4. Globe Business GPS Tracker
For businesses that involve managing several moving units on the road going to various destinations, a fleet tracking service could prove to be a valuable investment. The Globe Business GPS Tracker Service is a security solution that could tell where all your vehicles are at any given time and even take the necessary measures in case of emergencies. Once subscribed to the service, you are given access to real-time location reports through e-mail or SMS, custom tracking of people and groups within preset areas, and tracking using aliases instead of mobile numbers.
Globe offers standard and premium subscriptions for the GPS Tracker. Those who opt for the standard option will receive a report on the location of their vehicles every five minutes, while premium subscribers can go for either distance- or time-based location reports. Premium subscribers will also get additional sensors for the engine and vehicle doors, and have their pick of what Globe calls “customized services,” which include 24/7 monitoring of the entire fleet, monthly reports via e-mail, and an established protocol agreement for emergency situations and unauthorized vehicle use.
