Telectrac Navman introduces Director Weather, providing real-time view of hazardous road conditions

Telectrac Navman Director Weather

Teletrac Navman has integrated with Weather Telematics to provide Director Weather, a tool within the Teletrac Navman Director fleet management platform that delivers real-time weather-based road conditions and predictive weather intelligence. This information is delivered up to six hours in advance so dispatchers can be advised of delays and safety risks.

“What’s different from other weather applications is that we’re able to convert weather information and present that as road conditions visually on the map—what our customers really want to know in terms of weather,” pointed out Michael Bloom, director of product management with Teletrac Navman.

Information from this predictive data integration enables fleet managers and dispatchers to determine if a driver’s route needs to be adjusted or cancelled altogether, mitigating risk through real-time access to weather-based road conditions including water, snow and ice, as well as inclement weather leading to visibility, hail, wind, lightning and hydroplaning risks. Two-way messaging, real-time and predictive weather conditions and on-the-fly rerouting by dispatchers help guide at-risk drivers, ensuring they take the necessary precautions and stay in control during adverse conditions.

“Weather Telematics employs a combination of actual weather conditions, data science and machine learning to offer fleets the unique ability to not only predict weather and weather-based road conditions, but also take any necessary actions to reduce driver risk during inclement weather situations,” said Bob Moran, chief executive officer of Weather Telematics, Inc. “We’re excited to partner with Teletrac Navman and empower Director users with dynamic weather data.”
