- Cost model: Badger is endlessly scalable (and shareable) at no additional charge, so companies paying the low monthly fee ($99.99) are saving tens of thousands of dollars annually on freight tracking.
- Accuracy: Badger updates driver positions four times an hour and then once every 5 minutes when the driver is within 200 minutes of the destination. ETAs are updated automatically. It’s accuracy never seen before in fleet tracking systems.
- Ease of use: Badger uses existing technology (iPhones and Android phones), is simple to bring to your fleet, hands-free for drivers on the road, and has a freight tracking dashboard that’s elegant and accessible on any device.
