Rotor for the Service Industry enables businesses to track assets of interest including vehicles, packages and persons. Know where your vehicles are at any moment, know their speed, route and history.
Track assets of interest on a map from anywhere in the world. These could be your trucks, cars or field workers. Rotor not only enables you to know where they are, the user at the other end can send embedded messages and you can track their speed at each beacon point. You can track as many Rotor enabled devices (called “Associates”) as you have in your asset base.
To do this, Rotor consists of two elements:
1) A background beacon function on your iPad or iPhone;
2) A website for tracking your beacon transmitted coordinates.
Rotor requires an iPad running iOS 4.2 or an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 and iOS 4.0 or newer with background capability.
Tracking is made possible by Rotor’s beacon function which can transmit a message and coordinates to the GeodeMe website on a continuous basis once enabled. The beacon can be set in one-minute increments from 5 to 60 minutes. Once configured, you can turn the beacon function on or off by pressing the blue “Rotor Beacon” button at the bottom middle of the tool bar.
Before using Rotor you should go the Rotor Website and set up a free Beacon account. You can do this by going to www.geodeme.com
The Website is where you would go to track your iPad or iPhone or the asset associated with the iPad/iPhone from it’s list of built in tracking and mapping functions.
Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. To reduce battery consumption you can plug your rotor equipped iPad/iPhone into a vehicle charger while in tracking mode.
