Effective fleet management and vehicle tracking services provide several advantages, such as a reduced carbon footprint, operational costs and fuel consumption; less wear and maintenance; fewer accident risks and increased safety.
Large enterprise companies that cover a vast area, own thousands of vehicles, and are responsible for a huge number of drivers across several states or even different countries, have a range of unique challenges when it comes to fleet management services.Challenges faced by enterprise fleet managers
- Avoiding information overload
- Integrating fleet data into existing software systems
- Making sure all assets are fully utilised
- Fixing small problems fast
- Managing a geographically-dispersed team
- Finding specific fleet information quickly
- Software systems that are scalable and able to handle rapid growth
- Controlling unauthorised use of company assets
Typical information and reporting of Fleet Tracking includes:
- Trip detail (driver, fuel used, distance driven, locations visited, routes, speed, etc.)

If you want to effect tracking and recovery, and facilitate immediate response to driver emergencies, contact Hyper Auto today.
Vehicle Tracking and Tracking Devices
Our mobile Fleet Tracking and vehicle management software solution offers a wide range of frontline technology and innovative solutions, including MiX Telematics Africa’s best of breed vehicle tracking technology. With multiple care tracking devices and vehicle tracking options, you can pin-point the exact location of your vehicles, replay routes and analyse trips from anywhere in the world via the internet or your mobile phone.
Our vehicle tracking systems include:Matrix MX1 Vehicle Tracking Device
Designed primarily as a theft recovery unit, the Matrix MX1 unit does not provide any early-warning functionality and the activation of a recovery process following a theft, requires a telephone call to the National Operations Centre.
The Matrix MX1 car tracking device may be the entry-level model of the Hyper Auto products, but it still leaps the bounds ahead of its industry equivalent and comes packed with unique features including:FastTrac
Everyone would agree that in an emergency situation, time is of the essence. This is where FastTrac comes in, enabling us to position stolen vehicle within 30 seconds. We do this by accessing the extensive cell phone networks to track and locate vehicles. Unlike other major tracking companies, our vehicle tracking devices can remotely locate a vehicle even if it’s stationary.X-Ray Vision
What happens when a stolen vehicle is taken to a covered area like a warehouse, transport container, or underground parking garage where standard radio frequency technology detection is ineffective? With the Matrix MX1 care tracking device you don’t need to worry because we have X-Ray Vision. Our unique use of the cellular networks allows us to triangulate a vehicles position, even if it is parked underground.Battery Back-Up
Each Matrix tracking system is fitted with its own back-up battery. When a vehicle battery is disconnected or runs flat, the back-up battery facilitates tracking and recovery.Matrix MX2 Vehicle Tracking Device
While having all the benefits and advantages of the Matrix MX1 unit, the matrix MX2 unit has many more features, not least of which is its early-warning functionality. This means that if your vehicle is stolen we will probably know about it before you do.
Other really smart features incorporated in the Matrix MX2 tracking systems are:Ignition Tamper Alarm
Your Matrix MX2 vehicle tracker will notify the support centre as soon as an unauthorised party starts your car or tampers with the ignition.Optional Panic Button
This optional feature allows you to transmit a silent distress signal to Hyper Auto by pressing a well hidden button, at no additional cost with initial installation.Internet tracking
Internet tracking allows you to find out where your vehicle and loved ones are any time of the day or night. With the Matrix MX2 or MX3 vehicle tracking systems, all you need is a computer and internet connection. Activating your Internet Tracking requires a simple online registration process. Thereafter you will be able to position your vehicle or view its last 10 positions.Matrix MX3 Vehicle Tracking Device
The Matrix MX3 tracking device combines all the features of the Matrix MX1 and MX2 tracking devices, as well as adding extra personal safety features. The Matrix MX3 vehicle tracker is our most advanced consumer tracking unit and is often used as the benchmark for tracking systems in the industry. Combining traditional car tracking features with advanced personal safety and convenience features could make the matrix MX3 unit a lifesaver in many instances.
The Matrix MX3 car tracking system also features:PinPoint
The use of GPS technology gives us the ability to get a very accurate (PinPoint) position on your vehicle. In a life-threatening situation, this accurate position may prove to be great value to save a life.Crash Alert
Crash Alert is the simple greatest reason why you should get a Matrix MX3 unit fitted in your car. This ground breaking technology with the corresponding support services are unique to the Matrix MX3 vehicle tracking device and are light years ahead of any other tracking unit.
Crash Alert will act as your guardian in a potentially life-threatening situation. In the event of a potentially serious accident an impact sensor will instantly trigger an alarm. The alarm, which contains your GPS PinPoint accurate location, will be sent directly to our SOS partner. This seamless process is fully automated and makes it incredibly easy for emergency services to dispatch medical assistance directly to the scene very quickly.
The Matrix MX3 tracking device was designed as a personal safety unit and with features such as crash alert; it has the capacity to “speak for you when you can’t”.Roadside Assistance
In the unfortunate event of encountering any form of breakdown of your vehicle on the road, you can be assured that you will not be in distress for long. Just one phone call to Hyper Auto will enable us to send you the necessary roadside assistance required and with our PinPoint technology we will know your exact location, ensuring efficient and direct assistance. Roadside assistance is only available with the Matrix MX3 car tracking device.Driver Identification Disc (DID)
The DID is a remote system that provides an early warning when the remote and vehicle is separated – activated when the vehicle starts moving.NoGo-Zones
It is a well-known fact that there are certain high-risk areas in South Africa. We call these areas “NoGo-Zones”. If your vehicle, fitted with a Matrix MX3 unit, enters a NoGo-Zone, Matrix MiX Telematics will receive a signal. After confirming the status of your vehicle, they can immediately start with the recovery process if required.
Sometimes people only realise their vehicle has been stolen long after it has happened. Even if you are not aware of it, you will have peace of mind that the NoGo-Zone feature will serve as an additional early alert.Logbook
Whether for the purpose of annual tax claims or monthly evaluation of business travel, what could be easier than generating an electronic logbook as you drive? Once set up, with your vehicle tracking system you can have a Logbook generated at the press of a button. The Logbook will contain the date, location and distance per trip, which can then either automatically or manually be identified as a business or private trip. The logbook requires a remote at an additional charge.Service Notification
Use this feature to register your vehicle at the Hyper Auto approved vehicle service centre of your choice. When your vehicle trackers inform us that your vehicle is approaching a service interval, we will automatically notify the service centre, who will in turn contact you directly to set up a service appointment. This way you do not have to worry about missing a service interval and affecting your vehicle warranty.Stolen Vehicle Recovery
