    Am interested in the Fleet Management System where can I get more details? I’d like to know if it addresses the offline scenario where GSM coverage is poor and also if the vehicle movement icon is dynamic in realtime and the load factor before the system realtime activities and response times become sluggish….plus ability to use a custom map overlay other than GoogleMap..these are very common problems with FMS in Zimbabwe currently.
