SIM Tracking Wallet: How to Buy Credit Pings?

Managing a fleet of vehicles, moving goods from one place to another within an agreed time period, keeping in track of the vehicle movement are daunting tasks for fleet owners.

As a fleet owner, you need to stay in contact with the driver round the clock. You need to be available any time of the day to address every issue that’s been reported to you.

Most often, the fleet owner has to connect with the driver over the call at regular intervals to stay abreast with the situation. This model is quite exhausting and stressful to conduct a business efficiently.

To alleviate the trouble of tracking the vehicle, our FleetOS application has a feature to track vehicle movement efficiently with the help of GPS or SIM-based tracking.

GPS Tracking

GPS tracking process requires you to install a GPS device in your fleet vehicle which will be synced with your FleetOS software.

Using GPS tracking, you get access to LIVE tracking of both driver and the vehicle at any time you want without having to make a call to the driver.

Note: Vamosys provides 360 degree support in GPS device installation to syncing with the FleetOS software.
SIM-based Tracking

SIM tracking, another mechanism that’s quite simple and easy, where you can access location with the help of tracking driver SIM.

This method is recommended if you are looking for cost-effective substitution for GPS. Unlike GPS tracking, you can keep track of the driver’s location at regular intervals by activating SIM tracking in the driver’s mobile and by purchasing credit pings as much as you want.

In this article, let’s see how to buy credit pings, consumed pings, and payments.
