CAPE TOWN, Sth AFRICA – OTI PetroSmart, a wholly owned subsidiary of On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (OTIV), a global provider of near field communication (NFC), cashless payment and fuel management solutions, announced today that it has launched two new products, GOSTrack and GOSFleet, providing advanced vehicle location tracking and telematics solutions for its fuel management customers.
“The growth opportunity in the global fuel management market is significant, driven by new technologies. OTI’s proprietary suite of products creates unprecedented value for fleet and fuel management customers. Operating in 40 countries, OTI PetroSmart is very well positioned to serve this market and increase OTI’s recurring revenue streams,” stated OTI CEO Shlomi Cohen.
With the launch of the new products, OTI PetroSmart’s proven and globally deployed Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) based fuel management solution, EasyFuelPlus, is significantly enhanced, giving fleet operators real-time vehicle location, driver behaviour, powerful diagnostics and cloud-based reporting tools.
GOSTrack and GOSFleet share the same hardware platform and both solutions build upon OTI PetroSmart’s proven and hugely successful GPS Odometer Sender (GOS) functionality, which captures distance travelled data independently of the vehicle, resulting in highly accurate calibration-free fuel consumption monitoring. As part of the launch, OTI PetroSmart is also rebranding the existing GOS solution as GOSFuel.
GOSTrack delivers all the benefits of GOSFuel, plus real-time vehicle location tracking and driver behaviour monitoring, together with powerful enhanced reporting. Using a range of built-for-purpose peripherals, GOSFleet adds even more advanced vehicle and driver data capture, diagnostics and reporting functionality.
“For many years, our customers have been delighted with our best-in-class fuel management solutions, which provide the most secure way to refuel their vehicles, monitor and manage their fuel spend,” said Charlotte Hambly-Nuss, Managing Director of OTI PetroSmart. “Now, with the launch of GOSTrack and GOSFleet, they can not only secure their fuel, but can also access a range of functionality to help them manage their fleets of vehicles and drivers too.”
Completing the portfolio is FleetReporter, a powerful and flexible cloud-based portal, developed by OTI PetroSmart in partnership with Key Telematics. “By partnering with Key Telematics, we are leveraging Key’s decades of industry knowledge as global leaders in asset management software and extending our already comprehensive FuelReporter system to include powerful new fleet management and analytics functionality,” Mrs Hambly-Nuss added. “This ensures our customers benefit from the very best hardware and software technology currently available.”
Clive Killops, CEO of Key Telematics, commented, “We are delighted to partner with OTI PetroSmart and are excited to be part of providing best-in-class solutions to their broad customer base, including multinational oil companies and OTI PetroSmart’s global strategic partners. The relationship between Key Telematics and OTI PetroSmart has clear synergies, and we view this collaborative partnership as a fantastic opportunity to reach new markets and customers together.”
