Boca Raton, FL /PRNewswire/ - MiX Telematics (JSE: MIX,NYSE: MIXT), a leading global Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of connected fleet management solutions, has extended their contract with Intercape for 5 years. Intercape is the largest intercity passenger transport service operating across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Intercape Freightliner offers overland freight services throughout Southern Africa. The connected fleet comprises 222 vehicles.
Intercape has been a customer of MiX since 2015, and the contract extension illustrates the value and world-class service that MiX provides as a long-term strategic partner to Intercape.
The solution utilized includes the premium MiX Fleet Manager SaaS platform, with the MiX Journey Management module and the recently introduced MiX Vision AI (artificial intelligence) video solution. All modules work synergistically to provide Intercape with tracking, actionable insights and fleet management for a safe, sustainable and efficient fleet.
Passenger and driver safety are integral to Intercape, which is why MiX Vision AI is vital in detecting and alerting drivers and managers to unsafe or risky driving behavior. Driver safety events include fatigue, phone use, distraction, smoking and seat-belt use. ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems) events include forward collision and lane departure warnings. In addition, in-cab, audible alerts warn drivers in real-time so that immediate corrective action can be taken.
Intercape utilizes the video footage and rich vehicle telemetry data provided by MiX to coach and continuously upskill their drivers, thereby enhancing passenger safety and comfort. They believe that in order to provide optimal customer service, they require the most advanced telematics technology that provides maximum fleet insights & real-time safety interventions.
"We are thankful to Intercape for entrusting MiX Telematics with the safety of their fleet and passengers. This is a partnership where we work together to deploy a tailored solution to suit their specific needs," says Gert Pretorius, EVP and Managing Director for MiX Telematics Africa.
