Why a fleet tracker?

What are they? 

Our business vehicle tracking devices, commonly known as fleet trackers are our range of products aimed at businesses, to give not only peace of mind for business owners but to provide a range of helpful tools for monitoring their vehicles. 

Currently we have 5 products available:

  • uTrack
  • SmarTrack Fleet
  • Fleet SVR (Trident)
  • SmarTrack Wireless
  • SmarTrack Wireless +

What do they do?

The uTrack device is a self-monitored solution for users or fleet management to monitor current and previous data. The uTrack device provides a cost-effective solution to vehicle security for your own peace of mind.

Our uTrack devices feature the ability to create reports for driving time and daily overviews, a secure online account to manage your vehicles and create notifications to a mobile device for battery disconnections, battery low or if a vehicle exceeds a specified speed. The uTrack device also allows access to the Global Telemetrics app, vehicle grouping of your fleet and the ability to add geofences. 

SmarTrack Fleet is a web-fleet management tracking system offering the complete solution to monitor vehicles and drivers. 

As well as the current and previous data that comes with the uTrack device our SmarTrack Fleet device comes with some key added features. 

Reporting tools to generate reports at the time or intervals of your choosing for mileage, journey data, private and business mileage with results sent directly to your inbox.

A notification centre which can send notifications for battery low or disconnections and excessive speed at a setable limit. 

Multiple user access allows for multiple users to be allowed access to the online portal with parameters set by the fleet manager. 

Driving style behaviour reports giving the ability to assess how the vehicle is being driven. 

Vehicle grouping which allows for vehicles to be grouped for ease of access and data.

Map views to show where selected vehicles are in relation to a map, displaying speed, battery voltage and location if required

Geofencing allows management to set perimeters around locations on a map. With a library of predefined geofences to choose from plus the ability to create your own, notifications will be sent via email or push notification to a mobile device when these areas are entered or exited by your chosen vehicle or vehicles. 

Our Fleet SVR (Trident) device features 24 hour 365 days a year monitoring from our Global Telelmetrics control centre. Our control centre will contact you if the vehicle moves without ignition or has a battery disconnection. This device also allows for an optional alarm input which will create alerts through to our control centre if the alarm sounds. Remote immobilisation can be installed to this tracking device allowing for customers to immobilise/mobilise through their online account or Global Telemetrics app.

SmarTrack Wireless offers discrete battery-powered vehicle tracking which is ideal for non-powered assets, with a long life battery this device can operate for up to 5 years. This device provides access to our app and website for up to date information on location. A SmarTrack Wireless will also provide a report of vehicle location once per day.
