DALLAS — Tyler Technologies Inc. has released Tyler Telematic GPS, a system that uses GPS technology integrated with Tyler’s school solutions to provide insight into transportation data.

“This technology represents the most significant innovation in the school transportation industry since the advent of automated routing,” said John Fahey, a Tyler’s Versatrans consultant and former assistant superintendent for Buffalo (N.Y.) Public Schools. “Transportation managers can rely on Tyler Telematic GPS to provide significant cost savings by allowing real-time monitoring of vehicle information and driver behavior. This product really taps into the return on investment GPS technology provides when used to its fullest capabilities.”

Information collected from onboard diagnostic monitoring can include engine faults, low battery voltage, engine idling, oil pressure, harsh braking, and other warnings and alerts.

Tyler Telematic GPS will initially be offered to clients in the K-12 school market through Tyler's Versatrans solution.

The product leverages Tyler’s Versatrans Onscreen and Powercheck software with GPS hardware through Geotab. Tyler’s Versatrans Onscreen is real-time GPS fleet tracking and management software, while Powercheck creates driver and vehicle profiles, and engine diagnostic reports.

“Combining Tyler's Versatrans solution with our telematics technology creates a solution that gives customers the tools and data they need to improve efficiencies, reduce waste and build service levels, making very real improvements to business,” Geotab CEO Neil Cawse said.
