What is SimpliRoute?
SimpliRoute is a data retransmission protocol that delivers vehicle location data and links it to the SimpliRoute order system. This allows users the ability to track orders that are managed within this software and that are synchronized with the vehicle positions obtained.
This data retransmission protocol is ideal for users looking to comply with Simpliroute data forwarding to track vehicle positioning.
