Security and Access rights Policy
B.I. allows role management and access rights policies. Using this feature you will be able to allocate and set what each specific user is allowed to see and do. This is usually done by an administrator or a verified user. Each user who is going to use the system will then be allocated a username and password. Upon logging in, the menu is set according to the logged in user and according to what rights are set to that user. Therefore you can set users who can add vehicle information in your system, but restrict access to the live tracking functionality.
