FleetBoss Global Positioning Solutions Inc. announced today that it has developed the first fleet management system to provide managers and company owners with active, real-time automatic vehicle location (AVL) and comprehensive “passive” vehicle data based on GPS satellite signals in one customer-defined solution package.

The Florida-based company said the system, which has not been named, is the first and only on the market to combine the immediacy of AVL instant vehicle information with the utility of permanently stored vehicle operational data.

FleetBoss also said it is offering entrepreneurs an opportunity to establish independent dealerships nationwide, focused on distribution, service and consulting on fleet management solutions. Dealers are given access to metropolitan and regional sales areas, with marketing, training and technical support offered at the national level.

“This is an exciting chance to get into a fast-growing industry without the barriers of entry one would expect in the GPS technology field,” said Larry Carroll, president and CEO of FleetBoss. “We're making it possible for technology-savvy individuals to take ownership of a valuable business-to-business opportunity.”
