MiXing it up at JIMS
MiX Telematics, a leading fleet management and mobile asset provider, launched its new all-in-one product offering, the Essential MiX, at this year’s Johannesburg International Motor Show.
“The offering is a specialised and cost-effective track, trace and recovery solution that caters for the needs of small and medium enterprises,” says Gert Pretorius, managing director of MiX Telematics.
MiX Telematics says that up to 62 percent of operating costs can be influenced by its fleet management solutions. It states that this is achieved through driver behaviour management and effective mobile resource management.
The Essential MiX comprises an on-board computer for the secure recording and transmission of vehicle data, as well as its online tracking and information portal which is designed with access to vehicle tracking in mind. It also features reporting and analysis tools as well as Beame, its wireless stolen vehicle recovery apparatus.
At its stand MiX Telematics encourages visitors to explore another of its products, MiX Vision, which was launched earlier this year. MiX Vision is a highly configurable video recording system that allows fleet managers to assess the circumstances during the time of a reported incident involving vehicles in their fleets.
“The Essential MiX represents a valuable and easy-to-use tool for this influential sector. It gives business owners direct control over their fleets, and they’ll be pleasantly surprised at how managing their fleets effectively will help to cut costs and boost profits,” says Pretorius.
“JIMS is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate our versatility, and this is reflected by the introduction of the Essential MiX, which successfully brings together our fleet and consumer technology with the aim of serving a specific sector,” he adds.
