Geofencing fleet tracking alert types
Geofencing Fleet Tracking alarm messages can be sent to one or more email addresses. Alerts can include the following:
- Out-of-hours: : if the fleet vehicle ignition is activated outside preset working hours, or
- If a geofence rule is broken, either a mandatory or prohibited zone rule.
Here are some examples of how our Geofence Fleet Tracking System is used in practice:
1. A housing maintenance manager needs to know that all his fleet vehicles are available on call inside the boundaries of the city.
Solution - Specify the boundary of the city as a 'Mandatory Zone' between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm, Monday to Friday (or as required).
2. For Telematics Insurance purposes, a transport manager has to be sure that trucks and vans are not left outside fleet drivers' homes overnight but are instead parked in the depot.
Solution - Specify the depot as 'Quartix Named Location: Mandatory Zone' between the hours of 8.00pm and 8.00am (or as required).
3. A business owner wants to be sure that his employees are not returning home from site during the working day.
Solution - Designate the fleet driver's home as a 'Quartix Named Location: Prohibited Zone' on weekdays between 8.00am and 6.00pm; emailed notification will be given if the fleet vehicle does return home during the day.
In summary, Fleet Tracking and Geofencing can help you manage your business by alerting you to exceptional or prohibited behaviour - keeping you one step ahead.
