Companies with vehicle fleets require documentation showing that vehicles are used for business rather than personal purposes. If they lack the proper documentation they can face stiff tax penalties.
ABAX sells a vehicle-tracking GPS device called ABAX Triplog. Triplog can trace all of a vehicle’s travels, providing proof it was used for valid company business.
ABAX needed a mapping platform to use in concert with Triplog.
Google Maps was chosen as the mapping platform for Triplog due to its accuracy and it being the most up-to-date map on the market. In addition, Google Maps APIs are more powerful and simpler to use than competing platforms.
ABAX uses the reverse geocoding feature of the Google Maps Geocoding API to determine the precise locations of vehicles for dispatching.
