Based on its recent analysis of the North American school and transit busZonar-Systems-Award-Logo.jpg telematics market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Zonar with the 2018 North American School and Transit Bus Telematics Company of the Year Award for its comprehensive telematics and inspection solutions in the school and transit bus market. Zonar’s telematics solutions improve bus fleet operations by delivering increased safety, maintenance, fuel efficiency and driver productivity. The company’s use of a radio identification (RFID) tag system for electronically verifiable inspections and various other innovative technologies to ensure safe, efficient and compliant school and transit bus fleets has established its leadership in smart fleet management.

"Zonar has bridged the gap between inspection and service with its patented Electronically Verified Inspection Reporting (EVIRÒ), which scans RFID tags that are placed in areas on commercial vehicles that the Federal Motor Carrier Association mandates be checked," said Gokulnath Raghavan, Team Lead & Industry Analyst. "All data from these tags are broadcast to the company’s Web-based platform called Ground Traffic Control®, from where fleet managers can monitor digital logs that indicate whether a particular part requires immediate service or not. In addition, the tags can be used for child checks and verifiable driver clock-in times."

“We design every product in our suite of pupil solutions to ensure the safety of our children and to provide school and fleet administrators with a deep look into their processes. By helping them uncover insights into their operations, districts can increase efficiencies and cost savings across their fleets,” said Ian McKerlich, CEO and president, Zonar. “This recognition from Frost & Sullivan validates our team’s ongoing development of innovative and useful platforms, hardware and software enabling us to remain our customers’ most trusted insights advisor.”

Acknowledging the need to ensure that every student riding a school bus is accounted for and gets on and off the at the correct stop, Zonar developed a mobile-based app called Zonar Verifyä. This provides rider safety and visibility using its RFID-enabled Z Pass™. Zonar Verify is integrated with an online management portal, RouteBoard, to handle route exceptions and daily bus management. This technology solution helps ensure the 'right bus, right stop' scenario happens for every student by sending alerts to the driver, while also conducting student ridership verifications. Furthermore, Zonar addresses the need to comply with emission regulations using remote vehicle diagnostics. This technology can help reduce the costs incurred due to idling by more than 70%, saving fleets hundreds of dollars per vehicle per week.

In a significant move, Continental AG - a leading German automotive technology company and automotive manufacturer- acquired a majority stake in Zonar in 2016. This allowed Zonar to broaden its presence in the automotive industry and further innovate hardware and software solutions.

“Continental’s investment in Zonar allows us to continue to enhance our already robust suite of solutions while broadening our business into connected and mobility services.” said Dr. Michael Ruf, Head of the Commercial Vehicle & Aftermarket Business Unit, Continental AG. “Frost & Sullivan’s recognition of Zonar’s deep commitment to providing best-in-class fleet technology is another proof of how important Zonar’s contributions to our business are,”

"Zonar also offers unique integrations, such as video-based safety solutions for coaching drivers. This service is accompanied by 24x7x365 technical support," noted Gokulnath Raghavan, Team Lead & Industry Analyst. "With over 100 existing and pending patents in fleet management solutions and proven validation of technologies, the Zonar solution addresses all the key logistical challenges in public and pupil transportation."
