How it Works

Simply download our app onto your GPS-enabled smartphone. The app allows your phone to process data from GPS satellites to calculate its position. It then uses the mobile phone data network to transmit these GPS logs to our servers at regular intervals. The data is then accessible via a PC or laptop using our secure Spoton application. Our solution gives you:

  • Instant Status/Location Updates - See exactly where all of your people are, at any time.
  • User Friendly Interface - Simple, intuitive and easy to use tracking software.
  • Versatile Alerts Engine - A range of configurable on-screen, SMS or email alerts that actively brings important information right to you, wherever you are.
  • Track your people and vehicles using the same application - If you are using our high-end, feature-rich BOX-Tracker Insight and BOX-Tracker Eco vehicle tracking solutions, as well as Active Eye, you can view all of your data and reports in one place
