According to the company, Networkfleet uses an in-vehicle device to collect and organize detailed automotive information directly from a vehicle's engine computer and location-based information from a global positioning system (GPS) device. Information is transmitted wirelessly to an information center where it is made available to fleet managers in the form of immediate e-mail alerts, summary e-mail reports or easy-to-read Web pages. Networkfleet is compatible with virtually all light and medium-duty vehicles manufactured since 1996. Diagnostic and location data can be easily integrated with existing fleet management applications.
