ATLANTA - NexTraq, a manufacturer of GPS fleet tracking and management applications, has released its new mobile app, called NexTraq Connect. The company says the app will help close the information gap between office and field employees.

This fully integrated application will allow users to record clock in/out and break times, communicate job status, view job locations and directions, assign drivers to vehicles and track vehicle maintenance needs. The app provides information to employees in real time, allowing fleet management to become a more automated process.

"We are committed to our customers and their ever-evolving needs," said Mike Scarborough, CEO. "The launch of NexTraq Connect not only illustrates our ingenuity, but shows our dedication to growth and evolution as a market leader. Now, our clients have access to their fleet operations from anywhere, right on their smartphones.

Putting more power in the hands of employees by allowing them to clock in/out and record break times brings an added layer of information to the NexTraq platform that helps dispatchers make more informed decisions when routing, planning for maintenance and providing job locations and directions, according to NexTraq.

The app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android, the company said. Learn more at nextraq.com
