Time to get Simplicate ...

This project was so much fun to work on. There was nothing on the market that met the requirements of the project. At first, we didn’t think it could be done given the tools we had at our disposal. However, after a little time spent on research and development, we came up with a solution.

We connected the trucks to a GPS monitoring service and then wrote an application that would track each trucks movement in relation to the store and update the arrows independantly on both sides of the truck once every 5 seconds.

By the numbers...

The combination of the GPS devices and the wireless internet access in the trucks allowed us to develop an autonomous system that took the trucks speed, travelling direction and distance from the stores into account. The 5 second refresh time made sure that the signage stayed up to date even while turning.

What our client had to say...

Clients often come to us with wild ideas
and we hate telling them something can’t be done.

On two occasions now, Simplicate was able to invent creative ways to transform our clients' pie-in-the-sky marketing campaign fantasies into functioning realities.

I’d recommend giving Steve and his team a call anytime you can’t quite figure out a solution to your web related problems.
