A lot. The number of vehicles you can track at once is unlimited. WorkWave® GPS can provide you with the service you want whether you have one tracking device or hundreds.Depending on your computer and web browser you will probably not want to display more than 500 to 1,000 vehicles on the map at one time.
Our GPS trackers communicate the GPS location data via cellular data networks. WorkWave GPS uses Verizon and T-Mobile networks. Below are the coverage maps for both Verizon and T-Mobile.
All GPS tracking devices require a clear path to satellite signals. We recommend placing your GPS tracker in an area of your car within view of a window. The GPS tracker will have poor reception if you are in an airplane, a metal building, underground or in some large parking structures.
Absolutely! Vehicle tracking can dramatically reduce the amount of time your employee spends filling out paperwork. Our reports and scheduling system tracks mileage and appointments automatically for your drivers. You can service more customers, reduce expenses and increase customer service with WorkWave GPS.
Scheduling and rerouting is easy with WorkWave GPS! Now you will always know “who’s the closest” when you need to make a dispatching decision. WorkWave GPS will help you to assign jobs to the right person based on a variety of factors, including job priority, worker skill sets and transit time to the customer or between jobs.
Some vehicle tracking companies will tell you that an expensive, built-in system is tamper-proof and will catch unauthorized driving. The truth is that any vehicle tracking system can be disabled. Putting foil over the antenna or pulling the power from the unit are two of the most common techniques.
The only proven approach involves a little management effort:
Continue this process diligently for two or three months. Once the employees realize that they cannot game the system they will stop the unauthorized driving.
There are a few different tactics depending on what’s going on.
The WorkWave GPS tracker serves as a tracking device. The tracking device obtains location coordinates (fixes), speed, and course from GPS satellites. These coordinates are transmitted via a wireless phone network to our server when they are only a few seconds old. Users then view real-time location, speed and direction information on our online map.
This means that you will know where your people are, where they’ve been, when they arrive, when they depart and where they are heading. Furthermore, this information is stored and can be used to create reports that help you manage your people and respond quickly to customer inquiries and needs.
Our tracking system is an active system. This means that fixes are sent to our server when they are obtained. Passive systems collect data throughout the day. In a passive system the data must be taken from each vehicle at the end of each day or week by an employee and loaded into a computer.
Passive systems cannot tell you where your vehicles are right now so they cannot be used for short-notice dispatching. Because getting the data out of a passive system is a daily chore they are usually abandoned after a few weeks.
