"Prior to the arrival of vehicle tracking, I was on the phone asking where drivers were. But with the system in place, we get increased visibility and so much more. It offers us everything we want at the right price and I would recommend it to any company that has a fleet."

Asset and Vehicle Tracking Comparison with iCompario

Telematics Tracking System

Telematics has evolved.  What used to be a way of monitoring and tracking a vehicle, has now seen telematics help businesses improve their productivity, safety and security.

Combining a GPS system, either via a physical device or via a smartphone app, it is possible to record and map, where a vehicle or asset is and the physical performance.  Most telematics systems utilise communication over a 3G network, allowing data to be sent between the device or smartphone app and a central system, this allows businesses to make informed decisions which can provide instant results and a competitive advantage.

Telematics has been used for providing logistical information for business when organising deliveries to customers, or delivering vital supplies, for keeping records of where individuals are to assist with their safety, down to tracking how machinery or vehicles are working to ensure minimal downtime.  The future of telematics is here!

Vehicle Tracking System

Vehicle Tracking allows businesses to have full visibility of their vehicles.  From cars to trucks, from buses to tractors, whatever the vehicle, a vehicle tracking system can provide a range of commercial benefits. 

Businesses in a number of industries are looking towards telematics to give a competitive advantage, to help utilise their assets better, and to give peace of mind 24/7.

Vehicle Tracking is not just for medium and large businesses.  An area of considerable growth has seen new and smaller businesses utilise the benefits of vehicle tracking.  Benefits range from reducing downtime due to traffic or congestion issues, to helping educate drivers with safer and less intensive driving techniques which reduce fuel spend.

Plant Tracking Systems

Plant Tracking focuses on the assets and machinery that go into your worksite or plant.  Over the last 5 years plant thefts have been on the rise, with an estimated £1 million being lost last year alone. 

Plant tracking allows you to avoid being part of these ever increasing statistics without the need for an ever increasing range of security systems.  Businesses can now receive real time notifications for issues such as unauthorised movement, Tamper, power and even voltage drop.  Intelligent sleep patterns can help prevent your device from being detected by GSM Scanners.

With Plant tracking it is also possible to set up automated notifications to service and maintain your assets.  With more and more requirements for telematics within plants, worksites and for yellow fleets, the range and scope of the systems will only continue growing.  Whether you need a simple security tracking system or a service management tool with remote immobilisation, a good plant tracking provider should be easily able to accommodate you.

 

People Tracking

It is often said that the greatest asset any business has, is the people working for it.  People and asset tracking allows you to focus therefore on the key elements within your business and as a result these systems tend to be customisable to allow for a varying range of needs. 

People tracking provides organisations with complete visibility, assisting with realtime locating, reduction in loss, improved reporting in the field and a monitoring solution for personal protection and lone workers whilst they work and travel alone.  Asset tracking helps combat downtime through lost or stolen assets. Telemetry and monitoring equipment can give alerts to the right people in the event of an equipment failure, which if left unnoticed could prove costly.

Frequently asked questions

We’re here to help you find the ideal telematics solution

Vehicles equipped with GPS satellite receivers trace and then transmit the location to an operator.  There are a wide range of providers selling telematics, so it’s important to select the right type of system for your business at the outset. Telematics systems range from simple low cost smartphone-based apps to sophisticated multi-functional solutions.

A telematics system can trigger an alarm when there is unexpected movement, for example when the driver has not been identified or when it leaves a secure zone.  Telematics may not stop the theft but it will allow for quick retrieval of the vehicle and that is vital when the business depends on it.  If the vehicle is only insured for business use the system can also alert management to unauthorised use out of hours.

This is the ultimate benefit for most businesses and telematics provides a clear insight into your operational performance; something that was invisible before. With the data on miles travelled, travelling time, time on site, routes taken and areas covered you have an array of actual data which can be compared with your existing ‘pre-planned’ operations. With this added visibility, you can properly access your operational costs and inevitably you’ll be able to make improvements to routes, schedules, resource allocation and many other operational variables.  It’s not uncommon for companies to report 20 percent reductions in mileage and similar gains in productivity; telematics allows new working practices to be employed such as enabling engineers to work from home rather than start the day at the depot.

Commercial vehicle drivers are obliged to undertake walk-around safety inspections of their vehicle. So a smartphone app to undertake the checks will be really handy, providing immediate electronic data for compliance reports and the scheduling of maintenance to fix defects.  Telematics data also provides a useful added check for driver hours records to help ensure compliance especially for HGV drivers.
