With today's abundance of fleet management solution providers, how do you choose the right one
A vehicle tracking system is a complete solution for maintaining, monitoring and managing your vehicles. A complete vehicle tracking software consists of a GPS tracking device, server, and monitoring software. A Vehicle Management GPS device is installed in vehicles and integrated with the software, which would show you the real-time data of the vehicle.
Tracking system can be categorized into active tracking and passive tracking. Active vehicle tracking system tracks the vehicle in real-time and shows you real-time data into your software but a passive vehicle tracking system would collect and store all the data into the device and later with the software you would be able to see the complete data.
Being the best vehicle tracking software and fleet management software in India, fleetx provides both active and passive tracking. Mostly it gives you real-time data of your vehicles and works as an active vehicle GPS tracker system but when the device goes offline in the low network area it switches itself into passive tracking system and stores all the data offline in the device and once the device is in the network range then it would give you the complete vehicle data.

Vehicle tracking device is always installed in a vehicle and it captures the GPS location and also other data from an engine control unit (ECU) such as fuel consumption, mileage, DTCs, engine temperature, idling, etc.
Tracking server securely stores the data from the tracker into the servers and gives the data whenever the user demands it.
User Interface It is where users can see the actual data like fuel consumption, mileage, real-time location, routes, vehicle running speed, vehicle trips history, various alerts, vehicle stoppages, driving behavior, and various reports. The software shows you the complete details related to your vehicles and their trips.
