Do we have to pay for each active user of the platform?
No, there is no charge for each platform user account. The creation of user accounts and the scope of access to Fleetvisor areas, is controlled and implemented by the customer. So whether you have 1 person using the system or grant access to 50 employees - the cost of using the platform will be the same.

Is Astrata integrated with integration platforms?
Yes, we are integrated with the most important platforms in the market: Project44, Sixfold, Fourkites, or Shippeo. This means that vehicles equipped with Astrata units are visible in the listed systems, and therefore to your customers.

What is the installation of the devices?
Installation of devices in vehicles can be carried out in 3 ways: using the designated Astrata service, using a mobile installer, or on your own (Astrata provides installation schemes).
What does the servicing of the equipment involve?
Most problems are solved by the Hotline team available to you, which remotely diagnoses and repairs possible unit failures. If this proves impossible - the same day sends a replacement unit to the customer. Astrata service centers located throughout Europe are also available to you.

Do we become the owners of the equipment at the end of the rental period?
No, Astrata remains the owner of the equipment even after the end of the contract period. It is possible to buy back the units, however, this is an individual business conversation.
What do I need to do to remotely download data from the driver's card?

What is the MDM service?
The MDM (Mobile Device Management) service means that Astrata remains responsible for all administrative steps on the tablet. This increases user security and reduces the risk of user interference in areas that may interfere with device operations.
