The core of the CompassCom MRM platform delivered, installed and configured to meet the requirements of the customer. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) technology enables your workforce to use the best hardware and IoT technology in the field to meet your workflow requirements.

CompassCom cloud PaaS delivers the full functionality of CompassLDE from the Cloud with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) technology. Mobile devices report to a secure platform in a Managed Cloud or Private Cloud-enabling connectivity via our web service API. IT professionals get to tailor their environments to deploy and update the software on their own terms. LDEStream cloud PaaS helps organizations drive innovation and business transformation with real-time location and IoT data.

CompassReports enables a higher level of command and control through on-the-fly analytics and past-performance reporting of your mobile workforce. Analytics enable after-action planning and data to support decisions to improve efficiency and safety. Reports and analytics to support decision making and after-action plans. Reports on individual assets, groups or the entire enterprise. Report time and filters are defined by the user.

  • Mileage: Reports mileage driven by selected vehicles or vehicle groups. The report can be filtered for specific IoT inputs (e.g. miles with sirens on or off, miles with plow down).
  • Speed: Reports average and max speed, duration, and location for instances where speed surpassed a preset speed for a certain vehicle or vehicle group. The report can be filtered for specific IoT inputs (e.g. sirens off or on) or for a specific Street Name.
  • Job/Stop/Idle: Used to determine stop or idle events. Duration and speed are used for the calculations. Running this report with an “Ign On” will produce an idle report.
  • Geofence: Know when a vehicle moved in and out of a user-defined geofence. Determine time spent in a buffered area around a point, a route or even the city. Determine asset utilization for job locations or features.
  • Inputs: Used to determine miles and duration of IoT input events, such as lights on/off, plow up/down, broom up/down or any other IoT inputs that may be wired on the mobile asset.
  • Turn: Used to determine the number of left vs safer right turns.
  • Activity: This report is useful to ensure that all the wireless GNSS and IoT devices are operational.
  • Snow: Used to summarize material usage, material type, and temperature averages for snow events. When and where materials are applied.
  • Schedule Reports: Allows you to schedule reports to run and be sent to email for any of the above reports.
  • Custom Reports Available

Real-time alerts where and when user-defined action occurred.

  • Speeding, geofence, check engine or other IoT status alarms sent to the CompassTrac viewer.
  • Configure the appropriate user to receive SMS text message or email to their mobile device or desktop
  • Alerts are archived for after-action reporting and analysis
  • Real-time alerts allow enhanced command and control
  • Prevent expensive repairs on vehicles by having the driver take appropriate action
  • Identify potential problems and respond before things get out of control
  • The digital message of status is more efficient than making a call
  • Alerts can recognize hot spots and trends in the field as things happen

The CompassCom apps that changes your operationl intelligence.

The CompassTracker App enables organizations using the CompassCom MRM solution to track their field personnel in real-time within the same Esri ArcGIS environment where they track vehicles, IoT sensors, and other high-value assets.

The new CompassTracker Apps significantly enhance the safety and efficiency of field personnel carrying their smartphones. The App is  available for use on all Apple iOS, Google Android and Microsoft Windows Mobile devices.

With the CompassTracker App, organizations can leverage many of the analytic functions within the CompassCom MRM system to enhance the performance and accountability of their field crews. By monitoring the movement of people, vehicles and other assets, organizations improve their overall operational efficiency as well as personnel productivity.

CompassTracker also enables organizations to enact a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ policy which saves money by allowing them to track personnel on the smartphones they already carry instead of buying mobile devices and additional data plans for them.

ESRI Geo Event Connector

CompassCom has released the CompassLDE® Connector to the ESRI® ArcGIS GeoEvent Processor available in ArcGIS 10.2 or newer versions.  Available since March 2014, GeoEvent Processor users will be able to integrate with the CompassLDE® Server to provide a plug and play solution with most any wireless communications networks, and multiple hardware devices. Once connected, users will be able to leverage the ESRI® GeoEvent processor’s real-time GIS capabilities while using CompassCom’s proven AVL suite of reporting and viewer software, to provide the best of breed solution.

CompassCom provides industry-standard hardware from providers like CalAmp®, Sierra Wireless®, Motorola® and Trimble® delivered with a choice of wireless service providers, to support a real-time solution. CompassCom offers vehicle installation and integration support services to ensure quick and successful integration to the ESRI® GeoEvent Processor. CompassAVL® not only tracks asset location, speed, and heading. But also discrete data events such as snowplow blade up or down, emergency lights on or off, or a street sweeper’s broom on or off. CompassCom also integrates with onboard vehicle diagnostic equipment, multiple road material spreader manufacturers for snow removal, private radio systems, smartphones, and handheld GPS units.

Existing CompassLDE® and GeoEvent Processor users can download the connector via the ESRI® GeoEvent Processor Gallery, at no charge and immediately develop real-time applications. New customers receive the CompassAVL® bundle directly from CompassCom. This includes the CompassLDE® connector, CompassAVL® viewer, installations scripts and a GeoEvent Processor configuration file. Configuration between the CompassLDE® connector and the ESRI® ArcGIS GeoEvent processor is accomplished entirely within the GeoEvent Processor configuration interface. This is documented in both the CompassCom and ESRI® documentation. CompassCom will provide new customers the vehicle hardware, installation, wireless service, and CompassLDE® server software to seamlessly integrate into the GeoEvent Processor. Once connected GeoEvent Processor users are able to leverage CompassCom’s real-time AVL expertise. The GeoEvent Processor provides the means to filter, and query live mobile asset data and output to various formats.

Out of the box, users will be able to display real-time information from the GeoEvent Processor via REST services directly into the CompassAVL® viewer. The viewer is developed with the ESRI ArcGIS API for JavaScript, and is fully customizable. Also included with the CompassLDE® Connector is a 30 day free trial of the CompassTrac® Viewer, which has additional functionality not included in the CompassAVL® viewer. As well as a trial to CompassReports® which is CompassCom’s AVL data reporting product.
