Create a New Participant – Creating New Participants in the Affiliate’s OA Account and Synchronizing Participants’ Telematics Data

An Affiliate is a Route4Me partner who has the Route4Me Operational Assessment (OA) system integrated into their business or organization for analyzing their customers or a reseller who rebrands Route4Me’s services and offers them to end-users, as well as uses the Route4Me OA system for attracting new customers by showing them the value of optimization. Participants are the customers (companies/businesses) or end-users associated with the given Route4Me Affiliate. As a Route4Me OA Affiliate, you can create and manage multiple Participants within your organization/OA account. All Participants associated with your OA account can import vehicle and routing data into their OA accounts by establishing a Telematics Connection between their OA account and Telematics Vendor, and as an Affiliate, you can see all their imported tracking data in your Affiliate Dashboard and all their imported vehicle data on your Vehicles Map.

 

To create a new Participant in your OA Affiliate account:

  1. Go to “User Management” from the navigation menu at the top;
  2. Go to the “Participants” tab;
  3. Click on the “Create New” button in the “Participants” tab.

To do so, first, go to the “Telematics Connections” tab.

Once you created the new Participant and established a Telematics Connection between the new Participant and this Participant’s Telematics Vendor, the Participant’s Telematics Vendor will start sending the tracking data captured by the Participant’s telematics device(s) to this Participant’s OA account, and you will be able to see all imported tracking data in your Affiliate Dashboard and all imported vehicle data on your Vehicles Map.
