Graham Wood 05/17/2019 Vehicle Management

If you’re in the fleet management business and are scouring the web for better ways to track your vehicle, then look no further.

That’s right, we’ve got you covered with Veturilo, the truly smart way to track your vehicle. We know, “smart” is an overused, even cliched, word to use these days in tech. But hear us out. This post focuses on the really practical side of “smart”.

We’re talking utility buttons which are designed to make your fleet management easier than ever. So without further ado, let’s have a look at what these are.

Track your vehicle better using our utility buttons

If you want to get the best out of your vehicle and/or your fleet of vehicles, it goes without saying that you need a solution with a comprehensive set of features and characteristics. And Veturilo has exactly that. One of the key points as we see it, is the use of utility buttons. Or if you like, the “bread and butter” of its value proposition.

Here’s a look at the key utility button functions and how they can help you track your vehicle better:

Freeze or Auto-refresh current location on map

With the refresh button you have two options concerning what you see on map view.

The first one is the choice to manually control how you update data on your screen. And how’s that? You just press refresh button every time you need to see updated data - i.e. your vehicle’s current location. This way you can keep a previous instance on your screen in order to examine it more carefully. It’s like freezing your screen so it’s not updated. Why is this useful?

How about these scenarios:

  • When one of your vehicles is close to one of your customers' location or any target-location and you need to direct them towards that customer.
  • Or when one of your new drivers is trying to orient themselves and/or find a specific address. While the vehicle is moving in the area you can freeze time (and perhaps pretend you’re in a DeLorean with Marty and Doc) and give more precise directions.
  • Also, when you’re busy talking on the phone and you need to preserve the previous spot on the map, for any reason that is useful to you.

Alternatively, you can enable auto-refresh of your map view and get new data at frequent intervals. Let’s say every 60 seconds. This way you don’t have to worry whether your data is updated. You just have the latest view of your vehicles position on your screen (mark or spot on map).

Share location

This feature enables you to send your car’s current location along with your driver’s name to other drivers or to anyone who’ll need it. You just press the share button. A URL with the vehicle’s coordinates on Google maps goes to the recipient, making it possible for them to navigate with his/her GPS and locate your target vehicle.

Sample message received:

Current location of: [MYVEHICLE]
Driver's name: [MYDRIVER]

Take a screenshot and save current map view

Screenshots are not just for saving memes or conversations when you have Veturilo. Our screenshot button is very useful when you need save the current view of your vehicles on the map. Let’s say that there is an unpredictable incident. You simply take a screenshot and save important views for your log or to further process them. Data depicted on screenshots are the following: Driver & Vehicle name, current location on map, fuel and battery levels.

Stop wondering, start tracking

As you can see, our utility buttons pack more punch than Batman’s utility belt. Well, maybe that’s just us getting a little over-excited. While the caped crusader may have a bit more up his sleeve on the gadget front, Veturilo’s utility buttons are certainly a great way to help you track your vehicle or fleet or vehicles more smartly.
