Our FSM clients have a strong interest in big-data analytics as a way to quantify FSM related data now collected using today's technology. Today, clients collect data not only on the vehicle location, but also on such factors as speed, traffic-based ETA, employee efficiency and skills-based scheduling - all factors that allow better workforce utilization within their organizations. AnalytixInsight is a natural fit for us to develop analytics solutions for our customers, and their interest in analytics is very high."
