Location Based Services / Geofencing

MobiControl's Location Services functionality provides the ability to locate, track and gather information of your GPS enabled devices, no matter where they are in the world. 

Whether you need to confirm the current location of a particular mobile device or collect historical information on the movement of a group of devices in order to analyze performance, MobiControl's Location Services can help. MobiControl's Location Services is included annually per GPS enabled device that you wish to track. Please contact the SOTI sales team ( sales@soti.net ) for more information. How does it work? The GPS receiver on mobile devices transmits location data up to the MobiControl server, where it is processed and stored. Administrators running the MobiControl Management Console can then track and locate the devices graphically on a map. Devices can be tracked and mapped in real-time, or their historical movements can be charted. Data collection settings can be modified from the Management Console to control certain aspects of how information is collected from the GPS receiver. 

Geofencing enhances Location Services by allowing you to monitor your mobile devices and the workers that use them with Geofence Alerts. With Geofencing, defined actions are executed automatically when devices enter or exit pre-specified geofenced areas. You can also retrieve the postal address of any device's current location, send driving directions to the mobile device from the helpdesk and access live traffic condition reporting.
