We have recently completed a Northgate Telematics API integration for Morgan Sindall Infrastructure (MSI). MSI have approx. 2,500 fleet vehicles for which they needed vehicle tracking to include routes taken, distances travelled, and speed, plus to record risk management factors eg driver behaviour.
Our Northgate Telematics API software development tracks:
- Telemetry - location (long/lat, speed, altitude, heading, accuracy), sensor output
- Events - harsh braking, speeding etc
- Trips - tachograph analysis, start location, end location, drive time, idle time,
- Fleet management - assets, vehicle reg, owner
Our approach to this API development was to create a server app, written in .Net using visual studio 2019, to sit on a windows server, to be run as a task scheduler event i.e. a console type app.
The app is able to be configured via a txt config file to allow various parameters such as SQL connection strings, API Keys, end point, etc. to be configured if these items change in the future.
At the required scheduled time the app will connect to Northgate, using the API and request all available data. The data will be written back to a MS SQL database, and from this point Morgan Sindall use enterprise reporting tools to manage the fleet.
100's of 1000's of events are being captured every week. The timing, validation, and processing of this data is critical, to prevent data stacking up.
The app can support multiple instances running concurrently.

We have recently used Impact Technology to develop a bespoke software programme from scratch and found them to be incredibly accommodating and they had a real grasp of what we were attempting to achieve. From enquiry right through to post-completion we found Impact Technology were always willing to assist and clearly valued customer satisfaction and the end-product was exactly what we were looking to achieve. I would highly recommend their services accordingly.
