The Virtual Forge partners with Fleet Innovations to deliver industry leading mileage capture solution

The Virtual Forge engaged with Fleet Innovations in mid 2012 to develop an industry leading GPS based mileage capture solution. Through the affiliation with Fleet Innovations The Virtual Forge got the opportunity to extend the system out to All Star fuel card services , the UK’s largest fuel card company to develop an automated system that ensures accurate payment of business and private fuel usage for organisations.

The Peak Mileage GPS capture solution uses a small USB powered GPS device that can be inserted into the USB port or cigarette lighter of any car or van on the market today. Once in place it uses GPS technology to track a drivers journey to an accuracy of around 10 meters over 100 miles.

The GPS coordinates are then simply uploaded to our PEAK Mileage capture portal where a driver can complete an accurate mileage claim in less than 2 minutes.

The development work carried out by The Virtual Forge included industry scale PHP Rich Internet Applications and SQL database development and on desktop driver development. In Spring of 2013 there will be an iOS application and by Summer an Android version of the app. The system is scaled to support over 125,000 users and is quickly becoming the leading mileage capture solution in the UK, with future expansion planned globally.

Dreamtek were commissioned to help build the YouTube Creator Space studios. Google wanted to create a flexible broadcast space that could be used by YouTube partners across Europe, Middle East and Africa.

We helped with the design, build and installation of the space. We aimed to make an extremely flexible video creation suite. The idea is that creators can walk into a studio, choose what equipment they want to use and set the place up for their specific project.

This means that we’ve made the space configurable: Cameras are on movable tripods; Lighting desks are on trolleys.

Get in touch if you want to discuss a TV or internet broadcast studio solution.
