TrackingTheWorld recently announced the continued availability of private label websites for the company’s GPS tracking software. With a private label website, provided upon the purchase of a software license, resellers have the ability to offer their own customers subscription-based GPS tracking services under their own company name.
“Our GPS tracking software is a great option for those interested in starting their own GPS tracking business, and generating monthly recurring income,” said Gilbert Walz, CEO of TrackingTheWorld.
The private label websites offer a platform from which the site owner manages his or her own customer accounts. TrackingTheWorld’s software purchase agreement allows resellers to set monthly subscription rates for their customers.
GPS tracking devices are increasingly common among businesses, often for the purpose of vehicle tracking and fleet management, and among law enforcement agencies for covert tracking operations. According to some estimates, the GPS tracking market is projected to grow up to 40-percent, reaching the $1-billion mark by 2017. Some software resellers choose to market to a specific niche, while others choose to sell to the general public, or both.
GPS tracking software is recognized as effective business tool for increasing productivity and efficiency through applications such as employee monitoring and safety, conserving fuel, and mileage tracking, making it a cost effective choice for business owners.
TrackingTheWorld’s GPS tracking software is exclusively designed to work with the company’s own GPS tracking devices. Licensed software resellers receive best pricing on TrackingTheWorld GPS tracking equipment.

Where did you come from and where are you going? That’s what Napa County officials want to know, and why they plan to use GPS tracking data to analyze the area’s traffic patterns in hopes of improving congested traffic areas. According to a recent report, the GPS tracking information will be obtained through a private firm specializing in collecting anonymous GPS cell phone data. The study will also utilize photographic images of license plates, and corresponding home addresses which will be obtained through the BMV. Additional components of the study will include traffic counters at the entrances of area wineries, a major tourist attraction in the area, and surveys distributed through the public school system.

According to a recent CBS news report, a California senate bill, SB57, requires sex offenders who remove or tamper with their GPS tracking devices to spend a mandatory 6-months in jail. The bill comes in response to the increase in monitoring of the state’s offenders via GPS due to a law passed two years ago to relieve prison overpopulation, which was designed to send offenders to jail instead of prison. But, due to overcrowding in jails as well, some offenders spend little or no time behind bars, and instead are released to home and monitored via GPS tracking bracelets.
According to a recent report, a North Carolina State University study recently monitored, via GPS tracking, the activity of six free-range cheetahs residing in a wildlife park in Africa to study if high speed is the only factor in the animals’ ability to successfully hunt prey. It turns out that, while cheetahs have the ability to outrun their prey, successful hunting is a savvy combination of speed, maneuvering skills, and positioning. The report compared the cheetahs’ behavior, monitored by GPS tracking collars, to the movements of a race car, or an initial burst of speed followed by stealthy movements and navigating turns.
A Connecticut program designed to provide early warning to domestic violence victims when their assailants get too close may be expanding. Currently available in the cities of Hartford, Danielson, and Bridgeport, victims receive automated alerts via GPS tracking software and a GPS tracking ankle bracelet when an assailant comes within 5,000 to 2,500 feet. The program costs $22 per day per offender, which adds up to $2 million per year. Approximately one-third of Connecticut court cases are tied to domestic violence. Read more on this story.
Have you ever tried driving a 12-foot box truck under an 11-foot bridge? If you have, then you know that it doesn’t work and that it can also create huge, expensive messes, not to mention injuries. According the Boston Herald, officials are sending heads up notifications to GPS tracking companies such as Garmin and TomTom to update GPS tracking software to include warnings for low bridges and overpasses.
The effort is to prevent accidents among new Boston drivers, especially college students and their parents, who will likely be heavily relying on their GPS tracking systems to make it to campus neighborhoods. As one might imagine, the problems created include damage to bridges, traffic delays, and possible injuries.
It’s no secret that business owners are continuously looking for ways to save money without sacrificing the quality of the product or service offered. For those interested in cutting payroll costs, monitoring employees, and saving fuel, GPS tracking software provides a cost effective and practical way to slim many business budgets. Here are our top three tips for saving money with GPS technology:
Cut Fuel Costs
If prices at the pump are draining you dry, you should consider GPS tracking devices and software for your business fleet–especially if you offer delivery services or use company vehicles for service calls. With GPS trackers in company vehicles and the help of GPS tracking software, dispatchers know exactly where each vehicle is at all times and can easily dispatch the appropriate vehicle to each call. Saved miles equals saved fuel– and less wear and tear on your fleet.
Reduce Payroll Costs
At one time or another, every business owner has wondered is their payroll costs are a true reflection of the amount of work they are receiving from employees. GPS tracking software can help you assure that employees aren’t misusing company time. For example, the software can tell you if your employees are where they say they are at any given time, monitor the idle time of every vehicle during the work day, and assure that overtime hours are honest.
Save Time with Automated Reporting
Does your staff spend too much time logging and compiling mileage data for reports? Our GPS tracking software with multiple reporting options allows you to accurately track mileage and automatically and easily generate the necessary reports based on archived data. It’s a great way to end old-fashioned pen and paper mileage logs.

While we often have a lot to say about GPS trackers for your business, covert tracking operations, and personal protection, we haven’t discussed much about GPS tracking in sports. Here’s the latest: We just read that multiple NFL teams, including the Dallas Cowboys and the Baltimore Ravens are using GPS tracking devices to track players during some games and practices. Although it may sound like it, the tracking devices aren’t to make sure the players make it to practice–or are where they say they are. Turns out, NFL teams are using the tracking devices to glean important data about how much players exert themselves during select games and practices.
Using a small tracking device placed inside pads on the player’s back and special GPS tracking software, coaches and medical staff then have answers to questions such as how far a player is running in practice, how fast they are running, exactly where they are on the field during plays, and more. By scoring the amount of effort a player is exerting, it is easier to determine which players are at risk for injury. For example, if a specific player is found to have higher exertion on too many consecutive days, coaches reasonably assume that the player is at greater risk for injuries, and actually reduce the risk of injury by assigning the player to lighter practices.

A New Jersey man who installed a GPS jammer on his vehicle in hopes of outsmarting his bosses has instead been fined $32,000. Turns out his GPS jamming device also interfered with the testing of GPS tracking systems on planes at an airport near his location. GPS jammers (illegal in the United States) are devices which block GPS signals from being sent to or from a vehicle.

Officials in Steamboat Springs, Colorado hope that real time GPS tracking systems deployed on city buses will allow citizens to minimize outdoor wait times in chilly winter weather. The city is set to have GPS tracking devices installed on all 20 of their public transportation buses later this year. By allowing bus riders to monitor the location of their buses, and thereby delays in the schedule, patrons will be able to plan accordingly. The estimated cost of the program is $82,000, with $65,000 coming from state grant funding.
