Affordable, custom smart phone apps for commercial users

14 years ago, ENAiKOON was founded as the first member of the Ventriga Group, in order to provide commercial customers with custom telematics solutions.
Tens of thousands of construction machines, vehicles, containers and other mobile objects have since then been connected to the ENAiKOON platform

Teleservice Holding AG, a Munich-based company that deals with telecommunications service, was added a few years later.
And today we are pleased to present you ginstr GmbH, the latest member of the Ventriga Group:

ginstr is a full sister company of ENAiKOON. Like ENAiKOON, ginstr focuses exclusively on commercial customers.
ginstr specialises in the digital collection of form data, the optimisation of work processes and the development of customised applications and business solutions for companies in all industries. This includes Internet connection and data transfer to headquarters. 

The focus is on implementing previously used paper forms as smart phone apps.

We have invested more than 1 million Euros in this technology to date, making it possible to convert almost any paper form into a smart phone app for a lump sum of only 790 Euros.
–>This provides ginstr customers with a number of valuable benefits:

Collected information is immediately available at headquarters

  • Current status information at headquarters at all times, in scheduling, for requests from customers, etc.: the transmission of collected data from smart phones to the office takes only a few seconds
  • Immediate collection of invoices for work performed
  • No more paper forms are lost
  • Filing must no longer be organised and arranged for the paper forms
  • The computer now takes care of searching for previously collected data

Better quality of collected data

  • No missing information
  • Information is checked for plausibility when entered
  • No data collection costs and no transcription errors from the form into the computer, as this step is no longer required
  • Electronic signature by customers and employees on their smart phone

Additional data that cannot be collected with a form

  • Images of work results, damage, conditions, etc.
  • Adding videos, voice messages, file attachments, GPS positions etc..

Data import and export

  • Existing data can be reused in the ginstr system
  • All collected data can be exported from the ginstr system for further processing in existing programs (e.g. accounting, scheduling, human resources, etc.)

Since the platform was released about a year ago, a number of companies have already decided to use the ginstr technology.

Never lose another container again! Efficient container management with telematics

Does your company deal with containers? If so, you’re probably familiar with lost containers and the hassle associated with locating them using tedious excel spreadsheets. Thanks to telematics, those days are now over.

ENAiKOON container tracking

ALBA R-plus, an international waste management and recycling company, had experienced these exact issues in the past. They have over 600 waste containers throughout Europe at various locations. Once the containers are full, they are picked up and sent for recycling. The problem is that they are all collected through a central collection system for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Other competing waste companies also have their containers collected there. It is possible to accidentally pick up another company’s container. Without a proper tracking system, a company can easily lose one of their containers to another, and this is exactly what happened at ALBA R-plus. Several containers went missing; no one knew where they were or which competing company had them. There was absolutely no way of telling their location, making it impossible to recover the missing containers.

That was, until they discovered telematics. They searched for a comprehensive tracking solution that would allow them to monitor every container’s location. ENAiKOON’s container management system includes robust yet discreet GPS tracking devices, affordable SIM cards, and a powerful, web-based software. ALBA R-plus equipped all of their containers with the ENAiKOON locate-15, a GPS tracking device with an internal battery that lasts for 10 years. The container’s location is sent to the ENAiKOON servers via an inexpensive SIM card, allowing real-time data transmission. This data is then viewed using the web portal, inViu web, which is accessible with any web browser.

“With the stand-alone tracking device, ENAIKOON locate-15, we receive a current location update for all of our containers every day, which is perfect for our container management,” comments Jean Ziemann, manager of ALBA R-plus. “The use of excel lists for our container accounting is a thing of the past. All we have to do is look in inViu web for the container location so that we can retrieve it for use again.”

The integrated map in inViu web displays the exact location of each container, making it easy to identify the trade flow of recycled goods when a competitor gets a contract to pick up the materials. Most importantly, their long search for missing containers is over. For more information on the container management system, visit our case study page or contact ENAiKOON at sales@enaikoon.com.
