Novatel Wireless delivers a compelling proposition with best in class technology, managed services and support, and airtime in one tight bundle.

With the software, the customer is empowered to run a series of real-time reports based on customized events, such as location, driver behaviour, and vehicle diagnostics. QVIS offers the service via a monthly fee to their business customers.
