Tracker Installations

  • Updated

This article provides a guide on how to manage vehicle profiles and tracker installations in BigChange. It is crucial for users to understand these processes to effectively utilise the software and maintain an organised fleet.


Default Settings for New Tracker Installations

When BigChange installs a tracker on a vehicle, the following default settings are applied:

  • A new vehicle profile is created and the correct tracker is assigned to it.
  • The new vehicle profile includes the correct registration, make, and model.
  • The vehicle is placed in a group called 'New Install' for easy identification.



Re-assigning Vehicles Post-Installation

Once the tracker installation has been completed, you have the flexibility to:

  • Re-assign the vehicle to a different group
  • Fix it to a resource
  • Assign vehicle checks, etc.


Conducting Vehicle Checks and Storing Information for Untracked Vehicles

Even without a tracker installed, you can still carry out vehicle checks or store information against a profile. This is particularly useful for vehicles that aren't tracked (e.g., pool cars) or vehicles that do not leave the site (e.g., forklift trucks). These vehicles can be created using the vehicle set up described above and then used to record information such as service date, MOT, and insurance.



Understanding how to manage vehicle profiles and tracker installations in BigChange is essential for maintaining an organised and efficient fleet. Remember, even untracked vehicles can have profiles and checks assigned to them, ensuring all necessary information is recorded and easily accessible.
