Cartrack Geofencing

It may seem like a complicated concept but with Cartrack setting up a geofence has never been easier.

All assets (such as vehicles, equipment etc) are visible on the map, and users can use that map information to set up their geofence parameters.

Users can pick and choose which assets they want visible on the map, to make the process even easier.

What Is Geofencing?

Cartrack enables you to implement world-class geofencing for your fleet.

A geofence can either be created as a pre-defined set of boundaries or dynamically generated as a radius around a point location. Geofencing works as a location-based service, with an app or other software using either GPS, wi-fi, Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) or cellular data to trigger a pre-programmed action whenever a mobile device or RFID tag enters or exits the virtual boundary.

A geofence can trigger text messages or prompt mobile push notifications to alert fleet owners and managers of any transgressions.

Geofencing has a wide range of benefits, such as preventing vehicle theft, intelligent business data and time keeping.

Should your vehicle be stolen and leave the geofence area that you created, you will be alerted and can take appropriate action to try to retrieve the stolen vehicle.

Make the most of Geofencing by collection intelligent, meaningful data for your business. By pairing up the data created by geofences with other information relating to driver performance, your fleet managers and drivers can ensure that they’re paying attention to the right key performance indicators, improving the way that you utilise resources in your business.

To keep your business on track geofencing can inform you when someone arrives at a site and leaves. This ensures that there is driver accountability, and allows you to make sure your drivers are on schedule.

How Geofencing can Benefit You

Modern fleet management offers many features that give you much better control of your fleet. One of these modern technological wonders is geofencing, which allows you to create a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographical area in which your vehicles are allowed to travel, ensuring that you always know exactly what is happening with your drivers.

Never forget another RUC payment

If you drive a diesel or another type of non-petrol fuelled vehicle, then you know all about Road User Charges. Thankfully, the Cartrack system is seamlessly set up to allow you to calculate your RUC charges off road.

RUC is charged according to how many kilometres a vehicle travels, and its type and weight. All of this information is collected by the Cartrack system; the GPS calculates the distance covered. You can then setup a reminder for RUC expiry, using our Reminders functionality.
