“When a shipment does not arrive on schedule, our customers are able to find out where it is and through further inquiry, why it’s been delayed. Increasingly, FreightWatch customers use FSNtracks for supply chain visibility and resource planning"
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 11, 2010
FreightWatch Security Net (FSN), a leading provider of covert GPS tracking solutions, today announced the launch of a new version of FSNtracks, its web-based GPS tracking platform that allows for 24/7/365 location visibility of valuable assets, designed with resellers and systems integrators in mind.
With FSNtracks, FSN customers and resellers of FSN products and services can covertly monitor the movement of high-value assets from any online PC. Using state-of-the-art assisted-GPS tracking devices from FSN, the FSNtracks platform collects real-time location and sensor data and presents it live through a secure Web browser. The new platform adds features to help owners of high value assets gain fast and efficient visibility into the location and condition of their assets. Significant areas of enhancement include overall platform speed and agility, real-time location data and status alerts, as well as an intuitive user interface. Plus, FSNtracks can be integrated via API (application program interface) with other tracking systems used for transportation fleet management and enterprise mobile asset inventory management. The FSNtracks system can also be private labeled by resellers desiring a seamless branding experience.
FSNtracks features Google Maps technology that delivers high-quality, worldwide map data. By integrating with this popular, agile Web service, new FSNtracks users can quickly learn how to use the FreightWatch online service. The FSNtracks Google Maps integration also provides satellite and terrain map views as well as real time traffic report overlays.
The FSNtracks single, unified view allows for consolidated monitoring of multiple tracking devices--Enfora Mini-MT, Sendum PT200, FreightWatch Geo F1 and Geo F2—all on the same map. Users can command devices and monitor device battery level, cellular signal strength, temperature, and velocity from the Device View dashboard.
“When shipping valuable assets, the cargo generally travels unmonitored through unknown areas, and is subject to delays, environmental extremes, and possible tampering and theft,” said Bill Games, President of FreightWatch Security Net. “When a shipment does not arrive on schedule, our customers are able to find out where it is and through further inquiry, why it’s been delayed. Increasingly, FreightWatch customers use FSNtracks for supply chain visibility and resource planning, not just security.”
The addition of FSNtracks’ geofence technology allows end-users to setup movement business rules for both mobile and non-mobile assets, setting geographic boundaries for safe and acceptable asset travel. If the asset deviates from a pre-determined route or if it starts or stops moving, users can instantly be alerted via email or text. Notifications also alert users when a device reaches critical battery levels or temperatures. “We are excited by our platform capabilities which include enabling customers to secure remote, stationary assets, such as oil field equipment or high-dollar appliances in a home under construction,” said Games. “FSNtracks is a high performance, next generation tracking solution that enables our customers the freedom to monitor their valuable assets from afar, resting assured they will be alerted immediately if they move when they should not.”
The FSNtracks platform is designed for fast, high volume utilization. Using the latest Web services system technology, FSNtracks automatically pushes incoming device data out to the user’s web browser. There is no need to constantly refresh your browser to see the latest updates. When an asset protected by an FSN tracking device is lost or stolen, an FSNtracks operator can quickly command the tracking unit to report its position as frequently as every 30 seconds.
Availability: FSN customers, resellers, and system integrators can configure customized solutions today by selecting the tracking devices and service plans that meet their needs.
