How does the GoldStar GPS telematics technology works?
Simple to use, cost-effective and highly scalable, GoldStar GPS combines proven GPS technology and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tools that capture real-time data at the vehicle level, then serve it up as actionable business intelligence over the cloud and onto your desktop, laptop, tablet, smart phone or other mobile device.
Real time GPS positioning
Developed by the U.S. Department of Defense, GPS (Global Positioning System) is a space-based satellite navigation system used to pinpoint the location of landmarks and vehicles, anywhere in the world. GPS satellites orbiting Earth broadcast location information to GPS devices installed, for example, in vehicles. These devices then use this information to determine their location. Special software translates this information into a format users can understand, such as maps, which track a vehicle’s movement and location.
GoldStar GPS employs licensed, certified and proven GPS technology to help dealers optimize the way they manage collateral and reduce risk. Telematics devices installed in your vehicles on the lot capture the GPS coordinates of that vehicle, then transmit those coordinates over a cellular network to you — allowing you to track the vehicle’s movement and location in real time.
Web-based access to your telematics data
Built using SaaS tools, GoldStar GPS delivers the data captured by the telematics devices installed in your vehicle over the cloud, then serves them up via intuitive web-based dashboards, interfaces and reports viewable anywhere, anytime on your desktop, laptop and even your mobile phone.
Using these web-based tools, you’ll be able to track the location and movement of vehicles in real time, see maps and street views of vehicle locations, receive alerts when a vehicle enters or leave a specific geographic boundary, receive an alert when a vehicle is stopped for an extended period of time, view vehicle histories, and remotely disable a motionless vehicle when needed. The system will also send automated payment reminders to your customers to help them stay on top of their payments.
Simply powerful real time tracking
Because GoldStar GPS uses a cloud-based model to deliver business intelligence via web-based tools, you won’t need to invest the time, resources or money in complex or expensive GPS tracking hardware or software. GoldStar GPS is simple and cost-effective. What’s more, all firmware upgrades are automatically sent over the cloud so you know your solution remains continually current with the latest features and functionality.
