Fleet Engineering gains WA grant for software testing
Fleet Engineering has software testing funding needs.


Software firm Fleet Engineering has applied successfully for the Western Australian government’s Innovation Vouchers Program.

It is one of 20 small-to-medium businesses that stand to gain up to $20,000 each to help turn innovative ideas into a commercial reality.

"The successful applicants are developing ideas that have practical, commercial application and help build Western Australia's reputation for high-quality, industry-led, innovation," commerce minister Michael Mischin says.

"In this second round, applications were received from a diverse range of industries including agriculture, mining, renewables, health and medical, e-learning, building and construction, and freight and transportation." 

Fleet Engineering provides telematics, fleet management and dispatch app-based software, including Container Elite aimed at the container haulage sector.

In the trucking sphere, it counts AAAC Towing, Superscoop Transport and CTI Logistics amongst firms involved in using or testing its products.

Fleet Engineering CEO Andrew Walker tells ATN the cash will be used testing upgrades with international IT services firm Planet IT.

"One of the things we’ve got to grapple with as a growing company is how to make sure our software, as we push updates, doesn’t affect the people already using it," Walker adds.
