Chennai, Nov 29 (UNI) Leading telecommunication company Dhanus Technologies today launched advanced vehicle tracking service 'Flee Trac' for BPO's and tourist operators, who engage vehicles for transportation of goods and people with a total investment of Rs 100 crore.
Dhanus Technologies Chairman A D Sudhindra told newspersons here that 'Flee Trac' was a 'high-tech asset tracking device' for 'remote monitoring' and tracking of vehicles to increase fleet productivity and reduce fleet costs, while providing connectivity, through voice and data communication, with the vehicle drivers anywhere in the country.

Explaining the unique features of the product, Mr Sudhindra said the product had many utilities, including fuel bar alert, panic button alert and geo-fencing.
Other features included multi-windows tracking system monitoring region or area-wise, provided historical warnings and trace utility, provisions for job assignment to multiple units, GUI based with very little need for data entry, uses common RDBMS database system for synchronisation, accident analysis system to provide details of the vehicle in motion seconds after accident and close monitoring on speed driving, he said.
