IntelliTrac Maintenance Record HW

Maintenance Starts With Accurate Data

IntelliTrac Elite combines real time clocks, accelerometers, gyroscopes OBDII or CanBus monitoring to ensure accurate odometer and hourmeter readings are recorded to warn of scheduled services.

Furthermore CanBus or OBDII data can immediately flag any fault codes present within the vehicle to advise of any non scheduled maintenance or repair requirements

Finally human intervention ustilising pre-start check lists and incident reports on mobile devices or fixed in cabin termionals provides the final piece of the puzzle to ensure vehicles, plant & equipment are adequately maintained and safe to operate.

Questions & Answers

How Can I Use GPS Telematics To Manage Vehicle Maintenance & Servicing?
"Fleet Managers are responsible for ensuring that company vehicles are serviced and maintained to operate safely, reliably and within manufactures specifications"

A Good Fleet Management Maintenance & Servicing Solution Should :

  • Provide automated service reminders based on sechuled service intervals for each vehicle in the fleet.
  • Service schedules should include many types of service & maintenance, and not limited to oil changes and safety check, buyt should also include tyre rotation schedules, timing belt replacements and more.
  • Service schedules should be variable and based on a combination of odometer, hour meter and time.
  • Each service schedule should include parts required and inspection check lists.
  • Enter and Log vehicle maintenance & service data, parts used, costs, check list items
  • Enter expected disposal criteria such as time, odometer or hour meter readings
  • Be alerted of urgent & pending maintenance reported via pre-start check lists
  • Calculate total cost of maintenance over vehicle lifecycle and per km travelled or hour operated
  • Pre-empt vehicle disposal based on mean time between failure and mean time to repair

A Great GPS Managed Maintenance System will further enhance the offering by using GPS Telemetry data to:

  • Provide reporting, dashboards and alerts on
    •     Vehicles due for service based on odometer, hour meter or time
    •     Vehicles due for disposal based on odometer, hour meter or time
    •     Vehicles due for disposal based on mean time between failure
  • Provide Electronic Pre-Start Check list exception data alerting maintenance issues
  • Accurately Monitor Average Fuel Consumption is within vehicle specifications
  • Correlate driving behaviour to fuel consumption, maintenance costs & Mean time between failures
  • Correlate utilisation to maintenance costs
What is GPS Tracking & Telematics?
GPS trackers, (also referred to as Telematics Devices, AVL - Automatic Vehicle Locators, IVMS - In vehicle Monitoring Systems, IVDR - In Vehicle Data Recorders)
are devices that are fitted to the vehicles in your fleet. They receive signals from GPS Satellites orbiting the earth. The GPS information is stored within the GPS Tracker and immediately sent to an IntelliTrac server in the cloud using wireless internet over the mobile phone 2G/3G or 4G networks.

The GPS data is processed at the server and displayed on your Office PC Internet Browser or Smartphone/Tablet app as:

  • Vehicle icons moving along on a map
  • Easy to read dashboards of trending data
  • Vehicle Movements Activity Reporting

The raw GPS data received by the server can be processed and analysed to provide many value added features such as:

  • Alerts on any defined events such as leaving an area after hours
  • Reminders on when services are due to Road Tax, Insurances, Regos, CTP, RUC etc need payment
  • Analysis of Driving Behaviour
  • Other Compliance related reporting such as electronic logbooks
What Should I Consider When Buying A GPS Fleet Management Maintenance System?
The first thing you should consider when buying a GPS Fleet Management Solution for your company vehicles is the reputation of the company.
With so many companies out there supplying GPS Tracking Systems masked as GPS Fleet Management Systems, or very basic Fleet Management Systems without any telemetry data, it is important you do your due diligence to ensure the software you are evaluating, provides all the necessary functionality without making traditional assumptions which are not reliant on GPS Telematics Data.
A true GPS Fleet Management System should also manage the complete lifecycle of your company vehicles from acquisition to disposal and provide accurate reporting and reminders based on accurate GPS Telematics Data and ultimately provide fleet managers with a total cost of ownership of each make and model of vehicle in their fleet based on per km travelled or per hour used.
What Does GPS Fleet Management Maintenance System Cost?
With so many products and software combinations, it is difficult to provide indicative costs, however there are a few factors to consider when purchasing a GPS Fleet Management Solution for your business.
Most providers will use the following pricing models:
  • Buy GPS Tracker Out right without any contract, pay for a packaged sim card data, fleet management software & mapping licencing fee annually in advance.
  • Buy GPS Tracker at a reduced subsidised price on a minimum 3 year contract, pay for a packaged sim card data, fleet management software & mapping licencing fee monthly in advance.
  • Lease or Rent a GPS Tracker on a minimum 3 year leasing or rental contract which includes sim card data, fleet management software & mapping licencing fee monthly in advance.
Why Do I Have To Pay An On Going Fee?
Reputable GPS Fleet Management providers like IntelliTrac, are required to pay companies like Google Maps for commercial licences, and for more complex solutions we are also required to pay other mapping companies for the provision of speed limit data and other map data which is taken for granted these days.
In addition your annual or monthly subscription will also include:
  • Provision of the sim card in your GPS Trackers as well as the data costs for transmission of data from the tracker to our servers
  • A cost for running a cloud service to host the GPS tracking software whether it be with a reputable cloud provider such as Microsoft, Amazon or Google, of whether it be in proprietary data centres with dedicated or shared servers.
  • A cost for providing support and help desk staff to answer your calls, provide training and rectify any issues if and when they occur.
  • A cost for on going product development, as browsers, operating systems, mapping interfaces and other features are constantly changing and require updating to keep your service active and working at its best.
  • A cost for maintaining a field service crew of technicians and account managers to be at your service as vehicles are sold and devices require removal and refit, or to provide a consultative approach to ensuring you are getting the best from our solutions.
