Clever Integrations

2016-02-26

MiX Telematics, Prodot and Kienzle join forces to deliver a truly integrated solution in a niche segment. 

Combining the resources and building a strong partnership between all three companies resulted in the outcome of a slick and scalable telematics platform, which is also adjustable to sustainably support specific processes.

Based in Germany Prodot was founded in 2001 by business partners Mischa Hüschen & Pascal Kremmers. The company aims to deliver professional, high-quality software for internationally active companies.

Also based in Germany is Kienzle Automotive, which deals with sales and service of devices and systems in the automotive environment. Its product portfolio ranges from tachographs to complex telematics systems designed to control and optimise vehicle fleets.

Focusing specifically on telematics, Kienzle has worked with MiX Telematics for nearly 20 years selling into a number of industries, including bus and coach, waste disposal and safety management.

 Integration requirement

Prodot was approached by transport infrastructure and urban development company Eurovia. The organisation was interested in a fully comprehensive telematics solution to help them increase efficiency and profitability.

Eurovia had specific requirements to collect and display a number of different data inputs including geo-positions, fuel consumption, working hours and maintenance. The company wanted this information available in a single, user- friendly interface with customisable reports and report subscriptions with relevant data. They also wanted synchronisation with external systems, in particular its SAP enterprise software.

Knowing that the requirements were beyond the capabilities of its current offering, and not wanting to lose the opportunity to work with Eurovia, Prodot approached Kienzle and proposed that they create a new software interface based on the MiX Telematics hardware platform in order to deliver to Eurovia precisely the data they required.

With this key objective in mind, Prodot, Kienzle and MiX Telematics set about to develop a highly available telematics portal hosted in the cloud. The brief was to develop a solution capable of evaluating data and events in a customer-friendly way and subsequently provide reports.

Combining the resources and building a strong partnership between all three companies resulted in the outcome of a slick and scalable telematics platform, which is also adjustable to sustainably support specific processes.

The newly developed platform includes an alarm portal which has been specifically designed to surveillance the transportation of dangerous or high value materials travelling across European countries. This synchronizes all important data simultaneously to a database and immediately notifies the user when specified events have been triggered. This is scalable via an automated process to any number of vehicles and types of events, meaning that the entire activity of a fleet can be monitored. Within the same development a driver scoring module facilitates the analysis of a variety of driving criteria, the aim of which is to increase cost savings and reduce the risk of accidents. Users can easily and freely define scoring metrics based on their fleet and business needs.

Once up and running, drivers' scores are calculated based on individual driver performance in categories such as safety, economy and speed. Drivers are then able to access their scores and compare them to those of their colleagues.

Successful outcome

 The system that has been developed met Eurovia's requirements well, it passed all the tests to record the relevant information and successfully completed the deep integrations the client required. To date, more than 700 machines and vehicles are now equipped, and Eurovia has fully moved to the Prodot solution.
