TRACKED: Cobra launch Assist Control
Cobra are helping car, van and truck fleets control costs and manage risks by launching Cobra Asset Control – three new vehicle tracking products.
Utilising experience gained from Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT) and black box telematics technology, the company have produced Asset Control, Asset Control Plus and Asset Control Lockdown.
Cobra Asset Control has been developed specifically for leasing firms, rental businesses and fleet managers.
The tool allows focus on asset location, residual value protection, vehicle protection and repatriation, duty of care, accident alerts and proactive driver, expenses and mileage management.
Andrew Smith, Managing Director of Cobra UK, said: “Cobra Asset Control is a fleet tracking solution which provides the key business information needed by fleet owners to reduce costs and keep control of their vehicles.
“We developed Cobra Asset Control as a solution to the challenges faced by the leasing and rental sectors and our robust, easy-to-access system enables instant control of every vehicle from a PC or mobile device.”
All three solutions feature Electronic First Notification of Loss (eFNOL), which sends an automatic email or text alert to pre-agreed contacts in event of an accident.
The alert gives the vehicle details, time and location of the incident.
Each system also has 24/7 local-language support across Europe and Russia, web locate vehicle positioning and the ability to be fully transferred to another vehicle.
The latter is especially ideal for high churn daily rental, dealer demonstrator and press fleets.
Optional features include mileage reporting, theft tracking on-demand, speed alerts, a geofence alert, and lockdown, enabling the remote immobilisation of a vehicle’s engine.
