Driver Multiview
Sometimes you just need to see what a person did, from A-Z, from beginning to end, in every part of your organisation. So, we wrote a 'multiview' plugin which aggregates all driver actions in a timeline for every part of the business. it combines a number of database tables across different applications and joins them together with the driver as the glue -  so you dont have to. We're allowing users to choose what aspects of the drivers actions to report on - our fleet team have different needs than our marketing team - so you can customise which tables you want to view. It's more than 'auditing' - we've already got that - and its designed to glue our different systems together.

For example, if a cars gone missing, or a driver's gone AWOL, this single view can help you determine when we last we're in touch with the driver, whether its by SMS, email or a phone call. It integrates with the auditing platform to show you a timeline of what exactly happened and when.

"It's useful on the rare occasions when something goes badly wrong" said Eugene, accounts manager at GoGet. "It means I can quickly get an overview of the driver's actions and figure out a timeline of events. I can customise event types by color and hide ones that are of no interest to me - I like that."

We're still adding more relationships and tables to this plugin, and it's being improved as we add new features to the system.

Our Software Testing Process - every 6 hours!

Ok folks - a boring, yet vital topic. Software testing methodology!

The most important requirements for our platform is reliability - we have over 25,000 people relying on our engine on a daily basis. For our main client, GoGet, a single days outage can mean losses in the tens of thousands of dollars. It's enough to give you gray hair!

Dispatch tool - on the road with GoGet
Our fleet team are always out and about on the road - so we thought we'd try to help them with some location enabled technology. Our new dispatch platform shows our fleet team the closest jobs to their location, and allows them to find (and work on) jobs close by from any mobile device.
