This kind of present you get from Gurtam team on New Year’s Eve. So get ready for Wialon Hosting 1216 Update. This time again the system is supplemented with brand new features and those recently made available in Beta-version. And if you were the first to try them, now can you can be the pioneer to put the new functions into practice.
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.
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).
The Internet of Things has sufficiently shifted the nature of connected devices, creating the dominant niche for low-power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies. These solutions are ideal for devices that need to send smaller amounts of data over long ranges, with particular constraints around power consumption – and at comparatively lower costs.
Given the immediate need for LPWAN in IoT deployments, Sigfox is one of the biggest names in the game. With over 7 million devices registered in its network and a footmark on all geographies, the provider is rapidly boosting its global network delivering energy-efficient connectivity for a multitude of connected devices. After France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, Ireland is the sixth European country to complete full SIGFOX network coverage. Sigfox is now spreading fast to New Zealand and Australia enabling these geographies by 25 and 80% respectively with its connectivity.
Today we are excited to announce that Gurtam has officially launched the new office location in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Over the last several years we have experienced substantial growth all over the Latin American region. Most of our efforts advancing Wialon in Latin America were done out of Boston-based office. To further support our growth in Latin American countries we will now have a physical location in the region with local support and sales personnel to ensure our local clients get as much support and attention as they need to effectively deliver Wialon-based telematics solutions to their end-user customers.
Being represented in 120+ countries worldwide, Gurtam may soon need a separate partner conference on every continent. But in 2017 we continue striving for a consolidated community and unite our partners at a traditional Partner Conference in the very place where it all started – in Minsk, Belarus.
Last days were quite intense for us with all eyes fixed on Wialon units counter since we were in expectation of 1 000 000th unit. Boston, Moscow, Dubai and Minsk offices had no sleep, looking forward to seeing the coveted figure. The wait is over – today the Wialon system has got its 1 000 000th unit connected!
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.
