Tip of the Week: How to Get Wi-Fi in Your Car and Track its Whereabouts
The Internet of Things is quickly becoming a major part of today’s consumer-based industry. One of the best examples of this is the use of smart car technology. A great example of this comes from a company called Zubie, which sells a handy device meant to provide car owners with tracking analytics, access to diagnostic systems, and even the capability to connect to Wi-Fi.
The device connects to a car’s diagnostic port and includes tracking information for the road taken, speed, acceleration, braking, distance traveled, fuel efficiency, and much more. Zubie uses your car’s VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) along with the diagnostic information and mileage to provide insight as to how your car performs. Alternatively, you can use the device to keep track of where your car is at. Just think about the reassurance you will feel when your teenager asks to borrow your car for a night out. You will be able to actually know where they both are!
It’s clear that Zubie has great value for anyone wanting to get the most out of their car, but how can your business take advantage of it? To get an idea of how this, you can set up a Zubie Business account here. Submit information about your business and Zubie will take care of the rest, customizing your experience to your specific business type and size. You can even customize which notifications you get through the Zubie mobile app.
Once you’ve done this, Zubie can keep track of each individual driver’s information and deliver it to a central location for review. Additionally, Zubie creates a leaderboard to help your drivers compete and better their driving practices, record trip histories for each Zubie user, and keep specific scores of each driver on record. Furthermore, you can take a quick look at all driving activity over the past week or month, and add users and administrators as the need arises, which makes it easier to manage the vehicles used by your organization.
Regardless of how you use Zubie, it’s a great way to keep track of your vehicles and get the most out of them. How would you use Zubie to your company’s advantage?
