Public Transportation: from tracking to management

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.

Chatterbox — new messenger by Gurtam

Today the range of popular messengers will be enlarged — Gurtam launches its own App called ChatterboxWhatsApp, Viber, Skype, QIP… the list to be continued. The number of electronic devices per capita is steadily growing together with the number of messengers that substitute face-to-face, alive contacts and make us move the fingers faster and faster, typing a new text. Sometimes it’s much faster and more effective to text, than to call or transfer the necessary information in person. Office life and communication with colleagues, I guess, would slow down by 90 % without skype or any other similar means of communication.

Messages Manager: optimize working with Wialon messages in the way you like

Wialon Data Center is one of the world largest M2M telematics platforms, every minute connecting new GPS tracking units. As you know, just recently Wialon Data Center has registered its 200 000th unit, and every day processes around 300 000 messages per minute. Each Wialon Hosting and Wialon Kit user works with GPS tracking units’ data base on a daily basis. And very often receives a whole lot of messages (coordinates, parameters, speed, etc.), as well as SMS-messages from the unit, commands, sent to the unit and events, registered in the unit’s history. With the aim to facilitate working with data base, Gurtam developers created a special application, called Messages Manager, which actually represents an extremely convenient message editor.

vProtoсoller — new Apps developed by Gurtam

The time-proved Wialon GPS tracking software has numerous significant advantages, comparing with other modern GPS tracking and fleet management solutions. Among the key Wialon advantages special attention should be paid to the large number of GPS and GLONASS hardware integrated into the system. The list is extending daily, and today integrators are free to make their choice and find the most suitable devices among the range of 500 supported types of navigation hardware.

But, as usual, there is one problem: our partners often complain that customers sometimes don’t want to switch to modern Wialon user interface and are still applying other GPS tracking systems. However, due to the fact that our competitors has rather limited list of supported hardware comparing with Gurtam, it’s rather difficult for them to take hold of the market.
