Companies that make their profit by delivering goods need to move them from location to location in the most efficient, economical way. This means that employers must make sure that there are no inefficient practices that take place.
A SkyEye GPS solution for delivery-oriented companies can be used for a variety of purposes. Devices can be installed in delivery vehicles to track them from location to location. They can also be temporarily installed on high priority parcels for maximum security and assurance for a delivery company.
Every tracking device can be associated with customized properties and information that can be easily input and updated on the SkyEye GPS platform. In addition, customized alerts can be generated based on location in relation to customizable geofences or pinpoint locations. There are also a variety of devices integrated on the platform for the management of anything from large vehicles to small packages.
Delivery services require a great amount of organization, planning and correct execution. By using Delivery solution from SkyEye GPS, delivery managers can always be aware of the location of their assets. Delivery vehicles such as trucks, cars and even a scooter or bicycle can be tracked with one of the many dedicated GPS devices that SkyEye GPS offers.
Sensors for fuel, door opening and closing, RFID and motion can all be attached to the external inputs and outputs of many of these devices for increased management and security. In addition to monitoring vehicles, small battery powered GPS devices can also be attached to important items of delivery for security purposes. A simple harness can be attached to these packages and even be set up to sound an alert if removed from the package.
