Stolen bus recovered by police using BIGmate's GPS technology
Police recently recovered a mini bus which was stolen from a Melbourne tour bus depot with the help of GPS tracking technology provided by BIGmate Monitoring Services.
The bus was not meant to be operational that day, but when our customer logged in early that morning to check his fleet as usual, he noticed the bus was moving!
An early morning call to BIGmate support to ensure what he was seeing was in fact correct, prompted him to check the depot immediately and sure enough the bus was missing!
