The i-Meter box is connected to the silver connector of the i-Meter power/data cable assembly. The i-Meter input power/cables are connected to the electronic register cables, and then the i-Meter output power/cables are connected to the back of Epson TMU295 printer.
Next, the aerial antenna is connected to the i-Meter and mounted on the windscreen/windshield of the vehicle facing the sky.
Finally, the i-Meter box is secured inside the cab of the vehicle.
Installation requirements and times will vary with the model of vehicle but as a guide, we recommend allowing an hour. Once installed and the power is turned on, the i-Meter box begins to send GPS data up to the online dashboard and is ready to start working.
The i-Meter system allows deliveries to be tracked online and in real time. This software gives oil distributors the tools to accurately record what is being delivered, what quantity is being delivered as well as the time and location of the truck when the stock was delivered. In order to read the meter printout a device is plugged in between the electronic meter and the printer. This is a simple install process that can be complete in one hour. By integrating with the electronic meter system, this ensures that all data is meter driven and any fuel that is delivered or moved to another compartment will be recorded through i-Meter.
After the i-Meter box is installed in the vehicle, an online web dashboard can be accessed. The dashboard allows office staff to view the activity of the stock and vehicles which is plotted on Google Maps. Each delivery ticket can be viewed in PDF format. This information, helps to eliminate fraud as any stock discrepancies can be easily identified. With a tight margin on fuel sales, i-Meter ensures that every drop is accounted for and helps to protect the business owner AND the driver.
We show unplanned stops i.e. stops that have gone past an agreed company time. Now there are plenty of legitimate reasons for stopping, such as grabbing a bite to eat, having a break, etc. You can set a time limit on when you wish these unplanned stops to be displayed, most companies will choose something in the region of 30 mins. Once the vehicle has stopped for more than 30 minutes, you will see an icon in the form of a yellow warning triangle displayed on the map where the vehicle has stopped.
We also store previous unplanned stops that can be viewed at any time on the map.
i-Meter captures the GPS co-ordinates every 6 seconds and sends them up the to Map in the Dashboard. If the device goes into a bad cellular signal area, the i-Meter will still continue to capture the satellite GPS co-ordinates & time stamp them. Once the device comes back online, it will send up all the stored GPS co-ordinates so you can always see where the vehicle has been.
The trail function allows you to select a vehicle and see how the driver went about their day. It displays the route, unplanned stops and deliveries. You can pin point exactly where a vehicle was at any particular time.
Within the dashboard we have many reports available and they can be run per driver, vehicle, depot or company. These reports can also be run for a single day, date range, week, month, or year. This allows the User to access the data captured and turn it in to useful business matrix. For example, a popular report is a KPI that measures the quantity of litres delivered per driven Kilometre (Mile). This allows you to compare and contrast different drivers, identify what activity the better performing drivers are doing and try to eliminate the non-productive activity that is slowing down your drivers and improving conditions that impact driver productivity.
Other reports can highlight slow customer turnarounds, long delivery times, small deliver amounts, long delivery drive times, etc.

This is the ability to set up Areas / Zones / Locations, so that when a truck enters or leaves them, an alert is sent to show what time these events took place. Typical events that are being recorded/checked:
– How long are your trucks spending in the Terminal fuelling up?
– Are drivers being routed outside of their delivery zone?
– What time are drivers leaving the depot in the morning?
– Does your driver have to be a critical customers site before a certain time?
