The system, dubbed Prompt, will be used by companies such as Livery, Black Car and Limousine Services.
Prompt is a portable unit which plugs into a vehicle's cigarette lighter or any 12V outlet, that enables drivers to communicate using simple voice commands. Drivers can therefore sign in, sign off, receive job information, accept or decline jobs, provide ETA information, provide load/ unload confirmation as well as on-scene reports
"Allowing professional drivers to safely manage their communications via simple voice commands is essential in the current legislative environment," said Tony Cassetta, Chief Operating Officer, IMS. "Prompt is the ideal solution for organizations with drivers on the road who must be able to communicate on-the-fly in order to conduct business."
"With our strong partnership with IMS, Research In Motion and Aleph Inc, and approval of the TLC, we are very proud to present a solution to the new 'Distracted Driver' legislation," said Gene Sorkin, Chief Operating Officer, TECORIEN. "We hope we can continue to bring innovative solutions to the industry and enjoy future growth, prosperity, and continued collaboration with all our partners in all our ventures."
The product joins iLane and DriveSync in the IMS range. iLane is a hands-free, voice-activated email and content platform for in-vehicle use, while DriveSync is the ultimate turn-key telematics platform which enables a variety of solutions including PAYD insurance offerings, fleet monitoring, vehicle tracking, and government programs.
