Earthwave Technologies released FleetWatcher App, described as an App-as-a-Device solution that delivers tracking ability via a smart mobile device. Functionally it is comparable to a solution that uses a permanently installed transponder, the company reported.

A smart device equipped with the app transmits real-time tracking data that is used by the Fleetwatcher Mater-
ials Management Solution platform. Current applications include driver and equipment assignment support and driver safety reporting.

The app is available from Play/App stores. Upon download, it is operational in minutes, the company reported.
