Push Technology is an industry-leading process for managing the data that stems from continuous GPS tracking. More commonly known as a form of communication whereby a system user initiates and permits certain actions, Fleetsmart have incorporated this technology into their software to make managing data for GPS tracking applications and communication with drivers much easier.
Traditional means of managing GPS vehicle tracking application data involve intermittent polling of GPS units rather than continuous, live monitoring and opportunities for communication; with a sufficient ‘lag’ prohibiting constant tracking. Fleetsmart believe that by using Push Technology in their fleet tracking software, such issues can be effectively addressed.
“Upon realising how difficult it is for fleet operators to manage their GPS vehicle tracking applications and effectively communicate across their fleet, we decided that adding Push Technology principles to our fleet tracking software would be incredibly useful for our current and prospective clients,” commented Chief Executive of Fleetsmart, Nick Wilkinson. “Having a lag in any tracking system simply renders it impractical – especially with organisations that face demands for increased security measures. This is what makes the real-time tracking and instant-messaging through our newly-implemented Garmin Screen solutions such a viable option for tackling these issues, and we hope that this will further enhance the suitability of our vehicle monitoring software for organisations large and small.”
