Networkcar has begun implementing activity alerts, which allow fleets to be notified by email or SMS if specific vehicle events occur, such as excessive speed or extended idle time.

According to the company, fleet managers will have the ability to create, modify and remove alerts; associate alerts with either groups of vehicles or individual vehicles; select one or more recipients for each alert; and access a sortable report for all triggered alerts.

Activity alerts also allow fleet managers to create “escalation paths” of notifications, informing different people by different means as a vehicle exceeds accepted thresholds by a greater amount.

“Our new activity alerts capability helps fleet managers manage their operation more efficiently and further reduce operating costs, which is of critical importance in today's economy,” said Keith Schneider, president of Networkcar.
