Bush Tracker

For many years Tour Operators in Tanzania have been operating without Fleet Management or Vehicle Tracking Systems, we cannot blame them. The Solution did not exist initially, and then the solutions which first came into the market were not designed for tour operators but mainly for cross country transporters.

A few Tour Operators tried to use these generic solutions, but they did not work due to the fact that the solution was not delivering to the specific needs of tour operators; service and support from the service providers were poor and most of them were unavailable as they were not locally based. 

This is why UTRACK AFRICA LTD, a locally based company, in operation for more than 10 years in the region, with a dedicated team and many working solutions, decided to customize a specialized solution for Tour Operators. This solution was designed to simplify the Tour Operators’ mode of operations while at the same time enhancing it by providing them with a tool that they can use from anywhere in the World.

This solution called the “BUSH TRACKER” is the most sophisticated device for real-time fleet management and security application - all this while at the same time increasing efficiency and performance.

  • The Bush Tracker is a highly customized solution directly addressing the specific challenges of a Tour operator:

Designed for harsh and rugged African conditions, the actual device is compact (21h x 60w x107lmm), does not have any external GPS or GPRS ANTENNA – they are all inbuilt, it comes with an internal memory card, inbuilt Lithium–ion backup battery & weighs only 150 grams! It is also very attractively priced over what the competition has to offer.

The system is programmed to provide updates on a near real time basis as they occur on the ground. The net effect is that the Bush Tracker puts you fully in control.

Utrack Africa has put in every effort to make the Bush Tracker a complete SOLUTION and it is one solution that not only comes with GOOGLE MAPS but also with DIGITAL VECTOR MAPS on which we have collected the unique POINTS OF INTEREST ourselves such as Park Gates, Lodges, Hotels, and other notable land marks both inside and outside the parks. This is set in such a way that when you view the maps or when you get an alert the system states the exact location of your vehicle.

This solution features the functionality to remotely disable the vehicle which is veryuseful in the event of an emergency or theft. In the unfortunate event of theft, Utrack will assist further by remotely guiding law enforcement authorities to the location of the immobilized vehicle.

Periodic mileage based updates can be sent to a preferred email address. This enables the tour operator identify and remember when the vehicle is due for service or routine maintenance.

Violation alerts are sent via email directly to the Operator complete with vehicle registration details, time and exact location (GPS Co-ordinates plus nearest Point of interest). The types of violations include Over Speeding, Night Driving, Entry into Unauthorised Zones, Tamper and many others.

This is a solution that can be used from anywhere in the world on your smart phone, laptop, notebook or Ipad (tablet) as long as you have an internet connection. You will not require the inconvenient installation of software which ties you down to your office or the computer with the software.

Utrack solutions enables the user to choose between various number of driver identification methods. (Dallas, RFID Cards, Numeric Keypard etc.) The driver identification enables to eliminate unauthorised car use by connecting one of the above methods to the immobilizer. Moreover, the driver identification feature can be used to manage the drivers profile.

Managers can mobilize and immobilize the vehicle remotely using Utrack Software or via direct SMS command.Utrack driver behavior summary provides information on drivers performances over the course of the desired time period.

This is a Provision to create a virtual fence on the map which marks out either an authorised area or an unauthorised one. Violations can then be set on the system based on the zones that have been created to either raise alarm when the vehicle enters or departs from such a zone depending on the parameters set which could be time or location based. These zones could be the National parks or Game reserves where the Tour vehicles are scheduled to go to
