The New Checkmate 5.6 Fleet Management Software is Almost Here!
Sometime between August to October, your existing GPS to GO account will be upgraded to Checkmate 5.6. As users, you will notice some small but useful changes to the Checkmate website interface. No need to worry though, as you’ll find these changes are still in a familiar setting which you should have no problem ‘navigating‘. After all, that’ what it’s all about, right?
Here are some of the new features of Checkmate 5.6:
- You can change the default view/zoom on the live web map.
- It uses a more web-based solution, meaning it can be run on a computer without downloading an application. It can therefore be easily accessed through iMacs, iPads, iPhones and other devices.
- There will be an option to select English, French and Spanish interfaces.
- Time zones will be customizable, where you can select the time zone you wish despite your current computer system settings.
In 5.6, most functions will not need a third party component, although for a very few functions it may be needed (normally report based options that run excel).
The current geo-fencing system in 5.5 only allows a zone to be moved while retaining its size and shape. However with 5.6, it is possible to have flexibility when moving points so that if a zone requires extending or a change in shape, additional plot points can be added and sections of the zone can be extended to do so.
We’ll keep you updated on the release of Checkmate 5.6.
