Increasing Operational Efficiency

Today’s technology allows us to collect a vast amount of data from every vehicle in your fleet.

Capturing it is one thing - creating actionable insights with it is where the real transformative value is.

Your tailored Pointer solution will provide you with:

  • Actionable insights that allow you to continually improve your business operations

  • Advanced reporting that correlates your data in an "easy to view" format

  • Expert analysis of your data

  • Improved KPI's

  • Quick drill-down tools to get to the root cause of an issue

  • Increased visibility into your operations


With Pointer, you’ll have actionable insights (and not just raw data) so that you can continually increase your operational efficiency, which in turn goes straight to your bottom line performance.

Driver Safety & Compliance

We understand that your primary concern is to provide your customers with the service they’ve entrusted you to deliver. That means transporting cargo on time, while ensuring your personnel’s safety. To get this done effectively, you need to execute on your deliverables without hindrance.

Pointer Safety and Compliance tools informs you when a driver exhibits poor driving patterns and alerts you to non-compliant hours of service.

This proactive approach enables you to:

  • Mitigate the risk that comes from damaging behaviour

  • Maintain compliance

  • Reduce costs

  • Improve service


We take things a step further too. Together with your internal fleet Safety and Efficiency Officer, we’ll engage with your HR department and help you improve your training programs and provide driver-specific actionable insights to increase the safety of your entire fleet while maintaining local regulatory compliance.

Asset Security

Keeping your customers’ assets safe, along with your drivers and vehicles, is one of the ways we measure our own performance. We’ve perfected tools that increase visibility of your fleet and the assets they carry; enabling them to consistently exceed the industry’s average recovery rates in every region we operate. In South Africa, we are accredited by VESA and PSIRA and have won several awards in recognition of our response and recovery of lost or stolen assets.

Our dedicated response centres will:

  • Locate your vehicles within meters

  • Immediately alert first responders to protect your assets and employees

  • Assist your team and drivers during and post event


Based on your needs and your customers’ profile, we’ll deploy the right asset security tools in order to mitigate the potential for robbery and theft. Additionally, in the event that theft has occurred, you’ll have the tools you need to effectively recover those stolen goods.

Fraud Mitigation

Unauthorised driving and trips, after work vehicle use and fuel theft / fraud are common issues every fleet operator must deal with. Theft and fraud of any type is costly and can substantially drain your fleet’s profitability. It occurs in almost every fleet we come into contact with.

Pointer will work with you to identify vulnerabilities in your operations, including:

  • Unauthorised vehicle use

  • Fuel sniffing / theft

  • Fraudulent fuel purchases

  • Unaligned work hours or vehicle usage


We’ll also enable you to integrate data from fuel card companies to prevent anomalies and ensure that service is provided to authorised vehicles only.

Once we’ve identified those vulnerabilities, we’ll suggest solutions that work to eliminate them and the fraud / theft they perpetuate which will have a demonstrable ROI to your department and business.
