CalAmp Introduces Two New Mobile Apps to Streamline Fleet Operations


MobileInstall and MobileView now available for FleetOutlook customers  to streamline device installation, better manage vehicles in the field and  assign work orders on the fly


OXNARD, CA, June 3,  2015 -- CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products,  services and solutions, today announced the release of two new mobile  applications for FleetOutlook™, its fleet and asset tracking solution. MobileInstall™  and MobileView™ are available for iOS and Android devices and provide driver  supervisors and fleet managers with critical fleet management functionality  while reducing the cost and complexity of onboarding vehicles onto  FleetOutlook. The new apps are part of a broader set of CalAmp mobile  applications that streamline fleet operations including MobileNav™ for driver  communication and turn-by-turn directions.

MobileInstall simplifies device installation for asset  tracking and fleet management applications, automates installation and significantly  minimizes data entry errors by securely capturing all required vehicle  information at the time of the device installation.  During installation, it uses the mobile  device’s camera to capture vehicle and tracking device information, which it  then pairs and populates into FleetOutlook. Collected data includes the VIN,  year, make, model, license plate number, odometer reading and other parameters.  MobileInstall also provides installation integrity testing, which allows the  installer to validate that all wiring is done properly and that adequate GPS  satellite reception is available, greatly reducing the chance of communication problems  in the field.


MobileView provides field supervisors with access to  critical information about their fleet including real-time location of selected  vehicles providing a big-picture view of their group and travel status. Its ‘Breadcrumb  Detail’ screen enables fleet managers to review and verify driver activity by  providing instant access to a detailed account of a selected vehicle’s location  history. This helps identify situations such as late starts, early quitting and  congregation of drivers, as well as long or unauthorized stops. MobileView also  features ‘Nearest Vehicle Search’, which allows in-the-field supervisors to  quickly determine the nearest vehicle to a specified location to facilitate  efficient on-the-fly work order assignments. It includes a Go-To-Vehicle function  that provides the app user with turn-by-turn directions while driving to meet a  selected driver.


“Driver supervisors, dispatchers and fleet managers don’t  always have access to a computer for the complete FleetOutlook application. The  addition of these two new mobile apps enables key features of CalAmp’s  FleetOutlook on a mobile device, with an intuitive user interface to make it  easy to monitor fleet activity while away from a computer,” said Michael  Zachan, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CalAmp’s Wireless  Networks. “The entire suite of mobile apps is designed to increase efficiency,  improve installation accuracy, provide a better customer experience and help  our customers achieve the fastest possible ROI from their FleetOutlook  deployments.”


The Android version of MobileInstall is available from the  CalAmp AppstoreSM and Google Play and the MobileView Android version  is due out mid-summer 2015. MobileInstall and MobileView for iOS are currently available  for download from the Apple® App StoreSM.
