CalAmp, a technology solutions provider transforming the mobile connected economy, announced the CalAmp iOn™ Suite of telematics services including CrashBoxx crash response, driver behavior scoring and asset tag management. Purpose-built for service, construction and government fleet markets, the CalAmp iOn Suite of Telematics Services will help protect and manage mobile workers, vehicles, mobile assets, tools and cargo. The iOn Suite is available today as a web-based, fleet and asset management application through an all-inclusive monthly Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription service.

The suite bundles CrashBoxx™, Driver Behavior Scorecard, and iOn™ Tag Telematics Services to extend the fleet management service value proposition and increase return on investment for fleet operators. Within the CalAmp iOn Suite, telematics devices are now tightly integrated with the iOn tag services, facilitating instant notification when an iOn Tag-enabled asset loses its paired connection with an associated vehicle. Fleet operators can now create a reliable and sustainable business environment with greater visibility into the management of their drivers, vehicles, peripheral assets, tools and cargo. This visibility can save fleet operators considerable time, resources and money by preventing lost or stolen tools or other valuable assets.

The CalAmp iOn Suite of Telematics Services includes:

  • CrashBoxx – provides alerts in real-time when a driver is involved in a collision; reconstructs the collision with accurate situational details to facilitate investigations and claims processing, thus helping to mitigate frivolous lawsuits or fraud
  • Driver Behavior Scorecard – produces a comprehensive driver scoring report card based on patented algorithms; designed to identify the need for training and help minimize vehicle wear and tear; provides detailed incident reports on speeding, harsh braking, hard cornering and other risky driving behaviors, while also improving road safety
  • iOn Tags – monitor and protect valuable assets like tools, diagnostic test equipment and other service equipment; ensures assets are not left behind and the right equipment is in the right vehicle, yard or storage area, thus improving service and operational efficiency; if a tool or cargo is misplaced, the system will note the last known location to assist in quick recovery
