SkyBitz, a supplier of Global Locating System trailer-tracking technology for the trucking industry, offers three product enhancements designed to heighten security and increase operational efficiencies for carriers of all sizes.
Event Notification adds an extra layer of security and accountability to the SkyBitz real-time asset-monitoring capabilities by instantly triggering an e-mail alert when it detects a situation that needs attention. Customers can program alerts for such events as when a trailer door is opened, when cargo has been added to or removed from a trailer, or when a trailer has been idle for a specified period of time. Fleets can also use the notification system to alert a customer that a trailer has been sitting for more than its contracted time and detention billing is beginning.
RouteFence, used in conjunction with Event Notification, increases security by sending instant e-mail alerts when a trailer deviates from its defined route. RouteFence enables the customer to draw a route and set the boundaries by specifying a series of points, and then monitoring where the trailer is along that route at any given time.
The third enhancement, Polygonal Landmark, enables customers to create irregularly shaped boundaries with up to 20 points to more precisely define a landmark and pinpoint the location of their trailers. This feature can also be used in tandem with Event Notification to trigger alerts on predefined events within the landmark.
Together, the three enhancements provide carriers with greater visibility to their assets at every point along their designated routes.
