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.

Position Logic GPS tracking software Review

Position Logic is a full featured technology company which offers a host of software options as well as hardware solutions for those looking to track their assets, and also for those interested in stating a GPS tracking business. This is accomplished by configuring a white-label software platform which allows business owners to brand the platform and sell their solution to clients for a monthly charge.

There are two different ways to approach the Position Logic platform when looking to start a GPS tracking business or manage your current fleet of vehicles. The first is a completely hosted solution which offers a completely turn-key experience for its users. This means that Position Logic will maintain, upgrade and repair the servers as necessary to ensure maximum uptime for its clients. This is a great place to start for those who are less technologically savvy, or those who just don’t want to deal with having a third party host their solution. The second option is completely self-hosted and requires you to have your own server to run the platform on. This can be good for large businesses that want the security of hosting their tracking solution in house and having their IT team handle any issues or upgrades.

Position Logic software interface

When looking at the actual end-user interface, Position Logic seems to have one of the more advanced and polished looking platforms on the market, similar to the Navixy platform. The software is easy to navigate and has a host of different reports and custom alerts available. There are also multiple layers on the map which can be manipulated, and the ability to track routes and dispatch vehicles as well. Another thing to be mentioned is how customizable this platform is. For those looking to start a GPS tracking business, or fleet managers in specific industries, the platform can be tailored to industry-specific needs.

Visirun GPS tracking software review

Visirun is a full features GPS tracking company which provides advanced GPS tracking solutions to it’s customers. It should also be noted that Visirun is a division of Fleetmatics, which is also another major player in the fleet telematics game. The focus of Visirun is mainly on larger sized corporate fleets, and provides a host of advanced solutions for their demands.

When looking at the capabilities of the Visirun platform, on thing that really stands out is the abundance of features which are available. There is even an option to view the tachometer of each vehicle in the fleet. This feature is not used by many providers in the industry and can provide fleet managers in depth insight into the use of their vehicles. There is also the option to monitor additional peripherals such as fuel tanks, temperatures and more.

The Visirun platform is completely web-based and also available in the form of a mobile application for the convenience of the end-user. At times however, it can be somewhat difficult to navigate the interface when compared to platforms with similar functionality such as Navixy. With that being said, the software is still manageable and does provide the advanced functionality that larger fleets may require. There are also a host of reporting and alerting options available, all of which seem to be quite standard in the industry today. No surprises in that department.

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.
