicable to trips and stops which will help customers to bill more effectively, determine tax on personal vehicle usage, and more.

Robert Donat, CEO of GPS Insight, said, “We have always paid attention to custom requirements from our users, and now, by allowing them to define their own highly custom categories and attributes and assign them to objects within GPS Insight, we are able to provide a perfectly tailored product for their specific needs.”
