MiX Telematics unveils key solutions at Kuwait expo
Kuwait, December 12, 2012
MiX Telematics, a leading provider of fleet management, driver safety and vehicle tracking solutions, is showcasing its innovative products for the oil and gas industry at the ongoing Kuwait International Petroleum Conference and Exhibition (KIPCE).
MiX Telematics is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and has offices in South Africa, Uganda, the UK, the US, Australia and the UAE. Its commercial customers include Parmalat, Schlumberger, Chevron, Greyhound, Go-Ahead Group, Spar, De Lijn, Vectalia-Subus and Scania.
The company is using the Kuwait expo to illustrate the safety and efficiency benefits that result when implementing an effective fleet management system, said a senior official.
"With human error being the cause of up to 80 per cent of motor accidents - as referenced by the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers - it's critical for oil and gas companies to commit to a solution that helps them to monitor and improve driver safety," remarked Alan Hall, the managing director of MiX Telematics (Middle East and Australasia).
MiX Telematics fleet management solutions provide customers with 24-hour access to vehicle location data, along with reporting tools that deliver key business insights. Operators are therefore equipped to make informed and timely decisions pertaining to overall performance and safety, he stated.
"An example would be identifying poor driving trends and high-risk drivers - and planning training interventions accordingly," noted Hall.
"Our offering - designed to identify, mitigate and manage driver risk - combines In-Vehicle Monitoring Systems with driver training, presenting a one-stop safety solution for oil and gas companies," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
