The Challenge

  • You sell the same products as your competitors and so need to find ways to differentiate your company from competitors.
  • You have customers that demand the ability to see assets and deliveries online.


The Customer Tracking Portal Module is used to allow your customers to log into TrackAbout and see information on assets and deliveries.

  • Grant your customers permission to log into TrackAbout and view information about their assets.
  • Permissions are limited so a customer can only see their own information.
  • A customer can set up administrator users and manage their own logins.
  • With permission, customers can move assets around internally.
    • This can be done from the website or with their own handhelds.
