Ooredoo has today announced the launch of a new “Smart” solution – Smart Fleet –designed to enhance Qatar's transport sector and boost the knowledge-based economy, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.

Ooredoo’s Smart Fleet Management Solution is designed to fit the needs of any company that has a fleet of vehicles, whether they operate in the services sector, transport and logistics, passenger transportation or construction. The solution, which is an innovative cloud based service and deploys GPS and GSM technology, can centralise and manage all transport-related information so that companies can plan fleet activities, reduce operational costs and optimise resources.

Smart fleet management technology could provide a vital tool to reduce traffic pressure in Qatar, as companies use the solution to ensure their vehicles avoid jams and keep roads clearer and safer for other motorists. The service features a driver behaviour analysis tool that enables companies to track employees driving abilities, as well as fuel optimisation and saving options. Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Operating Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “We are going to make 2015 the year of ‘Smart Services’ for businesses. The launch of Smart Fleet services is an important step, since transport companies provide vital amenities for people and goods across the country, and this solution has an immediate impact on their activities.”
