It's believed that a person uses the brain only by 10%. The situation with Wialon functionality is a bit better: most integrators exploit 20-30% of it. Mainly for transport monitoring and fuel consumption control. However, there are companies that go beyond the usual, using Wialon to prevent accidents, maintain elevators, and optimize the operations in private hospitals.
Today we will tell about the project of Gurtam partner from Ukraine – UMT company – that makes the most of Wialon to automate an in-house filling station in Veltum-Zaporozhye LLC.
Veltum-Zaporozhye LLC provides waste management services in Ukraine. Before Wialon, they used another monitoring system, but were dissatisfied with the quality of software and services. While operating the departmental filling station located onsite, the customer constantly faced a number of difficulties:
It became clear that the processes at the filling station should be automated. The company announced a tender, and UMT offered the best solution.
At first glance, the project may seem quite simple: integrating Wialon with the internal control system of the filling station and getting the necessary data. However, UMT had a kind of surprise here: there was no such a system!
Our partner decided to repair the defective column and upgrade the rest (flow sensors were already installed). In addition, UMT installed a LED display, control panel, power supply, automatic switch, RFID reader, and SmartBox 5.02 GPS terminal, which transmits all the information to Wialon.
Now every driver is given an RFID card. To fuel, you need to put the card close to a reader and specify the amount of fuel required. Without the ID card nothing works. So, only the drivers saved in the memory of the reader can use the filling station services.
UMT found an efficient and affordable Wialon-based solution. As a result, there is no need to buy new fuel-filling columns, and all customer requirements are met. Let's check the list:
Despite the success of the project, UMT is still improving the system. Here are some innovations planned:
The project implemented by UMT has once again shown the wide functionality of Wialon. Transport monitoring and fuel consumption control are only a small part of what you can offer your customers as an integrator. So, use Wialon for 100% and even more!
