Patrol Fleet Tracking

Challenges

  • Municipalities and private companies alike own large fleets. Keeping track of and managing
    these fleets is a huge challenge, and if not done properly can result in vehicles not being in the
    proper location as well as wasted fuel, poor maintenance, excess repairs and many other issues.

Solutions

  • Votum’s Fleet Tracking and Management System is ideal for all types of vehicles including law
    enforcement, ambulances and other emergency vehicles.
  • GPS tracking devices are installed on vehicles to be tracked.
  • Once integrated with GPS real-time location software and activated, the vehicle’s location can
    be monitored in real time on any computer or phone with internet access.
  • The GPS unit uses satellites and cell phone towers to transmit a precise location.
  • The software reports on the data in real time, and collectively the system provides “Real-time
    Location Services”, or RTLS.
  • The RTLS is integrated with a map that can show landmarks, street names and many more
    details.
  • The system can also provide data on driver behavior, including automatic notification of events
    such as speeding or sudden deceleration which can indicate emergency situations for the
    officer.
  • Real-time reporting and notifications provide vital information to assist in preventive
    maintenance, vehicle use, location and on-duty time.
