SAN DIEGO — Networkcar, a Hughes Telematics subsidiary that provides wireless fleet management, is changing its name to Networkfleet.
The name change and corresponding new brand image are intended to reflect the company’s sole focus on helping commercial and government fleets to increase operating efficiency and reduce costs.
The company has also moved to a larger, newly renovated building in San Diego to expand its headquarters. This new building nearly doubles the company’s office space to accommodate current and future growth.
While GPS-based vehicle tracking systems are becoming common with many small competitors entering the market, Networkfleet combines precise GPS vehicle location with engine diagnostics and real-time reporting for a comprehensive approach. Fleet managers receive alerts and log on to a secure Web site to manage vehicle information. Networkfleet also helps fleets by continuously monitoring emissions, giving them the ability to reduce fuel usage, lower idle time, reduce vehicle speed and lower miles traveled. In California, Networkfleet customers are wirelessly “smog checked” to immediately identify vehicles that are out-of-compliance.
Networkfleet customers represent a broad range of industries and fleet sizes, from less than 10 vehicles to thousands of vehicles. Customers include service fleets, delivery, transportation services, construction and all levels of government.
