Wow! January is already over – only 11 months left in 2020, so we had better get cracking! 

Before we do though, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the turbulent times that Australia has faced since the end of 2019. 

We have seen terrible bushfires and biodiversity losses in Australia, huge hailstorms lash pockets of the east and flooding in some other areas, and with more flooding forecast for parts of Qld and NSW in coming days. Our thoughts are with those that have suffered hardship as a result of these disasters. 

The Coronavirus outbreak in China is of global concern. It has spread to several countries already and has caused severe illness and death to some of the many who have been infected. A global health emergency is in place and we hope that the spread of the virus is controlled quickly and that a vaccine is available very soon.

A Quick Look Back at 2019 (and Beyond)

We have accomplished so much in our (almost) 20 years to date, with 2019 being our biggest year on record. We saw so many changes to TigerFleet, with the addition of our TigerFleet Tracking module, our new shared offices at UOW Innovation Campus and 30 new features added to our popular and reliable TigerFleet Management software.

We upgraded our website to make it more informative, added a News page so that we can share industry information and product updates (we also share these on our social media pages) and created a Downloads page for people to access templates and other materials and use for FREE.

TigerFleet also created a YouTube channel, which is a great place for our existing clients to find out all the little tips and tricks you may not be aware of that make using our software even easier, for new customers to get familiar with the software and for prospective clients to get an in depth look at many of the screens to help them decide whether TigerFleet is the right solution for their needs. We have twenty videos uploaded and will be introducing our followers on social media to these and new ones that arrive over the coming weeks.

Most importantly, we updated all of our source code to keep our software operating smoothly with the changes that Microsoft and Google have implemented to the web browsers. We are committed to keeping TigerFleet a secure, reliable and responsive cloud-based software resource.

We’ve Hit the Ground Running

January has already seen the release of our Defects management functionality in the TigerFleet Management module and the linking of TigerFleet Tracking vehicle odometer data to the TigerFleet Management Vehicle Odometer screen.

What Else is Planned for 2020?

We have many new items on our planning board. Just a few of these exciting new features are:

  • Extra servicing schedules and the increased ability to tailor your service schedules
  • NHVAS Mass Management Accreditation audit and data logging screens.
  • Integration of the Automated Driving Hour monitoring and Electronic Work Diary functionality in TigerFleet Tracking with TigerFleet Management.
  • Automated fault reporting.
  • Workplace Health and Safety management audits, compliance, management, JSA/WMS and reminders.
  • Xero Accounting API Integration
  • Bulk Import of Vehicle and Employee data for new users via csv

In Closing

We thank you all for your wonderful support since we first opened our doors in 2000 and are proud to have some of the customers from back then still with us today. We hope that these and our other wonderful relationships carry on well into the future. 2020 is set to be bigger than ever, with so many more things in development and our exciting new addition to our tracking platform.
