DUBLIN and BOSTON, May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fleetmatics Group PLC (NYSE: FLTX), a leading global provider of mobile workforce solutions for service-based businesses of all sizes delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS), today announced that An Post, Ireland's National Postal Service, selected the Company as their trusted fleet management provider following a public tender process. The agreement supports over 900 An Post vehicles across Ireland for a four-year term.
The vehicles will be installed with Fleetmatics REVEAL+, which is a powerful yet simple-to-use fleet management solution designed to drive cost savings and improve efficiency. The solution enables enterprise customers with larger fleets, such as An Post, to manage complex organisational structures and large numbers of users, as well as to deliver actionable executive level business intelligence across the entire organisation.

"The powerful combination of Fleetmatics' solutions –REVEAL+ and Fuel Card integration – helps us stay connected to our drivers in real-time, comply with important regulatory requirements and meet our customers' needs with speed and accuracy."
