Alaska Communications Launches Fleet Management Services

ANCHORAGE, Alaska--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alaska businesses now have a way to improve safety and operational efficiencies, reduce costs and environmental impact and grow their business thanks to a new fleet management solution from Alaska Communications.

Alaska Communications Fleet Management provides any business or organization that operates in Alaska the ability to track, monitor and control fleet assets, allowing businesses to streamline productivity and increase the bottom line. The solution operates on the Alaska Communications wireless network, which covers 84 percent of Alaska's population and extends into the Lower 48 and Canada with nationwide roaming agreements.

Fleet managers can use the solution to map vehicle locations, analyze a vehicle's activity including stops, mileage and idleness, define a driver's territory, set speed alerts, create text and e-mail alerts, create productivity and maintenance reports, access historical data and more.

The solution is ideal for customers with fleets within the transportation, logistics, construction, resource development and tourism industries and government sectors.

Alaska Communications Fleet Management is the first of its kind purpose-built for Alaska - including cold weather testing and certification to temperatures as low as 80 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

"Businesses have long trusted Alaska Communications as the company they rely on for their most critical wireless needs. We are excited to extend our service capabilities beyond network and managed services to offer advanced mobile solutions. Alaska Communications Fleet Management will help make Alaska businesses more efficient and effective by improving safety in a difficult environment, reducing employee downtime, achieving fuel savings, improving route planning, and increasing customer responsiveness and satisfaction," said Gerry Canavan, Alaska Communications vice president of product management.

Alaska Communications provides its Fleet Management solution through installation of hardware in fleet vehicles and an easy-to-use, web-based interface that allows users to experience complete remote fleet monitoring from anywhere a web connection exists.
