Quartix has become the first major telematics specialist to provide pay as you go vehicle tracking with Google Maps.
Google’s advanced mapping, satellite, terrain and hybrid views are now available with both the InfoPlus and Corporate versions of Quartix Pay As You Go.
Using Google Maps’ zoom and scroll controls to search a live tracking screen an operator can quickly trace vehicle-journey details or find the nearest vehicle to a customer.
The new mapping system, also included in Quartix’s unique email reporting facility, provides customers with direct access to maps and satellite images from locations named in journey reports.
Andy Walters, Quartix managing director, said: "We are an innovative company and our decision to incorporate Google’s industry-leading maps is a good illustration of this. It follows on from the launch of a suite of real-time performance ‘dashboard’ displays with our Corporate package."
Last year, Quartix (www.quartix.net) became the UK’s first telematics company to introduce pay as you go vehicle tracking – and already 50% of its new clients are choosing this payment option.
