Topic: Nearest Units Showing Geofences - Wialon Hosting
Currently when you use the Tools/Address Search feature, any geofence that the address is in, shows up in the list. This is a very handy tool. When you use Nearest Units and do an address search, to see which vehicle is closest, geofences do not show up. This would be very helpful to have listed here.
Here is the use case.
Service clients use geofences for service or delivery areas. When dispatch get's an ad-hoc call, emergency call, etc, they want to search to see which vehicle to send to the call. Right now they can see which vehicle is closest, however they don't know which delivery zone they vehicle belongs to. Essentially they could be assigning the wrong vehicle to the call without knowing it.
This very simple addition would alleviate that problem all together.
Who will use the requested functionality?
We are entertaining a new client which has 400 vehicles presently. They do not have this functionality with their existing provider either. If we had it, we would win this account for sure. I can share my prospect's information privately if you'd like to speak to them about it.
