Quartix (www.quartix.net) has become the first major telematics specialist to provide pay as you go vehicle tracking with Google Maps.
Google’s advanced mapping, satellite, terrain and hybrid views are now available with both the InfoPlus and Corporate versions of Quartix Pay As You Go.
Using Google Maps’ zoom and scroll controls to search a live tracking screen an operator can quickly trace vehicle-journey details or find the nearest vehicle to a customer.
The new mapping system, also included in Quartix’s unique email reporting facility, provides customers with direct access to maps and satellite images from locations named in journey reports.
Andy Kirk, Quartix sales and marketing director, said: “We are an innovative company and our decision to incorporate Google’s industry-leading maps is a good illustration of this. It follows on from last month’s launch of a suite of real-time performance ‘dashboard’ displays with our Corporate package.”
Eight months ago, Quartix became the UK’s first telematics company to introduce pay as you go vehicle tracking – and already 67% of its new clients are choosing this payment option.
Mr Kirk added: “Pay as you go is attracting an enormous amount of interest and without doubt customers see it as the way forward.”
Founded in 2001, Quartix has grown to become the UK’s most successful vehicle tracking service provider.
The company offers an internet-based system with a focus on service and price. More than 2000 customers currently use the service in a wide variety of sectors, including transportation, construction, site maintenance, merchandising and retail, sales, service and despatch. More than 20,000 vehicles have the system installed.
Quartix provides users with a fast, efficient, ‘point-and-click’ source of real-time information, together with a tailored e-mail reporting system. Highly-flexible, the service has the scope to meet the demands of large corporations and owner-managed businesses alike.
