Mark Areas, Report and Analyze with Geofences
A geofence is a virtual fence that you can create through the mapping software around a particular area according to your need, which supports reporting and real-time-alerts.
1. Real-Time Alerts:
Suppose there is a reported Covid-19 case in a commercial building. With the help of a GPS tracker system, the fleet manager can create a geofence around that area so that none of your drivers enter that area. If any of your vehicles enter that area, you will get an instant alert on your mobile app so that you can stop your driver by informing him on the phone. A fleet manager can also create a geofence around a quarantine zone. With the help of a safe-zone, you can even do contact tracing for your employees in your way. This could help the whole community in general also.
2. Reporting & Analysis:
This function helps you see the historical reports to analyze which driver went in which area to boost your contact tracing efforts for employees.
3. Route Optimization:
By combining routing features with geofencing, fleet owners can alert their drivers from getting into unwanted traffics and time-taking routes.
