As a result of the partnership, companies that have the NexTraq GPS Fleet Tracking platform are eligible for significant insurance discounts for their commercial fleets.

“This new partnership with well-respected GMAC Insurance will provide substantial savings to our commercial fleet customers,” said Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq. “The NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform gives our customers the ability to monitor their vehicles, but more importantly, it helps them protect their assets and improve driver safety, both important risk management issues.”

The NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform offers driver safety and anti-theft features that provide customers with a tool to mitigate risk and liability.
