A range of SmartWitness solutions will be launched this week (w/c 22nd July 2019) to Eworks Manager customers ranging from single dashcams to live multi-channel systems.
Eworks Manager provides comprehensive job management solutions to 1,000s of businesses in construction, electrical, HVAC, glazing, horticulture and cleaning services, and many of those clients are keen to add live video telematics to their offering.
Eworks Manager have clients of all sizes from multi-nationals to sole traders and provide a platform to manage their workflow, including quotes, inventory, assets, employee scheduling, monitoring and invoicing.
The partnership with SmartWitness now means that they can add video telematics easily and with little or no vehicle downtime.
Eworks Manager Global Business Director David Taylor said: “Our clients need to protect themselves against the “blame game” of road incidents. If a firm cannot provide video evidence of what happened in a road incident, they are laying themselves open to potentially expensive and time-consuming legal disputes.
And he added: “The reason we have chosen SmartWitness for this partnership is because the support they can give to help us grow in the video telematics space and because they have the best products on the market.”
“This is a partnership between ourselves and SmartWitness and it means we have little or no capital expense up front but we can pass on economies of scale to our clients, so everybody’s happy.
“The SmartWitness product range suits all the requirements of our clients, from blue-chip construction firms needing connected multi-camera systems for their fleet, to a one-man-band needing just a dashcam for his van.
“Also SmartWitness has offices in the USA and UK which are our main two territories so we have video experts on the ground and can help us offer bespoke solutions to all our clients.”
The SmartWitness technology that made this partnership possible for Eworks, is the SmartWitness API platform, a revolutionary application that allows traditional telematics providers to add video functionality easily, securely, and profitably.
SmartAPI integrates with traditional telematics systems via the cloud so service providers can add SmartWitness video hardware to their existing applications and enhance the services which they offer their clients.
Paul Sarris, SmartWitness Director of Strategic Partnerships, said: “Video is an essential part of fleet telematics and modern fleet management, but a lot of traditional tracking companies don’t want the huge expense or time involved in overhauling and updating their systems. SmartAPI is the simple answer that provides a cheap, quick and easy way to offer video functionality to their clients.
And he added: “The potential for up-selling video services to clients is huge and extremely profitable and it also opens up other solutions as well with additional features such as driver ID, alarm triggers, driver distraction and ADAS.”
