Hubio Fleet has added a live traffic display to the online dashboard for its tracking solution.
24/7 live tracking starts as soon as the ignition is turned on. Fleet managers can then see the location of their drivers in Google Maps as well as seeing what their drivers are seeing at any moment using Google Street View. This enables operators to quickly spot potential delays and re-direct drivers on new routes and even update their customers with a reason for a delay.
Hubio Fleet’s chief technology officer Andrew Betteley said: “We’ve added live traffic to our Live Map page as we continue to listen to feedback from fleet managers and owner/operators that are using Hubio Fleet.
“Live Traffic is overlaid onto the Live Map so that the fleet manager can see both where their vehicles are in real-time together with any congestion on the road networks at the same time.”
All journeys are recorded so that users can look back over trips to double check where drivers have been and how they have been driving.
Commenting on the new feature, Hubio Fleet customer Scott Cameron, the general manager of plumbing business McKerron & Milne Ltd which runs 12 vans, said: “The real-time tracking and live traffic information has really helped us allocate our vehicles more efficiently. Running a search enables us to quickly find the closest team to a particular location. We can check live traffic, redirect them if necessary, offering a quicker response and a greater level of service.”
Hubio Fleet is also offering a free 30-day trial of its OBD plugin tracker to businesses who run 10 or more vehicles, so they can learn how to use the dashboard and see the benefits of having the Hubio Fleet tracker fitted.
