T@lecom Launch Live Tracking Facility For Its Wireless Delivered™ Product Range
T@lecom, developers of cost effective wireless solutions to the transport and logistics industry has launched an optional live tracking facility for its Wireless Delivered™ product range. The facility is available on both variants of Wireless Delivered™ – ‘Express’ for same day and ‘Manifest’ for overnight deliveries.
Wireless Delivered™ is undoubtedly the most advanced mobile data solution currently available to the transport industry. This affordable real-time job control and signature capture system, enables the instant, cost effective transfer of data and delivery information between any back office system and field employee via a PDA device.
The optional live tracking facility utilises information from the Wireless Delivered™ product, offering companies with the simple cost-effective live satellite tracking tool that the market has long been asking for. To utilise ‘Live Tracking’, T@lecom simply enable the facility on the PDA device and provide the company with a GPS receiver antenna and map.
Most tracking solutions provide a host of comprehensive reports on vehicle movements, most of which, logistics companies never use. The ‘Live Tracking’ facility has been specifically designed to provide logistics companies with one minute updates detailing their vehicles current location.
‘Live Tracking’ enables despatch managers to make enhanced decisions using the exact location of their vehicles as opposed to the perceived locations which are often radically different.
The system enables the back office to keep customers better informed on the status of their deliveries and make more informed despatch decisions which is essential in this tight and low margin marketplace.
Jan O’Hara, CEO for T@lecom commented: “The Wireless Delivered™ ‘Live Tracking’ facility offers the courier market a simple and cost-effective live satellite tracking tool. No other product is available to the market with one minute updates at such a competitive price.
“The facility increases the level of information that is available to the back office enabling them to make more informed decisions and provide better customer service. We already have a number of orders in the pipeline for our ‘Live Tracking’ and Satellite Navigation facilities and are confident that this optional extra will prove to be a value added tool to our customers.”
Simple reporting functionality is available using ‘Live Tracking’ but the beauty of the system is its simplicity. Unlike other solutions there is no need to employ a specialist to interpret the data or reports.
Wireless Delivered™ includes many innovative features including text to speech, voice activation, instant messaging and optional integrated satellite navigation and automatic vehicle location. Wireless Delivered™ is partnered with O2 and is in advanced discussions with the other major mobile networks.
