GpsGate tracking software review
With variety of providers to choose from when looking to enter the GPS tracking market, it’s important to do your research on each provider to ensure that maximum value is provided with the solution you end up choosing. Today I’ll be reviewing GPS Gate’s hosted software solutions for those interested in tracking a fleet of vehicles, or who want to start a GPS tracking company and would like some guidance.
GPS Gate offers both self-hosted and hosted GPS server options, something which is very common throughout all industry providers. With the hosted solution, a fee is charged monthly per tracked asset. With the self-hosted option, users must purchase one license per tracked asset, this license is perpetual. Both of these options include secure encryption and a full suite of account management tools. Both of these options are great for people looking to start a GPS tracking business that provides a monitoring service to customers so they can manage their assets remotely.
The GPS Gate software is customizable and allows for the changing of map providers as well as branding for those who are starting a new GPS tracking business. There is also a mobile device friendly version of the website for ease of access on the go. The software allows for real-time GPS tracking, which gives business owners and individuals valuable insight into the usage and location of their assets. There is also a built in notification and alerts engine, which allows for custom text message or email alerts based of certain parameters such as vehicle theft, harsh driving, speeding, etc. There is also a full reporting suite for in depth analysis of fleet vehicle and asset activities. Another software add on is vehicle maintenance, this is good to have to ensure that fleet vehicles receive the proper care they need and nothing is forgotten. (more…)
GPSWOX tracking software review
GPSWOX is a full featured, hosted GPS tracking solution which helps fleet managers keep track of their vehicles, and also allows users to create their own GPS tracking business by using GPSWOX’s white-label solutions. There are also free options for those looking to track a small number of assets, or are looking to try out the system before deploying it.
There are 2 different options with the GPSWOX You can either let them take care of the hosting, or you can self-host. Both can be good options, with the hosted being the easiest one for non-technical users that would like to start a GPS tracking business or monitor their fleet. And the self-hosted option being a good choice for private fleets and enterprise accounts looking for addition security and control.
GPSWOX user interface
One thing that really stands out with the GPSWOX user interface is its usability. Everything plotted out on the screen is clear and concise, completely leaving out any confusion as to what is displayed on the screen. There are also a wide variety of custom reports and alerts to be seen in the online portal. The GPSWOX system also includes extremely easy to use geo-fencing options, and also marked points-of-interest on the map.
GPSWOX software support
Another key point to consider when looking at a GPS tracking provider, either for hosting you white-label solution or for tracking your fleet of vehicles is technical support. GPSWOX offers 24/7 365 customer service to its customers absolutely free of charge. Other providers often skimp on this, and will have limited hours of service with their technical support team. In today technology driven environment, it is extremely important to make sure there is a dedicated team available to help you at all hours, should any issue arise.
Traccar GPS tracking software review
Traccar is a self-hosted and completely free and open-source GPS tracking system. It also includes a web-interface which allows users to view and configure devices online. The server version is written in Java, and can be used across most operating systems. There is also ongoing support to continue adding new devices as they are released onto the market.
When looking more closely at Traccar, we can see that it is a complete GPS tracking server setup. Also, it should be noted that there are no hosted options available at this time, which means that those looking to use this platform must be technologically savvy, have a support team, or outsource the hosting to a third party provider. While not a total deal breaker, this is something to consider when looking to set up a private GPS tracking software. This also means that there is no direct support from the company if an issue arises, and you are reliant on you own team or a third party to maintain and upgrade your server as necessary.
Traccar software advantages
For those willing to take the plunge into a self-hosted only option, Traccar does provide some great functionality for those looking to get into the business of asset tracking. It’s user interface is easy to use, but the downfall in that is also that it’s functionality can be limited at times and leaves users wanting more. A company that I have found that seems to balance ease of use, yet still retains optimum functionality would be navixy.com. There are also some other providers such as GPS Gate which seem to come close to striking this balance in some areas, but are often priced much higher and are still somewhat frustrating to use.
