Jan. 19, 2010 - PRLog -- Innovative map icons that change colour with a vehicle’s speed have been added to Quartix Pay As You Go, the popular online tracking system.

Andy Kirk, Quartix sales and marketing director, said: “With increasing emphasis on health and safety, this new feature is exactly what our customers have been asking for.

“It’s extremely easy to understand.  An operator can see by glancing at their screen whether a driver is travelling a little too fast, crawling along because of heavy traffic or for some reason has stopped completely.

“A fleet’s every vehicle is shown in real-time. It’s possible to see exactly what’s happening, and where, twenty-four hours a day.

“In addition, all historical data are held so it can be used at any time for health and safety/performance reviews. “

In April, Quartix ( became the UK’s first telematics provider to introduce pay-as-you-go, adding it to its lease-finance and outright purchase options.  Since then the company has become the UK’s first to provide PAYG with Google Maps and the first to offer a unique on-screen ‘dashboard,’ giving at-a-glance, real-time information about a fleet’s  performance.

Today, Quartix Pay As You Go accounts for 67 per cent of the company’s overall sales.

Mr Kirk  added: “This rapid rise is being driven by strong demand.

“The reason is straightforward: no-one wants to be tied to a long-term vehicle-tracking contract during a downturn. Quartix Pay-As-You-Go has proved to be just the right product at just the right time

“In 2010, thanks to innovative features such as our latest Speeding Reports, we anticipate PAYG will account for 80 per cent of sales, with lease-finance and outright purchase taking up the remaining 20 per cent.”

Quartix was founded in 2001 by four industry professionals who had a combined 80+ years (but who's counting!) experience in systems design, telemetry, embedded computing, communications and database design and implementation.

They felt that there was an opportunity for a system that made more extensive use of the tools and resources that are readily available on the Internet. Using the best in mapping systems, location databases, communications technology and Internet service providers Quartix set out to create a system that was easier to use than those on the market. This also brought the benefit of ensuring that the system would be accessible from standard browser and e-mail programs. There's no need for any changes to the user's set up, no dedicated machines, no software installation - if you have Internet access, you have everything you need.
