NexTraq Integrates GIS Mapping with GPS Fleet Tracking for the Oil and Gas Industry
Combination Gives Fleet Managers the Ability to Track and Protect Assets Remotely and Increase Productivity
“With NexTraq’s Web Services offering, we provide oil and gas customers the fleet management platform of their choice,” states Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq. “Integrating GIS mapping with GPS fleet tracking enables our customers to track their trucks and assets from hundreds of miles away, increasing driver safety and optimizing fleet operations.”
With the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform, oil and gas fleet managers can upload and view points of interest in relation to trucks, including up-front investments such as pumpjacks, well heads, depots and tank yards. The NexTraq Web Services offering takes the technology to the next level by giving managers the ability to interoperate the fleet tracking technology with GIS maps and overlay GIS data.
Map layering technology gives managers the ability to set up accurate geofences and zones to report on time arrivals and mileage in and out of a zone. By creating these zones, customers can be instantly notified when an operating procedure is breached. In fact, one NexTraq customer that integrated its GIS mapping with the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform saw a 25 percent increase in driver productivity. In addition, the integration leverages real-time tracking data to automate time-consuming manual processes.
