Connected World magazine recognizes companies for fleet management advances in safety and productivity through Automatic Vehicle Management System (AVMS)
Aliso Viejo, Calif. — September 1, 2010:Telogis Inc., the platform for location intelligence, and Asplundh Tree Expert Co., a premium provider of line clearance services for utilities and related industries, won a silver award in the fleet management category at the 2010 M2M Value Chain Awards presented by Connected World magazine. The magazine presented Asplundh the award for its increased safety and productivity through an advanced solutions partnership with Telogis & AT&T.
The award was given for Asplundh's Automatic Vehicle Management System (AVMS), a GPS-monitored, Web-based solution that allows the company to monitor, plan and adjust the usage of mobile resources based on real-time data. The system has optimized deployment of mobile resources, reduced total miles driven, and improved the safety and performance of field personnel by monitoring key factors such as speed and idling.
“Asplundh has built a template for the successful and complete implementation of an enterprise-wide AVMS,” says Sean McCormick, product manager, Telogis Fleet. “This solution created operational efficiencies such as reduced fuel use and improved safety, while also improving critical areas such as mobile resource allocation during major storms and outages.”
The Value Chain Awards honor the most successful corporate adopters of M2M technology and the team of solution providers that made their success possible. The awards highlight the process of combining multiple technologies such as device-connectivity hardware, radio modules, network service and provision, as well as application software and infrastructure, and show how all of the elements of the M2M value chain created a winning solution for the end customer.
