Masternaut's satellite-guided Dolphins provide a rugged workmate

Dolphin - Rugged PDA
1 November, 2004

Masternaut has linked up its web-based scheduling, vehicle tracking and mobile resource management service to Handheld’s Dolphin 7900 micro-computers. By connecting to Masternaut through an in-vehicle cradle, the rugged PDA-like devices become live data communication and GPS navigation terminals for use by field engineers, delivery drivers and other mobile workers.

Dolphin handhelds are the most rugged devices of their type in the world and can incorporate special digital imaging technology for capturing images and reading barcodes. Featuring Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, the devices link to Masternaut’s M-Schedule, M-OptiTime and M-Delivery despatch systems as part of a real time job booking, despatch and reporting system.

New jobs pop-up on the Dolphin’s screen with route details. With connection to onboard GPS satellite receivers, step by step navigation can be provided to the next location with added benefits such as traffic congestion avoidance. On arrival at a location, the devices can be used to collect data, images and electronic signatures, live updating central management systems and websites through Masternaut’s always-on GPRS communications.

The Dolphin 7900 is also designed as bar code scanner and can incorporate sophisticated imaging technology. The imager literally takes a digital photograph but then automatically processes components it sees such as barcodes as well as capturing signatures. This unique ID information is transmitted and matched to central service systems for applications such as consignment tracking, parts ordering and service job closure. Masternaut adds vehicle movement and timesheet data to provide a minute-by-minute log of activity for resource management to help optimise vehicle and resource utilisation and reduce operating costs.
