The outgoing year 2020 was definitely not easy for almost everyone, but we all tried our best. And here are TOP 3 things that we want to tell you about last year of our GPS-Trace platform and the Ruhavik application.
First thing to start with: The Beta Test was completed and Ruhavik was released. It has included the best of what we have worked on. And the shabby GPS-Trace Orange was finally closed. And then, we were able to focus on the new one and started to develop it.
So let’s get started.
1. How we have been growing
Now we have about 90k connected devices and more than 30k users in a day.
For clarity, you can see the graph below. It shows the growth of online devices connections to our new flespi gateway.

… And how we have been helping our users
Our application and service just were getting better and better. And the count of questions and bug reports from our users was decreasing throughout the entire time.
However we responded to almost 2,500 letters over the past year.
…and we are trying to fill it with new information to help you navigate better in our application.
For the first time, we managed to add not just regular screenshots, but also interactive elements that help you to discover step by step the desired page or function.
If we talk about you, our users, then your reviews on Google Play Market and Apple App Store have gotten better and better. And at this moment our application Ruhavik is rated more than 4.3 stars of 5.

We want to say thank you very much. We really read everything you write. Let’s talk even more in 2021!
2. What cool features we released
We will not talk about how much we improved the UI, such as configurable control buttons, imperial system of measures, dark theme, and much, much more…
Let’s talk about something more interesting.
One of our new additions to the app is the Dashboard tab, which has a lot of handy tools like Timeline, Mileage and Total Mileage.
These tools accumulate information and provide it in a more convenient and visual form as charts for example.
So in the Timeline, you can see all the events that took place with the unit a certain day.
In the Mileage, you can see the unit’s mileage per day, week or month and compare it with the mileage of other units for the same period. More details can be seen on the chart.
Many of our users use Ruhavik to improve the security of their vehicle. So, we worked on this aspect as well.
First of all — it’s «Security mode». It helps when you leave your vehicle for long parking. As soon as the position of the unit in this mode changes, you receive a notification. Also now you can enable the option for receiving notifications about towing.
Second — Quick option to lock and unlock the relay. For example, to block the relay. This is one of the most requested features from you. Сurrently it is available on devices from several manufacturers. But we plan to evolve it in the future.
And of course it is worth mentioning that we have added the possibility to flexibly configure notifications via Telegram, email and webhook. But this configuration is available only with the premium-subscription.
3. How we have been transforming and evolving
In 2020, GPS-Trace became a platform. This platform will integrate a variety of specialized solutions.
We noticed that several different audiences work with us at once. Some people need to take care of their car. They need a simple and convenient interface without unnecessary groupings, complex settings, and so on.
At the moment we have one:
Ruhavik — application for personal vehicles. We focused on it at first, cause we wanted to make one of the best solutions on the market.
Considering how much our audience liked it, we plan to continue developing it.
The second ones need to have a lot of vehicles in one account — these are small and medium businesses. Here, of course, we recommend using the old and proven Wialon.
Still others use it for their pets. And we have made a decision that we will release a second application on this subject in early 2021.
We are not going to stop here. And there are plans to develop tools for those people who distribute and install telematics equipment. If this is you and you are interested in cooperation, you know where to write (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Well, good year to you. And, we just have started!
