Choosing the Right Technology Options

1. How many and what types of assets are you tracking?
2. What does your device need to be able to monitor?
3. What geographic coverage do you need?
4. What environmental conditions are you deploying in?
5. How do you want to install and power your device?
6. Do you require integration with other software or hardware?
7. What are your short-term and long-term fleet tracking goals?
8. What is your budget?
9. What is your timeline for deployment?
Maintenance Monitoring & Scheduling
The FLEETBridge Maintenance Module enables you to keep track of when your vehicles need maintenance, based on mileage, run-time hours or date/calendar.
Maintenance schedules are easy to create and can help you monitor vehicle use and keep track of recurring or single occurrence vehicle and safety events. You can be alerted via email about overdue or upcoming maintenance actions.
Accurate and timely information about how your vehicles are being driven can help you implement solutions to reduce wear and tear on your fleet, keep your vehicles in top shape and support workforce safety.
The FLEETBridge Maintenance Module can also be used to monitor and report the run-time hours on specialized equipment.
Integration with Software & Hardware
FLEETBridge is a technology agnostic platform – it can be integrated seamlessly with your current software solutions and existing hardware devices.
FLEETBridge can work with your existing office applications, feeding those systems with relevant and accurate data. Using our open APIs we can provide information from your devices out in the field, and make it available to you, in real-time, using your existing systems.
Benefiting From FLEETBridge
DataTrail offers location-based services to companies ranging from individuals to small and medium-sized business to large corporations. We are also happy to work with organizations that operate their fleet only part-time or seasonally.
