Taxi tracking and beyond
LYNQ solves two business requirements and serves many clients in one complex airport taxi project. Find out how they did it with GpsGate & Teltonika.
Background & client needs
The taxis at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires needed a satellite tracking system. However, all 150 taxis are organized as a cooperative group, and it was difficult for the different drivers and taxi agencies agree on one GPS tracking provider.
The cooperative’s members all agreed on two requirements:
- The tracking system must be able to be turned off for individual taxis during non-working hours. Off-duty cabs should not be visible to the taxi operator at the airport. However, the off-duty cabs should always be visible to the owners.
- The pricing must be fair so that all businesses could afford it.
Using the Teltonika FMB920 devices, LYNQ was able to keep the pricing affordable. The devices offer remote updates of the controllers and excellent performance for an economical price.
With GpsGate, LYNQ created a solution that did not track off-duty vehicles. The primary functions used are the Tracking Schedule plugin and the Command Click Script plugin. LYNQ labeled vehicles ‘Visible’ and ‘Not visible’ based on whether they were on-duty. Owners could always see their vehicles, no matter what their current label. However, the taxi operator at the Ezeiza Airport could only see the ‘Visible’ on-duty vehicles.
What are the results?
LYNQ now provides a double service in their work with Ezeiza Airport taxis.
The individual taxi drivers and agencies can see their vehicles 24x7, including when they are off-duty… AND the cooperative and taxi operators have the necessary tracking for on-duty vehicles.
After implementing this solution, LYNQ has been winning new business based on the diversity in features, plugins, and equipment they provide with GpsGate and Teltonika. This allows them to differentiate themselves from the competition.
