efficiently handling the involved
operational demands, they have 5
trucks, 5 small cargos, 20 trailers, 15
large utility vehicles with 40 hydraulic

They required a solution to help them track their assets and at the same time make use of their existing infrastructure. The challenges identified were as follows:
- Real-time location coordination
- Integration of the monitoring system
The company had developed an in-house backend ERP portal which they used to keep all transactional records. However, while the business was going well, they were struggling to keep track of their 50+ fleet of vehicles, monitor their movement and fuel pilferage.
We proposed our Location Based Services solution where we made provisions for the customer to access the GSM Lat-Long coordinates on the our server via API integration. This solution was designed to help them view real-time location of their transport vehicles through their backend portal.
The mobile numbers of their fleet were mapped with our system and the access to the same was given via a public IP address. An API document was handed over to the customer to assist them in the integration process. The customer was able to track the productivity and made sure everything worked in sync. The business became more organised and there was discipline amongst the drivers.
