FTRAX-GSM and FTRAX-GPS have been developed to operate independently or as a single, totally integrated application, where mobile assets can be located using either GSM and/or GPS source data. Service features, such as comprehensive geo-fencing, are available no matter which of the two tracking technologies is used. The primary difference is that GSM tracking provides "vicinity" location information, whereas GPS provides the precise location co-ordinates, but requires an installed GPS receiver inside the mobile asset.
** GSM Tracking is dependent on policy and offering of local GSM Service providers. The platform is ideally suited as a white-labeled solution for any GSM Service provider that can offer this as location-based value-add solution to corporate customers. GSM tracking is subject to privacy laws, to which the platform offers a high level of security management and audit controls. Mobile assets in such situation can be any GSM mobile phone without the need of any GPS device. The platform fully integrates precise GPS co-ordinates and GSM "vicinity" into a unique single and seamless solution.
