Live Location Reporting
For any fleet which is on the go, time is money and in today’s world it's possible to have next day, sometimes same day, deliveries as well as 30 minute food drop offs, therefore live location updates has never been more important. With ABAX you can access all of your fleet, whatever shape or size, with updates of their location available every 20 seconds on Google integrated maps.
As much as the world is quickly trying to change what fuels our vehicles, there are still many unhealthy contributors to running a fleet and with ABAX Driving Behaviour you can keep an eye on exact driving performance. Simply by improving driving styles can lead to less vehicle maintenance, replacement of tyres and the parts to protect the driver behind the wheel.
Historical Data & Enhanced Reporting Suite
No matter what fuel the vehicle requires, some difficult questions and situations will never go away. Some of the questions you will face are: “Where is the driver” “You didn’t drop off my parcel then” “Your driver cut me up” “Your driver was speeding”. Whilst electric vehicles have made a significant impact on the world it still requires humans to man them. With a host of historical reports that you will have access to, the ABAX reporting suite will help you to better plan, inform and decide on how your fleet runs.

Tracking when underground
Your fleet will likely find themselves travelling underground through tunnels, for example, and our vehicle tracking system continues to work seamlessly no matter where your drivers find themselves.
Vehicle tracking saves money
A vehicle tracker can help you save money over time, as you will reduce fuel consumption across your fleet and also save on maintenance and insurance costs. If you are anything like our average customer, expect to reduce your fuel bill by 18.5% by eradicating unauthorised trips, and save up to 30 minutes per employee, per day in over-reported timesheets.
What vehicles can benefit from tracking?
Our tracking units cover a wide variety of fleet vehicles to ensure every business can benefit from more efficient working. We can help you manage everything from cars to trucks, whatever industry your business resides in.
Whether you are managing a fleet of delivery drivers or tradesmen, our units can track vans wherever they are on the roads. Our units offer real-time flexibility, allowing you to quickly change routes if necessary or send your workforce to a job nearby. Mileage is also tracked, to ensure your business is compliant with HMRC requirements when it comes to claiming any miles travelled back.
Our units can also be used to recover stolen vehicles, as the GPS tracker pinpoints exactly where the vehicle is at any given moment. So, for example, should a company van within your fleet be stolen it can be located and the authorities notified.
If you have a fleet of drivers who use cars - whether that is a company car, private car or a commercial vehicle - one of our car trackers can be installed to monitor their driving and give you complete control. Our units can be installed yourself, which means you don’t need to worry about arranging timings for someone outside your business to visit and fit them.
Planning business trips becomes hassle-free when using our car trackers and you can check in where your employees are at any given time. All trips made by your fleet are logged automatically as standard, saving you and your employee’s time when it comes to calculating mileage.
For those long-haul drives, see how your fleet is doing for time with our truck tracking units. These can be installed in your trucks and left to track everything from mileage to driver behaviour. Tracking your trucks with one of our units offers an extra level of safety for your drivers on longer trips, as you can monitor their behaviour and encourage them to take breaks when necessary. You can also ensure they are taking the most fuel-efficient route, saving money at the same time.
World-class service as standard
Whatever your vehicle tracking needs, ABAX offers only the highest quality service as standard. We offer a 24/7 support line that you can call should any issues arise and speak to a real person. If there any faults with your unit, we will replace this free of charge and our lifetime warranty on all devices comes as standard.
