The Track Star AVLS Software system represents a new standard for performance and value in the fleet management software industry, and is firmly positioned as the value proposition leader in the AVL industry. The system provides users with a full-featured and unique system at a recurring operational cost that is less than half of its competitors. All of the features of the system are available to all users without the ala-carte pricing models found in other products.
PRIVATE - AFFORDABLE - FLEXIBLE - POWERFUL
Track Star AVLS is a customer-hosted and scalable GPS tracking solution that is ideally suited to fleets of all sizes. The system achieves unparalleled levels of data privacy through its unique customer-hosted architecture. It provides users with the choice of access using both thick-client and thin-client functions operating from an on-premise server and database. It provides real-time vehicle tracking using a wide variety of different devices affording users a unique level of flexibility.
Powerful features include:
- unlimited storage and retrieval of historical data
- customizable map views and sources
- customer configurable alerting and notification of vehicle activity
- user access functions to enable use of the system across the departments and agencies of an organization
- a wide breadth of reports and replay tools
- dashboarding tools
- a host of other features
Track Star AVLS offers an extremely low cost of acquisition and recurring cost of operation when compared to other systems. Additionally, Track Star does not engage in ala-carte pricing for features and capabilities of the system. The low cost of both ownership and operation provide a much faster 'Return on Investment' realization for our customers. Industry studies show that AVL-equipped fleets realize fuel savings of 25 percent on average and that AVL provides an average return of over $1,300 per vehicle annually when fuel, maintenance, efficiency and manpower cost savings are analyzed. Simply stated, the less you spend to realize these savings, the greater the ROI and the faster it accrues.
Track Star AVLS provides a clean and intuitive user interface in both the thick-client and thin-client interfaces. Shown below are examples of the thick client screen (top) and the thin client screen showing the basemap overlaid with NOAA weather information (bottom).
The unique scalability and flexibilty of the system allow users to achieve maximum efficiency and safety from the vehicle fleets that they operate. Track Star customers access their AVLS system using a web browser on smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers, or through thick-client software installed on their computers. Browsers supported by the thin client functions include Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox. By providing this access via web browser, the requirement for an "app" specific to the Operating System of the device is eliminated.
