Smart Fleet Upgrade

By | General Information | No Comments

Smart Fleet is working to upgrade all of your 2G units!

AT&T has already started taking down their 2G technology.  This is causing delays in information being relayed to the system.  The data will be forwarded as soon as the unit drives past a tower with 2G technology.  As the cell phone companies continue to take down this 2G technology, the towers will be fewer and further between.  This will cause devices to not update.

We are currently reaching out to all of our customers to get their devices updated before any lapses occur.

If you have older units, let us know and we can upgrade you today!

Our companies have noticed that using GPS fleet tracking they has been saving in fuel costs.

For every hour your vehicle idles, a half gallon of gas is wasted!

Smart Fleet helps you reduce these fuel costs by using idle and off hour alerts to let you know if the vehicle is running when it’s not needed.

We also have fuel card integration on multiple platforms to make all of your fueling needs easy!

Smart Fleet – Worker Protection

By | General Information | No Comments

GPS not only tracks your employees, but also helps to protect them!

In the event of an accident, GPS can help to show if your driver was speeding or did a harsh stop trying to prevent an accident.  These reports can help prove your drivers innocence in a court case!

GPS tracking is also useful to employees who may forget to clock in or out or mark how long they were at a job site.  With GPS you can see exactly how long a vehicle was at a job site and when the employee started working.  This can be beneficial for any payroll you need to backfill!

How Does GPS Work?

By | General Information | No Comments

Global Positioning System, or GPS, works through cell phone towers and satellites.

another sat sfThe government currently has 24 satellites that track GPS.  Your device locks onto these satellites.  Only 3 satellites are needed to triangulate and pinpoint your location.  With 6-10 satellites, your location is as accurate as 15-30 feet of your vehicle.  The more satellites available, the more accurate your results!

The data obtained from these satellites is then sent directly to the device and stored there.  As you near cellular towers, the data is then relayed through sat sfthem using the same technology as your mobile device!

The information is then loaded through a data processing system, which is accessible to you through the internet.  Since this is entirely internet based, you have access to this information anywhere you have internet access!
