Trackplot Ltd provides a range of easy to use online tools to help
businesses keep staff safe, assets secure and to manage them effectively.
Trackplot's new Portal uses advanced web based mapping technology,
integrated with the latest GPS devices, so customers can locate and
manage staff and assets as and when they want.
These 24/7 services assist employers to safeguard their lone workers and
comply with HSE regulations. People working alone outdoors are
particularly vulnerable, often working outwith mobile phone networks.
The Trackplot Portal allows them to communicate and their position to be
pinpointed at regular intervals. Workers using this system include
surveyors, bridge inspectors, ecologists, forestry workers and people
working on landed estates.
The Trackplot Portal can also be used to track assets, from vehicles or
high value goods such as trailers and tractors to livestock, for
logistical or operational reasons. The Portal has many applications - to
monitor the location of equipment and machinery; to demonstrate usage in
order to fulfil contracts; to monitor where livestock is grazing to
assess the utilisation of fields and the types of vegetation preferred;
to set geo-fences to ensure assets stay within set boundaries.
Agriplot, developed by Trackplot, provides bespoke mapping functionality
to allow farmers to streamline their annual Integrated Administration
Control System submissions to the Scottish Government. These submissions
detail information on their land and livestock. Agriplot can be used
all year round by farmers to assess plans as they are put into practice,
review and evaluate decisions having all the mapping information needed
at their fingertips.
Trackplot has been a client of Xtraordinary Hosting since 2010 utilising
a dedicated server and two virtual servers.
Gert Riemersma, Technical Director of Trackplot, said: "Trackplot is a
cloud-based operation, hosting the Trackplot Portal. With Xtraordinary
we don't have to worry about the set up and maintenance of servers,
allowing us to focus on our business.
"Reliable hosting is essential for our business - we cannot offer our
services without it. In particular, lone workers around the UK are
monitored with our Portal and it is critical that the service is
continuous 24/7. If employees are overdue or issue an alert, then the
Portal will send email and SMS messages to the lone worker's contacts to
notify them of this.
"We are pleased with the service we receive from Xtraordinary because,
to put it simply, it just works. We get high uptime and, if there is any
planned maintenance, Xtraordinary give us plenty of advance warning.
This is crucial as we provide mission critical systems for our clients.
Xtraordinary's response to queries is good and any issues are fixed in a
