Challenge

Our client is the owner of a large car rental business in Australia. While their business was thriving well, they were having trouble managing the insane amounts of fleets they owned. So, they wanted us to create an IoT-based platform that could:

  • Allow them to track fleets in real-time.
  • Easily distinguish while drivers were managing fleets sincerely or not.
  • Easily find out the factors that could hamper the smooth journey of their fleets.
  • Make sure the fleet doesn’t get misplaced or delayed

While the idea sounded great, broadcasting real-time data from devices to the platform without any delay was a real challenge for us.

What Softobiz did?

To ensure that the platform we were going to create meets all challenges our client was facing and offers a reliable solution, we decorated it with various impressive features like:

  • A GPS tracker to keep track of both the business & private travels of fleets as well as the customer visits.
  • An OBD device to offer the real-time metrics of the vehicle like mileage, fuel consumption, driving behaviour, and the number of stops made.
  • Geofencing to ensure that drivers don’t drive out of location.
  • A user interface where they can view detailed reports about their fleets.

To ensure data can be quickly transferred from real-time devices to the web application, we used Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) and Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT).

The website was developed in the microservice architecture, ASP.NET, MVC, C#, Razor, JQuery, Azure IoT Hub, and SQL server – while PhoneGap was used to develop iOS and Android mobile apps.

Highlights

  • Increase the visibility of your fleets in with detailed reports about the vehicle and the user behaviour.
  • Get real-time position of your vehicle through GPS tracking.
  • Replay the activity of your vehicles in last 3 months.
  • Monitor the speed of your vehicles using Australian speed limits.
  • Monitor the behaviour of your drivers to know their driving style.
  • Get a live feed from traffic cameras around your areas.
  • Stay up to date with your fleet servicing through reminders.

Impact

Our efforts finally paid off and we were able to create Telemax which has emerged as one of the most popular real-time fleet monitoring and fleet management tools. The platform has become so famous that now it is handling more than 10, 000 devices. Many business owners have been able to successfully track and manage their fleets in real-time using just a single click.
