A lightweight, web-based fleet tracking and management system, DigiFleet features animated pans, zooms, 3-D perspective and fly-over routing, with support in more than 56 countries worldwide. Using real-time GPS and low-cost cellular or global satellite networks, the system assists in routing the closest vehicle to a job, monitors excessive speed or idling, and controls vehicle start and stop. Fleet operators can mix and match tracking devices to suit their needs. The system also supports advanced user-defined geofencing, in which a circle can be drawn directly on the map and the coordinates are sent over the air to the user.
The Clutch Concrete Solution gives users information in real time to make decisions that will reportedly optimize customer service and profitability. It offers customized alerts to display late deliveries, slow-loading plants, excess start-up times and shutdown for drivers, and customers not adhering to scheduled pour times. Other features include automatic status updates based on GPS location; automated timekeeping integrated into a payroll system; job-specific directions for each delivery straight to the driver; and, personal daily driver productivity reports.
