New Real-time tracking mode is now available in Frotcom
News & Events
Frotcom is pleased to announce Frotcom's new real-time tracking, in which GPS and vehicle data are collected and made available to users on a second by second basis*.
With Frotcom's new Real-time tracking, GPS and vehicle data are collected and made available to users in real-time, when moving. The information is processed in Frotcom's data center and sent to the users' browsers, showing only a few seconds later.
The real-time information is shown on maps and graphs in Frotcom's web interface.
Benefits for both customers and fleet managersThe real-time tracking mode is ideal for fleets traveling in cities or transporting valuable goods, where it is necessary to know the vehicle's exact location, second by second. For instance, if you run a fleet of taxis, you will always see the taxi cab nearest to any pick-up point.
Emergency vehicle fleets can also benefit from the new real-time tracking significantly. By using it, emergency vehicle fleet managers can know right away the time remaining until the vehicles reach the accident site or the hospital. They can also know the exact moment when a vehicle enters an area or even a congested street, which is a factor that can interfere with the arrival time.
Once associated with Frotcom's Extended CANBus Collection module, it gives you a fantastic set of insights about tens of parameters in the vehicle. Ultimately, the association of Real-time tracking and Extended CANBus Collection allows companies to coach their drivers to improve driving performance, resulting in immediate fuel cost and maintenance cost reductions.
