Fleet operations are under constant pressure to deliver more efficiencies while maintaining a safe working environment for staff and protecting valuable assets. GPS fleet tracking is an essential tool for making every vehicle more effective, reducing costs and ultimately allowing business and government to do more with less.

OPAL Solutions provides complete mobile asset tracking and management tools that provide complete return on investment typically in less than one year. Hard savings in fuel, vehicle miles driven, and worker overtime are obvious benefits. In addition, fewer accidents, improved driver behavior and better execution of corporate and agency mandates deliver even more value to the organization.

Critical Fleet Data From Anywhere, Anytime

By developing and supporting the entire GPS tracking system, from vehicle modem to antenna to satellite airtime to Web application, OPAL Solutions provides the most effective vehicle tracking system available. OPAL Solutions has built a rugged and efficient system to provide near real-time information and emergency alerts that can mean the difference between life and death.

The Iridium meshed network of Low Earth Orbit satellites is available pole to pole and delivers data within seconds, anywhere in the world, at any time. Vehicles may cross boundaries, enter low speed zones, become disabled, or arrive at a landmark destination – all transparently to the fleet operations team. In case of an emergency, panic button activation notifies responders and tells them where to go, in time to make a difference.

Your Partner in Business Success

Implementing fleet policies and managing compliance is always a challenge. Reducing speed and idle time along with less erratic driving can significantly lower fuel usage, but it is difficult to maintain and enforce policies without the tools to prove violations. OPAL Solutions provides the configuration tools and reports to improve fleet efficiency and implement lasting changes that can enhance business success and growth.

Employee Transport Management System is a web-based transport management solution that streamlines and manages employee pick up/drop off. With GPS tracking technology, the solution provides, real-time tracking, employee notification, and analytic’s to improve operational efficiency. The solution is aimed at improving employee satisfaction by reducing employee wait time for pick-up by providing the ability to locate and track their pick-up vehicle. Transport departments could also realize efficiencies by monitoring utilization, travel-times etc. and re-routing

The Solution

The transport admin has to define each route referring to previous day’s route history. She/he can then identify pickup/drop off points on the route and mark/name them. These locations are automatically geo-coded into the system. Next step is to identify the employees to be picked up at these pick-up points.

Once this setup is done, the transport admin’s daily routine is to assign buses to these routes. Notification to employees etc. is automatically handled.

All employees that are entered in the system receive real time tracking URL in a welcome message one hour prior to scheduled pick-up. Another SMS alert is sent to the employee twenty minutes(as required) before pickup along with vehicle status (on-time or delayed). This helps reduce the waiting time for employees and helps them plan their time efficiently.

To further improve security and logging usage, employee ID cards can be swiped at embark/disembarkation points. This information is tied to the employee database in correlating employee attendance and female safety by ensuring at least one male colleague is accompanying a lady employee at any point of time. Panic buttons installed in the vehicle help alerting the admin in case of any emergency.

Analyze and Optimize

The Employee Transport Management System once the system has been installed and in use, collects a lot of data regarding the routes, utilization, pick-up/drop-off, travel time and distance. This data can then be analyzed to identify inefficiencies and correct them, re-engineer routes to improve utilization and reduce travel time etc.
