Desmond van Kooten, Sales Director at GPS-Buddy explains: “We have a broad portfolio of solutions for tracking, among others, materials and vehicles.

Het GPS-Buddy XL system offers clients the possibility of customising the route regsitration functionality to meet the needs of clients with specific solutions. The GPS-Buddy Basic is a low-end, built-in system that offers a more permanent solution when compared to the QBD connector. In addition, the Basic unit is also a viable solution for motorcycles. This way, we can offer mobility managers and fleet managers the option of being able to monitor and manage all kinds of means of transport within an environment.”

GPS-Buddy, the trendsetter in the area of fleet and asset management, introduces its new vehicle tracking system during Transport Complete trade fair in Hardenberg, the Netherlands. This low-end system bases on an OBD II connector is quick an easy to install in any vehicle. Measuring 6.7 cm x 5 cm, the system is also quite manageable. The smaller size combined with the ease of installation ensures that this system is ideally suited for companies with a rapidly changing fleet. The OBD system offers a real solution also for tracking random, incidental vehicle rides, such as test-drives.

Desmond van Kooten, GBP-Buddy Sales Director explains: “The mobility market is changing. With big shortage in drivers and pressure on the current road network, the transport sector is becoming increasingly inventive. To avoid driving ‘empty’ as much as possible and to compensate for a capacity shortage, a drive or a freight may vey well be outsourced to a third party. With an OBD II connector, this drive or freight can still be tracked quickly. In addition, the system can also easily be implemented when lease cars or replacement transport is used.”

The real-time drive information is visible via the GPS-Buddy web portal, the Studio environment and the GPS-Buddy apps.
