PeopleNet Unveils New Mapping, Safety Features for Energy Services
By: PeopleNet March 05, 2014
PeopleNet, a vendor of fleet-mobility technology, has launched new mapping and navigation features for its Energy Services suite.
The product serves U.S. truck fleets in the upstream and midstream sectors. Users include all segments of the oilfield service industry, including producers, builders, well-service providers, and haulers of fluid and crude oil. In addition, PeopleNet is drawing on its parent and sister companies' lone-worker, mapping and navigation technologies, to speed up development of new products for energy-service fleets. The new mapping and navigation services are based on detailed maps of private and leased oilfield roads. The Oil and Gap Map Portalis is a Web-based application used by back-office dispatch personnel to manage the navigation needs of vehicles. It includes reporting, dashboards and scorecards to help manage compliance with road-usage agreements between producers and landowners. CoPilot Oil and Gas Navigation is an in-cab application that uses oil and gas field mapping for providing turn-by-turn directions to the driver. Location data, including wells, is installed in the device and is accessible in the points-of-interest menu.
