LONDON --(Business Wire)--
Global fleet management and trailer tracking system subscriptions are
expected to grow from 13.3 million in 2012 to 30.4 million by 2016.
Dominique Bonte, vice president and group director, telematics and M2M,
comments, "The commercial telematics market continues to enjoy good
overall growth as smaller fleets and new non-trucking segments such as
delivery, service, and public and private transportation are being
addressed by vendors offering more affordable solutions. Qualcomm (News - Alert)
Enterprise Services' recently launched Mobile Computing Platform MCP50
fleet management solution available for $799, as well as a $19.95
monthly service plan, aims to bring commercial telematics within reach
of these markets."
The commercial telematics industry continues to adopt next-generation
technologies, such as SaaS (News - Alert), as demonstrated by the recent acquisition of
commercial off-board navigation vendor Maptuit by Telogis. Real-time
traffic is finding its way into FMS solutions with MiX Telematics
partnering with crowdsourced traffic application provider Waze in South
Africa and TomTom (News - Alert) Business Solutions launching a dispatch feature based
on shortest travel time and estimated arrival times (ETA), allowing
businesses increased customer service levels. Finally, the convergence
trend continues unabated with TomTom launching their WEBFLEET mobile
fleet managment application on iPad and Android (News - Alert) tablets.
Insurance telematics in commercial fleets is also finally gaining
momentum with recent announcements from TomTom/Motaquote and
NexTraq/GMAC. This mirrors rising interest levels in UBI in consumer
