Teletrac Navman IntegrationAccess GPS tracking via SmartTrade Ultimate
Facilitate management of field staff by displaying the locations of vehicles and jobs, together with job appointments and other useful information.
There are 2 map views, which group information from SmartTrade and Teletrac Navman, and allow actions such as assigning employees to jobs.
The dashboard map shows selected vehicles, and by clicking on a vehicle icon in the map,displays the vehicle status (ignition on/off etc) and the job appointments and locations for the primary employee linked to that vehicle. Available actions include:
- Search for locations
- Select an address, and then find jobs at that location, or add a new client or job.
Each job has a map showing the locations of the job and of the vehicles of employees assigned to that job. All vehicles can be displayed, and employees assigned to or unassigned from the job.
Each transmission involves 2 links:
- The SmartTrade and Teletrac Navman databases communicate over the internet via APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). SmartTrade sends and/or requests data every 15 seconds.
- The Teletrac Navman database connects to the transponder in the vehicle.
Because each transmission between SmartTrade and the vehicle involves two legs working on independent cycles, updating can take up to a couple of minutes.
Assuming only one person dispatches jobs at any time, the minimum requirement is one SmartTrade Ultimate licence, costing $ 75 (plus tax) per month.
If the customer is a SmartTrade user and has SmartTrade Essential but not Ultimate, the incremental cost is $ 20 (plus tax) per month to upgrade a licence from Essential to Ultimate.
At least one, but it depends on how many people need to simultaneously use the Teletrac Navman maps in SmartTrade.
SmartTrade Essential and Ultimate licences work concurrently; any number of users can beauthorised to log in, but the number using SmartTrade at any time can’t exceed the number of licences.
