Latest Ctrack telematics solution to target vehicle sharing schemes

Using Ctrack telematics units, the solution can be used to enable remote activation and access of vehicles– using RFID cards or a smartphone app – as well as tracking and capture of journey data for accurate billing. Positioning data will also be able to be shared with mobile-or web-based booking and management tools to help customers identify the location and status of potential vehicle pool locations.

In addition, driver ID technology will allow organisations to effectively verify drivers based on approved lists and the latest member subscriptions, while driver behaviour feedback can be provided in real-time via an in-vehicle device or through a smartphone application.  

John Wisdom, managing director of Ctrack, commented: “There is an increasing demand from businesses and consumers for short-term vehicle rental, where occasional use or access to a different vehicle type is temporarily required. However, there are clear difficulties in terms of how best to coordinate the availability, access and usage of such vehicles. We have used our longstanding expertise within the telematics sector to develop a solution that overcomes some of the challenges faced by vehicle sharing schemes and rental businesses.”
