How can Track My Ride help you?

  • Easy Installation: Getting started with Track My Ride is a breeze. Your team members can quickly download and install our user-friendly app from the app store on their mobile phones, regardless of whether they use Android or iOS devices.
  • Precise Tracking: Our advanced GPS technology ensures pinpoint accuracy, targeting a new location every 10 metres of movement. This provides you with detailed insights into your team’s whereabouts, allowing you to monitor their progress and identify any potential issues or delays.
  • Vehicle Association: Our mobile tracking app takes workforce management to the next level by allowing team members to choose the vehicle they are driving. This innovative feature enables you to track both individual movements and vehicle journeys separately, providing a comprehensive overview of your operations.
  • Efficient Data Upload: To optimise battery life and data usage, the app intelligently uploads the recorded locations to our secure servers when it has stored 200 points or when the phone has been stationary for 10 minutes. This ensures you have access to up-to-date information without compromising your team members’ device performance.
  • Flexible Tracking Frequency: Every business has different requirements. That’s why we offer flexible tracking frequency options, allowing users to adjust the frequency of location updates to suit their specific needs. Whether you need updates every 200 points or as often as every single point, Track My Ride has you covered.
  • Set a Tracking Schedule: You have the flexibility to set up custom tracking schedules that align perfectly with your business hours. TMR allows you to define your work hours, such as Monday to Friday 9 AM to 5 PM, and automatically start and stop mobile tracking during those specified times. Outside of your designated business hours, the tracking feature will automatically turn off, ensuring your team members’ privacy is respected and battery life is preserved when they’re off the clock.

This feature enables rapid response and support, giving you peace of mind knowing that your team is protected while out in the field.
  • Comprehensive Reporting: Track My Ride offers a powerful reporting system that allows you to analyse tracking data and gain valuable insights into your team’s performance.

  • Geofencing Capabilities: With our geofencing technology, you can set up virtual boundaries around specific locations, such as job sites, restricted areas, or customer premises. Receive instant alerts when team members enter or exit these designated geozones, helping you maintain security, compliance, and accountability across your mobile workforce.

Track My Ride allows you to set up automatic start and stop times for mobile tracking based on your specific business hours. This ensures you only track your team when necessary, respecting their privacy and maintaining trust within your organisation.
  • Battery-Friendly: We’ve designed our mobile tracking app with battery efficiency in mind. By intelligently balancing tracking frequency and battery usage, our app typically consumes only 5% of the phone’s battery per hour. This means your team members can rely on their devices throughout the day without worrying about running out of power.
