Seon and U.S. Computing Announce Integration of Fleet Tracking and Routing Software Platforms

Coquitlam, Canada, October 23, 2012 --( Seon Design Inc. has agreed to integrate their vMax® Live Plus real-time tracking system with US Computing Inc.’s Compass routing software. The integration will enable the two web-based applications to share vehicle positioning and routing data, providing school bus operators with greater insight to help streamline operations and improve efficiencies.

“We are excited about the opportunity to share live GPS data from vMax Live Plus with the Compass routing application,” says Peter Simmons, Director of Marketing at Seon. “With the integration school bus operators will be able to use a single user interface to generate reports on route efficiency, fleet performance, and driver behaviour.”

The planned integration will involve the sharing of vMax Live Plus AVL data, such as vehicle speed & GPS co-ordinates, with the Compass web-based routing application. This will give fleet operators the ability to conduct comparative analysis of planned vs. actual routes, leveraging both live vehicle data and routing information.

Kerry Somerville, Director of Business Development for U.S. Computing says, “Seon is a company with proven technology that we are extremely pleased to partner with. The integration of Seon technology and Compass routing will give school districts the ability to look at their planned routes and compare what the drivers are actually doing – all in the same window, in a true web-based system.”

“We are very pleased to be working with U.S. Computing to complete this integration,” adds Terry Akiyama, President of Seon Design Inc. “School transportation officials will now be able to make more informed decisions about their fleet operations with the combined power of vehicle location and routing data.”
