Checkmate Services needed a secure system to track their cash vans which plied between ICICI bank's branches and ATMs. QDnet developed a specialized solution that enables tracking, monitoring and control of the entire fleet at any time, from any where.
The Checkmate Group was founded by Vikram Mahurkar, in the year 1987 at Vadodara, India. Currently, it is a name to reckon with, in the highly competitive safety and security industry. The Checkmate Group offers the following services: Guarding, Cash Management, Security Audits & Consultancy, Antecedent Verification, Facility Management, Executive Protection, Electronic Security Solutions and Event Security Management.
ICICI bank out-sources their cash in transit operations and puts Checkmate in charge of the safe transfer of cash between the bank's branches and ATMs. As these cash vans did not have any monitoring device and often had to make several stops a day, their system was not adequately secure. Checkmate approached QDnet for a system that allows management personnel to see the location of all their cash vans from anywhere in the world. They needed a highly secure option for cash vans across India to safeguard against theft and hijackings.
The QDnet Solution
QDnet developed a unit specifically suited to Checkmate's high-security application, which was web based so as to allow access from any location where internet is available. Among several features that made the unit more secure were browser alerts that popped up on the screens of all users of the application if the cash compartment door was opened or the panic button was pressed. These pop-up alerts could only be acknowledged and turned off by authorized personnel, so staff and management were forced to review them. The unit was also fitted with an immobilizer that could halt the vehicle and turn on a siren from any remote location, though web access. Since, Checkmate was providing ICICI Bank its' services across India, cash vans were being monitored through Ahmedabad, Surat, Madras, Mangalore, Chandigarh, Bangalore, Rajkot, Hyderabad, Trichy, Goa and other major cities.
This application makes monitoring tracked vehicles easy and accessible as it is web based. The remote siren and immobilizer makes the application more secure, this application can be coupled with geo fencing to provide better mobile asset management and fleet management.
