Using your fleet more efficiently
V-tron has developed the business-line software Carsharing especially for the business market to deploy vehicle fleets as efficiently as possible in a simple way. After all, by making your vehicles available to all your employees, they have easy and quick access to temporary transport. As a result, your fleet can often become smaller in size. This saves on investments and fixed costs.
Through Carsharing, an employee reserves a vehicle, which can be picked up at the agreed time and place. Opening the vehicle can be done with the special reservation card (chip card) or a smartphone. After use, the vehicle is returned and signed out with the reservation card or smartphone.
V-tron’s Carsharing reservation and management system provides clear insight into vehicle usage. Who, when, where and how. The software provides clear answers to all these questions. Things like driving behaviour, consumption, fuel level and vehicle location can also be monitored in real time with the online software.

The functions of Carsharing:
Vehicle management system
With an RFiD reader mounted on the windscreen, the car can be locked or unlocked when the customer holds an active reservation card in front of the reader.
All (trip) information such as odometer readings are sent in real time to the Carsharing online management system.
Besides the RFiD reader, there is also the option of using a smartphone to open the car.
This works via a QR code on the vehicle windscreen. Due to the user-density of smartphones, this option is very suitable for business vehicles and vehicles with limited running time, i.e. installation and removal costs.
Even in areas where there is no GSM coverage, V-tron’s Carsharing system can continue to identify customers.
This can be especially important for companies that park their vehicles in an underground car park or in remote areas. Needless to say, this feature simplifies operation.
Through the integrated web application, Carsharing can be used for pre-ordered reservations as well as spontaneous reservations.
In Carsharing, one or more Master keycards can be used for operational staff, for example for vehicle retrieval.
In case of a security issue, Carsharing can provide real-time tracking and report an up-to-date status of the vehicle.
Fuel level reading
When using Fuel Sensor, the fuel status of the vehicle can be measured. This option is available for any fuel cards, e.g. MTC, TC or Shell.
The small size of the built-in unit allows it to be installed deep inside the feed rig. This prevents discovery and sabotage.
The built-in unit has an optional backup battery, which keeps status and life tracking reports even when the unit is switched off. This is especially useful in case of theft.
In case the vehicle goes outside a defined zone, an alarm is immediately triggered.
Impact-Sensor, instant alerts via SMS or email of any impact greater than 8G (frontal) or 3G (side).
Carsharing is aware of its reservation status and may issue warnings in case of unauthorised use.
When mobile coverage is unreliable or absent, the system’s memory can remember up to 2256 messages (30 days of usage). This data will be transmitted immediately when coverage is resumed. Logged events are stored indefinitely, even in case of failure of both primary and backup power sources.
