About Car & Fleet

Car & Fleet is a vehicle tracking and fleet management system created in-house with leading technology. Using GPS/GPRS technology, the system will track vehicles and provide real-time fleet monitoring and management. The system also comes with a GPS module developed to allow our clients to get accurate position data and use its GSM module to send the information to any system, including mobile devices. Its internal memory allows for storage of the GPS coordinates when there is no GPRS coverage or for retrieval at intervals configured by the user.
Our vehicle tracking system was designed to address the challenges of vehicle owners that need to manage the use, productivity, and security of their automobile(s). The system comes equipped to handle traffic volume and coverage area. Its target customer has either a single automobile or a fleet of vehicles that needs to be tracked – locating its GPS position, what direction its going, how fast it is moving, and ensuring it is not violating any rules or laws.
