Season's Greetings and Happy New Year 2018
Looking back at 2017 it has been a fast paced and exciting year for us at Pointguard, we hope that you have had the same! We have increased our business in the Middle East and have sent out new iToplights to as different places as Aruba, Iceland and Australia, to name a few. We have integrated our products with other smart solutions for the taxi industry like Cabman MDTs, TaxiID and Taxi Butler. We have focused a lot at digitalization, both internally and to create new smart products:
New, Integrated Backend Systems
During the year we have started using two new integrated inventory management and ERP systems. We are also doing final tests of a fully integrated web shop. These new systems allow us to work more efficiently and to provide better service for our customers.
Pointguard Cloud Platform and Apps
We have now come a long way with the development of Pointguard's Cloud Platform that will enable features like smart tracking, statistics, maintenance and configuration of our products, starting with the iToplights. We have also developed new iOS/Android apps for the iToplights with improved usability, design, lots of new functionality and integration with the cloud platform.
New Online Camera System for Fleets
We are doing tests of our new iFleetcam cloud camera solution. Apart from higher image quality and support for HD video the new system also supports real time fleet tracking, driver behavior analysis and more.
Mobile Sensor Platform for Air Quality and more
Together with our partner, Upwis, we have developed a new, mobile, sensor platform: iFleetsense to be integrated with, or used together with Pointguard's iToplight roof signs. This platform can be used for measuring air quality and will let vehicle fleets be part of the solution instead of the problem in future smart cities.
Thanks for 2017 and looking forward to 2018
We are very grateful for all the exciting projects, good cooperation and collaborations we have had with our customers, partners and suppliers during 2017. We hope that 2018 will be at least as fun and exciting as 2017 and that we will bring more added value to the taxi business together. Now we would finally like to wish you all:
Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year 2018!
