About the client

Our client developed a fleet management system interface to support rental activity (short- and long-term rent of industrial equipment) as well as company’s Service&Repair divisions. The purpose of the system is to keep company’s vehicle fleet accessible, manageable and in service.

Challenge

The client needed a new solution based on a fleet management system to track its vehicles’ location around Europe and provide real time analytics that allowed a more efficient exploitaition of its valuable fleet and personnel resources and to calculate the amount of fees to be paid by different types of vehicles based on the route distance. The main challenge was to boost the system’s performance, enable a multi-tenant architecture, support program in hosted/on-premise mode and provide availability in multiple languages

Solution

Taking into account specific requirements of this project, we decided to step away from the standard MEAN stack and use postGIS/PostgreSQL to develop a solution that provides real time location status for all assets on one dashboard, with full fleet metrics, maintenance scheduling, instant alerts and reports. Eliftech’s solution included creation of internationalization mechanism, geofence, alarm notification,dashboard and security modules. Routing module implemented calculaton of fees. We improved performance by using server side instead of client side paging. We optimized API to reduce the amount of requests to the database and optimized the client by reducing the amount of requests to API. The project architecture was created to support two deployment types: on-premise and hosted app and we implemented a multitenance architecture.

Results

The implementation of our solution allowed the client to significantly lower the costs and improve effectiveness of operations: reduce unauthorized usage of the vehicles, improve the route efficiency and fleet productivity and minimize fuel consumption.
