We are always looking for new product ideas that could bring additional value and benefits to our clients and partners. Mapon GO is one of such products that started as a rather small idea to solve certain client problems but turned into something much bigger.
Mapon GO is a task management product addition to our Mapon system. It allows you to manage and stay in control of your field workers; manage your tasks with ease and instantly dispatch and schedule jobs for your field workers; as well as easily follow status updates.
Mapon GO product can be divided in three parts:
We will dive into each of these tasks and look at the most popular use cases.
Mapon Pro and Mapon Lite are two separate products with different functionality - both of them are based on Mapon system. Mapon Pro is a complete GPS tracking and fleet management solution with many advanced features and full functionality, while Lite system is a simplified version with fewer functions - meant for individual use and smaller companies which don't need a complete fleet management solution. However, both systems are built taking into account needs of their respective target audience to create an excellent user experience and make the usage and navigation intuitive and convenient for everyone.
Here is a visual comparison of both systems showcasing their main features and differences.
Mapon Lite is a simplified version of Mapon Pro system; however, it still comes with many useful features that will be perfect for both private and business needs.
Mapon Lite features can be divided into five larger groups:
According to the World Health Organization, 1.25 million people die each year due to road traffic deaths, which comes out to about 3561 people a day. Road traffic deaths have been consistently making it to the top 10 causes of death globally.
In an industry where fleet management involves having a lot of drivers, it would be great to reduce these numbers while keeping your employees safer on the road. One way you could achieve this is by using GPS tracking along with analytical data applications. The more you know about your drivers as well as what they are doing, the more you can make smart decisions about what needs to be done to work more efficiently and safely.
How GPS can keep you safer:
Mapon mobile tracker is a convenient solution that allows you to use basic GPS tracking and Mapon system features without the need to buy additional tracking devices. It is a perfect solution for families and also for businesses who need to solve specific problems.
Mapon mobile tracker can be used in many cases, here are few of the most popular ones that use the benefits of GPS tracking:
1) See your kids’ location and find out whether they are already on their way home
2) Follow your friends and family members location during their hiking trips or competitions.
3) See whether your kid has visited hobby class or went to friends instead. Receive notifications when your kids arrive or leave school or other territory specified by you.
Mapon has developed a new report which displays historical data about all vehicles of the fleet that were in a specific location and during a specific period of time. The territory and time period can be easily customized so this report can be used for various fleet data analysis.
The solution was initially developed for Riga City Municipal Police and has many applications. The police needed a quick and easy solution that would allow them to find out whether their vehicles had done patrolling in specific areas.
Another problem was the processing of citizen complaints about police vehicles in specific locations and time without having information about police vehicle license plate.
Requirements for these problems lead to a new report in Mapon system which can be used to track down all vehicles that have been within a specific region in a specific time interval. The usage is as simple as drawing a region on a map, selecting a date/time range and reviewing which vehicles have visited this region during the specified time period.
We have big news for you! Mapon has updated its switch solution to help you manage your fleet even better. The update is designed to fit the needs of special vehicle and equipment usage management.
The update includes features which allow you to see switch usage more easily on the map either in real time or in historical data when reviewing your routes. It allows you to check the exact location and time when specific switches were turned on and off. Some of the most used examples include following the activity of:
Siren lights - reviewing the routes driven with siren on
Door opening - locations where the doors were opened
Lifting the load compartment - checking where the driver has poured out the load
Lowering of road cleaning shovels - reviewing routes which were actually cleaned
...and many other mechanical activities.
