The Masternaut Rapide app for iPhone provides the core functionalities of the live Masternaut service to managers on the move. It provides an essential real-time link to important operational information whenever they are away from the office.
"Apple's iPhone is gaining popularity in the business world and we are pleased to be able to offer customers a free app that will allow them to access important Masternaut information on the go. This will be very useful for transport managers and mobile service engineers," says Johann Levy, Research and Development Manager, Masternaut Three X.
Rapide makes real-time and historic vehicle information available to iPhone and iPad users. Managers can use this information to monitor the exact movement of their entire fleet, with instant updates tracked by global positioning satellites. The system can also locate and monitor individual vehicles as well as provide their movement histories. For the mobile engineer, it gives an instant view of their nearest colleagues, customer contacts and next job.
"The system is extremely fast and reactive. There is no downloading of web pages and you only download the data you need, so it is very cost effective. It gives a full map view for locating vehicles and staff at any time and provides satellite images. We believe this development to be an important tool for the future of fleet and mobile worker management," says Levy.
The company will also develop versions of Rapide for Blackberry and for Android phones.
