Adelaide courier company Aceit Transport Solutions has more than doubled its turnover in the past three years using state-of-the-art technology developed by Australian transport specialist JAIX Software.
Aceit uses the JAIX MetroLink software, which includes GPS (Global Positioning System) and digital communications technology, to manage its fleet of more than 90 couriers. This has allowed the company to boost deliveries by more than 20 per cent in the past year.
During 2007, JAIX has provided Aceit with a new generation of smart software that integrates satellite navigation and digital communications technology into a system that makes life easier for Aceit, its couriers and their customers. The GPS version of MetroLink provides:
Customers with self-service via the Internet for placing bookings and job “track and trace”
Couriers with handheld computers that seamlessly record every delivery detail, and
Dispatchers with GPS map-based tracking of every courier, customer and booking.

Leading broadband router brand, Billion, has launched an Australian first, a “mobile hotspot” that blends ADSL2+ broadband connectivity with backup Internet access through mobile phone networks.
Billion's BiPAC 7300GX dual-interface firewall and router provides broadband access via 3G mobile phone networks in case ADSL on a phone line drops out or is not available.
With four Ethernet ports and 802.11g wireless networking, the BiPAC 7300GX stands out through its ability to act as a “mobile hotspot” for road warriors. The compact unit even comes with a 12-volt car adapter to let you charge it from your car's cigarette lighter when you’re on the move.
Billion’s Australian distributor PC Range has tested the BiPAC 7300GX device with Australian 3G networks. Customers can buy a 3G data card, which plugs into a PCI card slot in the unit, from their preferred mobile phone service provider.
