Businesses rely on technology every day to help them enhance existing systems and improve overall efficiency. Vehicle tracking can be incredibly useful for any business with a mobile workforce, including tradespeople, transportation companies, and courier and delivery services. The use of GPS technology and innovative software applications allows you to monitor the location of your workers and assets in real-time.
Here at QUADNET, we provide tracking solutions from our trusted partner Procon, a company involved in the design and engineering of GPS Locator Units and machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless data communication applications. The ability to receive and process data from remote locations allows you to view your mobile assets and access reports based on the data received. This software-as-a-service model provides a number of distinct advantages to businesses.
How Does Vehicle Tracking Work?
Modern vehicle tracking solutions utilise a combination of hardware and software technology to fine-tune business processes, improve workflows, and automate business reporting. The small locator unit from Procon is installed into the vehicle or other asset, with location data received in real-time from a GPS satellite. This data is then sent via a standard Telstra network, with the Procon platform delivering all relevant information to applications on your computer or mobile device.
