Real Time Vehicle Alerts
Verizon Networkfleet’s® sophisticated alerting functionality allows managers to schedule real-time alerts daily, weekly, or monthly for conditions that exceed user-defined limits such as: speed thresholds, geofence violations, odd-hours breaches and more. Users can create and modify alerts for groups or individual vehicles and have notifications sent automatically via email or SMS message.

Activity alerts report on the following types of activities:

  • Vehicle Engine Health: Diagnostics trouble codes and malfunction indicator light status.
  • Vehicle Maintenance: If the vehicle is due for service.
  • Odd Hours: If vehicles are being used outside user-defined parameters based on time.
  • Idle: If vehicles are idling longer than a user defined threshold.
  • Speed: If vehicles are speeding.
  • Geofences: If a vehicle has entered or exited a geofence.

In addition to these alerts, fleet managers can also create a path of escalation to notify management as the severity of alert conditions increase.

This information will allow fleet maintenance managers to be proactive and resolve any conditions before they can damage the vehicle or result in excessive fleet fuel consumption. To learn more, visit:
