APIs to Extend your Logistics and Transportation Fleet Management
PTV xSERVER - Geofencing API
GEOFENCING AND CORRIDOR FENCING FOR FLEET MANAGEMENT (integration with SAP Applications available)
Prevent theft and keep high-security transport safe
Why implement the Geofencing API by PTV xServer?
Due to its standardised interface, the Geofencing API by PTV xServer can be easily integrated into any existing fleet monitoring solution. It enables both geofencing and corridor fencing: While geofencing ensures that vehicles cannot leave a defined territory, with corridor fencing they must stick to a specific route. As soon as the geofencing system detects the GPS signal outside the defined area or route, an automatic action is initiated. This action may be a message, an alarm screen, or even interventions in the vehicle's electronics to prevent it from starting. Our Geofencing API is already in use for the following applications:
Monitoring of agricultural and construction equipment to prevent unauthorised removal
Area control for rental cars to prevent driving outside of the agreed upon boundaries
High-security transports and transportation of money and valuables
Apply fences around given locations to recognise vehicles entering or leaving your defined area.
Area fencing based on locations
Calculate corridors along your calculated routes to determine if your vehicles are leaving the predefined paths.
Corridor fencing based on routes
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.
