Knowing the location and status of your company vehicles is critical to the bottom line. GPS fleet tracking is often the first step for fleets to take control of their business. Estimating arrival time and improving customer service, instantly locating drivers and vehicles and, monitoring unauthorized vehicle usage and detecting out-of-route vehicles with geofencing, and minimizing idle time, can help maximize fleet efficiency and drive profits. Professional installation of GPS fleet tracking systems will increase fleet performance and get vehicles back on the road and back in business. From local businesses to nationwide enterprise fleets, Orbital is the leader in GPS fleet tracking systems installation across the United States.
Orbital has installed tens of thousands of electronic logging devices (ELD) in vehicles around the U.S. to help fleets of all sizes be compliant with federal hours of service (HOS)/ELD mandates and other regulations. Some ELD systems offer HOS calculations and driver alerts for low remaining hours, and guidance on how to maximize hours. Many ELD solutions feature driver vehicle inspection report (DVIR) capabilities, including pre- and post-trip inspections, inspection checklists, and other helpful tools. International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is another key feature in ELD systems. IFTA provides an automated and streamlined way for fleet operators to collect information about cross-state and cross-border (Canada) travel and fuel consumption of their fleet vehicles using a single tax license. Trust Orbital’s professional installation services to keep your fleet compliant with all current and future regulations.
Managing driver and vehicle safety is a concern top of fleet operators as evidenced by the explosion in the adoption of driver and road-facing camera systems over the past couple of years. Cloud-connected dashcam and in-vehicle camera systems help companies manage fleet safety risk by improving driver performance, ensuring compliance, accurately recording collision data, and reducing fraudulent insurance claims. On-demand video playback is available in minutes, so fleet managers can identify and correct driver performance before an accident occurs, provide real-time coaching, reward good driving performance, exonerate drivers in case of accident or incident, and have video evidence for any potential litigation. Orbital is trained and skilled in the optimal installation and configuration of single unit to multi-camera systems across all vehicle types and vertical markets.
Installation of trailer and asset tracking systems for trailer and shipping containers provides real-time visibility into the location and status of mobile assets and cargo. Trailer and asset tracking systems use either satellite and cellular technology, as well as on-board sensors to transmit position, to determine if the trailer door is open or closed, gauge trailer capacity, and to monitor temperature, report exceptions, and communicate the overall health of the asset. Asset trackers are battery-powered, solar-powered, or connected to a power source, and are often built to withstand extreme weather and operating conditions. The adoption of smart trailer systems is growing- trailers can now communicate with tractor drivers, back-office systems, repair and maintenance, and other stakeholders. Data analytics provide important insights to help fleets better monitor and control mobile and remote assets. Orbital is very experienced in the pinpoint placement and configuration of a wide range of asset tracking hardware and sensors to ensure that systems are operating at maximum accuracy and efficiency.
In-vehicle networks provide vital connectivity for fleets of all kinds including trucking, delivery, transit, and public safety. In-vehicle networks enable communication between onboard telematics, monitoring, and GPS systems, enable mobile Wi-Fi on school buses, and connect automatic passenger counting (APC) systems on public transit vehicles. Mobile workers, truck drivers, bus drivers, and field service technicians benefit from staying connected, and the ability to keep critical in-vehicle applications running in the event of any system failures. Orbital’s expertise in-vehicle networks, mobile Wi-Fi, and router installations help fleets ensure a consistent and reliable mobile broadband
Coast-to-Coast Nationwide Coverage
After a few years of speculation and fluctuating deadlines, 2022 will be the year that the major cellular carriers in the United States will begin to shut down their 3G networks. Network sunset dates will vary for each carrier, but once a 3G cellular network is shut down for good, on-board technology powered by 3G, and relied on by so many fleets today, will become unusable. It’s critical for fleet technology suppliers and fleet operators alike to have a migration plan in place to minimize any potential disruptions to daily fleet operations. Many fleet technology solutions providers have been working with their fleet customers to implement an upgrade plan that aligns with their customers’ specific technology requirements, budgets, and business operations.
An important component of a successful 3G migration plan of any size, is the installation process. Fleet technology suppliers and fleet operators should seek out a reliable and established installation partner that offers a full range of services, experienced field installation technicians, flexible hours, and coverage where and when they need it.
