SALT LAKE CITY, UT - inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global telematics company centered on fleet management and driver safety solutions, was recognized by telematics industry association, Telematics Update, as a finalist for the 'Best Aftermarket Device or Solution' award. inthinc was selected as a finalist by an independent panel of telematics industry experts who evaluated telematics solutions from around the world.

As the only finalist offering both GPS tracking and in-cab verbal mentoring for drivers, inthinc is differentiated in its approach to fleet management and driver safety by focusing on accident prevention. The in-cab verbal coaching provided by inthinc solutions warns a driver of speeding, an unfastened seatbelt, or aggressive driving and gives them a chance to correct their behavior before flagging a violation in the system. This approach actually changes driver behavior as opposed to simply punishing mistakes.

inthinc currently offers two solutions for commercial fleets:

inthinc waySmart: a ruggedized solution aimed toward heavy industrial fleets operating in remote areas and high-impact environments (Oil & Gas, Mining, Construction, etc.). waySmart offers technology developed to meet standards required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), including an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) for automatic hours-of-service (HOS) tracking, inspection alerts, global satellite communications connectivity, and in-cab driver mentoring.

inthinc tiwiPro: a device for commercial fleets of any size, and the only product on the market that focuses on changing driver behavior through real-time, in-cab verbal alerts for speeding, seatbelt use, aggressive driving and other notifications. GPS tracking, emergency hands-free communication and geo-fencing are included.

inthinc solutions send real-time vehicle and driver performance data wirelessly to the web-based inthinc Portal. Through the portal, fleet managers monitor vehicle location, driver trends, driver scoring, hours-of-service (HOS) information and more from one interface.

Final award winners will be announced at a Telematics Update Awards ceremony on June 7th in Novi, MI.
