CalAmp Unveils FleetOutlook 7.6

11/01/13

New Features and Functionality Include Engine Hours Monitoring, Analytics and Report Enhancements, and Fuel Card Integration

OXNARD, CA, Nov. 1, 2013 – CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, announced today the release of FleetOutlook® 7.6, the latest version of the company’s fleet tracking software suite. New features and functionality include engine hours monitoring, analytics and report enhancements, and fuel card integration with Comdata. These new offerings provide fleet managers with additional intelligence for monitoring the efficiency and productivity of their vehicle fleets and mobile assets.

Engine Hours Monitoring
FleetOutlook now has the ability to synchronize a motorized asset’s Hobbs Meter reading with the engine hours data field in FleetOutlook. This synchronization enables users of large construction equipment to schedule and record maintenance events based on engine hours, allowing asset owners to extend the life cycles of valuable equipment and lower operating costs.

Analytics and Report Enhancements
FleetOutlook’s Driver Performance Report now has a new detail view that lists day-by-day driver activities designed to improve efficiency. In addition, the Trip Report includes a new analytics view. This view provides users with an expanded list of fields including hierarchy, work scheduling, trip leg categorization and other fields helpful in analytics processing. FleetOutlook has also expanded its available analytics templates to include Driver Performance Analytics and Trip Analytics, arming users with additional tools to turn data into useful information for decision-making and collaboration.

Fuel Card Integration with Comdata
By integrating FleetOutlook with Comdata fuel cards, users can validate fuel purchases made with a driver’s fuel card by comparing the purchase information against FleetOutlook’s location-based data. FleetOutlook’s Fuel Purchase Report identifies potential fraud by highlighting fuel purchases in amounts that exceed a vehicle’s tank capacity and by highlighting instances where a reported fuel station and a vehicle location do not match. In addition, users can evaluate fuel consumption and compare expected mileage with actual mileage to pinpoint potential misuse, deter aggressive driving or proactively address vehicle maintenance issues.

“The release of FleetOutlook 7.6 is centered around delivering even more value to our customers,” said Brian Moran, CalAmp’s vice president of product management. “Customers need more than just rows and columns of data. They need actionable intelligence to help them measure and monitor the efficiency of their operations, from fuel data to engine hours. This tool set is a direct response to what our FleetOutlook community requested.”

These features, along with many others, can be found within the FleetOutlook application. Customers can download a complete copy of the FleetOutlook 7.6 Release Notes by logging into FleetOutlook and clicking on the Help tab.
