In addition to monitoring vehicles’ locations, the Networkfleet 4200 GPS fleet tracking system features a simple Web-based management system and its user interface provides access to detailed vehicle performance data.

SAN DIEGO — Networkfleet Inc. has been selected by Palm Springs (Calif.) Unified School District (USD) to improve the district’s vehicle utilization, reduce fuel costs and increase safety with its Networkfleet 4200 GPS fleet tracking system.

Palm Springs USD outfitted its fleet of 100 district vehicles, including maintenance and operations, delivery, school vans and security vehicles, with the system. 

The school district reportedly selected Networkfleet 4200 because it provides reliable GPS location tracking, includes a simple Web-based management system and is backed by a full service and support network. Moreover, the system’s streamlined user interface provides access to detailed vehicle performance data.

“We needed to manage our fleet more effectively and reduce operating costs. At the same time, we wanted to improve driver safety and increase our response times. This made better fleet utilization an imperative,” said Jim Novak, assistant superintendent of business services for Palm Springs USD. “By using Networkfleet to observe routing in real time as well as perform post-route analysis, we can significantly reduce the total miles driven and lower fuel usage. We were also impressed with Networkfleet’s work in the public sector and its intuitive, comprehensive online management system.”

Networkfleet was founded in 1999 and is a subsidiary of Hughes Telematics Inc.
