Matrix introduces mobile app

June 2015 News, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The latest version of the Matrix Internet Tracking app has been released and places the control in the hands and the minds of the user. With access to features like vehicle tracking, roadside and medical assistance and early warning if someone drives your vehicle without authorisation, the Matrix app provides the right information in real time.

No matter where you are; sitting at a friend’s house for a braai, attending a sports match or even lending your vehicle to a friend or family member, you will be reassured, knowing your vehicle can be monitored in real time via your smartphone or computer.

Grant Fraser, product and marketing director for Africa at MiX Telematics describes the app: “Alongside the usual GPS positioning features offered, it was important for us to include other value adds to the offering, with the end goal in mind of making the app that much more functional for the lifestyle of the mobile user.”

Some of the functionalities include; the ‘My Trips’ function (applies for MX3 customers), which allows you to select and view a description of your latest trips and mark them as either business or personal to effortlessly track fuel or maintenance claims. You can also instantaneously report your vehicle as stolen or receive roadside and medical assistance 24/7 through the app – at the click of a button.

Another great feature is the app allows users to monitor driver event information, which means things like harsh braking, harsh cornering, and severe acceleration, over speeding and battery notification is all included.

“We have also enhanced personal security features within the app, and now users will get early warning of unauthorised movement of the vehicle. This means that once the early warning is enabled and a customer has parked their vehicle, they are able to lock the car position from the app. Any unauthorised movement will result in an alarm being generated to our 24/7 national operation centre and the owner notified immediately.”

Fraser concludes: “The Matrix app is the perfect extension pack to customers who already use the Matrix Tracking device and will allow them to keep track of their or their family’s vehicles straight from their smartphone or tablet that supports iOS or Android.”

The app is available for download on Android and iOS stores.
