Setting Up & Using Places (Geofences)

Places are a key part of Zubie's location alerts and reporting.  We suggest adding the most common places your vehicles drive, like your offices and top customers.  You can also add "no drive" zones.

A place is simply any GPS point, with a configurable radius (from 1/10th a mile to 25 miles). 


How Places are Used

Zubie uses Places in the following ways:

1) Live Map

Places can be shown in Live Map, giving you context on where your vehicles are currently located, or when analyzing trip history.  (> Places)

2) Trips List in Live Map, Trip Exports and Trip Reports

Place names are shown instead of the address for saved place.

3) Visits Reports & Dashboard (Coming Soon)

Need to prove to a customer how much time you spent at their location, or how many visits were made over a month?

The Visits Report, and the Visits Dashboard, summarize activity for any saved Place.

4) Arrival & Departure Alerts 

Optionally you can get real-time alerts as vehicles come or go from saved places (you can turn this on/off for each place).


5) Dispatching Nearby Drivers

In Live Map, you can Search using the name of a saved Place, and lookup the closest drivers based on Google traffic data.



Setting Up Places


Setup places in the Zubie portal, or in the Zubie mobile app.
