Software enhances location information for fleets

October 6, 2011 By    

Roadnet Technologies Inc.’s Geotuning is a productivity-enhancing tool that improves the accuracy of location information for transportation fleet owners. This process leads to improvements in operational efficiency while also reducing fuel expenses and carbon emissions, the company says. Geotuning is configured as a combination of processes that captures large pools of street addresses, geocodes them and systematically refines the geocodes using automatic and manual methodology. The direct benefit and result to fleet operators is improved leniency and the expansion of the arrival/departure zone at each delivery and service location, which places less direct responsibility on the drivers and mobile workers. This, in turn, improves overall accuracy and productivity performances while saving energy resources, the company says. Geotuning is composed of tools that cumulatively provide significant advantages to fleet operators. The first is a geocoder, which is composed of an automatic system that identifies exactly where the product is scheduled for delivery or the service to be performed. The second tool is an analyzer, which analyzes geocodes for cancelled stops and completed stops within a user-configurable distance. The third component enables the user to review stops relative to locations and GPS pings to fine-tune the geocode or arrival/departure radius, which is also completely configurable.
