Ryder System has released its RydeSmart onboard telematics system as a mobile application. RydeSmart 3.0 is available for the iPhone and iPad devices.

According to Ryder, the application enables existing RydeSmart customers to track their vehicles and access real-time data on their fleets from their mobile devices at any location, any time of the day. Customers will be able to access detailed maps and check the movement and status of their fleets.

The new RydeSmart application is free and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store or www.rydesmart.com.

“In this business where fleets are constantly on the move, our customers need the tools to make decisions about rerouting vehicles or responding to emergencies at a moment’s notice,” said John Gleason, senior vice president of fleet management solutions (FMS) sales & marketing for Ryder. “With this new app, dispatchers and fleet managers no longer have to be tied to their office computers in order to view the status of their vehicles. Now, they can conveniently access real-time fleet data even when they are on the go through their iPhones or iPads.”

RydeSmart 3.0 is a full-featured GPS fleet location, tracking, and vehicle performance management system offered to Ryder’s customers. A compact hardware and software unit that is installed in the vehicle and connects to its existing computer and diagnostics systems, RydeSmart 3.0 communicates wirelessly via a dedicated and secure connection to a Web-based application that can be accessed by fleet, safety, and driver managers.
