By David Gitonga, TMCnet Contributing Writer
Imarda Inc., a company that provides a global fleet management solution and mobile GPS vehicle tracking software, has been selected as the New Zealand Police’s preferred GPS vehicle tracking provider.
The contract is estimated to cover more than 3,000 police vehicles.
Imarda was selected for its GPS vehicle tracking system after an extensive evaluation of 15 vendors. The robust selection process, conducted by the New Zealand Police, determined that Imarda had the most suitable Telematics solution for its requirements. During the selection process, each vendor’s specific performance criteria was taken into consideration, including scalability, integration capability into existing business systems, technology flexibility, future proofing, and the ability to provide future innovation and references from existing customers.
Said Selwyn Pellet, CEO at Imarda: “We are delighted to have been selected as the preferred supplier, and welcome the opportunity to work closely with the New Zealand Police should this project be approved.”
Pellet, formerly of Endace, has an extensive list of entrepreneurial successes both at home and abroad.
Imarda’s Telematics Software-as-a-Service technology platform, the i360 FMS, uses data collected from in-vehicle devices like the Imarda’s proprietary GPS tracking devices together with third-party devices like smartphones.
The i360 platform employs the ActionEngine to define and template business rules and actions without programming, making it a uniquely different product on the market.
The i360 platform is an active, fully configurable GPS fleet management suite that allows you to control what gets done, who does it and how it’s done, helping you spend less time micro-managing and more time embedding your way of doing things. The different devices that it supports, including the iPhone (News - Alert), allows i360 to be used across the entire fleet and staff and deliver the benefits of a fully scalable system to organizations.
