The current GPS Fleet Software version used by the ministry enables them to determine the hourly, daily, weekly and monthly activity of a vehicle.
GPS Fleet Software version 3.8.5 enhances the accuracy of the present system by providing “near-real-time” data acquiring and sending from the vehicle to the software, the sttaement from Bin Hindi Informatics said.
The more defined and detailed “monthly logbook report” is an addition to the existing number of reports such as Over Speeding, Assets Report, Waiting/Idle Time Report, Geofence Report and Driver Rating Report, it added.
Some of the benefits of the GPS Fleet Software include saving cost on fuel (Fuel Management) and maintenance by monitoring appropriate Driving Behavior by drivers and ensuring they are not using excessive speeds leading to paying high traffic fines.
This is accomplished by governing the desired asset Speed Limit and avoiding speeding by the asset. Efficiency and accurate reporting of driver’s hourly activity can be defined on Waiting/Idle time report. Detours can also be defined and avoided by creating an appropriate Geofence area saving time, gasoline and wasted lost hours waiting in traffic.
