Boat Fix Launches Fleet Management Program

Boat Fix, a recreational boating telematics company that provides a combination of remote monitoring, GPS tracking, geofencing, and 24/7 live customer support has launched a fleet management program for boat rental companies, boat clubs, and charter companies – Boat Fix Fleet Manager Pro.

Boat Fix Fleet Manager Pro is a service designed specifically for boat management companies operating fleets in the sharing economy. Boat Fix Fleet Manager Pro offers the boat rental, club, and charter operator several unique advantages:

  • Highly accurate GPS tracking with historical playback functionality for use in the case of an incident or dispute
  • Sophisticated, multiple and time-driven geofencing to prevent unauthorized use, theft, and entry into prohibited areas
  • 24/7/365 live and immediate business support
  • Customized fleet management reports available monthly, weekly, or daily
  • An onboard strobe light triggered by entry into a prohibited zone or delayed return to alert the user and generate an immediate corrective action

The Boat Fix telematics device that drives the system has its own built-in GPS and SIM card that communicates via the 4G network. It will transmit worldwide from any cell tower, usually up to 20 miles offshore. If out of range, the device will store up to 10,000 GPS locations every 60 seconds – roughly a week’s worth of data. Saved data is automatically uploaded when the system is back in cell range. Boat Fix Fleet Manager Pro will store all the tracking and monitoring data for seven years.

Fleet Manager Pro requires the purchase of the Boat Fix telematics device for $139 and a strobe for $39. The device comes with a lifetime warranty and is transferable at no charge to new inventory. Installation is simple and usually takes between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the vessel. In addition to the one-off device purchase, there is an annual charge of $139 for the SIM card data, business support and reports.
