Children safety is a top priority for parents. Unfortunately, only a few can afford to drive children to school or to pick them up after classes. Therefore, school buses are becoming a more preferable, yet not the safest type of commuting for a number of regions. With safety issues requiring more and more attention from city municipalities in various regions, our partners are coming up with a cure. To ensure child safety today, Wialon-based school bus tracking systems are coming to the fore.
The value of public transport for any state can hardly be overestimated. Constant route network monitoring, traffic flow tracking and routes update to assure high-level transportation service – these are priority measures for public transportation improvement. The sphere of public transportation demands precise control of transport performance and its specific parameters which are often not provided by the functionality of an average fleet management system. What’s more, a range of parameters to control is defined by local regulations and requirements.
Several years ago our partner from Kazakhstan – KazIntersoft – came up with public transport management and reporting system, developed on the basis of Wialon SDK.
Aimed at developing an effective tool for fuel management in the agricultural and construction sector, our partner – Ares Sun Company – created a fuel control module available in Wialon system. It allows comparing the volume of fuel dispensed and filled for different units and groups.
For Gurtam team GPS Tag for iOS and Android has become the first step into the world of software trackers. With more than 3 500 GPS Tag units on Wialon server center we consider the first attempt to be a success. Shortly after we ventured upon a new step in the development of tracking applications for smartphones and are ready to demonstrate WiaTag – the advanced application, based on the innovations brought to us by Android OS and developed with due regard to the comments and suggestions from GPS Tag users.
At the moment the app is at stage of open testing and will soon be available for all users.
There are many advantages to using a telematics system – from maximizing the utilization of your fleet to controlling and reducing maintenance costs to comply with government regulations. The latter is especially important in the US and Canada, where Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has been working on finalizing the Electronic Logging Devices regulation for quite some time. Current expectation is that the final rule will be finalized before the end of 2015 and the fleets will have two years to comply and completely switch from paper-based logs to electronic logs.

Working with companies, most fuel stations use clearing-and-settlement system. It means that customers pay for gas by fuel cards, which so far have proved beneficial for companies using fleet management tools. It is also an effective tool to control fuel consumption and create accurate reports. Besides, fuel stations often give discounts to customers, so there’s another great way to cut expenses.
Wialon Oil, our partner, distributes fuel cards and integrates different types of Wialon-based fuel card processing software.
Farming is changing. Equipment fleets are expanding. Costs are obviously rising. It is essential, therefore, to cope with factors that fleet managers everywhere are turning to the logistical advantages.
A modern agriculture company usually maintains a great number of fleets such as harvest technic, freight transport, fuellers and so on. The vast majority of total expenditures go to fuel and technical support costs.
Despite the fact that GPS tracking in agriculture sector is slightly different from traditional monitoring, Wialon agricultural applications have been successfully advanced with regard to this great demand. Especially when it comes to the agricultural domain, where our system has been successfully in use for over 5 years already.
We never doubt that Gurtam partners are full of creativity and new ideas and almost every day we have a chance to make sure it’s true. So, today I want to show you another effective and very helpful app — Wialon Notify and Payment Portal Service — powered by our Latin American partner GPS7000.
The service solves the issue that is a headache of any tracking service provider — overdue payment renewals. GPS7000 using Wialon SDK has implemented a renewals reminder application along with a payment portal to automate all the account renewals obtaining information about units, units cost, days, emails, etc. SDK also allows to customize the reminding messages.
