World’s first 4G mobile app for transport and logistics operators

Leeds, UK:  BigChange has introduced an all-in-one 4G telematics solution for transport and logistics service operators.  Connecting drivers and fleets seamlessly to the office via the mobile Internet, the BigChange JobWatch Office App connects to the JobWatch multi-functional mobile app that runs on a rugged touchscreen mobile computer that can be used as a fixed or portable device.

JobWatch is a plug-and-go mobile solution that helps companies plan, manage and schedule their drivers and vehicles.  The solution includes everything from a rugged mobile computer, mobile communications to black box GPS vehicle tracking, Sat-Nav, work and delivery management, timesheet, expense recording and vehicle defect reporting for only £39.95 a month, the company says.

The cloud-based 4G telematics is provided as Software as a Service (SaaS), which reduces the cost of mobile computing, eliminating the need for individual expensive software packages, multiple hardware and costly systems integration, it says.

It runs on the IP54-rated BigChange 7-inch and 4-inch fixed-mount or portable computers, which incorporate built in tracking, the cloud-delivered apps enable any size of fleet operator to benefit from powerful,  labour and time saving solutions. Users simply turn on or off the specific features, enabling them to tailor the solution to fit their exact requirements.  If they want to add more apps in the future, it is a simple matter of switching them on.

“JobWatch is an ‘out of the box’ solution that covers all  areas of live reporting, GPS vehicle tracking, Sat-Nav, mobile communications as well as workflow management, timesheets, driver debrief and feedback, expenses, delivery management, stock management, and it report vehicle defects. The development helps companies improve customer service, increase billable time and eliminate paperwork in the office and on the road,” the company says.

Martin Port, chief executive, BigChange, says: “At BigChange we have revolutionised telematics by developing a fourth generation solution that delivers a multitude of mobile applications live over the Internet. With this cloud-based service, we simply install the BigChange mobile computer and our customers just choose the functions and features they wish it to use at the click of a button. There are no further integration issues as everything is delivered over the Internet direct to the in-cab computers,” says Martin Port, chief executive, BigChange.

“Our goal is to help our customers to revolutionise their businesses in these times of austerity and that means helping them become more profitable. JobWatch speeds cashflow by confirming job completion and enabling same day invoicing. It also optimises mobile worker time, enabling up to four more jobs a month to be completed and saving eight hours of admin time for each mobile worker. It will also save money by reducing fuel use by as much as 10 per cent, travel time by around 10 hours a month for each member of the mobile team and ensuring zero job failure,” says Martin Port.
