Fleet tracking - anywhere

Almost two years ago, www.TMGanywhere.com offered Pay As You Go online tracking for individual customers and small companies. Now, TrackMeGo Limited has recently launched www.TMGanywhere.biz, which caters for larger fleets, as well as those customers who want even more control over their tracking.

The ethos behind the company's web based tracking portals is that the systems are not tied into one piece of tracking hardware. Originally designed to support the Tramigo T22 SMS based unit, TrackMeGo soon expanded to GPRS trackers. To date, it supports ten models of tracker, in both SMS and GPRS modes. The company also offers to support other trackers as and when customers request it. Companies who have already invested in tracking hardware can look to TrackMeGo to provide online support for their units. The company aims to offer support for a wide variety of trackers, making TMGanywhere a central tracker hosting source.

TrackMeGo has also spent a lot of time talking to various manufacturers and distributors to find the best featured and value for money tracking hardware for customers. This, according to TrackMeGo, has been achieved in the company's TMGAVL unit which, as well as the usual speed warnings and geo-fence breach alerts, boasts a panic button, 2 voltage sensing inputs and two switched inputs. This means that as well as monitoring the status of the ignition, TrackMeGo can also record the date, time and place of situations like the doors being opened. It also has the ability to remotely activate two vehicle circuits, as well as being able to disable the vehicle, should it be stolen.

Within both portals, TrackMeGo offers detailed embedded Google Maps, and the facility to plot points externally in Google Earth, if users have that installed. TMGanywhere.biz takes the features of the company's original portal and builds on them. Within the individual unit history page, users are now offered a "snail trial" facility, and the ability to download the entire history page as a CSV file. Manual comments can be added to the history file to note events, for example, allocation of a vehicle to a particular driver.

TrackMeGo's new Live Viewer shows the position of all users' assets at the same time, notifying them when one of them returns an alert message. TrackMeGo also offers emergency back up notifications. When the company receives an SOS, over speed, geofence breach or power failure warning, TrackMeGo can send an email and/or an SMS to users' specified contacts to alert them of the problems.

Assets can be allocated to groups, with individual user accounts being restricted to groups as you require. This is said to make it ideal for head office to see all the assets, while individual branches/depots can only see their own. It is not just vehicles either. By supporting units like the GT60, TrackMeGo provides protection for lone workers so companies know where their staff members are. A panic button and "punch-in, punch-out" buttons on the unit maximise the cover firms can offer your workers.

A well known Pizza franchise in London recently used the facilities at TMGanywhere to locate and recover a stolen delivery bike at the home address of the thief. Fitting TrackMeGo's TMGAVL unit to their bikes offered not only protection of the asset, but also of the rider. The SOS button provides an effective system for the driver to alert the managers of an immediate danger. If the vehicle is subsequently stolen, it can be remotely disabled rendering it useless, and ultimately more recoverable.
