ECONET LAUNCHES CONNECTED CAR

Econet has launched yet another revolutionary product branded Econet ConnectedCar Fleet Management Service (FMS). This is a world class vehicle real time tracking and monitoring system which monitors and relays vehicle data to owner or fleet manager on the geographic location and status of their vehicles.

ConnectedCar FMS is purely a Lesotho service meant to make Basotho’s lives easier, by giving them peace of mind in the knowledge that their vehicles are tracked by a reliable service provider. This service allows individuals to track their vehicle and corporates, organisations and taxi owners to effectively manage and better optimise their fleet to help them to reduce their fleet costs significantly.

This is a user friendly product that makes it possible to track the movement of vehicles and monitor driver behaviour, while receiving safety alerts and customised fleet management reports among other services. The reports can be viewed on a Web portal or on a mobile phone.

 

Individuals can benefit from this service as they will be able to monitor their driving behaviour, including speed, as well as to track their vehicles at all times; whether in their possession or stolen. The information from this tracking device can be used to assist the relevant parties to recover the vehicle.

Any organization with more than two vehicles will benefit from putting a tracking device in their fleet. Some of the immediate benefits include better fuel management by ensuring that vehicles stay on prescribed routes; better staff management through notifications when a vehicle enters or exits specified virtual boundaries (popularly referred to as geo fences) and the ability to view and rectify bad driving behaviour. Fleet managers will use technology that gives them the capability to "see that the driver is delivering goods to the right place, is driving in accordance to rules expected, not speeding, and not abusing company vehicles by harsh braking or harsh acceleration".

 

This product is very affordable as individuals can pay as little as M150 for a monthly subscription to have their vehicle tracked with ConnectedCar while corporates will pay M200 monthly subscription per vehicle. Interested parties can conveniently apply for the product at any Econet Telecom Lesotho retail shop or Econet shop nationwide. There is a once-off installation fee payable per vehicle. The monthly subscription can also be paid effortlessly with EcoCash.
