With ever increasing fuel prices and regulation for commercial fleets, reducing cost and improving compliance is important for most businesses. The Aberdeen Group in a 2007 report estimates an $1,100 per vehicle per year savings for customers who use fleet tracking software. This webcast will provide an overview of Microsoft Location and Geospatial technology for fleet tracking and logistics solutions. We will look at Bing Maps and SQL Server spatial capabilities providing tracking, mapping, imagery, geo-coding, geo-fencing, alerting and reporting. We will also look at OnTerra’s Bing Maps add-ons for fleet and logistics including web services for commercial/truck routing, speed limits, transportation Points of Interest (POI) and route optimization. We will review demonstrations of all of these solution capabilities, licensing options, and answer questions.
