Novatel Wireless and NexTraq to Feature the Future of Fleet Management at Connected World Conference 2012

SAN DIEGO, June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Novatel Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVTL), a leading provider of intelligent wireless solutions, and NexTraq, the value leader of GPS vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions, today announces that they will present under the theme "The Future of Fleet Management" at Connected World Conference 2012, taking place June 11-13, 2012 in St. Charles, Ill. Attendees are invited to learn how effective fleet management solutions help drivers make better, smarter decisions behind the wheel, and also provide powerful incentives to fleet operators and enterprises.

During the session, attendees will learn how to harness the power of compact wireless technology for simple installations of fleet management solutions with value added usage-based insurance solutions. Solutions are able to accurately include reports on GPS location, ignition, geofencing, trips and events. They also have the capability to capture data about driver behavior, such as excessive engine speed, rapid acceleration, harsh braking, speed violations and excessive idling.

"Our fleet management solution is a simple decision for owners and operators of a wide range of vehicles, bringing an offering to market using the Novatel Wireless product makes it simpler still," says Alain Sergile, director of Product Management at NexTraq. "Generally, our customers experience an average Return-On-Investment within two to four months of implementing our solution. This is typically based on fuel use savings in the 20-30 percent range, with additional savings coming from our innovative usage-based insurance.  By minimizing the cost of in-vehicle installations, our customers will be able to achieve even shorter ROIs."

ABI Research has found that fleet systems are experiencing strong growth, with global fleet management and trailer tracking system subscriptions growing from 13.3 million in 2012 to 30.4 million by 2016. The research firm noted the usage-based insurance market segment is helping spur growth.

"Industry dynamics and innovative approaches such as the NexTraq offering are both redefining and expanding the market for fleet management," says Tyson King, VP of Sales for M2M Integrated Solutions, Novatel Wireless. "We believe simple-to-install, cost-effective solutions with tools to mitigate risk and liability for the fleet while also reducing operational expenditures have the potential of driving significant adoption into new markets."

"The Future of Fleet Management" session will be led by Tyson King and Alain Sergile on Tuesday, June 12, 4:50PM - 5:30PM CT at the Connected World Conference 2012, taking place June 11-13 in St. Charles, Ill.
