INDIANAPOLIS — Synovia Solutions and Safety Vision are partnering to create user-friendly and intuitive compatibility between Synovia's fleet management solution and Safety Vision's Observer digital video recorders.
The partnership will increase safety and service as well as savings for fleet managers in various industries, including school transportation, according to the suppliers.
"This is a win-win for both of us as well as all of our customers," said Randy Wise, vice president of sales for Safety Vision. "Synovia users will now be able to take advantage of the camera views and video recording provided by the Observer series, and our Observer users have a great new option for fleet management. The benefits that Synovia and Safety Vision provide are extremely complementary."
One of the innovations with the new combined solution is designed to help avoid collisions: rear-facing cameras can be displayed automatically on the Synovia tablet when the vehicle is placed in reverse. Additionally, Synovia's software will provide the health status of the Observer system, complementing the maintenance notifications that alert fleet managers to potential problems.
Synovia Solutions offers a variety of fleet management solutions, including GPS tracking, engine diagnostics, the Comparative Analysis route planning system, and the Here Comes the Bus application for K-12 parents. Safety Vision's analog Observer series utilizes solid-state storage media and threaded mobile-rated connectors to record up to four camera channels. Compatibility between the two products is facilitated by a new connector on Synovia's tablet.
"Customers will get significant benefits from our integration with Safety Vision's technology, including improved safety features for both the vehicle and pedestrians," said Jon King, president of Synovia Solutions. "In addition to an enhanced user experience, we have also created a number of programs to make it easy for customers to acquire our combined solutions."
