    LiveTrack - Vehicle Tracking

    Keep track of your vehicles from the palm of your hand.

     If you improve your efficiency on the roads, you can squeeze in more business and establish better turn around for projects. 

    GPS has the potential to reduce the time it takes for your vehicle to get from one place to another. That time adds up. Squeeze in more appointments in a single day, or make more delivery trips in a shorter period of time. If your business is transportation, drop off happier commuters and be ready for the next group. Speedy, efficient service will keep your current customers happy, and they will be more likely to recommend you. Vodacom LiveTracker will assist in minimising wait times, and create more business for yourself.

    With Vodacom LiveTrack you can track a vehicle in near real-time via an Internet-connected computer or WAP-enabled cellphone. Vodacom LiveTrack is built on superior GPS technology and uses the latest mapping technology. Get detailed historical or real-time trip reports with this affordable, easy-to-use service.

    LiveTrack uses a small tracking device that the customer keeps on him at all times. This GPS device continuously transmits information in real time via Vodacom’s cellular network and updates movement on the LiveTrack website. It contains an SOS button, which if pressed, sends SMS to pre-defined numbers of friends or family, notifying them of their location.

    LiveTrack includes the real-time location of a person in an emergency, notification of movement and speed violations, and the ability to request immediate assistance. It can also be used to ensure that the person being tracked remains within or outside of a pre-determined geographical location over a certain time period — for example, that a child remains within a 500m radius of his school during the day. Users can even view the history of a person’s movements.

    Vodacom LiveTrack is ideal for businesses looking to track staff or drivers while keeping call costs down. Drivers can be located on a map, eliminating the need to call to find out where they are. The devices also have panic button features. Once pressed, an SMS is sent to the list of predefined numbers that you set up, as well as to the stolen vehicle recovery service provider if this option is selected.

    The importance of GPS tracking for your business

    GPS vehicle tracking can be the pivotal edge over your business competitors. Investing in a good vehicle tracking device can help you monitor your employees, keeping track of your cargo thus ensuring timely delivery of your products and services. 

    Time is Money 
    You will incur costs for every minute your vehicles are on the road. With Vodacom LiveTrack installed, you will be able to closely monitor all your vehicles, giving you the necessary information to makes decisions in cuts and adjustments to improve business efficiency. 

    Satellite tracking will also keep your employees honest. Being tracked by GPS will deter them from making inappropriate pitstops. It will also keep them from idling while on the job. You can also have an overview and create more efficient routes. Quicker routes will save you a lot of money.

    Reputation counts 
    In this competitive age, you cannot afford to make mistakes. The companies which you do business with are closely watching you. They can spot inconsistencies and have the capability to compare how you do with other similar businesses. It's in your best interest to have firm and concise control over your business operations and maintaining a strong reputation. 

    Vodacom LiveTracker vehicle tracking tools will ensure you will meet the expectations of arrival times for your customers. With the increase in reliance on technology, customers are more ready to communicate up to the minute. This means you need to have up to minute answer when customers call to ask where your truck is.
