SAN JOSE, CA, DECEMBR 16, 2015
Azuga™, the award-winning connected vehicle technology provider, today announced that Convergint Technologies, a service-based global integrator of electronic security, fire alarm and life safety, healthcare technologies, communications and building automation solutions, has implemented Azuga Fleet™ to improve safety and efficiency in many of its fleet vehicles. Convergint’s fleet joins more than1,000 fleets worldwide that benefit from Azuga’s end-to-end connected vehicle services, which include plug-and-play GPS functionality, advanced fuel utilization tracking, engine diagnostics and reward-based social telematics.
“We selected Azuga for its comprehensive functionality, rewards-driven approach to telematics and high-precision fuel usage tracking,” said Bryan Payne, operations manager at Convergint. “Our company focuses on quality of service, and Azuga has allowed us to improve our customer service through actionable data. In addition, its social telematics feature allows us to further motivate and incentivize employees, which has resulted in safer driving habits, increased efficiency and positive results to the bottom line.”
Azuga Fleet’s social telematics application scores driver performance on a 100-point scale based on performance in risk-based events, taking into account factors such as weather, terrain and other driving conditions in assigning the proper weight to each event. Moreover, Azuga Fleet’s gamification features enable drivers to compete against one another for rewards. Azuga Fleet also offers an opt-in program that rewards fleet drivers across the United States for safe driving behaviors.
“Next-generation connected vehicle solutions are disrupting the fleet telematics market with breakthrough functionality, dramatically lower costs and no-contract agreements,” said Ananth Rani, co-founder and president of Azuga. “Our social telematics solution also enables our customers to use positive reinforcement and gamification to improve driver performance—we turn ‘gotcha’ into ‘great job.’ Azuga is a great fit for Convergint’s corporate culture.”
With Azuga Fleet, managers can locate a vehicle at any time, and immediately provide customers with proof-of-visit. Furthermore, Azuga’s instant-install hardware communicates directly with an online tracking platform that helps choose the best and safest routes, saving time, decreasing risky driving, avoiding high fuel costs and reducing excessive mileage. This powerful combination of services is available at a fraction of the cost of traditional, hard-installed “black box” systems.
