GPS tracking for communities
The service can only be activated/deactivated by the user. Therefore there is no tracking of the user without their consent. The manager cannot start tracking remotely thus ensuring that users are not tracked outside of events.
Client devices should be linked to manager accounts prior to the start of an event. When the event is started the clients can start the app on their phones and their locations will be updated to the server at fixed intervals. When the event is completed the clients can stop the app on their end and tracking will end.
The most complex part of the client program is the setup and it can done in advance by a community representative. Thus, it prevents basic users from being bombarded with features that they don’t use and only cause confusion.
It is also impossible to see any location data on the client program. This ensures that customers cannot see each other’s information, which holds privacy and security benefits.
The management platform displays the positions of client devices on an interactive map. The platform can also display contact details (phone / radio call sign) as well as the time since the last update of the client device.
Posduif allows managers to see in-time updates of location data, but sometimes there is a need to check historical data. Patrols and incident investigations sometimes require that the routes that were driven be recorded.
The management platform allows managers to compile reports of historical data. The routes that were driven can be displayed on the map, recorded in a table or downloaded in MS Excel document.
