Vericom's web-based MRM solution has embedded deCarta's Drill Down Server® technology, providing customers with robust map rendering capabilities for more efficient tracking, routing, and management of remote vehicles, employees and assets. In addition to Vericom's strong reporting capabilities, new and enhanced features allow improved usability and increased customer efficiency, including:
-- Rich Internet Mapping and Tracking: Employing deCarta's high-performance geospatial software platform originally leveraged by Google and Yahoo Maps for their mapping capability, Vericom's maps are now second to none in the industry. All maps have the flexibility and visual layout users have come to expect from a tier-one mapping application. More visually intuitive and robust maps provide fleet managers and administrators with easily accessible information in a simple to use format, increasing productivity. -- Directions and Routing: Vericom's new maps allow users to find the most efficient driving route, total distance, and total time between landmarked customer locations and vehicles/employees in the field. Enhanced routing decreases vehicles' time and distance traveled, reducing gas costs, increasing the life of vehicles and improving the CO2 footprint.
"Higher productivity and fuel cost-reduction initiatives are driving enterprise demand for more precise mobile resource management tools," said J. Kim Fennell, president and CEO of deCarta. "We're proud to be working closely with Vericom Technologies and providing the technology to further enhance the utility and efficiency of mapping for their customers."
"Vericom Technologies is excited to partner with deCarta, the leading map rendering company in this space. Their technology provides the rich feature set, innovation and scale that our customers require," stated Jeff Pierson, Director of Product Management of Vericom Technologies. "This partnership is a key milestone on our strategic roadmap and new VeriVision MRM offering, and shows our commitment to providing an easy-to-use, end-to-end, yet modular, platform that allows enterprise and SMB customers to more efficiently manage their remote resources, employees and work in the field."
