Secure valuable insights to day to day operation by reviewing routes taken and the time it took. Provide proof of delivery and service while ensuring your fleet is operating as expected.

Event Hotspots

Give your fleet managers to identify trends that could lead to costly downtime or a potentially more serious incident.

Fuel Management

Manage your fleets usage via data direct from the vehicles ECU or via the importation of Fuel Card data from your preferred supplier.

Centralise and automate all your scheduled maintenance and compliance obligations based on either time, distance, vehicle odometer or engine hour readings.

Receive automated reminders for compliance and service checks, such as first aid kit replenishment, monthly vehicle safety checks or vehicle WOF or COF.

Geo Fence & Location Monitoring

Mark areas of interest with Location based Geo Fences. Utilise these to record vehicle and asset movement to improve daily operations, track fleet performance and improve asset security.

WorkSafe Compliance

With recent WorkSafe changes the Health and Safety at Work Act defines that you’re not only responsible for your own employees but you also have a duty of care to sub-contractors, and anyone actively engaged with your business!

Ensure that your organisation is informed and has the tools to monitor those actively involved in your business or those that are engaged even part-time!

And crucially ensure you have the means to provide safe working environments, as even a vehicle of site is still considered part of your workplace.
