CMS Vehicle Tracking
The CMS SupaTrak technology is a full GPS tracking system that operates using the cloud which means vehicles can be monitored in real time and information accessed at any moment during the day or night. The fleet can be monitored on any mobile device that is connected to the service and gives a map view down to street level which shows where all vehicles are at one particular moment. p>
The system can produce a range of reports which can either be accessed online or sent to an individual manager’s email. From the history of a particular journey through to completing and submitting timesheets, the CMS vehicle tracking technology is designed to make things immediate and simple for business owners whether they have a small or large fleet.
The SupaTrak software can be integrated with a number of different useful add-ins such as:
- Driver ID
- Vehicle alerts
- Route planning
- A panic button
It can be purchased or leased as the full version or as SupaTrak Lite which offers a budget solution for smaller businesses. The cost of the full SupaTrak software varies depending on the size of the fleet and the complexity of the installation required. Prices for this can start at as little as £14.90 per month. The SupaTrak Lite has a standard rate with a minimum 36 month contract which costs £16.31 per month and £195.72 annually.
CMS Ecotrak has been developed in association with a number of haulage and waste management companies and is a software solution designed to keep track of fuel usage and driving behaviour. It means that fleet managers can have access to a whole host of information including route selection, driver behaviour and fuel consumption for any particular journey or employee.
Improving driver behaviour can not only help bring the cost of fuel down but also leads to other savings such as insurance, a reduction in accidents and less wear on individual vehicles. CMS SupaTrak boast that installing the monitoring software in a fleet of vehicles can lead to a minimum reduction of 7 to 10% in fuel costs.
CMS Driver Coaching
CMS Safer Driving Assistant SDA2
Most drivers will have been trained to operate their vehicles but that doesn’t mean they don’t need to update their skills now and again. Reducing the amount of fuel that is consumed and operating in a more sustainable and carbon efficient manner is something that can reduce environmental impact and also save a company money. p>
The Safer Driving Assistant fits on the dashboard of a vehicle and gives alerts for instances of over breaking, excessive idling or even over revving of the engine. The details collected for each driver can be used to produce a report that gives an Energy Efficient Driving Index. This can then help to illustrate and modify unwanted driving habits and reduce both the impact on the vehicle and the business costs.
