An Automated Vehicle Location (AVL) solution improves the safety and productivity of field operations while helping to reduce fleet and fuel costs. The Esri Canada AVL solution extends beyond most vehicle tracking solutions by allowing you to both track vehicles in real-time and create route status reports, easily share data and take advantage of historical playback tools to effectively manage your operations. 

Built on Esri’s world-leading ArcGIS platform, the AVL solution allows you to centrally manage your fleet operational processes.

The ability to quickly locate snowplows at all times on a dynamic map allowed us to clear priority roads first. The AVL solution allows us to monitor the kilometres travelled and the amount of salt and sand spread by our trucks. This enables us to accurately determine the financial and environmental costs of our winter operations.
