Quartix Inc. is a well-known fleet management software and service provider that offers a variety of telematics solutions in Europe and in the United States, with an address listed in Chicago. It is frequently ranked among the best fleet management software providers in the industry.

In this review, we examine multiple aspects of this service to assist you in determining whether Quartix is a viable option for your company. Specifically, we look at prices, subscription options, support, and a suite of past customer reviews, in addition to its primary features and performance.

Quartix: Plans and pricing

Quartix previously offered highly tailored services, which enabled it to provide a clear breakdown of its prices and what is included in each subscription option. While this was a refreshing change from most fleet management service providers, it now shifted to custom pricing based on the needs of each client. This translates to a lack of transparent pricing, with custom quotes attainable only through contact with the company.

Quartix offers three fleet tracking plans, and while it doesn’t currently publish pricing information on its website, our previous research reveals that their cheapest plan, Info Point, starts at $14.90 per vehicle, per month. This plan offers a rather slow 2-minute live location updates, but does include many useful features including vehicle and driver logs, route maps, and privacy mode. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer Driver ID, driver behavior information, trip reports, and geofences. 

Moving up a tier is the Info Plus plan (starts at $18.90 per vehicle, per month) which adds IFTA mileage reporting, geofencing alerts, engine hour tracking, and driving style metrics. And finally, the top-tier Info Plus & Driver ID plan, (starts at $22.90 per vehicle, per month) which includes a driver ID reader and driver ID key. 

It’s worth noting that these mentioned prices, which are from our previous research and are not currently published online, were based on a 12-month contract term. New contracts also came with a free tracking device (valued at $199), with the option to purchase extra Driver ID keys for $10 each. Again, we cannot confirm that these are the current prices, so you’ll need to contact the company with your specific requirements for an accurate custom quote.

Quartix: How it works

To begin using Quartix, it is advisable to contact the team to discuss the best option for your company. The company currently operates in the United States, France, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom. 

After signing up and connecting your fleet to your central management dashboard, you will be ready to go. The dashboard is quite user-friendly and includes a complete set of telematics tools.

For instance, system administrators and managers can access a variety of statistics on driver performance, speed, and safety. You will be able to monitor your vehicles in real-time, and you can also create geofence alerts so that you will be notified immediately when a driver leaves a defined area.

Quartix: Features and services

Quartix is a relatively simple fleet management service provider, but it still offers a wide range of features that can help you streamline your standard workflow practices. As expected, there are a number of vehicle tracking features available, including 24/7 real-time monitoring. You can also view the current location of your fleet on a Google Maps interface, monitor and analyze activity, and access historical data. 

Quartix is a great driving style analysis tool because it tracks a variety of data and presents it in customizable reports. This data includes information about braking and acceleration patterns, speed and average speed, and long-term trends. This provides a comprehensive look at driver patterns in a easy to understand format.

Quartix also supports full geofencing with alerts. This allows you to specify certain areas or geographic zones, creating time-based rules and setting alerts for each one. When a driver enters or exits a zone, you will receive a real-time alert, letting you take immediate action if required. This is important feedback to keep control of any fleet of vehicles.

Tax time can certainly be a hassle for any business of this type, but Quartix has tools to help you simplify your fuel tax reports. It calculates and records your average fuel consumption, tracks the miles you've driven in each IFTA area, and generates comprehensive reports with the necessary information easing this burdensome task. 

Quartix: Support

Quartix’s customer service is excellent. In terms of live support, there is an online portal, and a direct number with hours of operation from Monday to Friday from 8:30 AM to 5 PM. However, we did not find options for chat or direct email, which would have been nice to see.

A collection of how-to video lessons, ebooks, and webinars that cover particular features and capabilities are also available. There is also additional content in the form of a blog, and customer stories to highlight the latest features. 

Additionally, Quartix has outstanding evaluations online, which suggests that their post-sale customer service is superb. For instance, it has a trustpilot.com rating of 4.7 out of 5, which is higher than the majority of other telematics providers.

Quartix: The competition

We definitely advise checking out Samsara if you're seeking a more potent fleet management solution. One of the best providers from around the globe, it provides a variety of superb vehicle tracking and monitoring choices for companies of all sizes. However, keep in mind that rumors claim it costs more than Quartix, although we cannot confirm the costs. 

Another option is US Fleet Tracking, which serves clients in more than 150 nations worldwide. This makes it a fantastic choice for global corporations operating across many nations, and it offers far more functionality than just basic car tracking. 

Quartix: Final verdict

Overall, we were really pleased with Quartix's quality of service. The solution provides straightforward yet effective fleet management capabilities, including real-time tracking as well as data gathering and analysis. Additionally, it does not appear to be the most expensive solution out there. 

In the end, if you're looking for a fleet management solution that performs what it has to do without a ton of complex features or extraneous frills, we'd suggest giving Quartix a close look.
