Vehicle Tracking Solutions (VTS) recently announced its enhanced Android app release – version 3.0 – which the company calls “the most powerful fleet management mobile application available.”
The company’s fleet-tracking technology offers state-of-the-art maps, addressing, traffic, satellite imagery as well as a new “Street View” option, which provides the current location of vehicle vitals in the same view, according to Commack, N.Y.-based VTS.
The upgrade gives users new functionality and faster load times as well.
“This major update to the Silent Passenger app on the Android platform was geared to creating a scalable enterprise fleet management app that is able to handle the demand of operators with thousands of vehicles, trailers and assets in their fleet,” said Ryan Wilkinson, chief technology officer at VTS. “Performance tuning and enhancing the intuitiveness of the application for the user was a major focus by the Silent Passenger U.S.-based development team. Together, our development team created the best fleet management mobile app available today.”
The latest update includes features such as:
- Enhanced Route Playback with Google Street View. Users can replay and view the exact route their vehicles take
- Accurate real-time readings for subscribed vehicles such as temperature status, and battery levels for powered and non-powered devices, including a Google Maps traffic overlay
- Enhanced reporting function, providing easy-to-use reports with a timeline of vehicle events
- A count of vehicles and a map-view filter to easily locate them, including search by voice – using speech-to-text technology
“The performance of the update is like nothing we’ve seen before,” said Eric Neeld, director of IT at APEX Management and Consulting LLC. “Our mobile workforce can now look at hundreds of assets on their mobile devices with ease – viewing all our trucks, trailers and heavy equipment in the field. Aside from the standard refresh intervals, the Rapid Update and Locate Now features have allowed us to get real-time location updates in five-second intervals.”
