MiX Telematics Launches First Integrated Journey Risk Management/Fleet Management Solution for US Oil & Gas Industry

Motor Vehicle Crashes Are #1 Cause of Occupational Fatalities in Oil & Gas; New Solution Designed to Further Reduce Transportation Risk

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 14, 2016) - MiX Telematics (NYSE: MIXT), a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, today launched MiX Journey Management -- the first journey risk management solution for US oil & gas companies that's integrated with a fleet management platform, so that fleet managers can access both capabilities from a single portal.

MiX Journey Management is designed for fleet operators seeking an easy and automated way to keep their drivers, passengers and cargo safe and secure, while reducing business risk related to journeys.

According to CDC data, motor vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of occupational fatalities among oil & gas companies in the US, accounting for more than 40 percent of deaths. MiX Journey Management is designed to help improve safety profiles and reduce crash risk for oil & gas companies by:

  • Replacing error-prone, paper-based journey management processes with automated, electronic processes.
  • Applying a proven business process involving journey requests, approvals and real-time monitoring.
  • Enabling fleet managers to manage journeys from start to finish online, by exception, in real time.
  • Enabling fleet managers to communicate with teams in the field in real time.
  • Providing the tools fleet managers need to determine which journeys are necessary, and eliminating unnecessary, potentially unsafe journeys (for instance, those over long distances or through remote areas).
  • Reducing staff required to run the company's Journey Management Center.

MiX Journey Management features include exception-based notifications, road hazard assessment, configurable risk profile and approval processes, and robust reporting.

"Safety is paramount in the oil & gas industry, and while most people may believe extraction is the most dangerous aspect of our industry, statistics show that transportation actually poses much more risk," said Skip Kinford, President and CEO of MiX Telematics Americas. "MiX Journey Management addresses transportation risk directly with intuitive tools that help fleet managers make better, data-based decisions on journeys, and communicate with teams in the field in real time -- all from a single fleet management portal. There's nothing else like it currently offered in the U.S. market."
