Alerts warn the user that an event has occurred. They can be used to help you better manage your fleet by warning you when an event has happened. For example, if you are concerned about your driver's speeding habits, you can create an excessive speed alert to warn you every time he or she travels above a preset limit.

Alerts can be created for the entire group or just one item. When an alert occurs it can be sent to multiple email addresses or a mobile phone. The alert can also be displayed on the map with a unique icon. In addition, a Pop-Up Box can be shown on the Platform requiring either an Option or Required Response.
