Product Updates

Popup to categorize driver log trips

In order to ensure that in a car sharing scenario all driver logs are categorised promptly, the driver will be prompted to complete categorization before finishing his booking.

Privacy concept for fleets in electronic Logbook

For our electronic logbook, we first developed the core process of trip documentation and integrated our CarSharing Kit and the OBD-plug.

Now we are on the verge of an official market launch and have integrated a permission concept, which is necessary for fleets. Admins can neither see (1) uncategorized trips nor (2) private trips of users.

In the meantime, product flyers and prices have also been defined. fleetster customers who already have CarSharing Kits installed can activate the electronic logbook for an additional 5€ per month.

Improved Penalty Management Details

Unfortunately, fleet management does not come without parking tickets and administrative offences. Especially with large fleets, one quickly loses the overview, especially if the process is not completely mapped out.

With the feature Penalty Management, fleetster has provided admins with a clear solution that supports the recording, forwarding and status of each administrative offence.

The latest product update now also allows the mapping of additional driver information and an improved categorization of infractions.

Geotab Hardware section

A new section is now available for customers with the Geotab dongle. It provides an overview of all vehicles and devices in the company.

For customers using the https://my.geotab.com interface, they can connect their existing account through the settings section in the fleetster geotab module.

Pulldown refresh in mobile app lists

Electronic logbook, booking list and vehicle list sections all support pull down to refresh as of this update.

Procurement Management

Since the end of last year, we have been working on the functionalities of our fleet management software.

The procurement feature has now been completed as the next module in the fleet management package.

We're aiming to launch new functionalities in the fleet management area every month.

Integrated Geotab OBD and Traka key cabinet

The Traka and Geotab hardware modules are now integrated and able to share information. Vehicles equiped with the Geotab OBD plug will provide mileage and fuel information which is no longer needed when return keys into the Traka electronic key cabinet.

Electric vehicle charge options for key return

Finishing a booking with an electric vehicle now allows the driver to specify the charging state and charger type.

Upgrade of Invers Bluetooth protocol

The mobile app Bluetooth protocol for Invers communication has been rewritten from the ground up improving connection speed and reliability.

Mejora del tiempo de inicio de Android

El tiempo de inicio de la aplicación Android de fleetster se ha mejorado significativamente ajustando el protocolo de comunicación de almacenamiento cifrado.

Tipo de uso como parte del proceso de reserva de bicicletas por Internet

La reserva de una bicicleta a través de la aplicación web de fleetster permite ahora especificar el tipo de uso previsto (empresarial, privado o de servicio).

Carga de foto de perfil en la App Móvil

Ahora es posible que los usuarios suban una foto de perfil a través de la aplicación móvil.

Optimización en el rendimiento de la base de datos

Gracias a una amplia investigación y análisis, el rendimiento de la base de datos principal mejoró drásticamente sin aumentar el hardware subyacente.

Se aplicó una estrategia de indexación exhaustiva en todas las colecciones de bases de datos relevantes, basada en el uso práctico del sistema durante los últimos años. Se integraron en el diseño de la indexación patrones de crecimiento y previsiones futuras para tener en cuenta el estado futuro del sistema.

Estos ajustes permiten que la base de datos maneje un volumen de datos y clientes significativamente mayor, a la vez que proporciona un rendimiento de primera línea.

Report damages during bookings

Until now, users were only able to add damages before the start or after a booking was completed. Through our user feedback feature in the app, we learned that damage documentation during the journey is desired by our customers. Thus, users of a Car Sharing system with an installed Car Sharing Kit can report damages directly during the trip.

This improvement is active for all accounts that use the damage management feature.
