PTV xSERVER - Fleet Tracking API
FLEET TRACKING INTEGRATED INTO YOUR EXISTING SYSTEM
Use GPS tracking to locate your fleet in real-time
Why should you employ the Fleet Tracking API by PTV xServer?
The PTV xServer Fleet Tracking API is a software developer component, available as a cloud-based web service or an on-premise solution. Due to its standardized interface, the component can be easily integrated into an existing software architecture. Vehicle trackers transfer the GPS locations to a central system at regular intervals, which then displays them on a digital map. In effect, this means that dispatchers and fleet managers have the data they need, when they need it. This increased level of transparency facilitates the identification of inefficiencies and a more efficient fleet use.
The Fleet Tracking API enables many additional applications, such as:
Monitoring driving behaviour and performance
Receiving notifications about punctual arrivals at checkpoints as well as deviations from defined routes or areas (also see Geofencing)
Comparing planned and driven routes
Verify bills from subcontractors and toll invoices
Search for clients, depots and fuel stations in the nearby area
Emergency buttons (Emergency- and Breakdown-call) and event-driven actions like notifications when vehicles are moved at unauthorized times
The Fleet Tracking API enables you to configure tracking profiles based on your needs. You would like to start working with the API immediately without making any modifications? No problem. We offer several pre-defined standard profiles, including adapted profiles for dense or sparse signals, that are carefully designed to fit most standard use cases as an out-of-the-box-feature.
Configure your tracking profiles based on your needs or use pre-defined standard profiles
The Fleet Tracking API offers different tracking modes: You can choose to display single GPS points or the vehicles’ whole track history. When displaying full vehicle tracks, you have the option to also show driving direction and speed.
Display only the current location or the whole track history of your vehicles
PTV xServer allow you to plan and change clusters based on locations (customer addresses, postcode areas etc.). Common use cases are the management of field representatives, the planning of warehouse locations and their delivery areas as well as delivery planning.
PTV xServer are designed for processing big amounts of data and therefore predestined for companies with an extensive field force and / or numerous locations to consider.
