The software range includes Limousine Manager, Tow Manager (interfacing to RACQ, NRMA and RACV), Courier Manager, Fleet manager, Waste Manager, Trunk Radio Interface and Telemetry Auto Download System.
Limousine Manager, Tow Manager, Fleet Manager, Waste Manager and Courier Manager are programs that manage the vehicle fleet by real time job and fleet tracking, data despatching, job searching, providing job status history, use of internet for job bookings by customers, logging of vehicle movements. Major towing contractors in Queensland and Victoria use Tow Manager. The interface between the relevant towing authority (eg RACQ or RACV) allows for the jobs to be automatically sent to the contractor and then data despatched by the contractor (via two-way radio) to the tow truck. This provides a real time transfer of jobs and status codes between the contractor and the authority. Ready Towing a Brisbane based company has a fleet of 70 Tow trucks whose movements are tracked and logged by Tow Manager.
Trunk Radio Interface provides a solution for Queensland State Government Security Department to monitor the movements of security guards. It raises alarms in the case of man down and interfaces with the alarm monitoring system.
Telemetry Auto Download System is used by Queensland Main Roads Department and State Roads Departments including Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia to automatically download and log data from Telemetry units.
