Pinpointers provide vehicle and coach tracking services for businesses in the UK, Ireland, and Europe. They allow businesses to keep track of their remote workforce's whereabouts and status in real-time. A small electronic box is fitted inside each vehicle and sends out signals at regular intervals detailing its location and speed. The most modern devices also relay vehicle performance and driver behavior data.
This information is accessible online using a web browser or mobile device. Users can arrange to receive alerts via email or SMS when a job is running late, a battery is low, a vehicle is idling excessively, etc. All of the service's online functions are available programmatically via SOAP API.
Of the many APIs we published this week, twelve were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those twelve, which included the WhateverWeb API. The WhateverWeb API gives developers access to the mobile developers toolkit via API calls. Specifically, the API is aimed to help developers take their websites and make them more adaptive, adding scalability and mobile optimization to their once exclusively web browser based sites. To learn more about the WhateverWeb API visit the WhateverWeb site as well as the WhateverWeb API blog post.
