FMS Tech offers geo-fencing in UAE to boost fleet management
In-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS) and Telematics are known for their ability to track and trace vehicles with Global Positioning System (GPS) location, but Fleet Management Systems & Technologies (FMS Tech) is taking security a step further by introducing Geofencing software as part of its portfolio for the GCC.
FMS Tech is now offering this next-generation programme in the GCC to improve the nature of quality control and company policy adherence.
Geofencing is one of the most powerful features that FMS Tech offers as it gives the administrator control of establishing a virtual boundary around a specified location and sends alerts when a specific vehicle enters or exits the area.
Designed for maximum transparency on the whereabouts of your fleet, this feature allows an administrator to control the movements and locations of the company’s vehicles at all times - notifications are sent to the administrator’s device in case of any disruptions.
Using the 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.
The fundamentals of the IVMS software and hardware is similar to the black box of an airplane, but it also offers much more including fleet information ranging from vehicle routes and driver performance to policy violations and perimeter breaches.
FMS Tech clients and business partners can activate this software easily by contacting the company’s representative to guide the process, or by using the FMS Office 2000 portal and setting the parameters and details themselves.
A previous version of this article stated that FMS Tech was the first to introduce Geofencing in the GCC market, a claim that is disputed by MiX Telematics.
