BigChange launches world's first 4G mobile app for transport, fleet and service operators

Jan 14, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- BigChange has introduced the world's first all-in-one 4G telematics and mobile app for transport, fleet and field service operators. Connecting drivers, engineers and fleets seamlessly to the office via the mobile Internet, the BigChange JobWatch Office App connects to the JobWatch multi-functional mobile app that runs on a rugged touchscreen mobile computer that can be used as a fixed or portable device.

JobWatch is an easy, plug-and-go mobile solution that helps companies plan, manage and schedule their mobile workforce. The cloud solution includes everything from a rugged mobile computer, mobile communications to black box GPS vehicle tracking, Sat-Nav, work and delivery management, timesheet, expense recording and vehicle defect reporting for only GBP39.95 a month.

The cloud-based 4G telematics is provided as Software as a Service (SaaS), which significantly reduces the cost of mobile computing, eliminating the need for individual expensive software packages, multiple hardware and costly systems integration.

Running on the latest IP54 -rated BigChange 7-inch and 4-inch fixed-mount or portable computers, which incorporate built in tracking, the cloud-delivered apps enable any size of fleet operator to benefit from powerful, labour and time saving solutions. Users simply turn on or off the specific features, enabling them to tailor the solution to fit their exact requirements. If they want to add more apps in the future, it is a simple matter of switching them on.

JobWatch is an 'out of the box' solution that covers all areas of live reporting, GPS vehicle tracking, Sat-Nav, mobile communications as well as workflow management, timesheets, driver debrief and feedback, expenses, delivery management, stock management, and it report vehicle defects. The development helps companies improve customer service, increase billable time and eliminate paperwork in the office and on the road.

"At BigChange we have revolutionised telematics by developing a fourth generation solution that delivers a multitude of mobile applications live over the Internet. With this cloud-based service, we simply install the BigChange mobile computer and our customers just choose the functions and features they wish it to use at the click of a button. There are no further integration issues as everything is delivered over the Internet direct to the in-cab computers," says Martin Port, CEO, BigChange.

"Our goal is to help our customers to revolutionise their businesses in these times of austerity and that means helping them become more profitable. JobWatch speeds cashflow by confirming job completion and enabling same day invoicing. It also optimises mobile worker time, enabling up to four more jobs a month to be completed and saving eight hours of admin time for each mobile worker. It will also save money by reducing fuel use by as much as 10 per cent, travel time by around 10 hours a month for each member of the mobile team and ensuring zero job failure," says Martin Port.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
