Geo-Fences are virtual parameters set up on our maps for individual vehicles or groups of vehicles. When a vehicle enters or exits these zones, alerts can be sent out and reports can be generated. You can also create a timed Geo-Fence around the address where a vehicle is stored. This means that the Geo-Fence will only be active between certain hours of the day so that, at other times; the vehicle can come and go without triggering an alert.
Geo-Fences have many uses. Examples of some of the uses of Geo-Fences include:
- an overnight freight company knowing exactly when its trucks take an interisland ferry;
- a council mowing service tracking which gardens and parks have been mown and when;
- office staff receiving notification by email when the ground staff leave a park or garden, so they can create a report to see how long the job took and create an invoice from the report;
- customers loading key locations, such as petrol stations, employees’ houses, job locations, etc.
As a customer, you can generate a report for each individual Geo-Fence, or each vehicle or group of vehicles. From these reports, you can see which vehicles have entered a particular zone (ringed by a Geo-Fence) and for how long. This information can assist you in creating accurate invoices, as well as serving to substantiate those invoices if your billing is questioned.
Geo-Fences can also help you monitor vehicles within certain zones. This is useful for ensuring company representatives remain within their assigned areas and minimise their personal use of vehicles.
