ATLANTA — NexTraq®, a leading GPS fleet tracking and fleet management company, announced the release of its new mobile app, NexTraq Connect™. The company said this fully integrated application will allow users to record clock in/out and break times, communicate job status, view job locations and directions, assign drivers to vehicles, and track vehicle maintenance needs. The app provides information to employees in real time, allowing fleet management to become a more automated process.

Because it is fully integrated with the NexTraq platform, this shift from a vehicle-centric approach to a vehicle and employee approach adds enhanced functionality for customers, says the company.

“We are committed to our customers and their ever-evolving needs,” said Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq. “The launch of NexTraq Connect for iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ not only illustrates our ingenuity, but shows our dedication to growth and evolution as a market leader. Now, our clients have access to their fleet operations from anywhere, right on their smartphones.”

NexTraq said that allowing employees to clock in/out and record break times brings an added layer of information to the platform that helps dispatchers make more informed decisions when routing, planning for maintenance, and providing job locations and directions.

The NexTraq app for iPhone and iPad is available in the Apple App Store and the Android application is available in the Google Play store.
