Gone are the days when children were free to roam around the estate the whole day without showing face at home, because the rate of kidnaping has gone up. Every parent has to check on their child every now and again; for this reason Techstation Company limited has come up with a solution dubbed techtrakk that will ensure you know exactly where your child is.
This solution is not only for child-watch but also for those of us who want to keep track of your fleet of vehicles or want to keep your team’s movement transparent is vital when it comes to meeting deadlines for your clients. Having your fleet fitted out with a vehicle tracking system keeps you up to date with the location of your driver and can mean you can reallocate a job to another driver in order to make the deadline.
This technology works using GPS satellite communication with the receiver unit you have purchased from Techstation. GPS tracking systems work by receiving exact microwave signals from satellites, which can determine a vehicle or a person’s precise location, speed and direction.
“Once a GPS tracking system has registered your vehicle via satellite, its receiver unit can track the vehicle or person’s position as often as every minute. The co-ordinates picked up by the satellite are then translated into a longitude and latitude reading of the vehicle’s whereabouts and are then displayed in the form of a map on a computer screen via the Internet,” says the company.
The exacting nature of the mapping technology means you can assess the location of your vehicle as well as its speed, location and direction. Ultimately the collating all of this information gives you greater opportunity to monitor any person’s or vehicle’s progress alongside the rest of your fleet. Once you can oversee how your vehicles are being driven and how long they are on the road for, you will have peace of mind that the efficient service your business advertises is the service being provided.
Having access to such a vast scope of status reports on all vehicles gives you real time access to your fleet’s movements so you can manage your assets remotely and even work out faster routes if there’s a problem on the road. Using this kind of tracking system cuts the cost of communication with your drivers and means you can solve any problem as it occurs without making expensive phone calls to mobiles.
Vehicle tracking systems run on data push technology which means you can also have real time updates as to any vehicles status. This means you can resolve any traffic problems by dispatching a new vehicle to the client rather than lose out on meeting a deadline while checking the engine vitals of the delayed vehicle at the same time.
