GPS Rollout

Fri, November 10, 2017

Last month Armourguard sought to roll out our new Cartrack GPS units across 230 of our Cash and Patrol vehicles nationwide. Our previous technology became outdated and the cost to upgrade it was uneconomical.

With Cartrack we were able to bring all of our GPS units into one platform at a much more competitive pricing structure. With Cartrack came richer reporting features including being able to report on the driving behaviour of our staff including:

  • Monitoring of speed in any speed zone (a new feature for us)
  • Heavy acceleration
  • Braking and G-Force giving us the visibility on how our drivers are using our vehicles both from a safety and cost perspective

Cartrack also has a specialised welfare module that has been downloaded into our National Welfare and Dispatch Centre, which alerts welfare operators of a duress situation by highlighting the vehicle on our monitoring screens and alerting the operator via a siren. This function is specifically an important tool for our cash business when we are transporting high value items.

Cartrack also has mobile tracking devices which are being used to track consignments in the event of a robbery.

The upgrade of our technology to Cartrack allows us to better manage the safety of our staff and the valuables of our clients.
