BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 11, 2017) - MiX Telematics (NYSE: MIXT), a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, announced today that oilfield services company Nine Energy Service, Inc. (Nine) has selected MiX Telematics to ensure that its fleet is fully compliant with the upcoming FMCSA ELD mandate.
Nine is implementing MiX Fleet Manager and MiX Vision, an in-vehicle video monitoring solution, to improve safety, efficiency, compliance and security in its fleet of light- and heavy-duty trucks. All MiX customers receive Service for Life -- services designed to drive great results and optimize return on their telematics investments.
"We knew we wanted to go beyond just basic compliance and really leverage fleet management and monitoring for the safety of our employees as well as for a competitive advantage," said Brett Quigley, Director of Fleet & DOT Compliance at Nine. "As we explored options, MiX Telematics stood out for its emphasis on Service for Life and its integrated in-vehicle video -- we felt video was a crucial piece of the safety puzzle. We're excited to complete the MiX rollout and start to gain all the benefits of comprehensive fleet management."
Skip Kinford, President and CEO of MiX Telematics Americas, said, "Nine is taking all the right steps with respect to ELD compliance: getting an early start, looking at it as an investment in safety, and taking a strategic approach to getting maximum gain out of the technology. They provide a great example for other fleets that are considering ELD strategies."
Kinford said that MiX Vision has become a strong differentiator for MiX in the Americas. MiX Vision consists of in-vehicle cameras that are integrated with MiX's onboard computer and web-based fleet management platform, providing visual evidence to improve driver coaching and determine if subrogation is required in the event of a vehicle crash. It maintains a rolling 72 hours of footage per vehicle and automatically adds links to video clips within driver safety scoring reports, helping fleets:
- Make more informed decisions around incidents involving their drivers;
- Identify drivers who may need additional coaching and training;
- Prevent crashes; and
- Ultimately reduce their insurance rates.
