All our hand-held devices have integrated GPS and GPRS. GPRS provides excellent coverage so your drivers will have no problem with ‘Black Spots’ (areas with no coverage) found on radio voice systems. With GPS you will be able to locate your driver ’s current position instantly and even plot his course using the snail-trail feature in our booking and dispatch software. Although Autocab mobile is compatible with most versions of our booking and dispatch software there is no better combination than with Ghost. Ghost will provide lightning-fast dispatch speed and an array of management features to maximise productivity and efficiency.
