8 basic features of a GPS tracking solution

Published on 02 May 15
GPS vehicle tracking services always come in a form of solution. This solution is designed by the GPS service provider company on the basis of the specific requirements of the client. That’s why in GPS vehicle tracking every solution is a customized solution.

At least this is how things should be and this is how we provide our services. But whichever kind of customization you are seeking, there are certain basic features that need to be present in the package.

The price and the number of features available will of course vary from company to company and solution to solution. Besides, not all the GPS tracking service providers in India can design any kind of custom solution requested by the buyer.
So before making any contract, you should first compare between the solutions offered by different brands. Fix appointments with the representatives, discuss about your requirements and then let them get back to you with their presentations and quotes.

Choose wisely and please go through the 8 features that we have listed below. Use this as a checklist. Whatever customization or package you will be going for, that should include these basic deliverables.

  • Real-time geo-location data streaming so that you can learn the current position of the vehicles anytime from anywhere

  • Google Maps empowered software to let you view the accurate location of all the vehicles on road in icons, within a single window

  • Instant SMS alert sent to the administrator for any kind of Geo-fence violation occurred at any point of time

  • Instant notification sent to the registered administrator’s device for every arrival and departure, to and from the client/delivery location

  • Remote fuel monitoring that includes instant alert sent on every sudden drop in fuel level when the vehicle is not moving, indicating theft, and on every tank refilling along with the information on the volume poured and the location of the petrol pump

  • Instant alert on every engine on/off which means the administrator can figure out whether a vehicle is stationery at a specific location for an extended period or running as per the schedule

  • Instant overspeed alert sent to the administrator every time a vehicle would cross the maximum speed limit set by him in the tracker device before deploying the vehicle

  • Emergency or panic buttons installed along with the GPS trackers, inside the vehicles, so that the crew members or passengers can send an SOS to the base station in case of any emergency like accident, breakdown, theft/ hijacking/ attacks, natural calamities, roadblock etc.
