FleetMind Solutions Goes Mobile With the iKon From Psion Teklogix

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - FleetMind Solutions, the leading provider of wireless enabled on-board technology and enterprise fleet management systems, announced today that its innovative on-board computer product is going mobile with the iKon.

As Psion Teklogix newest rugged PDA, iKon has a sleek, compact and powerful design with robust built-in functionality. It is an ideal mobile computing device, delivering increased productivity and efficiency by enabling advanced mobile applications across the enterprise.

In applications where an electronic signature is required to confirm service or in situations where a picture or a video will support an exception to service, the newest addition to the FleetMind product line further broaden the concept of real-time service verification. "FleetMind's solution already extends the functionality of popular back-office systems such as Soft-Pak, PC Scale-Tower, TRUX and Infopro by connecting them in real-time to the truck and driver," says FleetMind CEO and managing partner, Martin Demers.

"By teaming up with PSION and adding the iKon to our product offering, we are enabling our customers to go where no waste hauler has gone before. Currently, our solutions allow the customer to manage their operations in real-time. Now the phrase putting you in your driver's seat takes on a new meaning with the ability to get customer signatures and pictures of blocked bins or other problem situations through the same real-time pipe as the rest of the data that we send to the back office."

"We are always happy to cooperate with partners that push us in new directions and broaden the application of our platforms," says Mr. Bertrand Martelle, Canadian General Manager of PSION Teklogix. "FleetMind is recognized as a leader in providing innovative solutions to the waste and recycling industry and we are thrilled to be working with them to access this market."

FleetMind's mobile driver terminal is available immediately. IT will be offered as an alternative to the widely deployed fixed driver terminal designed and manufactured by FleetMind. FleetMind also provides a centralized data repository as well as management reports and a mapping application to help waste haulers and recyclers gain valuable knowledge from the wealth of data captured by FleetMind's on-board computer systems.
