The purpose of the company
As a result of the increase the range of operation by the Warsaw company manual vehicles management in Excel was abandoned in favour of an automated fleet management system.
“Considerations over the investment in the GPS monitoring system were preceded by a thorough analysis being the basis for defining the objectives that we intended to achieve with the new technology. We were looking for a solution enabling: driver control, cost optimization and automation of administrative processes, among others settlement of a delegation or records of use of vehicles for private purposes. Our requirements were met by the GPS Guardian system” – Krzysztof Racz (fleet administrator) said.
Implementation of GPS monitoring
Precisely defined goals and high expectations required the implementation of an advanced structure. The vehicles were equipped with telemetric exchanges supporting the vehicle identification system and the “private driving / riding” technology as well as connection to the CAN bus. The assembly included 26 passenger and delivery vehicles from years 2007–2015. Installation and calibration went well and all obtained data was satisfactory. The system could be commissioned for use by ENVAG.
“Working with the GPS Guardian system went unnoticed – the application is intuitive and took less time to master it than we thought. We have configured the system to minimize the number of entries to the application; we used automatic reporting (reports on routes and stops, private/business driving reports and fuel reports). In addition we have defined speed alerts and geo-fences that informed the right people about offences on a regular basis.” – Krzysztof Racz added.
ENVAG effectively applied the automation rules within the GPS Guardian system in this way the user receives important notifications by e-mail or telephone. The reports are generated in accordance with the schedule set by the administrator.
