5. What is the Fleet Manager Web Portal?
MineFleetLite™ solution is designed for commercial fleet owners and fleet managers who want to know the status of their fleet as the vehicles move from one location to another. The Fleet Manager Web Portal offers a web-based account that provides dash boards, vehicle tracking information, trip data, driver behavior data, vehicle maintenance reminders, recall notices, and many other actionable information. If your fleet drivers have an Android or iPhone, then all you need to do is to have the drivers download the MineFleetLite™ app and install it in their phones. Once your drivers have been enrolled in MineFleetLite™ and entered your Organization ID in their app’s Settings page, driving data from their phones will automatically show up in your account. If your divers don’t use a smartphone, you can always utilize any of our other in-vehicle telematics device based product such as MineFleet OBD-II.
6. My phone’s battery seems to be draining more quickly when I drive. Is there anything I can do?
The MineFleetLiteTM app uses minimal power consumption by putting the app to “sleep” when the phone is not moving. When the app detects vehicle movement, it will wake up and use the phone’s GPS location to track the vehicle. The app provides high accuracy trip detection and will consume battery when the vehicle is in motion. We recommend keeping the phone plugged in during trips.
