GO DIGITAL – voice control and geofencing
There is no question that the use of digital voice control assistants is multiplying every year. As a reaction to this trend, the Soloplan GmbH has extended CarLo inTOUCH to include voice control on the mobile app.
At the moment, the comprehensive telematics system CarLo inTOUCH offers numerous functions that simplify the exchange between driver and dispatcher. Not only tour status messages as well as arrival and waiting times but also documents, pictures and signatures can be transferred via the app. Drivers can also use the integrated scan function on their mobile devices to scan items during pick-up and delivery. Furthermore, the software supports all telematics functions, such as GPS positioning as well as driving and rest time management. Geofencing makes it possible to determine the actual times for arrivals at stops and departures from stops automatically based on positioning messages.
