Fleet Tracking Solution | Tatvasoft

Challenge

Our US-based client is a logistics company dealing with a large gamut of dealers, customers’ vehicles, and GPS devices. The client wanted to bring all the stakeholders on a centralized platform and thus decided to develop a platform for easy accessibility. The client’s platform has two requirements, the first one was to ensure GPS position data is shown on the world map and the second one was the GNX device (GPS transmission device) should transmit data from the vehicle to database servers. 

Our client wanted a solution that can make it easy to keep an eye on the vehicles in transit. “GPS Tracking System” has a wide range of goals and objectives out of which the prime considerations while developing the project are listed below

  • Incapability to handle any kind of device/protocol and store their variable data
  • Unable to keep track with all the physical devices
  • Live tracking of the current fleet along with historical data
  • Custom violation rules
  • Fleet routine maintenance
  • Communication between driver and system and ability to guide them
  • Efficient driving report and fuel report
  • Custom reporting and scheduling of them
