September 27, 2012 – ROAMWORKS INTRODUCES SMART GEOFENCES AND ADDRESS SEARCH ENHANCEMENT
DUBAI, UAE – September 27, 2012 – ROAMWORKS, a pioneer in M2M software and systems integration, recently introduced several new enhancements to the ROAM platform, allowing complete control over exception-based features that support location services.
Have you ever had extenuating circumstances surrounding the activation of your geofence regions such as holiday schedules or temporary exceptions? ROAMWORKS now allows you to specify times to activate geofences, by day, by hour—even down to the minute. So if you have situations in which certain regions are permitted at some times but not others, we now provide the ability for you to flag those exceptions on a case-by-case basis. This solution weeds out unnecessary alarms and increases the efficiency of your operations. ROAMWORKS is committed to continuously enhancing your experience with our system and giving you the ability to customize our solution to suit your business.
Another new valuable enhancement to ROAM is the addition of an address search feature, called the geocoding address search and display-mapping module. You simply enter an address in order to conduct a search based on location keywords. The platform will then provide a holistic view of where the drivers are located in order to determine who is available and the most appropriate for an assignment.
“The mapping module has been a central functionality since the first days of ROAM,” explains David Hartmann, General Manager of ROAMWORKS Bonn, “in the early days, displaying location based information was a new and special feature. With the advent of Google Maps, GIS services suddenly became available free of charge. Since then, Google and other providers have constantly improved the quality of the geodata and numerous location-based value-added services have been invented. Nowadays, these services are available in almost every device.”
At ROAMWORKS, we are committed to integrating the latest innovations from the best technology sources into our platform. You can choose the best solution that fits your needs from a list of well-known providers, including Esri, Google Maps, OpenLayers and LeadDog. This new enhancement, which allows you to be more responsive, increases your operational agility and the flexibility of your business.
