Figures that spell out why you should invest in a vehicle tracking system

In the latest Telematics study the below figures will demonstrate why it is essential that all businesses with a fleet should invest in a Vehicle Tracking system.

GPS vehicle tracking has proven to reduce fuel costs; GPS vehicle tracking systems have helped companies reduce fuel costs by 13% on average.

·         Cutting down on private journeys
·         Reducing unnecessary journeys
·         Monitoring driver behaviour to improve MPG’s

When implementing fleet tracking companies often realize a 23% increase in the total number of service calls completed per day per technician

·         Using the nearest vehicle finder will ensure the most suited vehicle is used
·         Increase in productivity and efficiency

Companies have seen a 46% increase in the percentage of time that service technicians arrive within the promised response time

·         Improvement in customer service
·         Analyse vehicle arrival and departure times through automated reporting
·         Give the Fleet Manager live feedback on vehicle whereabouts

On average there has been a 16.4% increase in service revenues because of improvement in customer service alone.

·         Increase in customer service means more referrals
·         Better company imagine
·         Builds more trust with customer and increase return business

According to the NHTSA, 66% of all accidents resulting in fatalities are the result of aggressive driving

·         Monitor driver behaviour and speeds of vehicles
·         Less accidents mean less claims therefore cheaper insurance premiums

Secure Tracking

We are proud to announce a new Secure tracking system that will allow you to add more security to your vehicle and also to assist the police in recovering stolen assets from personal fleet vehicles to generators and plant machinery.

Secure Tracking has many features that can assist the end user in terms of company security as well as having all the standard features that our vehicle tracking system offers. Secure Tracking offers a solution to help prevent misuse, deter theft and aid the police in the recovery process.

Standard features include:

·         24/7 visibility of vehicles and plant/asset machinery via web based interface
·         On screen, text and email alerts for tamper/theft attempts
·         Point of interest entry and exit alerts
·         Shield breach alerting for unauthorised tow away
·         Tamper alerting if the unit is moved without the power activated
·         Power loss alerting if the unit is detached from vehicle power source
·         Alarm mode reporting – plant and equipment locations given
·         Battery back-up facility within unit
·         IP67 rated unit – waterproof casing, effective in all weather conditions
·         Remote immobilisation (additional feature)

Points of interest (POI) alerts – Sent when your plant or equipment enters or exits a pre-set geographical location such as your base or customer site location.

Shield breach alerts – Sent if the plant or equipment is moved outside of a geo-fenced area. This would be activated should the plant or equipment be towed away.

Vehicle tamper alerts – Sent if unit is being moved or vandalised with ignition off.

Power loss alerts – Sent if the tracking unit experiences loss of main power or if the main power supply to the unit is tampered with.

Battery backup – The on-board telematics unit incorporates an internal battery that provides constant visibility even if the unit is disconnected from its main power source.

Remote Immobilisation (additional feature) – Innovative technology allows remote immobilisation of plant and machinery over the air using GSM/GPRS network. This feature gives control to the operators and ensures that plant and equipment is not used in an unauthorised way. Remote immobilisation can be achieved by the operator sending a ‘lockdown’ command in the administration section of the on-line software. The receipt of this message will prevent the plant from starting. If the plant is in transit when the message is received, it will not restart once the ignition has been switched off.

The Tracker sends a daily location heartbeat, even if the plant or equipment has not been switched on.

Application Areas:

        Security & Surveillance
        Plant Machinery
        Farm Machinery
        Work Welfare Cabins
