Navman Wireless has entered a GPS fleet management deal with Telstra offering customers a monthly repayment option.

This is the first time Telstra has offered fleet management technology to customers under a repayment plan.

Under the terms of the partnership, Telstra will offer the Navman Wireless tracking, messaging and navigation solution to its business customers on 36 month contracts, rather than paying for the products up front.

Navman Wireless Asia Pacific Vice President Ian Daniel says the partnership brings together Australia’s leading telecommunications and fleet management companies.

"We have seen an explosion in local demand for fleet management solutions and are excited about working with Telstra to make our products easily available to more Australian businesses," says Daniel.

Telstra’s M2M and Partners Director Mike Cihra says the telco has had great success with Navman Wireless’ fleet tracking solution.

He says the offer provides customers with the added flexibility of receiving a turnkey vehicle tracking solution inclusive of hardware, software as a service and carriage – with a single monthly payment on the Telstra bill.

"Telstra have been partnered with Navman Wireless because of their market leadership position and strong dealer channel relationships," Cihra says.

"We are looking to partner with more organisations like Navman Wireless who have innovative yet easy to use technology as well as a shared focus on growing the machine to machine market in Australia."

Navman Wireless technology is based on a small tracking device in the vehicle transmitting data through the Telstra network, showing business owners and fleet managers their vehicles’ location, time spent at a location, speed, idle times, driver time sheets, unauthorised vehicle usage, and vehicle maintenance status.

An optional navigation and messaging device provides communication between office and field staff, improving route planning and reducing fuel costs.

Navman Wireless has seen its customer base double year-on-year since 2007 as businesses utilise these solutions to boost productivity and reduce operational costs.

The business benefits have seen tracking expand beyond the traditional transport sector, with the service industry now the fastest growth segment.

The partnership with Telstra enables Navman Wireless to extend its market reach and make its products easily available to a wider customer base.
