Hubio launches integrated 3G camera and tracking unit
Hubio Fleet has launched an integrated 3G camera and telematics tracking solution aimed at providing car, van and truck fleets with quick access to high-quality footage.
The 3G camera is claimed to be one of the world’s most accurate, with images automatically uploaded via the Cloud to Hubio’s Fleet Manager platform over a private 3G network, speeding up the First Notification of Loss (FNOL) process compared to using an SD card based solution. The unit also provides a panic button for drivers to activate footage.
The solution also includes tracking technology, which enables fleet managers to locate where drivers are using the Fleet Manager platform map and also set up geo-fencing.
The launch of the solution coincides with a complete upgrade of Hubio’s Fleet Manager platform, which brings increased functionality including driver coaching tools to help address persistent offenders and a mobile app that enables fleet managers to keep an eye on vehicles while they are away from the office.
“Our 3G unit has been developed to provide a powerful range of tracking services with video imagery to the fleet manager while being quick and easy to install,” said Russell Olive, Hubio Fleet’s general manager.
“With the majority of larger fleets being self-insured the camera plays a vital role in providing filmed assets to support the First Notification of Loss. The assets help support and speed up taking control of the vehicle recovery and repair which is vital in helping keep incident management costs down. Video footage can also support fleets if a claim reaches court,” he added.
