The Team’s Thoughts
“The week of the exhibition was a beautiful one, the weather was glorious and the venue was outstanding.
The FPS Expo was a busy event and was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our new in-vehicle technology advancements.
The highlights in technology advancements from Handsfree Group were the improved features of the TECh PT5, including panic buttons and warning beacons. We also received some great feedback on the success of Datalive tracking, telematics and connected vehicle CCTV, all installed to industry FCS1362 and FITAS standards.
It really was good to talk to so many existing and new customers all working together towards fleet safety and efficiency.”
