Masternaut fleet tracking for Sentinel

Masternaut : 13 August, 2007  (Application Story)
Internet accessible GPS vehicle tracking system provides for real time route changes and navigation.
Sentinel, industry leaders in lightning protection and earthing services, is using an advanced web-based fleet tracking and resource management service from Masternaut. The Masternaut service enables managers at the company's headquarters to monitor the movement of the team of field-based engineers in real time via an easy to use web interface. This service provides vital information to help improve the safety and security of both drivers and vehicles.

Sentinel specialise in the design, installation and maintenance of lightning protection and earthing services nationwide for a wide variety of clients including Heathrow Airport, English Heritage, Network Rail and British Nuclear Fuels Limited.

Masternaut uses GPS to establish the exact location of each vehicle, which is continually transmitted via GPRS and then displayed in real time via the Internet. This information can then be accessed via any web enabled PC enabling Sentinel to monitor the movement of a specific vehicle or view the location of the entire fleet at a given point in time. Masternaut also provides the ability to create and edit driving routes and real time navigation information.

"Using Masternaut I know where each of my vehicles is at any given point in time, this information enables me to react quickly if required." Said Steve Shipman, Logistics Manager, he continued "Our work is undertaken in the field by lone workers, most of it involves climbing and some of our client sites are remote. Knowing where each vehicle is and how long it has been there enables me to keep an eye on the team."

Sentinel's field-based engineers are highly trained and fully qualified and offer a full range of services from initial site survey through to system installation and ongoing annual testing and maintenance. The company is proud of and strives to maintain a high level of health and safety for its staff with all fitters registered with a national scheme and receiving ongoing training.

The Masternaut System also provides a range of other features that may benefit the company in the future including job scheduling, real time navigation information and driver management services. The system can also create customised reports for payroll, human resources and performance monitoring.
