By streamlining the support process AMI customers have access to support within minutes and can report a theft at the touch of a button ensuring all relevant information is relayed to the AMI team to act upon without delay. With the extra features available AMI customers do not need to wait until they are at a computer to update asset information or schedule an immobilisation command - they immediately have vital information at their fingertips from their mobile phone or other mobile device."
The AMI Nexis app gives organisations control and visibility of their plant or vehicle fleet. Using the app, AMI customers can track equipment using Google mapping and immobilise equipment. The app is intended to be highly user friendly and is available to supplement the company's AMI Nexis web-based software portal.
AMI Group's state-of-the-art tracking devices are covertly installed on plant machinery such as excavators, generators and compressors to provide the ultimate in anti-theft protection. Developed using advanced GPS (Global Positioning System), GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), RF (Radio Frequency) and battery powered technology, customers can logon to the AMI Nexis web-based portal to establish the location of plant equipment in the event of it being stolen. Customers can also use the system as a total fleet management solution to help reduce their fuel costs, reduce their carbon footprint or enhance productivity - and they can even remotely immobilise equipment from their mobile phone.
The company's tracking devices utilise a private APN system which detects the strongest network signal available and sends its data using the best available network. This ensures optimal coverage and helps to eliminate black spots and loss of coverage. In situations where GPS is unavailable, the device relays GSM cell site positions and the internal RF beacon can be activated to assist in locating stolen assets (subject to the type of device fitted).
