Our JourneyWatch vehicle tracking solution delivers miles more value than competing systems in the market. Far beyond just vehicle location and a ‘dot on a map’, JourneyWatch provides a rich inbuilt CRM system, capturing all customer and client data in a single and secure place. In addition integrated fleet management ensures quick, easy and robust management of the coach fleet, including defect reporting and tracking of maintenance. JourneyWatch also includes a comprehensive ‘driver productivity app’ at no extra cost. The app compliments the GPS Vehicle Tracking system. Running on any Android smartphone, the app manages timesheets, logs and photographs expenses as they are incurred and includes two way messaging with the back office. To support Health and Safety and the management of the fleet, the App provides a daily driver behaviour de-brief, taking into account GPS vehicle tracking data including harsh braking, acceleration, cornering and engine idling. The daily driver check is proving invaluable for our coach customers. There’s no more pink slips to manage and file – the driver simply carries out the check on the JourneyWatch mobile app, logging any defects as they go. Logged defects are automatically brought to the attention of management in the back-office, ensuring everything is managed to resolution.

Those coach operators opting for our all-in-one Mobile Workforce Management system JobWatch get the added benefits of full paperless planning, scheduling and job dispatch. Coach drivers receive their job information and updates in-real time on the app, without needing to rely on paper notes or multiple calls to the office. Pickup and drop-off points are automatically loaded into the integrated sat-nav saving time and avoiding errors. Finally, JobWatch also includes a full finance and invoicing module, allowing you create quotations, manage operations and invoice all in one simple to use system.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand at the show.
