Established in 2001, Telogis Fleet provides a full, end-to-end Field Service platform for fleet-based companies of all sizes. This powerful solution includes features such as job scheduling, status tracking, a rules engine, repair center management, and more.
The GPS-driven system uses spatial clustering to give a full picture of the locations of all vehicles in the field, allowing fleet managers to view thousands of vehicles in one picture, and then providing a way to zoom into a specific vehicle location. Telogis Fleet is a great option for managers that need to keep up with their workforce while traveling, and provides a carefully designed mobile option to provide all necessary features while out in the field.
Telogis Fleet also offers users real-time access to critical information about each vehicle; it also provides automated alerts to notify managers when members of their fleet violate the custom business rules. The system can keep track of maintenance needs, such as when a vehicle needs an oil change, and can also track any speed limit violations and monitor an individual vehicle’s idle time. Fleet managers can use this knowledge to curb bad habits, reduce idle times, and maximize their fleet’s efficiency.
With Telogis Fleet, managers also have the ability to view any existing weather patterns that may cause delays. This can be crucial for fleets that must be deployed in dangerous weather, such as hurricanes or snow storms. For companies searching for a fleet management system to help build efficiency and streamline workflow, Telogis Fleet is a competitive option to explore.

Just needed something basic to keep track of where our fleet was. Also great for mapping new routes and eliminating routes crossing each other.

Over the past 2 years, I have come to realize I don't like the product or vendor. It can track a vehicle sometimes and now their devices do not need to be wired in, that's the only positive thing I can say.
I've had nothing but issues with this software for the last 2 years. My automated/scheduled tracking reports do not come on time or sometimes, ever. Most importantly, the GPS trackers only work half the time. They drain truck batteries, if you let a truck sit for longer than a few days.
Here are Reasons why I've been told I have issues with my GPS trackers: they're not in good cell reception areas (when 1 isn't working, but 5 others are sitting next to it and working just fine); there's a battery issue (on a brand new truck); the technology is too new (on a high-end vehicle). I never get told what the issue is and all they can do is constantly replace tracking devices, which you have to pay for to send the old one back. So far, I've replaced my tracking devices at least a dozen times on 6 vehicles within the past year alone. Instead of making the company more productive, this has been one huge sink hole.
The customer service, my account manager, is the worst. I don't think she even knows how to come up with a good excuse anymore.
Do yourself a favor, don't buy their technology. Save yourself the headache.
Does it perform? Can it provide the reports you need? Can you easily reach management (not your account manager)? Are they rushing you to just sign a contract without consider what's best for your company?
