Telenor in cooperation with carefully chosen partners, has prepared a new type of service for business customers – Service for positioning and monitoring vehicles through GPS system
The service of positioning and monitoring vehicles enables the companies to always know the position of their vehicles, as well as to keep records of their use.
Benefits from this system are numerous, and some of the most important ones are:
- achieving significant reduction in operative costs and increasing efficiency and safety of business;
- optimization of schedule and route of vehicle movement;
- significant saving of fuel due to possibility of route planning, noting unforeseen vehicle use and detour from the route (for private purposes) or due to possibility of noting sudden change in the fuel level in the tank (extracting, i.e. stealing fuel);
- faster response to sudden situations (traffic jams, vehicle breakdown and similar) and sudden customer requests (prompt locating of the closest free vehicle);
- increase in driver, vehicle and goods safety, through control of speeding and activating alarm in case of undesired events;
- simple monitoring of all road delays;
- saving in vehicle maintenance costs through timely notifications on the necessary service etc.
With this Telenor service it is possible to monitor not only the position and speed of the vehicle, but also to see the complete history of vehicle use, as well as data such as temperature and number of engine revolution, fuel level, torque, gas pedal pressure etc. Also, it is possible to monitor data such as door opening, cooling vehicle temperature, “panic“ key pressing etc.
Positioning and monitoring vehicles by integrating technologies such as GPS, GPRS and Internet is a solution which provides the best possible safety and control of the company fleet, reduces operative costs and increases total efficiency of business.
All vehicles can be monitored in real time. The softver that is installed for the user contains detailed maps, including maps for Montenegro and Serbia. The offer will also contain special roaming packages for vehicles that are often abroad, which enables their monitoring around the world.
The new service is useful to all companies that have their own fleet such as for example trade chains, distributers of goods, courier services, emergency services, police, army, transporters, leasing and insurance businesses, security companies, rent-a-car, but also companies form many other fields.
How does the system work?
The service of positioning and monitoring vehicles provides remote locating and monitoring the movement of vehicles through the system of global positioning (GPS), mobile phone network (GPRS) and Internet. The location of the vehicle is determined through GPS device installed in the vehicle, which, on the basis of communication with the satellite, gives data on the position, speed and route of vehicle movement in real time. GPS device also contains a SIM card through which the data on the vehicle (through GPRS) are sent to control center where data on all vehicles are gathered. The end user has the possibility through Internet portal or through special application installed in his/her computer to monitor the vehicles live, analyze their movement and generate reports on the position and use of vehicles.
Users can define an arbitrary number of locations that are of interest in the map. Every passing and delays of the vehicles through one of the defined locations is specially recorded and presented in the reports.
System „tailored“ to suit customers
When creating this service Telenor paid attention to “tailor“ this service so as to suit customers. Therefore the system is based on the monthly subscription that includes the complete service – from installing, that is performed with the customers themselves, at place and time that is most suitable for them, all the way to lifelong guarantee. Customers, therefore, have no hidden costs, regardless of how long the vehicles are used – what they pay each month is only the subscription for the service. Each breakdown in devices or their replacement is performed in the shortest time possible free of charge during the time of using the service. All data on all vehicles will be saved, which means that it is possible to review the whole vehicle movement history at any time from activating the service.
Telenor has also provided and additional benefit – the possibility of purchasing the devices through repayment, so that the companies can distribute the initial cost for the devices themselves into 12 monthly installments, that will be repaid with the monthly subscription.
