Most of consumer goods are transported by land. Our partners mastered the whole process of ground transportation, from fuel control to driving behavior and tacho data analysis. But that doesn’t seem to be enough – businesses more and more often perform refrigerated transportations of special categories of goods where temperature conditions are critical (chemical products, medications, flowers and perishable subsistence).
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 6 in 10 people with dementia will wander. The disorientation, caused by the disease, makes even familiar surroundings become unfamiliar, causing people to wander and get into dangerous situations that can lead to serious injury or death. Searching for people suffering from dementia or other conditions affecting their cognitive abilities is especially challenging. Unlike with a missing child, they often don’t comprehend that they are lost and won’t ask for help or respond to someone calling their name. They also sometimes take shelter in out-of-the-way places and, in tragic cases, are found dead just meters from their homes.
There are many methods and services one can use to keep the loved ones with Alzheimer safe, but tracking technology is becoming an increasingly popular option for caregivers. And we’re extremely glad our partner GPSER from Sweden is involved in such important projects.
Although Wialon is known as one of the best fleet management solutions, the scope of its application is much broader. With the functionality to monitor 300+ parameters, the system is capable to control any asset, be it moving or stationary, and extended hardware options allow to manage even the most sophisticated machinery.
Country by country Wialon conquers the world with one simple approach: whenever there’s a problem there must be a solution. Customized solutions for the UAE region and flexible system configuration allow our partners to afford almost any large scale project, be it commercial or governmental.
By actively promoting Wialon in the region Creation Heavy Equipment Trading, a reliable Gurtam partner in the UAE, won a contract to implement a project for the Government of Ras al-Khaimah bringing together what Wialon does best – real-time tracking and fuel control.
GPS tracking has become a common thing in the modern world: thousands of companies use GPS hardware to monitor transport location, speed, fuel consumption and other parameters. Absolute majority of GPS devices use GPRS for transmitting data to tracking systems’ servers. Despite the rapid development of telecommunication technologies, cellular connection still does not cover the whole globe.
To get around the issue, some opt for a “black box” recorder of GPS trackers: it stores the data on unit movement and transmit it to the server as soon as cellular network is available. But what about hose users who need constant real-time tracking? The solution is found at 740 – 35 000 meters above the ground. In other words, real-time GPS tracking in the areas with weak cellular signal can be provided by devices with satellite terminal.
Improper temperature control is a key reason why food and other perishable cargo are wasted in the supply chain. Smart transportation companies understand the value of reliable cold chain monitoring and delivering properly cooled food and pharmaceuticals to customers. Aside from the financial costs of improper cargo temperature control, today’s regulatory climate demands that refrigerated assets be monitored and controlled in real time.
According to the Agreement on the International Carriage of Perishable Foodstuffs and on the Special Equipment to be Used for such Carriage (ATP), refrigerator trucks are to be equipped with independent temperature recorder. But how can we carry out a remote real time refrigerator temperature control? Today we’re going to give you an overview of Wialon-Carrier DataCold integration.
As you already know, we offer a wide range of customized training opportunities to our partners, aiming at helping them develop new spheres and grow their existing customer base.
This time, on April 29, 2016 (Friday) at 12.00 pm Minsk time (GMT+3) we are holding a webinar “Wialon Eco Driving” which will give you a chance to explore the intricacies of this helpful tool and start using it in your business activity.
There’s no doubt that Wialon platform has largely become world-famous for its vehicle tracking solutions. But more and more often our system finds its application in the area of stationary asset tracking and workforce management. Let me just mention TatASU company – Gurtam partner located in Tatarstan – offering comprehensive Wialon-based fleet and workforce management solution with a single dispatching control center. The center specialists manage 8500 motor vehicles and more than 1000 employees, equipped with mobile control units. The control units send operative data to 700 dispatch stations and monitoring specialists positions. The project scale makes it one of the major in the Russian Federation.
As you know, knowledge comes from experience. And it is way better to learn from the mistakes of the others than from your own faults. Running a successful satellite tracking business is no exception. Wolfgang Busch, our partner from Germany, has an enormous experience in GPS-tracking and would like to share it with you.
This article deals with a number of questions you have to ask yourself and find answers to as long as you want to buy GPS-tracking equipment for business needs.
