SEATTLE — Fleet telematics provider Zonar has officially been added to the Esri Partner Network as a Silver Tier Partner.
Earlier this year, Zonar announced a new integration with geographic information system (GIS) provider Esri that delivers real-time fleet data layered with sophisticated geographic map information.
Company officials said that the new Silver Tier partnership expands the relationship between Zonar and Esri for further co-development and provides this technology to all Zonar and Esri customers.
The new integration helps organizations and municipalities determine capacity enhancements, improve fuel efficiency, optimize routes and share interactive transportation maps on the web.
Current adopters of the technology use the integration to:
• Determine fuel efficiency rates of specific routes with elevation information in addition to longitude, latitude, speed, odometer and fuel usage data.
• Track vehicle location and diagnostic data in real-time on a map containing customer facility and asset locations, preferred fuel stops, maintenance and service locations, or customer delivery points.
• Provide advanced operational awareness via the integration of real-time vehicle locations with traffic, weather, work orders and any customer-maintained GIS data.
• Publish web-based maps displaying real-time locations or recent activity of snowplows and whether the vehicle is actively plowing, de-icing or spreading salt.
