FMS Tech launches geofencing software for fleet management
Geofencing gives control of establishing a virtual boundary around a specified location and sends alerts when a specific vehicle enters or exits the area
Fleet Management Systems & Technologies (FMS Tech) has introduced a geofencing software for fleet management. The fundamentals of the in-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS) software and hardware is similar to the black box of an airplane, but it also offers fleet information ranging from vehicle routes and driver performance to policy violations and perimeter breaches.Geofencing gives control of establishing a virtual boundary around a specified location and sends alerts when a specific vehicle enters or exits the area.
Using a global positioning system (GPS) and radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, geofencing triggers an alert in real time, whenever a parameter is violated and it gives the administrator the ability to remotely disable the vehicle if it enters a restricted area.
Here is an example of how Geofencing is used:
● The manager sets geofencing parameters for some or all of the vehicles through the software
● A driver leaves in a vehicle that is not authorized to leave that specified parameter
● An alert is sent to the fleet manager via SMS and Email (or their preferred method)
● The fleet manager can see the information about the driver and the vehicle and call the driver
● The driver and fleet manager can then address the situation and reach a consensus on how to move forward
