Learn all about the features Falcon Tracking offers.
Falcon's wide range of features accommodates all types of businesses and individuals wanting to track and analyse vehicles and their movements.
Using the high tech Falcon GPS Unit, data is sent to dedicated servers at Road Tech — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This data is processed immediately and can be viewed anywhere in the world.
Explore some of the features Falcon provides below …
Falcon gives you real-time vehicle tracking for your entire fleet. The current positions of all vehicles are overlaid on detailed Google Maps — road and satellite imagery come with all Plans.
The display can be customised to show Vehicle Registration, Fleet Number or a Description of the vehicle by each marker on the map.
Detailed information about every vehicle is sent to Falcon constantly throughout the day. This means Falcon can provide you with up-to-date information not only about a vehicle's position.
At request from the Latest Positions screen you can see the current speed, fuel level, driver*, recent events, road speed limit and geofence hits.
Utilising all the metrics gathered by the Falcon unit, the Analytics screen gives you an easy way to filter and analyse data from your vehicles.
This is the window in to viewing how your vehicles are being driven, and how your drivers are driving. From the Analytics screen bad driving habits are identified, giving you the chance to help your drivers improve their driving style and save you fuel.
Falcon provides a Vehicle and a Driver Performance Calendar to give the user a simple, quick overview of a specific vehicle or driver.
You can easily see what days a driver did not perform so well on and bring up the Journeys for that day with one click - you can then see the vehicle and route that was driven and any potential problems.
With Falcon you can create unlimited custom geofences. Using the geofence tool you can draw over the detailed Google Maps imagery to create your geofence, which will then be used to generate alerts and reports.
It's a good idea to colour-code your geofences too, anywhere the geofence is used the colour will be displayed helping you to identify them quickly.
Falcon is processing data 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With every piece of information that comes in events are fired (such as a geofence hit, or a vehicle moving outside of curfew) and picked up by either the Falcon web site, or the Road Tech Notifier.
The Road Tech Notifier is a universal application used across all of Road Tech's services, alerting you to events as they happen.
A unique feature in Falcon is the ability to compare Journeys that your vehicles have taken.
By selecting a single Journey that has taken place, Falcon will find all similar Journeys and show you them side-by-side. Using this utility you can find the optimal route giving you the best delivery times and fuel consumption.
From within Latest Positions you can set up and save custom Watch Lists.
A Watch List can be configured in a nearly unlimited number of ways; for example, to show you vehicles currently in a geofence with the engine running, or to show you vehicles inside a custom Geofence Category stopped for a defined length of time.
Each saved Watch List creates a small tab with the current count of vehicles. Selecting a tab will load the vehicles for you to see - and optionally view just those vehicles on the map.
Falcon imposes no limits on the number of users you can create, or how many can be logged in at once. Simply go to the Settings menu and add new User Accounts.
Along with User Accounts, you can create custom User Profiles, giving the ability to restrict certain parts of the system to certain users — for example, you could create a user with access only to the Latest Positions screen.
If you are a Tachomaster user you can benefit from extra features, including notification of geofence hits and the facility to see where any Tachomaster event (Drive, Work, Rest) took place on a map in the Vehicle and Driver day views.
Using Tachomaster also includes the benefit of seeing who is driving a vehicle in real-time in Falcon.
Falcon gives you the ability to set up schedules for reports, sending links to one or more people on a regular basis.
