Historical Tracking - 1 DayTrackitnow store your data for a minimum of 6 years and it is available 24/7/365.  All journeys displayed are colour coded on the map to show the speeds that the vehicle was travelling and all stops are numbered. There is a `trip stops` summary showing the address with times and colour coded icons to show stopped, idling, PTO engaged and driving events.  Graphs also show speed, ignition on/off and idling times.  All journeys and idle periods are itemised so that you can easily see where to improve fleet efficiency.

Route Reporting

Route ReportingTo help identify and eliminate vehicles overlapping on routes and inefficient schedules you can, either by day or by week, re-run and check the overlap of the routes for up to 6 vehicles at the same time. Each vehicle is shown in a different colour, and all of the stops are numbered to help you easily optimise your fleets operation.  This is a key management tool that will help fleets operating with multiple depots or groups of vehicles covering overlapping regions or territories.

Driver Identification

Driver ID couples vehicle activity information with the specific driver.  This offers a wide range of reports that can be produced against the driver giving the company detailed information on which vehicles the driver has driven, driver based time sheets and driver based journey information.  The drivers are displayed alongside the vehicle on the main tracking screen giving an easy view of who is driving the vehicles, rather than manually assigning drivers to vehicles.  Easy to use shortcuts allow the users to text the driver directly from the ERA software. 

Privacy Button

There will be times when business vehicles or personal vehicles will be used outside of company hours and this is where the privacy button comes into its own.  The privacy solution allows the driver to keep personal use of the vehicle masked from users.  When the driver activates the privacy solution the ERA software masks the vehicles location and all reports have the address marked as private.  At the end of each journey the privacy button resets, and when the next journey is started it alerts the driver to choose a Business Journey or a Private one.  Keeping tracking of business and private miles allows companies to conform to the HMRC private use requirements.

EU roaming SIM cards

All Trackitnow tracking devices are supplied with SIM cards that can easily be enabled for EU roaming.  Remote activation of EU roaming can easily be enabled by the Trackitnow office, if a vehicle is travelling abroad.

Worldwide roaming SIM cards

Temperature monitoring - Ambient

The Trackitnow real time temperature monitoring solution simultaneously reports on the temperature from a string of temperature sensors.  If the temperature goes above or below pre-defined temperatures levels then instant alerts are sent directly to the ERA software.  A full log of all the temperatures recorded during the journey are easily available to be reported on for a minimum of 6 years and this supplies all the data required for proof of delivery and transit at the correct temperature.

Accident camera

Trackitnow have teamed up with Smartwitness and Novus Insurance Approved accident camera's.  The accident camera's support forward and rearward facing camera's, that link directly to the Trackitnow tracking device.  Every time the accident camera records an event it will alert the ERA software and record an event on its SD card.  The benefits of this solution is that it helps to protect the driver against - crash for cash, false / exaggerated whiplash claims and conflicting reports of actual events. A scheduled report can be sent to the fleet manager when a camera event has been recorded.  All events are stored on the SD card in the camera which can be simply removed and the events and recordings downloaded onto a Windows PC.

Road Speed limit exceeded

Trackitnow have developed a “ROAD SPEED LIMIT EXCEEDED” reporting tool that allows any fleet administrator to see if and when any local or national speed limit has been exceeded and for how long.  This gives users of the Trackitnow ERA Tracking System a new and previously unavailable degree of understanding about how vehicles are used relative to the legal speed limit.
