MiX Fleet Manager Essential

Safe drivers and more efficient fleet operations, to eliminate unnecessary costs

MiX Fleet Manager Essential is a simple, reliable, and affordable fleet management solution for monitoring drivers and vehicles. If you thought fleet management was only for the ‘heavyweights’ of the fleet world, think again. MiX Fleet Manager Essential is the perfect solution for fleet managers and owners looking to boost efficiency with an indispensable set of features, including tracking, vehicle management and driver behaviour monitoring.

MiX Fleet Manager Essential offers peace of mind by knowing exactly where vehicles are and how they are being driven. By tracking mobile assets, in real-time and historically, fleet operators are able to better utilize their assets, manage driver behaviour, and boost the performance of their fleet, ultimately saving money. Another major advantage is improved customer service. By being able to find the closest vehicle to a customer, the number of customer visits can be increased and estimated times of arrival improved. Distances travelled can also be monitored and reduced, while vehicle misuse can be detected and stopped.

Many fleet managers need to monitor the locations and statuses of their vehicles and drivers, without wanting the complexity - and cost - of a premium, full fleet management system. MiX Fleet Manager Essential plugs this gap by offering fleet operators a simpler, more affordable tracking solution. 


  • Improved operational efficiency, with the integrated reporting suite delivering reports via e-mail.
  • Enables fleet operators to speed up arrival times at customer sites as well as provide customers with more accurate estimated times of arrival by using simple and easy-to-use functions, such as the ‘find nearest vehicle’ feature.
  • Fuel savings and improved safety due to driver behaviour modification, through real-time driver information and event notifications.
  • Thanks to the service and licencing reminder feature, assets are kept operational through the efficient management of maintenance schedules. This ensures fewer unnecessary costs and unexpected breakdowns.
  • Reduced risk and unauthorised vehicle usage. Knowing where mobile assets are and being notified about their operational statuses enables customers to reduce mileage, defend false accident claims and ensure that their vehicles are not being used outside of authorised hours.
  • Improved driver behaviour with basic driver management by configuring various event alerts including speeding, harsh acceleration and harsh braking.

Affordable fleet management for everyone

MiX Fleet Manager Essential enables fleet operators to track and trace the movement and behaviour of their vehicles and drivers from anywhere, at any time. Be it a fleet of trucks or a mixed fleet of cars, vans, and trucks, MiX Fleet Manager Essential is fleet management made easy.

Vehicles are fitted with a small on-board computer that captures and transmits vehicle and driver data. Users can then access this information online, via the solution’s web-based software platform. Some features are also available via MiX Fleet Manager Mobile, the solution’s free app for Android and iOS devices. Both web and mobile interfaces are easy to navigate and are compatible with multiple browsers and operating systems. So, data and reports are available 24/7 from any internet-enabled computer as well as from smartphones and/or tablet devices.

MiX Fleet Manager Web Platform and Mobile Application

Web and mobile accessibility makes tracking vehicles easy and convenient, while insightful data provides actionable intelligence on demand. The feature-rich software platform has the capacity to report basic, real-time information on current and historical vehicle locations and driver behaviour. Other useful information is also displayed such as speed, driving direction, ignition status, driving violations and a trail of where the asset has been. Proactive monitoring enables real-time asset management. Take immediate corrective action and send messages to and from assets and/or drivers.

Trip Reports and Vehicle Utilization

MiX Insight Reports give the fleet manager access to various reports allowing for trend analysis. Reports provide detail on driver behaviour and fuel consumption, for example, so that these aspects can be effectively managed. Reports available include asset movement reports, movements into and out of locations, driver scoring, event violations and cost analysis reports. Reports provide insight into the journeys undertaken by drivers, highlighting exceptions (e.g. entry into no-go zones), driving violations (e.g. over-speeding), and include details such as trip start date and time, location from which departed, trip distance, end location, driving time, idling time, parking time, associated driver, and more.
