• Real Time tracking systems: This type of system will collect the information of the vehicle and send it immediately or every 2 minutes to the servers that will process the information. This type of system is ideal when it is a priority to have an on-line, instant control of the vehicles activities.
• Passive tracking systems: This type of system will collect the information of the vehicle and store in the memory of the GPS device. Periodically (usually every night) the information is downloaded into the servers for processing. This type of system is ideal for those cases when requirements are less strict.

There is more than meets the eye regarding the technology that makes up a GPS vehicle tracking system. Most companies who are shopping for a GPS Tracking System are not familiar with the underlying technology that is the key to the performance of the system. We have several customers who bought systems from our “competitors” based on price alone, and ended up having to scrap the system for various reasons.

When implementing technology into your company, it is important to remember this:

There is a price to purchase, and a cost to own, and if you purchase the wrong product, the cost to own will exceed the purchase price several times over

Excessive speed reporting is programmed by the customer by utilizing the website. Each vehicle can be programmed for different speed thresholds. For example, company’s service vehicles that may be towing a trailer or loaded with equipment may be recommended to stay under 65mph. The sales executive’s vehicles may be set to 75 mph. Once the vehicle is traveling over the set limit for more than 5 seconds, an alert is recorded and sent to our server. The speed violation can be sent to a cell phone via text message and/or an email to notify the fleet manager. It will show the exact time and date of the violation, a latitude and longitude as well as a map showing where the violation occurred.
